Inspired by RL - The Casbah - Steelhead Port Harbor

Music, dance and general culture of the exotic East. What will the ships bring to Port Harbor?
Only time will tell...

Casbah in Steelhead Port Harbor

I was commissioned by Mrs. Peterman (Nabila Nadir) to create a moorish style build on a grandiose scale that encompasses the feel of the orient for The Casbah. She wanted to put on a historic styled oriental dances with historical information on the bellydancing displays of the orient and a few rentable rooms as well as a small dock for boats.

If you haven't gone to see one of her shows, it simply is a must. The hazy air thick with opium, the pillows scattered about brilliantly colored floors as the dancers put on an excellent show. The shows start at 9pm SLT after the town hall meeting.

Every view of the building is simply a treat for the eyes, working together with Mrs. Peterman we came up with various pictures that served as inspiration for The Casbah. The entire building was created by myself, the rich lush textures were created by Mrs. Peterman to create this unique standing building in Port Harbor.

It created for a beautiful showcase build in Steelhead City. Please visit the Casbah and look around, or come to one of its amazing dances.
