My Reviews

NOVALE

Dabici and Kelso are extraordinary builders. Smooth scripts and a stunning landscape make this one of the most fun places to go in the hypergrid. Frequently updated to reflect the changing seasons, it also has lots of beautiful freebies and photo opportunities.

The Wizard

We had an amazing tour of the region with the creators, Karimo Hoisan and scripter Dale Innes. Everyone agreed, this is one of the most fun art installations they had ever been on. Unmissable! https://hgsafari.blogspot.com/2022/01/still-standing.html

Imaginaire-de-Ieko-18

Twenty of us visited this region yesterday on our HG Safari tour. Ieko's fantastic art is a must-see, and the region is beautiful. Props to Claudius Utopy the grid admin who made the region fast for us.
