Antonia Bayle - South Qeynos - Storm Tower Isle - Dawnstriker

I was apprehensive about doing a project in the Storm Isle because of the reported known issues of lag and disappearing items, etc. Which, I experienced all known issues .  So, I decided to try to mitigate the known lag issues by keeping item count as minimal as possible. I limited the zone to a scant 466 items which is almost half of the default 800 item count.  However, despite the decorating challenges there is a story of this sad Widow's Storm Isle that just had to be told.....

Dawnstriker, the High Elf Warden, recently found herself a widow. Her beloved Petram the Swashbuckler was recently lost at sea.  In her mourning she built him a beautiful mausoleum and she often frequent's it and leaves roses.  She still lives in the Storm Isle; a shadow of her former self is constantly mourning her love lost.  In her mansion filled with all the amentities that any Noble Norrathian can enjoy she still is empty and sad.  How can her life go on without her beloved? In their home you will find a snapshot in time of what once was of their life and love...

It's on the Housing Leaderboards in Massive Homes as Widow's Storm Isle on AB. Thanks for looking and hope you can stop by for a tour.

Wow, some great stuff in there. Love the master bedroom with the columns and dividers. All of the rooms were really nicely resurfaced. The default bricks are pretty gloomy and it's prevented me from buying this house. It's nice to see something done with the space to make it more appealing.

Awww...Sad story, but a beautiful stage for it. The mosoluem was gorgeous and very well done. I love the color scheme in the mansion as well.

Very sad story and very well written. I enjoyed looking at your pics. You have resurfaced the tower in a very nice way. Looks great. Will have to take a tour in person when I have time.

This is beautiful work and the atmosphere was just perfect. I love the crypt and the wagon. Very nicely done and worth a visit.

I visited the island recently and must agree  you did a great job, the lag is not as bad as on others. Despite that, you did a wonderful job with the story and all details. Beautiful use of the Hedges and the interior is outstanding. The little carriage is adorable in it's simplicity.

Greetings Mu!

I went to visit this one recently and I like what you turned the tower into. It's actually a very well-designed interior (given the size and configuration of the tower it wasn't an easy task I bet). And the crypt is exactly what it should be. So big congrats!

I told you my thoughts when I visited, but it doesn't hurt to repeat them *grin*

You did a lovely job, and perfectly captured the desolate manor feel you were going for. Well done!

i went in to see that crypt to find out how you made triangle form roof.

that is very cool use of "stairs" tiles, now i see why it was need a lot of corner cover ups.

thank you for inspirations because i was trying to build "greek temple" for months.

Absolutely beautiful! I agree - my favorite creation was the carriage. It was one of those things that made me stop and think, "Now, how in the heck did they DO THAT?" SMILEY
