    Default New Dim - Hattie's Shack

    Minxee started this dim inspired by Jim Stafford's song "Swamp Witch" on Faeblight last summer before the hurricanes and the introduction of the spooky eyes. As much as I wanted to use the new eyes in this build, the hurricanes put it on the back burner. As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short for my hoped for Halloween opening this year, but it is finally done! Whew!...Now if I can just finish some of the countless other dims in progress... ;-P

    Lyrics

    Black water Hattie lived back in the swamp
    Where the strange green reptiles crawl
    Snakes hang thick from the cypress trees
    Like sausage on a smokehouse wall
    Where the swamp is alive with a thousand eyes
    An' all of them watching you
    Stay off the track to Hattie's Shack in the back of the Black Bayou
    Way up the road from Hattie's Shack
    Lies a sleepy little Okeechobee town
    Talk of swamp witch Hattie lock you in when the sun go down
    Rumors of what she'd done, rumors of what she'd do
    Kept folks off the track of Hattie's shack
    In the back of the Black Bayou
    One day brought the rain and the rain stayed on
    And the swamp water overflowed
    Skeeters and the fever grabbed the town like a fist
    Doctor Jackson was the first to go
    Some say the plague was brought by Hattie
    There was talk of a hangin' too
    But the talk got shackled by the howls and the cackles
    From the bowels of the Black bayou
    Early one morn 'tween dark and dawn when shadows filled the sky
    There came an unseen caller on a town where hope run dry
    In the square there was found a big black round
    Vat full of gurgling brew
    Whispering sounds as the folk gathered round
    "It came from the Black Bayou"
    There ain't much pride when you're trapped inside
    A slowly sinkin' ship
    Scooped up the liquid deep and green
    And the whole town took a sip
    Fever went away and the very next day the skies again were blue
    Let's thank old Hattie for savin' our town
    We'll fetch her from the Black Bayou
    Party of ten of the town's best men headed for Hattie's Shack
    Said Swamp Witch magic was useful and good
    And they're gonna bring Hattie back
    Never found Hattie and they never found the shack
    Never made the trip back in
    There was a parchment note they found tacked to a stump
    Said don't come lookin' again.

    No, the link was just to share the song that inspired the dim. Sorry if it was misleading

    Thanks so much! It was kind of an exercise in lighting. I'm thrilled it shows.

    I must say you did a fabulous job on this dimension. I went in there and it was so dark so empty and abandoned, really gave the feeling something horrible must have happened. I kept on and found the cemetery so well done, and kept on till I came to red area with dim, then I opened up the music in youtube what gave it really a spooky feeling, and that voice made me goosebumps.
    I really felt I was in somewhere that something mysterious had happened. I think I found the shack of Hattie, and I burst in laughter when I saw the dwarf in the cage dancing so in tact with Swamp Witch and Jim Stafford. I am not finished yet, I think I will keep on, maybe I am lost in there, with Hattie sneaking somewhere behind a tree to attack me Eeeeeeekkkk.
    Awesome wonderful if I could give +10 I would <3
    I thought I fell thru ground to an underworld, I felt a grasp, I look around saw nothing.
    Love all mist, lights everything

    Default Found Hattie!

    Found myself with some free time and got to thinking, Hattie really should be there somewhere, so I went searching all my storage dims thinking maybe she was hiding in one of them. Turns out she's picking glowbulbs around the side of her shack ;)

    Awesome that you found Hatty ;)
    I did find everything and at some point, I fell in the swamp and I thought I got into the bug where you fall through the floor, but it wasn't it felt very surreal under the water. The music was haunting and creepy in the background and I felt like I got into a spider net and had to climb my way out but the more I tried the deeper I got.
    But finally, I found some ground under my feet and I managed to crawl out from the swamp, despite of those invisible arms and nails tagging and dragging me back I managed to get free
    The eyes gave a spooky surrounding, was looking back and to sides all time feeling I was followed by some unseen evil that just was waiting for the right moment to get my soul.
    Yeah, Hatty Hatty was in some peaceful moment when I met her, not quite that evil I thought, but was pleased to find her

    You deserve all and beyond as I repeat you did a fantastic work on it
