There are many “traditional” Steampunk locations in the Steamlands (e.g. land or sea bound), and there have been a few which were freed from their terrestrial (or maritime) restraints (e.g. Laputa, or the Sky Caravan), but… none have ventured into space as the Clockwork Kingdom has!
The Clockwork Kingdom is a fantastic creation, floating in what can be best described as the aether – with a fantastic view of the sky, and floating asteroids avoiding its path. As a unique creation in the Steamlands, I was fortunate to catch up with Mr. Nightshade Sixpence, the very talented owner and builder of the Clockwork Kingdom, and imposed upon him for a few questions…
SPT: Could you tell a bit about your build’s inception and inspiration?
NS: The main concept is a classic wizard’s Tower. I took that idea and “steamed it up” into what exists now.
SPT: There are a good number of Steampunk sims in SL – what sets yours apart from teh rest?
NS: Metal. Unlike the other Steamland that focus on the 1800’s themed sims, I focused on a huge metal mechanism, instead of just another “1800’s London” looking sim.
SPT: What are the most noteable parts of your sim?
NS: I think its is the tower, as it seems that it is where most of the visitors arrive upon landing in the Kingdom.
SPT: Are there regular events, which people can go to enjoy your build?
NS: Not yet, but should anyone want to host an event or other activity, they are welcome to!
SPT: Is there anything else you would care to mention about your location?
NS: Please visit the shops! Lindens keep the cogs turning!
Well, Mr. Nightshade was quite busy, so I had to stop annoying him with my continual questions, but do take a moment to visit one of the newest and fascinating locations in Second Life! To pay a visit, please turn to…
