First and Second Life at least.

First map of Boris in the town’s city hall off Golden Way.

What a view from there over top of Boris’ small arboretum toward the Pool of Gong (known mainly as just “Gong.”).

Continuing to trek Boris’ Golden Way, Baker then turns left at NORRIS, heading down the longest flight of stairs in the town toward TILE Towers, where the views of Gong are even better.

This structure represents yet another transfer from 7 Stones, Siliconicus. However, a big difference between Boris’ TILE Towers and 7 Stones’ TILE Towers is that the 4th or highest tower of the former had to be severely edited to fit property boundaries. I think it works pretty well in that spot still despite this.

Baker Bloch on one of the numerous resulting balconies. The “Baker Bloch in England” exhibit remains intact within the building. The lowest floor continues to be basically empty.

Finally, we take a look at NORRIS and also Boris the Spider, the town’s namesake.

First NORRIS… still incomplete within and in about the same state as it was in Pietmond, early November or so. But I have some more ideas now for this most central structure of Boris.

Then Boris, sort of similarly stuck like the red and blue robots at the center of town on the side of this Linden road wall. Surrounding it are the remaining 3 Celtic stones. The flowers in front of the spider are foxgloves (2 prim tube version) by Garden Mole, the LDPW worker who also created Boris the Spider himself according to the object descriptions.

Boris Town Limits sign perched atop the smallest of these 3 rocks, and a look back into the heart of the village.

A reborn Blue Feather Gallery?

If so, it’s these two buildings mashed together instead of these two (Blue Feather Gallery proper and Lemon House).

Just standing in the same spot, Baker Bloch turns around to encounter one of the nice views within the town, this courtesy of a Celtic stone carried over from 7 Stones, Siliconicus.

Baker in front of the same stone; just like the story in Siliconicus, there are 7 such Celtic stones in Boris.

This spot is shaping up to be a park or open area in the southwest corner of town, complete with a small pool to complement the 3 rocks towering above it.

SoSo East, with topping Goldie tagging along, has also been transferred from 7 Stones, with the Oblong collage series still within. To the left of SoSo East in this picture is situated “Gallery None”, also found in 7 Stones but never utilized there for any purpose besides architectural eye candy. Perhaps I can rectify that situation this go around. (Stegocat’s art returns within?)

Below Baker stares toward the smallest of the 7 Celtic stones in Boris, positioned beside the entrance to SoSo East.

The heart of the town is very similar to that found in 7 Stones, representing a more or less direct carryover of its central plaza with The Statue of 7 Stones and the little red and blue “stuck” robots around it.

Compare Baker’s shots below with very similar ones here, for example.

One big difference in the pictures above, however: House Greenup has been replaced by NORRIS (gallery/castle/sumtin) at the long end of Boris’ own version of Golden Way.
