<p><span style="font-size: large; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">At last, Galldora has moved into her new home in The Loping Plains.  As you may remember, this is the home that was built by a crew of Gigglegibber construction workers, and in case any of you were considering hiring Gigglegibbers, you should know that they celebrate, and must recover from, a lot of holidays.  Galldora's home has been under construction for several months, as no Gigglegibber would ever be caught working on a holiday.  The Gigglegibber workers celebrated every Wednesday as a regular holiday, making every Tuesday a holiday eve and every Thursday a holiday recovery day.  Of course, they never work on Saturday or Sunday.  And then, there are the nonregular holidays that fall on Monday and Friday, and so you can see how weeks might pass with no significant progress.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">You'll be happy to know that the problem with the concrete that caused one unlucky halfling to become stuck for a time between the upstairs floor and the downstairs ceiling no longer seems to be a problem.  There have been no further incidents since the tile was laid.  As far as I can tell, the home is safe.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Galldora's home is open to visitors, so please come by and see it for yourself.  She is located on The Bazaar, at the Mistmoore Estate in South Qeynos.   Once you zone in, be sure to give the house time to load before entering, or you may become stuck.  If you do become impatient and get trapped in the architecture, remember you can always type "/house" to bring up the house menu and get out.  </span></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/92d9013b.jpg" />    Edited to say:  Deleted?  Sorry, I'll look into that...5/18</p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">In the shot posted above, notice how the glass of that large window on the first floor is molded around the rocks.  There is another shot later that shows this from the inside as well.  Have to admit, I've not seen glass and rock molded together like that in any real house, but if it could be done it's a pretty stunning effect.  It's so much more fun to build and decorate in a fantasy land, you know?  The possibilities are pretty much limitless since you have no worries about water leaking around the seal between the glass and rock. </span></strong></span><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/5db7f7d3.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>I love the many views this house affords from its vantage point, cantilevered out over the cliff.  I'm hoping one day we will have glass dividers similar to the glacial dividers used here for window glass, but more transparent so the view can be better appreciated.  Speaking of fantastic home features, it's not rock molded around boulders, but this screenshot shows a pretty amazing feature that I have actually seen in a real-world house, and that is the power-operated sliding glass wall that can be completely opened to bring the outdoors inside.  The panels are tucked away over there on the right. </strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/727fdd53.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Here is a full-on front view of the house.  This is an unusual perspective, as the shot was made from a teleporter placed in mid-air.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/f6e031bc.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">I really like the way the house looks at night.  It has a bright, cheery, open feel to it, like a shining beacon set against the eerie darkness of The Loping Plains.  All the trees you see here are permanently placed in the zone.  That tall skinny one up against the front of the house gave me a few fits early in the site selection and planning process, but ultimatelyI think it fit into the front yard pretty well.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/6dd96728.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Dawn is always welcome in The Loping Plains.  The natural rock landscaping, far right, forms an easily accessed platform where one can relax and take in the salt air along with the ocean view.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/a6639022.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Charasis platforms make very nice patio stones when flipped upside down as they are here.  These platforms have the wonderful feature that enables the user to set the particle effect to on or off while the item is in inventory.  I'd like to see that option added for many more items that feature particle effects. </span></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">I picked up that lovely statue on the broker the other day.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/da218123.jpg" /></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">I've received a couple of inquiries about this statue, which is called "Memories of Tserrina," so here is a closer look. </span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">According to Allakhazam, the statue is a reward for completing, "Finding the Dain," access quest for Tower of Frozen Shadows.</span></strong></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/18060622.jpg" width="1023" height="486" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>The house is huge, with tall doors, large rooms and high ceilings.  It could easily accommodate any of the larger races.  </strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>Galldora is not large but she cannot tolerate low ceilings and dark, cramped spaces.  In this house, the ceiling is so far over her head, it feels almost as high as the sky.   </strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/13075d31.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">This wide view of the ground floor shows how the entire back of the house is open when the motorized glass panels are stored away.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/EQ2%20Jan2011/c6f99010.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Rock and glass have fused to form a solid front wall for the home.   The house has been intentionally positioned so this wall encompasses some of the site's natural rocks, bringing them into the living area where they might have any number of uses.  Here, Galldora has paired them with pillows to make additional seating.  I also think those rocks are a nice visual reminder that the house has been built to be one with the cliff.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/988c3818.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>I've wanted to sink those lovely red papasan chairs into the floor for a long time, but never before did I have a house where there was a large enough crawl space to hide the bases, and I've not had much luck getting them to sink into solid ground without disappearing. One of the things I took into consideration when designing this house was building in space to sink various items into the walls and floors.  Thus the house sets up on a foundation and I made sure there was adequate space underneath, as well as between inside and outside walls, floor and ceiling, and roof and ceiling.</strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/6bdf4063.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">The basic design for Galldora's stove was borrowed from the lovely Falling Water house that I visited recently in Gorowyn.   