Mooncrest Vale – A tour/review on the Re-Opened sim.

Port Endings Village – Port Side

Welcome to Mooncrest Vale where I will be Roleplaying, blogging, chilling out for the majority of it’s time until something happens or it won’t. Mooncrest Vale is the Sim you’ve known someone was going to open but you had no idea when. This sim is dare I say ‘Old school’ and no I’m not talking SL old school Gor. I’m talking the magical moments of Secondlife old school role play sims, magical stories and a group of roleplayers who create stories not for the sake of leveling and being known in sim, but to just make a story. The good ones that until kind of recently closed due to something and scattered most of you to the wind.

In the Elderroot Forest

I saw the Mooncrest Vale advertisement in RoleplayFinder Group, and I on a whim after Reign of Fire had to close because too many people were leaving and going back to Realms of Fire and Ice Game of Thrones Sim, I was in need of something genuine and most sims I’ve been floating around on I’m not a big enough fan of to write home to my mother to tell her about it.

I’m glad I opened the all in one note card one of the admins sent out. I came to the sim, through here and found Nicca already standing there in the welcome center, the sim looked dead, but granted it was some time in the afternoon, when people often have school or work. I was there at a weird time. I thought about going down to the sim without a sim tag and just walking around. I probably didn’t because Nicca was there.

Second Section to the OOC Landing Zone area

But when I did in my usual skeptical way (because when your best friend in rl and sl is a sl creator and expects soo much from sims and points out all the flaws, you become a mini him when looking around sims.) I toured I toured this sim from top to bottom I think almost like I was looking for a flaw to turn me off, but what I found was something I haven’t been as excited for since Ehruhi was going to open. Let me take you on a almost flawless tour of the Roleplaying sim Mooncrest Vale.

First Section of the OOC Landing Zone

First lets review from the landmark I’ve provided you you will end up in the landing zone, it looks rudimentary from the top, but follow that arrow downstairs you’ll understand in the photo above there’s much more to meet the eye. The First Section (that you see just above this paragraph)  Mooncrest have all the contacts up here just in case you have a problem, or question etc. Downstairs if you’re new to the sim or rping in medi-fantasy/rp in general you are offered free Roleplaying outfits for males and females etc!

Here on the Second Floor you find all the information about the sim, the rules, the lore, the races etc. You find free outfits, the sim HUD, the Sim group joiner. And to your right up the stairs you can find a small gacha store!

The gacha store is supported by players and admins of the sim. Administer and Sim Decorator Sio is the organizer of this and maybe the representative of the mass amount of gacha’s. Still they are quite cheap prices and it brings anything in the store or donation literally turns into something new for the sim or goes to tier.

Going back out to the second section if you go down to the stairs on the left down the stairs not up them, we come to the sim TP’r and the rentals section. This is where the majority of the adventure starts for you and I both!

The first option on the TP’r is at the Castle Ruins, near the Elderroot Forest the elves, the underdark and the fae woods! I was still skeptical because this castle was the first thing I saw and I didn’t think about looking back, I was impressed on how gentle and over grown the castle was. From here I’ll provide you with some of the Sim lore about each place I introduce to you, these will be separated into individual blog posts all together. This post hosts part of the Elderoot Forest and the castle ruins.

   I cannot express enough that the pictures… though I took my time to capture the amazing build done by Niccia Straaf, cannot do as much as you coming to see this sim yourself. There’s more than just what I took pictures of.

The castle are old ruins from some distant elven past, very distant….

Though some unknown sorts have tried to at least keep it up somewhat, keeping the water flowing for the fountains since it is a source of water for creatures and people.

It used to be a castle overlooking the coast but it was destroyed by invaders long ago…
