Atlantic Home Spotlight!

September 13, 2014 By: Faeryl Category: Homes and Castles


First of all, I’d like to thank all of those who nominated a house for Atlantic’s first Home Spotlight! I got to explore a range of unique and wonderful homes and witness the results of the time and dedication their owners have put into every detail of their designs.

It was a difficult choice in the end, but the first Spotlight goes to There’s Snow Place Like Home, owned by Evianne! This lovely winter themed home is located at 105*34’N, 176*38’W on Dagger (Ice) Island in Trammel. The main floor features a kitchen, living area and a bathroom, a workshop is located on the second floor and the bedroom can be found on the third. It even has a closet! The fourth floor, accessible by teleporter, boasts a large and inviting hot tub for those cold, snowy nights.

Each room is decorated with layers upon layers of winter related items that will leave you exploring this festive yet cozy home for hours. Great job Evianne!


Until next time!

Spirit of the Season

December 04, 2011 By: petra Category: Homes and Castles

Discovered on his travels by John II SRC of Europa this village scene seems to really capture the spirit of the season.

Our intrepid reporter travelled to the spot, just off the west bridge from Umbra, to see for herself. She stopped to read the house sign:

After which she ventured inside to find Santa busy at his desk – no doubt compiling the lists of who’s naughty and who’s nice.

Which list are you on?

Is there a house capturing this spirit on your shard? Let us know and we’ll come with notebook and camera.