The design has been altered somewhat in order to make the stove match the fridge, which of course is a "Gracey." </span></strong></span><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/16d728aa.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Close-up of stove added per request.  The stove is made from 13 items, 11 of which count against item count and two books for the light-up buttons.  There are four light frozen tiles, four ornate temple lights, one Paineel pedestal, one black marble tile and an ancient Rivervale scroll.  </span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/57225781.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Here is a close-up of the sink, and that's Galldora's parrot, Gizmo, who is just about to take a bath in the sink.  </span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/3a8b895b.jpg" width="1024" height="543" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Such a colorful table, and the new dishes introduced for Bristlebane Day tie it all together.  </span></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">I've covered the frost-rimed chairs with cushions, as I can't imagine it can be too comfortable to sit directly on such a chilly surface --</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">although, this is magic ice that apparently never melts, and so perhaps it doesn't follow any of the other rules for ice, either</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/5ddca577.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">The Legends of Norrath aquariums are beautiful, but their dark wood was inappropriate for the decor.  Here, I placed two aquariums end-to-end and disguised them with erudite bookcases and blue marble poles.  Now, I think, they fit perfectly with the rest of the house.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/9ca6c107.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>This deck, with its natural rock pool, is one of my favorite features of the house. The fence surrounding the deck is made from the small Paineel dividers, flipped upside down.</strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/5de326b2.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Do you see that swarm of bats in the air?  Galldora has noticed there are many bats near her home.  She sees them often, especially at dawn, like in this photo.</span></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>I wish it were possible to really swim in the pool,  but alas, the watery platform only looks like water, it is actually solid.  Even if it were real water, swimming seems to be disabled in this zone as Galldora can't even swim in the ocean, she just walks across the bottom and breathes the water as if it were air.  So, I'm afraid she will have to settle for walking on water. </strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">See that crow sitting on the rocks?  You've gotta watch out for him, he's got a wicked zombie disguise and he likes to scare people.  </span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/3d1c9836.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Here's an additional view of the house as seen from the deck.  Couldn't you have some great parties in this house?</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/47e1ff8e.jpg" width="1023" height="496" /><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Looking into the downstairs bath/shower room and the dining room from the stairs.  There's not much to see in that bathroom, it's pretty plain, just a sink, toilet and shower.  Let's head on upstairs.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/378a3819.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Speaking of the stairs, they are made of Paineel pedestals, with small Paineel dividers (sunk into the floor to hide the bottom half) making up the rail around the top.  I love the look of the Paineel pedestals for stairs, but caution is needed when deciding how to place them, as not all parts of the pedestals are entirely solid.  At one point I had them facing another way, and characters would sink into the front of the stairs when attempting to climb them.  When I noticed this, the stairs were all in place and surrounded by walls.  Luckily, using the layout editor I was able to turn them all around in one step, and with that turn my characters found solid footing.  </span></strong></span></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">(Why is Galldora going DOWN the stairs?  We're going UP!  Turn around.</span></strong></span><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/2786c5c8e1a8be796fb2f726cca5a0fe.gif" border="0" /> )</p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/cdb5eae7.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">The second floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom with tub, shower and sauna, as well as an art display area that wraps around the perimeter of the floor.  Large expanses of glass offer stunning views to the east and south.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/eb5ab729.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;"><strong>From this bedroom, you can just barely see into the bathroom, where a ladder leads to the sauna.  </strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/3b0083b4.jpg" width="1022" height="484" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">The home includes this gallery space, where large paintings and banners can be displayed.  The massive windows let in lots of natural light, while magical properties embedded in the glass keep harmful sun rays from damaging the art.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/de9dfb42.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Heading around the gallery space toward the front of the house, we find the master bedroom and sitting area.  </span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/1acb9027.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong><span style="font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">In the SE corner, Galldora keeps her only houseplant, the Wakening Blossom.  This plant is a reward for completing the quest, "Rubble Rooter," in the Eastern Wastes.</span></strong></span></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/3513c31f.jpg" /></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Around the corner we find the sleeping area.   I've always liked the glacial bed, and especially its beautiful blue bedspread, and this is the first room I've had where I really felt it fit. </span></strong></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/EQ2%20Jan2011/89a5faaf.jpg" /></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">The master bathroom features the new Coldain stone counters, as well as a toilet made from an ornate vase topped with a rich bowl of gruel.   </span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">The flusher is the handle from the lucky mug of ale.</span></strong></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/51321320.jpg" /></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">Finally, we come to the tub, shower and sauna.  The sauna gets its heat from the Thurgaden Mystic Magefire, the reward for the red shiny collection from Thurgaden. </span></strong></p><p><strong><span style="font-size: medium; font-family: comic sans ms,sans-serif;">I'd love to have a magical sauna in my RL home.  </span></strong></p><p><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e294/Draeknar/GALLDORA_HOUSE/2eff8f39.jpg" /></p><p><span style="font-size: large;

