I’ve been having a lot of fun lately (and a lot of irritation, to be honest) playing with creating a dimension in Rift. The base dimension, the Central Necropolis, is a large ruined house with sweeping staircases in a bare landscape with small temples/mausoleums and a tumbled graveyard.
My concept was to create the remains of a house owned by a lost time traveller and inventor. There are a lot of very steampunk elements available for dimensions, and I utilised as many of those as I could make or afford in the shop. I’ll keep adding to it as I can. Eventually I’ll add a lot of ground cover outside, so the area looks lush rather than bleak, and may even add a garden maze.
So, this is my house. Slowly falling into ruin as the books become mildewed and the machines shut down one by one. And somewhere, lost in time, is the inventor who created it all.
