Opet was a vision, an evolution of the Golden Delta that started with my first store back in autumn of 2007 and evolved through almost 15 years of SL, skill, potential, but also friendship.
The Golden delta is a sensation, a set of scents, memories from my childhood, imagination and fantasies. It is a set of perceptions from media, from knowledge, from novels, from real life travel, from dreams.
As I set foot in Second Life and started to build, the Bed of the Pharaoh was what I wanted to call home, it was the first Temple of the Fallen Gods Incarnated. It was where all started and where it will eventually end, one day, the end that is always transformation. Because Beginnings and Ends are all part of one thing only, Life.
There would be no Opet without Garvie Garzo and Alial Allen, two of the most talented sculptors in Second Life who with their passion, crafts, skills, and joyful nature always helped me shape a vision, bringing their own idea and interpretation as I could never anticipate.
There would be no Opet without Polyhistor Serpente which has the ability to mold and transform Second Life lights and waters under her will into a magical atmosphere that caresses perfectly the sands, the stones, and darkness.
There would be no Opet without Lorin Tone, the master of second life sound design bringing distant flutes and music, the soft wind and breeze into your ears with such reality even the heat of the Sun cannot save you from goosebumps.
There would be no Opet without Saiyge Lotus, who just with a touch made the sands alive, and as the Golden Delta was windblown, so was Opet, spraying dust to her Junction, patiently supporting my vision for years with friendship and care.
There would be no Opet without Encaitaron Korobase, my trusted boatman who brings the traveling wandering ships to my regions every second year.
And ultimately there would be no Opet without You, all of you, that with your eyes, memories and experience make the Fairelands live. As I Am just a bringer of vision, but you are the bringer of Life.
