Found a new, good spot for my almost 100 foot tall, 8 prim Italian Cypress, at the other end of the way that leads to The Castle in The Rocks. Great Lilith Heart product, and one I’ve seen used in landscaping quite a lot while traveling around SL.

But we should really get to the, er, heart of the matter and enter the cathedral, the dominating structure of the town, and yet another Moard Ling freebie creation. What could be inside that’s glowing so much?

Well, it’s just our old friend, the 7-circuit labyrinth placed atop the No Room Cemetery a couple of weeks ago by Baker Blinker. The center of the sink, then, remains the same. It’s just all been built up around it now. Pietmond is born.

Baker tries out one of the several sleeping bags near Peter’s Mound itself on the western edge on what could be called the downtown area. The idea here is that pilgrims have come seeking spiritual inspiration from the proximity to Peter’s grave. I suppose I could call the particular, shorter way, then, “Peter’s Way.”

Baker sits on the second floor of another, possible personal residence within the town, called Orange House. There is also a Lemon House and a Lime House in Pietmond, all structurally identical with each other — another Moard Ling creation. Yet another great view here through an interior, transparent wall. Baker has a tough choice to make.

Lower floor of Orange House, with TV that needs some minor repairs. The orange part of the wall in front of Baker here is phantom, and the only way to enter the building from the ground. Lemon House and Lime House have similar yellow and green phantom entrances respectively. They’re not as finished inside as Orange House, though.

Baker then takes a walk to the downtown of Pietmond to look around. He heads through the only door available, opposite the back of the cathedral.

The interesting upstairs of the 2 story “downtown.” Don’t know what I’ll do with this space yet. Gallery?

More on Pietmond soon enough!


A Town Sent, 01

In the last 2 days I’ve transformed my Otaki Gorge land into a small town of sorts. Natural name to assume: Pietmond. And so it was.

View of the center part of the town from Gallery 9, which, technically, is also part of the town, as is neighboring House Greenup. The 2 sub-galleries of the Edwardston Station Gallery are still there.

There are no roads within Pietmond, only sidewalks like this, which I might term “ways”. I’ll probably individually name them as well. This one Baker trots down here, for example, might be called Long Way because it is quite long,

I love some of the psychological spaces of the town, like this view north along another way that crosses “Long Way”. Name?

New structure I’m playing around with, another Moard Ling creation like the centerpiece structure of the Edwardston Station Gallery in Orions Vale. Tentatively calling it The Castle in The Rocks, although it’s technically a gazebo according to the object description. Looks more like a castle to me, especially sitting up there on that perch. This is where the 4 prim cabin use to be, which has now been moved to the lot next door. I like the “castle” up there better.

View up to the castle on another way in the town. As I’m counting in my head now, there would be 5 individual ways within Pietmond, all almost straight as an arrow, and then an additional, curvy cobblestone walkway leading from the end of Long Way to House Greenup. 2 of my Fatima Ur concocted Victorian houses are to the left in the photo below, with the central cathedral of the town to the right.

Baker sits on the upper porch of what might be his personal residence on the property — one of two possibilities. Great view up Long Way and across the town from here.

Mouseview while sitting in same chair. That’s Gallery 9 dead ahead. Nice.

Baker turns toward The Castle in The Rocks now, still in Mouseview.