<p>OMG! I'm so glad you're finally done! It looks totally awesome. Great job. It reminds me of those cool contemporary houses from the 70's that James Bond would have lived in. Omw to visit it right now. Totally awesome though. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></p><p>*Edit* I just visited and it's totally amazing. Great job!!

<p>wow, that very modern design.</p><p>that was the right combinations with ice/glassy wall or dividers, tiles used.</p><p>it look more 'homey" with a mini gallery in the mix.</p><p>good job.</p>

<p>I don't like at all modern houses so I wouldn't want to live in that one, but you did an awesome job with that one. Gigglegibber are perhaps very bad on the "fast" point but thir work is very good!</p><p>The glass pannelling is awesome, garden is perfect, flower area near the entrance is perfect too. I really love the sitting room.Very good job on those thurgadin banners too.</p><p>Is the big tree in the garden (the one with red paper lanterns) a regular tree from the zone?</p>

<p>Wow, thanks for all the really nice comments!  <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/499fd50bc713bfcdf2ab5a23c00c2d62.gif" border="0" />  We don't have a blushing+smiling smiley, so just pretend I smushed those two smileys together. </p><p>I really logged some hours building this one.  It's the first house where I used the layout editor (and the Gigglegibbers!) extensively, and each portion was torn down and rebuilt at least once and some portions multiple times.  I also picked the entire house up and started over once, after I worked out most of the design basics.  It's been a long haul, but I'm pretty happy with it and I'm very happy with my improved ability to edit the layout files.  I really needed practice to get the hang of it.</p><p>I just swapped out most of the photos for lighter, brighter versions.  Last night I thought they looked OK, maybe because the room was dark.  Now, I hope I don't check back later and think they are too washed out....LOL!</p>

<p>The architecture of your home is beautiful! I love all of your detail throughout, right down to the flower beds around the house. The fish tank is beautiful! Is that 2 LoN aqauriums blown up an skin-coated with the marble? You made it look awesome! I also loved your pool! Very nice <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>I think I've finally finished this post now, having added commentary as well as a few additional photos.  Thanks for looking!  Your very positive response to the house makes the several months of planning and construction all worthwhile. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/499fd50bc713bfcdf2ab5a23c00c2d62.gif" border="0" /></p>
