The Colosseum

December 29, 2021

It’s always interesting to note the deeper reflections behind ones choices for builds here in the metaverse.  Sometimes real life has a way of creeping up on us and forcing us to take a step back from the things we enjoy most, so it’s more than understandable that when Ebeneezer first bought his Gratitude pack for $200 he had contradicting notions of opening it or flipping it due to some unavoidable real world concerns.  In the end he decided to open it and was surprised to score a 250×250 plot.  Right away he knew he had to do something big.

In all honesty, not a lot of thought needed to go into choosing what to build.  He knew he wanted to go as big as possible and hoped to someday turn it into a PVP area, so the idea of the Colosseum was a no brainer.  Of course having his brother

Welcome to the Colosseum in Gratitude (4700, 1600), an interesting take on a historical place born from a survival world of snow and ice.

The Colosseum, in all its greatness dwarfing everything else around
Spectacular in its scale when viewed from the porch of the NFG house
… and a backyard view of the wonder like no other
HILT82’s adjacent bathhouse
Looking like a nice place to take a breather from the outside land of snow and ice
Nice attention to detail on the interior of the bathhouse
Out of the bathhouse and up the stairs to a spectacular platform view
Wandering through the halls, plenty to check out in the outer Colosseum ring
Shout out to The Uplift founder
Items for grabs
… and tables and chairs to share some laughs

 

Random rooms full of random goods. Always good to be organized and prepared.
Admiring the scale and the scope
A wonder around the stands at night
Some residents upon the floor wait
Up close and personal… at a safe distance of course
A chance encounter with an unexpected guest
A look up high to the brisk open sky
A down the stairs to peek at what mysteries lie below
Everyone knows about the best place from which to watch the show
Imaging being the Emperor walking into the event and seeing the jam packed stands
Admiring the intricacies and view from the roof
One more look at the wonder of the stands below
And one last glance at the moon, the stars, and beauty of the pillars as the fore drop to the sky
Light on the pillars as we make out way out
Sun rising high towards a slightly clouded sky
Monuments of epic proportions tower into the sky
And on over to the village to meander about
Sun going down for some more great Colosseum views
A rising moon with some cloud cover beginning to roll in
Forecast of heavy snow with the sounds of mobs in the backdrop of the night
Back to shelter to wait this one out 
And finally, the sky begins to clear as the sun prepares to come out and the grounds become safe for another walk about.

Cinematic Walkthroughs

“Fifty-thousand Romans… watching every movement of your sword… willing you to make that killer blow. The silence before you strike and the noise afterwards. It rises. It rises up… like a storm. As if you were the thunder god himself.”

“Another wee look at the Colosseum showing the 1st stores behind the Emperors box, Daveq’s pop up stores outside in the Southwest corner next to Hilt82’s bathhouse, and NFG’s adjacent abodes outdoor Christmas tree.”

The Finale

Overall, very impressive survival Gratitude Build Contest entry by Ebeneezer and his crew that all should take the time to wander about and experience.  Just wandering about and admiring the scope and scale is a journey in itself, but imagining being part of the PVP aspect really does just blow the mind on a whole other level.  Regardless, it is one of those builds that truly has to be interactively experienced to really appreciate in all its epicness.

And as for you dear reader, should you happen to have a build either big or small, short or tall, or even just a story or experience in the world alone or with friends, please do reach out to Jimmy D on TelegramTwitter, or Discord, cause we would love to feature all of you and everything you are up as best we can here WhereWeHideAllTheAlpha.com.  In the meantime, thanks as always for dropping on in and catching up with all the amazing things that is coming out of this absolutely formidable community. Please do help us by sharing this out far and wide and subscribing to the socials of the builders above and ours below so that together we can show the world at large just how amazing this blockchain based metaversal venture continues to become.
