    These are my submissions for unique design element.

    This is my very cozy and warm animated fireplace with mounted reindeer and polar bears.

    My entry for the Best Decorated Large House:



    The proprietor of the Don't Go Inn in the northern Vesper Bay area is a sensible man, if maybe a little odd. Patrick Bateman, 34, a native of Skara Brae, has always been the practical type. When he took over the business from his uncle four years ago, profits had been on the decline. Years of neglect to the property coupled with a long-lasting plague of ettins in the area had taken its toll on the inn. But young Patrick knew the real money maker of his establishment was the fine dining, not the rooms he so rarely rented out. So he remodeled the upstairs level to add a second dining area and set about changing the menu to cater more to the affluent Vesper nightlife. The most popular menu items all sound like traditional pub fare, but don't be mistaken - this ain't your momma's shepard's pie. Culling from the fare of the Vesper area farmers, only the finest locally sourced ingredients make it to the plates here. And the regulars would be the first to tell you not to miss the 'traveler's stew', a long-time favorite. Don't Go Inn is now regarded as one of the finest taverns in all of Sosaria, regularly feeding 40 to 50 hungry nomads nightly. Having experienced the fare for himself, the author of this article would like to urge you not to listen to the tongue-in-cheek name of this hidden gem, and DO go in.

    ....

    In other news, a ninth body was found by a local fishing crew washed up on the shores of the Vesper South beach this morning. City officials are calling this the worst crime spree in Vesper history. Local police have extended the 10 pm mandatory curfew for all citizens in the greater Vesper area for another week, or until the killer is brought to justice. More news at the top of the hour...

    Edit: It was not easy trying to pull this off in such a short amount of time, but I'm excited I got my entry placed! My friends and I came to this server 9 days ago and are having a blast! It's great to see this much participation in something I enjoy doing so much. Special thanks to Hydrox for helping me to make this happen. Without him my entry wouldn't look nearly as good as it does. And an extra thank you to Hiro as well... for moral support, errand running, and enthusiastic internet high fiving.

    Small House Contribution: 5D Headquarters.

    So, YOU want to become a thief, eh?!

    Well, everybody with roguish skills and a good attitude is welcome to our honorable society. Let me show you the way to our humble hideout.

    5DHQ.jpg

    But beware, before you can enter you will have to pass Bugs, our clan bunny. She can smell bad vibes and has a nasty bite. You better get used to carrying carrots with you, just in case. And don't get hit by some gold coins, the roof has a leakage lately. We simply haul too much loot. I have to tell the others to get their crap and store it in some vault. *Opens front door*

    First Floor - Living Room.jpg

    This is the assembly room. Enjoy your stay here, eat some (stolen) fruits or play a game of chess against your future comrades (I recommend asking Tuco), or take a peek into our deepest secrets in our rune library. Perhaps, one day, you may acquire Ninja Skills too.

    Now let's head upstairs and get a bit more serious.

    Second Floor - Training Facility2.jpg

    Before you are allowed to join our business club, you have to show your skills and dexterity. You can either steal from our training dummy with your sleek fingers, punch the fighting dummys weapon out of its hand like a master ruffian, unlock some chests (they are not trapped, promise) or my preferred test of skill: Change your clothes and set up a disguise. Just don't put too much rouge in your face, you want to look like a Trammy and not like a Tranny.

    Now, that you have demonstrated your worth (*looks at the bearded lady in front of him*), you are allowed to enter our sanctuary: the treasure roof!
    Roof - Treasure Collection.jpg

    Here we trash store our endless treasures that we acquire during our adventures. You will find many relics, snatched out of the hands of the most elite men and women on this world... *sigh* Well, to be honest, the best stuff everybody keeps for themselves, but you are certainly free to store your belonging on this roof and show the world what a smart thief you are. Just bring your gold coins to the bank, else I fear the roof might finally break and burry us all in gold and platin. (Memo to myself: plug the two holes on the front side. All that gold is melting in the braziers!)

    I hope you enjoyed your tour. Now, would you please touch this stone over there. Yes, that one with the many skulls on it. Go on, don't worry, it's just a symbolic gesture of your goodwill.

    See, that wasn't that hard. Welcome, brother! Remember, we have a saying here: Once in the family, always in the family. *evil grin*

    Now, get out, the world is yours to steal!

    Well, it's June 25th somewhere in the USA ! I know this submission is late, I had a lot of trouble patching together the various screenshots. Even if this doesn't count for the contest, I wanted to show off my somewhat finished keep!

    Here is the First Floor:
