Ava Verino's Elanorium, is magnificent. Tranquil beauty awaits you, beckoning you to explore the seven remarkable regions here. Nestled in with Rik Sullivan's numerous roleplay regions, this awe-inspiring build will mesmerize you. An impressive view of the castle can be seen at the Elanorium Landing open air pavilion, through waterfalls and tree lined forests. The architecture and layout of the region here is just phenomenal. Above the terraced sandy banks, lies a dance gazebo with spectacular views of the castle, and the soft sound of the babbling brook below. Clinging vines and ferns grace the waterfalls which encircle the stone gazebo and bench, softly lit by candles. This region exudes romance, you definitely "feel" the moment here.
I wanted to know what inspired Ava, so I asked her to share her thoughts,
"I was building and creating content in Second Life for about 9 years before I was introduced to GCG. My objective wasn't a business or an income from it, more creating beauty that I could share with other players. Creating an environment for fantasy and roleplay was always my main interest, sometimes myself jumping into a skin of a fantasy character and getting carried away by creating a storyline. It is my way of relaxation and a creative outlet. I often see it like painting on a blank canvas, letting the imagination take the lead.
Unfortunately my limited time online doesn't always allow me to spend as much time here, as I would wish, many projects take a lot of time to finalize, this is why besides my own creations I love utilizing items I can buy here or on Kitely market, which often saves me a lot of time and I don't mind rewarding good builders for their work with a few coins.. My lands are still in process of shaping character and becoming what I want it to be.
I have found home here in GCG, thanks to Rik Sullivan, a good friend who was my great inspiration along with Special Magic, the owner of Land of Eire, both of them have guided me with a friendly support, before I could spread my wings. I love the endless opportunities of creating here and the great spirit of the community and I want to take a moment and thank Roddie who makes it all possible."
