Elysium Asylum

Hello again.

Finally, with all of your help, I have decided to call Israel's Manor/Mansion 'Elysium Asylum'. And no, not asylum as in the place to care for people with mental or physical impairments.

More of mental and physical...enhancements...

If you don't already know (i'm sure a lot of you do) an Asylum is 'a place for offering safety, shelter'. And the word 'Elysium', which is also Israel's last name, means...well, it means a lot of things. When i first found it, it said that the definition was 'Eternal', but now that i look over it, there are references all over the place to the Elysian Fields, a sort of Greek afterlife. Other than that, it said 'A place of ideal happiness'. Which is cool.

Also, it refers to 'A place that exists only in imagination; a place said to exist in fictional writings.'

It was quite freaky when i found that little piece of writing. I mean, come on, 'A place said to exist in fictional writings'? Seriously? I couldn't have asked for a better choice of words.

So, 'A place so ideally awesome that it could only exist in your imagination, and is a shelter that provides safety'.

Hell freakin' yeah.

I remember Kallista asking for some pics, so i did a quick search, and this is what i guess it would look like.

I think the pictures were taken at different times (the flowers). I thought of an idea though, that the flowers would change colour or type depending on the weather, the overall emotions of those inside the manor (if someone has died, there could be poppies outside, or something...im not too good with flower arrangements :P) or just general things. All because of magic, of course.

I don't have any pics ideas for the inside, but i'm thinking a big entrance hall with a balcony and stairs, lots of rooms for guests and long-timers, and a common room with a nice big fireplace and couches. A sparring room, for training and so on. Then there could be a ping pong table somewhere, gaming consoles, studies, whatever- i'm asking you all to be as imaginative as you can in your writing.
The grounds would be huge, with a medium sized fence around the edges, protected by various enchantments. A pool, deck chairs, trees, lush grass (kept preserved by magic).
Located in Dublin, i think. That place seems to be central enough. Also, if anyone gets bored, we can go for a small walk and visit Derek ;P

There would also be a sort of 'grand room' where Israel slept, although his attitude towards it is that he feels that he must sleep there, but he doesn't want to. He doesn't like being all that formal with things, so the only reason he;s living in the room is because of his deceased parents lived there, and he feels he owes it too them not to leave the room dusty and unwanted. Therefore most of his possessions are sort of pushed into the corner, as he feels no need to spread everything around the room. To be honest, The room gives him the creeps. Especially the big centered desk with the large leather seat behind it that his father used to sit and give him lectures in. On it, he has a small mug with various items, like two green shotgun shells (in case all other ammo has been stolen or wasted, a sort of last stand thing), a few pens, his USB, a thirteen year old cigar that he is saving for a later achievement, and a simple old-style silver lighter. He has a HP laptop sitting there too, and an engraved box which is full of old family photos.
He does not sleep in the big king-sized bed in the room, instead he sleeps on a smaller single bed near the wall, with a holster strapped to the leg of it for his double barrel shotgun.

For the other rooms, they aren;t small ones, nor do they not have luxuries. I suggest that each of your characters can have their own room, but if you would rather in your story, you can have rooms with bunk beds in them, so as to have maybe four people sleeping in the same room. Other than that, you could always sleep on one of the couches in the common room :P

So, that was about all i wanted to say.

You are ALL free to use this manor. I am giving it out to everyone, to use as a permanent place to stay, or as a guest, a retreat, or any other reason. If you're seeking asylum, help, friends, or just a place to crash, this is the place to go.

I hope to see this place in many stories.

Cya all later!
