FisuUO:R After travelling through the deep and humid jungle surrounding Trinsic, we arrive to the tower. We leave behind the menace of the dreadly Silver Serpents and we step inside the Crafter's Home that stands on a clear corridor by the mountain. We first take a look to where the action takes places: the workshop in the 2nd story. Lightened by the warm torches we are soon surrounded by all type of crafts. Bulk orders come and go on swiftly in this tiny, yet productive space. This crafter is a man of simple fashion. He doesn't hoards any big fortune, he doesn't posses any big value, but he's happy with the simple things he managed to acquired, and shows them proudly. We continue our tour downstairs where we find another side of this man molded by the fire, the forges, the loom and the hammers. We discover a sensitive one, an artist, a man that isn't afraid of showing his fragility...a Rockstar! He will lay down for hours at that long stonesofa to rock his harps. He will sit down and write some hits while eating detox fruits and only the Purveyor of Darkness know what kind of fancy costumes that wardrobe hides. But not everything is hectic in this stone world. Customers, papparazzis, beggars, warriors, thieves... you need a brake from them all once in a while. So he worked on this safe space, a moment to connect with yourself and the universe. To gaze the stars hanging from the void above us, or spot the papparazzis hidding on the jungle. This craftman enjoys cooking for his friends and he also grows some grapes to make exquisit wines. He also leaves some unwashed dishes, but hey... And so the tour ends. Thanks for watching UO:R Cribs, now get biten by a Silver Serpent. OreHound Small House entry - Imperial Chapel Welcome, welcome. Be sure to leave your donation in the box by the door. What deity do we honor here? Let's just say that we love what we do and who we serve. Isn't that right Cupid? Make ready the offering. Blood is best. I shall beat and stoke the flames to raise the entity who may grant your deepest, darkest wish. The Master has heard your pleas. Ascend if you dare to the next stage. Ah, the altar of Lust. Let us make ourselves ready . . . Hit me baby one more time. Shall we make ourselves comfortable? Eat your heart out. You wish to continue? Are you positive you wish to find out where this path will take you? Well, if you must. Ungoverned passions inevitably poison and corrupt everything and everyone in the vicinity if warnings are disregarded. It turns what was pure into burning acid. Our symbol of this evil, an enormous bird of prey, ferociously mangles the latest victim. The bones of past fools serves as its bed. And it is always thirsty for more blood. The more heated and wild, the tastier. Judging from your performance, you will certainly be delicious. Thank you for making your offering to our chapel in advance, and for offering yourself as yet another warning to the unwary neophyte.

AO Ice Kingdom Shinies & Supplies Cove- First Level is for vendoring, I share the space with my lady so the theme is a mix of Blue/White/Pink, with a male and female vendor of such colors. One of my favorite attributes is that the house placement allowed pink flowers to show through the floor and they look good on the rug! On the front steps are a pair of Whispering Roses signature by Star and Crazy Horse, with some 7th anniversary bags as a marker of her first UOR Anniversary, often you can find pitchers of wine in these bags for free! ^Second Floor is designed for showcasing rares and if i continue gathering memories of players who left such as the "Long Live UOR! By Gideon Jura" book it can/will be a memorial to such players who give back to the community. Includes a Vial of Tears and Gideon Jura's Book, and a fire trap for those who attempt to gain access to my third and final level! (I didn't want to fill it with random rares so it looks cleaner and I can dedicate space to other such memorial items) ^Third and Final Level is designed for showcasing player run event trophies/statuettes, my personal achievement trophies/statuettes and I often sit a peacemaking character upon the roof to provide a melody of peace for passerby adventurers and customers. With such a close proximity with the Cove Moongate and The Drunken Stag event tavern I have been quite satisfied with my attempt to enliven the area with my decorative touch and look forward to continuing. In all this building is an accumulation of my Lady and my goals met and victories past, Thank You! -Crazy Horse & Star of [PvM] Snorko Best Decorated Small House Entry: Thieves Retreat Located just outside of town is a small cabin, a cozy retreat for a dirty rotten scoundrel.

As you enter, you are greeted by the crackling sounds of the resident fire elemental. A warm welcome for friends, a fiery welcome for enemies.... The Annex is my gateway to Sosaria via the rune library and my loot sorting house. I caught inspiration for the rune library from a tower a short ride to the NE, where @lawn elder is believed to reside. The Annex also provides accommodation for any travelling companions after a hard days adventuring. And the roof is the fire elemental's domain, littered with the bones of intruders, and elvish and pirate captives thrown from the tower next door.
