Have you heard The Rumor?…

Don’t be scared…it’s quite calming..

The past few days The rumor has been setting up a sim, A sim meant to be for shopping turned in to a rich lust of gothic architecture and themes of a sea city.

Think of the sim as a love child of H.P Lovecraft and Tim Burton, eerie but calming. Haunted fairytale by the sea.

The stores that have scattered around in all the buildings range from older well known shops to brand new not necessarily known shops. I’ve learned and saw that they’re all awesome creators and the designs are made of win. There’s main stores, and satellite stores in the “town” part of the sim and in the mountains around the waterfall.

The Main stores include: The Rumor Blog HQ’s, Posh, Penned, Slutcookie, Tea, Bounce, Amperlope, Croire, Infinite, Butt-er, Rangs, Silenced,[socialANGtz], Nic0 Teen, Sblur, and Drama.

The Satellite stores are: Mustache, La Malvada Mujer, The Sea Hole, Adjunct, Smarmy, So Many Styles, Fable, Acid & Mala, Loulou & Co., Fumé, Boom, Babycakes, It’s Cake, Miseria, TuttiFrutti, Wunder, Razorblade Jacket, Posies, and FJ Design, Grixdale ( Tyranny).

I’ve spent almost two days here, soaking up the unsettling but reassuring feeling the sim gives off. It’s more than easy to go there to buy a few things and then ending up there for a few hours gazing at the build and layout. It’s hard to tell what you’ll find on your first trip to “The Rumor”. I spent most of last night watching the designers build up their stores and watch Penn (Owner of The rumor blog and sim, Pennelope Thiessam) create and build the rest of the buildings and lay down more shrubbery.

My favorite part of this sim is the mermaid fountain, the bubbling water moves back and forth giving off the effect of a real life fountain you’d toss coins in to. The fountain is located kind of in the middle of the “city of townsville” I’ve always had a love affair with mermaids seeming as my middle name came from a true feisty red head of the sea.

Take a few minutes or possibly a few hours out of the busy day and head over to The rumor
