I find this very interesting. If I'm not mistaken, the Teen Grid is sort of a parallel world to the Main Grid. The layout and landscapes of the TG mirror those on the MG. But the region names are different. I have been able to deduce in the past that the Teen's Tolkien region is what we know as Rodeo on the Main. Thatch's build is, "a rambling set of timber-framed buildings set into the side of a hill, and surrounded by a heavily forested area." The Teen's Tolkien region and the Main's Rodeo region seem to have both developed into a heavily forested area.

Dolus Naumova

You're exactly right, Salazar. I'm good friends with Aesop, and a group of us own several thousdand meters of land in Tolkien. I saw images of Rodeo on Snapzilla and was absolutely in love. Aesop allowed me to do a lot of the landscaping and planting on Dun Grey Dawning, so I forested it like Rodeo.

Also, the trees help block out the god-awful mall behind the hill. GOD-AWFUL.

Thanks for the info, Dolus. I'd love to know more about what you folks are doing and about Dun Grey Dawning. My family and I are responsible for the Forest of Kahruvel in the Rodeo region. Check out what we are up to at (http://homepage.mac.com/salazarjack/default.html). It's so cool to see these bits and pieces about a similar world that exists alongside the one I'm in, and mysterious since there is no direct communication between the two.

Aesop Thatch

Wow, Dolus, if you'd told me that I wouldn't have been as set against some of the changes you wanted to make. BTW, when do I get my waterfall? ^^

Salazar- Yes, one of the reasons I wanted to live in Tolkien was because I've had the opportunity to view your builds with my sister, an MG resident.
