Hi all

Being a long time fan of Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles I wanted to share some of my work with you. Unlike most creators I've decided not to concentrate on the main characters but rather the buildings and places have inspired me.

Therefore I present you with Blackwood Farm, the Plantation house from the novel of the same name by Anne Rice. It is here where the Master of Blackwood Farm turns to the Vampire Lestat to help him. In the second chapter of the novel he describes the house layout to Lestat therefore I've had some great help from Anne Rice's lovely detail.

Readers of the novel will find on the ground floor, the kitchen, dining room, drawing room and of course the chamber of Aunt Queen. Upstairs is the two room suite of Tarquin Blackwood plus the 4 other bedrooms mentioned, there is even the attic which plays a big part in Tarquins story.

Please note I've kept the house as close to the novel as possible, due to size limitation and my refusal to use custom content this is not perfect in every detail but as close as I could get. It is fully furnished, landscaped including a tiny piece of Sugar Devil swamp and the shed. Fully decorated and ready to move in.

Enjoy and please comment.

Hugs

Oh wow! That's a lot more interesting and complex than the simple one I designed for my Blackwood Farm family! I may have to move them to this house now. Did my house happen to inspire you to put this one up? If so, then thanks! ;-)

And now I need to go and reread the Mayfair witch books so I can redo my Mayfair Mansion better!

It's nice to find so many Anne Rice fans on MTS2!

Does having a life in the Sim world count as "getting a life?" ;-)

Hi

No actually I just finished reading the novel and thought 'ooh want a house like that for my sims' so I built one.

Wow, what a hilarious coincidence! Thanks again for putting that house up. Have you read Blood Canticle yet? It's a great crossover book that brings Anne Rice's vampires, witches and Taltos all together. Sad that she has given up her novel writing to cram for her final exams (ie: gone back to her religious roots) because I feel that there was at least one more story to tell about Lestat.

I'm planning on making a better Mayfair Mansion/house based on the real house Anne and Stan lived in on First street. I left so much out of this first one I put up.

Just started Blood Canticle. If you do the house let me know I'd love to have it in my game. I'm also doing the Theatre des vampires as a home business which I hope to put on MTS2 soon.

Thank you SO much! Lestat is my favorite character ever, and he is all my neighborhoods. This house will be in them now, too. Really a wonderful job.
