    Tosha Tyran inhereted Ivory City

    After a lot of pondering and thinking and of course doubts, if I would be able, I have decided to do, what I think Lumiere Noir would like me to do: Finish his great dream: Ivory City.  Ivory City was for Lumiere the logical continuation of the Ivory Tower, build by him years ago in SL and through which probably thousands of noobs have learned to handle prims and build.--Tosha Tyran
