Whoa! I was only there a few hours and I led a slave revolt, seduced the Queen, formed an army to overthrow Rome and Persia, and had a rockin' BBQ using the Great Lighthouse! I can't recommend this sim enough, this is an amazing place.
This region is really a jewel in Opensim. Unluckily OSW beacon seems to be offline, so region status is shown as "unknown" although Alexandria is online.
Region is too large to see everything at 1st visit, so I will come back again...
Thanks to creator(s) of this region!
