I’m back home at the sky cinema, a nice quiet place to type up the last of today’s posts.
The final exploration was the Fantasy Faire 2023 region of Dingir, a really intricate and fascinating build with a very detailed backstory.
Sponsor: What’s Lost Spirits
Designer: What88 Zond
Dingir is a forgotten city in another existence. The backstory reads like it’s a place between worlds, of dreams and actuality. Some force or entities entered Dingir that should not have, leaving it as we see it now.
One of the first things I see looks like a gateway, between dream and waking worlds? It is off to the side. But it appears to be impassible. A sculpture (or is it?) of a sleeping face rests before the shimmering portal through which another world may be glimpsed, but only glimpsed.
The sky is clear, but dark with stars that seem dim and distant… weakened. The sky itself looks like it has been fractured.
A giant figure with an agonized face is bursting through the center of the city. Her hand claws at a statue. By accident, or intent? Is this the manifestation of the other world’s contamination of the dream?
Other, untouched, sculptures can be seen in crystal alcoves off the path.
At the pinacle of the path, a pair of Atlas like figures together hold up a fractured globe. Two vaguely disturbing thrones are positioned for somebody to look on.
Dingir is a shopping region, and their are plenty to choose from. The shops I encountered are:
- Artemis Corner
- Spider Productions
- Color Alchemists
- anc Ltd.
- Noble Creations
- What’s Lost Spirits (yep, some of the build’s elements can be found here)
- Secrets of Gaia
- Celestial Howler
- 3M MMMA
Tomorrow’s goals are more limited. If I can get through Szystrum Synod and write it up, I’ll be happy!
