The Great Wall
It's an Imposing Structure.
I was unable to contact the creator to ask for more information: Governor Linden did not appear in Search->People. I was able to pull her profile from the land ownership page - this reduced my concern (and the possible impact on SL politics) somewhat.
The Great Wall crosses 13 sims. (The wall is that grey line.)
Each entrance has a staircase that leads to the dimly lit interior. It is possible to walk the length of the wall along a seemingly endless corridor.
That's not the light at the end of the tunnel, it's the end of my draw distance.
Or to run along the top, where the scenery is a little better.
There appear to be caterpillars etched in relief on the outer walls. Could this mean something?
A word of caution if you are inclined to run at breakneck speed along the top of the wall: sim crossings (where everything goes a bit phantom) can be dramatic at that height.
The wall gives the impression of great age. Residents have built shops and homes against its imposing sides. Many of the blocks with which it was made are showing the tell-tale signs of prim drift. Portions of the roof seem to have caved in completely.
The auto-return might also be having issues.
The History Wiki was frustratingly devoid of any information about the purpose of the wall, although Magellan Linden's exhibition notes might prove fascinating. If anyone has more information concerning this historic build, or knows the whereabouts of the Governor, please contact Ida Keen, Amida, Second Life. Leave your comments after the beep.
