To Blackmount Again, 02 October 28, 2010

Filed under: Blackmount Sink — baker Blinker @ 5:18 am

In attempting to break into the trailer, a baffled Baker gets caught not in the window, but *inside* it.

But, silly him, the front door is standing wide open anyway, as he manages to pry himself loose and head around the corner. Once safely inside, he encounters this queer table with an illogically long notch in it and a chocolate muffin on top. And that’s about all.

Baker sitting on Peter Frampton’s porch again, waiting for the pond to disappear once more.

Just up the hill from the trailer may be the most mysterious part of Blackmount as Baker has identified it, if it isn’t the trailer itself (come to think of it now). Oh, besides the Blackmount Rabbit Hole, of course, which is *super* mysterious still.

But first, a joy ride in a passing, futuristic one seat vehicle of some sort, which deposits him at a local shop selling, by an incredible coincidence, hehe, this very same vehicle. But he must head back to the sink and tonight’s business.

Yes, here it is at last: The Anglo-Saxon *Rabbit Hole*. And just below the *actual* Rabbit Hole of Blackmount, only a mere 100 meters away to the southwest and on land owned by the same group. I have had the pleasure to speak with one of the owners of this land via comments on my blog here, and now understand that the Rabbit Hole, the actual one up the hill from here, was created through a bug long since erased, allowing one to terraform *way* beyond the now normal +4/-4 meters. For, as I’ll remind you, the Rabbit Hole is a good *90* meters deep, with actual Linden water encountered at the 70 meter level as you head down.

I didn’t take a picture of it, but Baker especially wanted to make sure the Peterboroug Cronicle’s front page was still inside the Anglo-Saxon Rabbit Hole — it was, and the first of four pages along the south side of the defined ground.
Baker now thinks this is the heart of the mystery of the sim, along with the Rabbit Hole itself or in conjunction with it — and also the Peter owned trailer just below. I’ll get to more of that soon enough.

Here is something Baker doesn’t remember about this particular Rabbit Hole: a Torchwood plaque…

… and then a book as well. A little research comes up with an associated science fiction TV show, apparently a spin-off of the famous Dr. Who British series, and acquiring a sort of similar cult following in and of itself.

The series is more or less centered by a rift located in Cardiff, Wales, specially in Cardiff Bay just south of the downtown area. Is it chance my RL wife just stayed in a motel across from Cardiff (in Clevedon, England), and was able to see the city from her high, rocky perch there? Perhaps not.

Baker is also interested to see a Wales flag flying nearby, but not owned by the same group. Does this, too, indicate some deeper mysteries about Blackmount?
