[It is a tropical island. Your small ship brought you there onto their beautiful white sand beaches. They have a beautiful hotel where you can wait to talk to the Wizards, the island is covered in beautiful beaches, scuba diving, sunbathing men and women... What more could you ask for? If your answer is a unicorn, space shuttle, or anything to do with civilization, then you're probably in the wrong place. But if you want a condo on the sea shore, a small tropical jungle hut, or a place to spend hours doing nothing but sunbathing and talking to other sun lovers, then you have come to the right place. If you want to become a builder, talk to one of the Wizards and ask them to give you builder status. They will add your personal rooms to whatever area you would like to live near. Be sure to explore everywhere to make sure you'll be happy where you are. Please make sure that you follow the tropical island getaway theme and please don't put anything there that doesn't belong on a tropical island. Have fun and enjoy yourself!]
