Ah, that elusive +1 recommending a dimension to the public. It seems that the more votes a dimension has, the more it receives while equally excellent dimensions lower in the field struggle to be noticed. This regular series looks at the best on offer. I’ve picked the recommended dimensions for their style, innovation or entertainment value; they all have that elusive quality that made me go wow! This post, I recommend the best of the new dimension, Moonshade Pools, in North America.
All these dimensions are worthy of more votes than they currently have, so if you can vote while visiting, give their owners a little ego boo with a +1. Happy dimensioning!
Clue by Zafft@Wolfsbane
Did Colonel Mustard murder Miss Scarlet with the wrench? Zafft has built the boardgame, in their Moonshade Pools dimension. A faithful reproduction of the board, the manor can be entered and viewed from above. The rooms are beautifully decorated to denote their function (love the grand piano!) and all the weapons are there to be found. It’s up to you to solve the mystery. Bring your own murder.
The Enchanted Pools by Kissmyaxxe@Wolfsbane
Need to while away a few minutes between experts? Kissmyaxxe has built an lovely dimension filled with colour. The use of the glowing mushrooms and life leaf platforms do lend an air of enchantment to the pools and the two included houses are deftly decorated. There is a lot to see and appreciate in The Enchanted Pools.
Three Sisters Water Temple (WIP) by Fancyfeast@Faeblight
The Three Sisters Water Temple is a work in progress but it is still impressive enough, even half finished, to be worth a look. Linketh of Faeblight is the builder, the arched windows are typically his. This is one dimension I’ll be eagerly waiting for completion.
Caerbhail Apothecary (Annie) by Anneleigh@Faeblight
This dimension is the home of Anneleigh Caerbhail, apothecary, miller and ascended. Before visiting this dimension, read Anneleigh’s story.
House of Spinach by Spinach@Faeblight
The first view of House of Spinach hits the viewer head on. From both the outside and within, the architecture is open and colourful with brevane pillars and abundant light flooding this house on the hill. It’s a joy to wander around, be it night or day. I don’t need to say much for the pictures speak for themselves. Make sure you stop by on your Moonshade tour.
Daallinnii’s Commission by Egregoria@Faeblight
This may be a work in progress but I see enough to know this is a worthy addition to the Moonshade Collection. The builder surprised me with their use of items and colour. It’s bold, it’s different and it makes a statement. High on my list of unusual finds.
Ancient Splendors by Barada@Greybriar
It’s nice to come across a dimension that tells a different tale than one of a dwelling place. Ancient Splendors is an archeological site. Greek temples and clay soldiers sit comfortably waiting to be studied and shipped to museums and universities.
Moonshade Sonata by Caelthas@Greybriar
Moonshade Sonata is a rambling house complete with it’s own music conservatory. Connoisseurs of fine living will appreciate both the utility and style of Moonshade Sonata.
Shangri-La by Embera@Deepwood
Whimsical, humourous, fun. These are the three adjectives that cross my mind when thinking of this dimension. Embri is shaping up to be one of our finest dimensioneers and Shangri-la is all the proof we need of this. There is a quest involved with this dimension, to find poor, mislead Dead Fred. His mother is very worried about him. You’ll know Fred by his brown, leather hat.
Our last two dimensions need no introduction, but I include them here for the one or two people who have yet to discover ~Sweetbrier~ and Ville Della Piscene Luna.
As always with Kitasia, sweet is the best description of this moonshade dimension. Bright colours, innovative furniture and the cosy cottage feel go hand in hand with Kitasia. ~Sweetbrier~ is focused on children, with toys, a sandpit and a tree fort included.
Ville Della Piscene Luna – Eponirith@Deepwood
Kumberlin has recreated a roman villa for her moonshade dimension. Inspired by her own travels to the Mediterranean, the villa is a faithful reproduction right down to the grape vines. As always, Kumberlin has used items in unexpected ways and a tour of her dimensions is always good for inspiration.
P.S. While touring, stop by these newly opened dimensions:-
