Lumilie’s Acorn Loft

This was my first house decoration ever. At the time I thought it was very creative and cool. It wasn’t until I posted it to the official EQ2 forums that I noticed that it wasn’t as good as I thought. Regardless it still has a special place in my heart.

You will probably notice that the place is kinda empty… Part of the reason is that at the time my carpenter was really low level so there wasn’t much I could craft myself. So I had to buy what I could. Being a newbie with little money to spend didn’t allow me to buy everything I wanted, like lots of plants. The other reason is that I had always been terrible with details. I got a little better over the years, after many attempts at decoration and trying to learn from the masters. I wouldn’t say I am good at that even after so long but at least it is not as bad anymore.

It also didn’t help that I blew my item count trying to cover the part under the platform (the wooden piece I used to build the loft). At the time we didn’t have many choices to build a loft. A lot of people, if I recall correctly, used just rugs or tables for it. But I wanted something that looked more like an actual floor so I chose those platforms and put rugs under it to serve as ceiling for the kitchen that was just under the loft. That ate a bunch of my item count too. Item count was never something that I became exactly good at managing either but then again I have yet to find a decorator that doesn’t curse it. 🙂

As for the owner of the house, Lumilie, she was deleted in one of my character roster restructuring. So this is the only house she ever had as well as one of the few records I still have of her existence.
