Today’s Featured Dimensioneer interview is with Gothess of Hailol! In this interview series dimensioneers share a little about themselves, their various dimension builds, what they found challenging and more.
Please tell us three things about yourself:
Before entering the realm of mommy-hood, I was working in the medical field and working towards a masters in biomedical research. Now, I am really enjoying being at home with my little one and all my fur babies! Whenever I get the chance, I make arts and crafts items to sell at craft shows, art festivals and even renfaires.
Can you tell us a little about your character.
Gothess is my high elf hero. She can fearlessly sport some outfits that I wouldn’t even dare think about wearing in real life, even in the privacy of my own home. Not only does she look fabulous, she can beat up bad guys with her warrior skills and then relax in one of her many homes after a hard days work.
What are your favorite activities in RIFT?
Rift is so awesome. It’s a great social outlet and of course an amazing place to just be creative. One of the things I absolutely love to do in Rift is touring dims! The things that fellow Rifters create just leave me speechless at times.
Which dimension was your first build?
My first build is Howl’s Moving Castle. I opened it up during a contest years ago and closed it back up to make it perfect. It’s a work in progress, forever. lol!
How many dimension builds do you have as of today?
11 completed and a lot of unfinished ones.
Of the completed, 7 can be found on every NA server and are named **Bank Access**. These were made to help fellow rifters when they need access to crafting stations, banks, mailboxes, or practice dummies at the most inopportune times (like questing out in the middle of nowhere!).
Which of your dimensions is your favorite? Where did you find the inspiration to build it?
Gothic Summer is my favorite. It’s so green and peaceful with just a touch of Gothic. It was created for a contest and it turned out to be my favorite little hang out.
Which of your dimensions was the most challenging build and why?
**Bank Access** was tough. It’s one dim design spanning across 7 servers. Gathering all those materials on each shard was a challenge.
What is your favorite dimension item(s) and can you tell us why?
Blue butterflies. I just love blue and butterflies. Perfect match! ;D
If you were somehow magically stranded inside a dimension for a week, which dimension would you want to be in?
This is soooo tough to answer. I have quite a few. But I would have to say Civa@Faeblight’s, “Peaceful“. Civa is an alt of Cedrica and she is such an angel. I sent her a Silverwood music box and asked if she could put it in her peaceful dim and she did! Almost every night when I got home from my crappy job, I would log on, go in her dimension, eat my dinner (ramen), and unwind from a horrible day. It helped keep me sane!
What dimension changes or new items, etc would you most like to see added to RIFT in the future?
Unicorn npc’s would be magical (haha!). And I really hope to get some music boxes from Starfall, particularly Alittu. The music is amazing!
If you could have any place in the world of Telara as an available Dimension Key where would that be?
Silverwood’s Mirror of Ages is just beautiful. That’s my pick. 🙂
Do you have any tips or advice for other dimensioneers and/or new builders?
Just build what you love and what speaks to you. You never know whose soul you may touch with your creation. Rift dimensions are a place to get creative and to set that imagination free. I can’t wait to see what you make! ;D
Thank you Gothess for sharing your story with us, your dimensions are wonderful, I look forward to seeing what you will make next. 🙂
Gothess dimensions can be found on the Hailol North American shard under the names Gothess, Ravenfaire, and Meena, a list of her dimension are also located on her gallery page.
