Pyramid of the Lost Horizon-Decorating tips


I have been so busy decorating houses you would not believe how many I am working on. When the new Dino bundle came out from game stop. I started working it this house asap. I have been wanting to create a Prehistoric/ Aztecian style house for a very long time. I thought I would show how far I am along with this house and explain my decorating style.

 As you can see I wont be doing much to the top level of the pyramid . I will add a few of the new cratfed Gold Azteca Columns as those I believe would look amazing in the corner spots of top view. I also added the Sun Dial from MMO that was given out. This house is so amazing with beautiful features.

On the sides of the pyramid are these large land areas that can become a vast forest, stomping grounds for all your dinosaurs  or even a Aztecian village! With some well placed crafted leaning palms and a few of the large willow trees from Celestia you can create a small forest easily. Add in some minor details like logs, plants and flowers and your forest comes alive. 

An Aztecian village can be easily created with gorilla huts from Zafaria and misc details items from Azteca you can create a well lived in village. Added food, weapons for safety and much needed fencing to keep out any unwanted wondering dinosaur sure does bring this small village to live. I even hid the mini tag and zeke games within the trees. ;) I thought this house would be amazing for those games.

On the other side of the pyramid you can find a smaller land area in which I created a flying dinosaur area. These dinosaurs come in the prehistoric bundle from Walmart. It also comes with this amazing tree house decoration. You can actually climb inside this tree house and receive gifts each day. Another smaller area I am still working on will be for those stegosaurus that comes in the Dino bundle from Game stop. I will save that for my finished house segment. I am adding  plant life to give them a very special home.

Last place I can show at this time is this grand entry. This entry has a sunken in area in which I place a crafted stone pond though You can use any type of item in this area. I love the actual throne base Kingsisle has made in this room . I crafted the feather throne, some fans, even a mannequin with the Dino bundle gear on it to be the king of this pyramid. On the top I place a statue and crafted 2 of those crafted Azteca blazers. This is where I have to end this segment and continue on decorating. Until next time. Happy house decorating .

Aztecasaurs diorama Winners!!!

First off I want to say every entry won! Wizards you really did amaze me with your creative skills. Here are your diorama winners Congratulations to everyone !! Just so everyone knows there were no random draw winners. All entries I received are posted. :)
All codes have been sent to winners.

Duncan Stormthief & Katherine Nightsong
I have to share how  this was put together.
Here is our azteca diorama contest entry. We would like to say something about the process of making this diorama :) 

All things are hand made, mostly of kitchen products. We made our natural, non-chemical, plasticine, with flour, food dyer (cocoa powder for brown color), lemon juice, and instant powder juice for nice smell :)
We used kitchen nylon for water and volcano, and then dyed it with watercolors. Tree is made from various plants. Nest is made of noodles for soup which is sprayed with water and cocoa powder.. On dinos we used sunflower and pumpkin seeds. Rocks are actually candies, and dirt is also cocoa powder.

Advanced Bunk House Decorating.

This segment will require Pirates to have access to Port Regal. There you will need to purchase Large pattern rug and the Ornate oval rug. You will also need the walls from Rapa Nui. This segment will teach players how to make items part of your wall or plush against the walls. In Bunk House Decorating Pt 2 I showed how to create different basic themed bunk houses so i wanted to take this one step further.

Take you oval rug and attach to the patterned rug, this will allow you to make items plush against the wall. I will be adding this shelf over my bank , the sink and the stove for my kitchen area. I am also going to use same technique to make a wall snug against the door frame to complete the look of another room.

Place item on top of oval rug the move patterned rug

Continue on with each item

Add walls to complete room

 For this next room I place the rugs in a different set up because I wanted a bigger item to be plush against wall, much like this sofa which did not fit on the end of oval rug. Same technique place and move patterned rug.

Once you have your main items you wanted against wall you can now add all the little details to complete your room look.This room has 27 of 50 items.  I could even go more detailed if I wanted too with; food, weapons or wall hangings. I hope you enjoyed this bunk house segment. Until next time,happy house decorating.

This is where your Pirate turns into a robot to defeat a giant stormzilla.  Just so you know I am not a great guide maker but lets hope this helps some. A few players showed me some guides and a video and from there it took me a few times of trying to complete this task  yet I finally did it. So Let me see if I can make this easier. Hope this helps Each image has a caption of what I did for each.

Go around counter clockwise and destroy all the eggs

Continue each to each egg until you are at top left there you can use a melee  attack to destroy the 2 eggs

Set 2 rows of fire using the eye beams power  
Make sure you are on Op side of the fires than stormzilla

Play Tag make the stormzilla run through the fires 

Continue making stormzilla run through fires until he just wont go in them anymore
Finish him off with powers the basic punch you can use from a distance.

Bunk House Decorating Pt 2

Very First Bunk House

My very first bunk house was while we were still in beta 'Shown above' since then I have been trying out different styles. The above image shows just a basic throw items in a bunk house and move them around to give that little bit of classy lived in feeling. Most of the furniture was bought at Flotsam added to the free items you receive when you first start the game.

 Kingsisle has come up with some awesome pieces of furniture for Pirate101. Here is a guide I created over at Pirate101 Central. I show you the venders, maps where to find them and the furniture pieces they have in stock at this time. There are also some very unique items in the crowned shop for crowns or in game gold. 

Today I will show a few bunk houses I have designed mostly will be themed for the worlds. Themes I went with are outdoor ,more of a Rapa Nui feel, a Mooshu themed, a port regal themed and last but not least a Pirate hideout. One thing to remember in any decorating are the details that complete your theme or finished look. Can you tell me which bunk house fits which theme? Until next time,happy house decorating.
