Some of you are familiar with the Murkland Challenge created by @Brennachan
She has also posted some pictures intended to inspire various creations in the form of Sim households, lots or stories.
This thread is to share my #Murkspiration (Inspired by Murkland)

The Door: A Short Story
Inspired by The Old Peeling Door #Murkspiration3 by @Brennachan
The frail woman sat huddled by her campfire trying to warm her old bones. Her skin was brown and wrinkled from the sun. Her lips chapped and dry from the arrid heat. She was not quite an Elder yet but she sure felt older than her years. Life was hard here and few survived the intense heat of the day and the chill of the night. If only she had some clean water to cool her lips and wash away some of the stench. While out gathering food and some kindling for the fire she came across the ruins of an old building. There was not much left of the structure. Just a few walls overgrown by wild plants and a door. The door did not seem to go anywhere. It was just ... there mounted to the remains of a wall. She reached for the knob but was startled by a noise. It was getting dark ... strange things could happen in the dark. So she quickly gathered a few sticks of kindling and some berries she knew were safe and quickly returned home. For several days she would think about the door and where it might have lead. Was it the door to a home? Or to a tavern from long ago? It was just a door that lead nowhere. But why was it still standing when everything else was destroyed? - EQ

Keeper of the True: A short story by @EuphorialQueen
Inspired by The Old Peeling Door #Murkspiration3 by @Brennachan
All called her Mother as a sign of respect. The children called her Grandmama. Her tired eyes would light up and a slight smile formed on her parched dry lips when the children came to see her. On the Night of Stories each clan would gather small gifts for Mother. Scraps of cloth, old lanterns or morsels of food all presented with great respect. As the families settled in a hush fell over the place. "What truth you be liking to hear?" One of the smaller children spoke in barely a whisper "Tell us about the before days ... when the world was different" ... his sister poked him gently and he sheepishly added... "Please."
"Well children I be telling you the true and naught but the true." She raised her eyes to the dark night sky and began her tale. "In the before the night could be dark like now but some places it be bright like the day." She shuffled a bit to get more comfortable in her seat. One of her visitors adjusted a small pillow behind her back. She smiled and nodded a thank you to the young woman. "The waters were clear and blue and smelled so sweet." A child gasped and someone in the back let lose a small sigh. I tell you the true and naught but the true." Pausing for a moment she took a breath and continued. "There were forests and trees and animals." A small voice asked "What kind of animals? You mean like beasty ones?" Mother replied "The real real not the pretending kind" she continued "those what walk the earth in the night and the day. Those what fly high in the sky and those what are in the hidden spaces." The crackling fire and a few restless children were the only sounds while Mother paused a took a small sip of water from her flask to ease her dry throat. "Then the people of that time did things ... bad things that hurt the earth and with no place to live the animals became lesser and lesser." A tear rolled down her face as she continued "People were bad to each other and the true and naught but the true. After a time there be no enough water and no enough good land to grow the things to live. And the animals all were but gone naught to be but on the rare."
"Those be the bad times but now we be headed to the good. All be not the happy times but we has each other. We be all our Sisters and Brothers and must work again to be one family. And that be the truest of the true and naught but the true true" -EQ

Murkspiration 4: The Sand Muse
Some who have traveled the post-apocalyptic desolation of Murkland have reported visions of sand muses amongst the wind-swept dunes. Do these creatures who inspire the survivors actually exist or are they simply the hallucinations of traumatized minds? Are they supernatural beings or mutants who have adapted to life in the deep desert? What kind of person would see such a being so far out in the wasteland? And, what would those who glanced at them be inspired to create? What would a sand muse look like? Where and how would it live? Who would it like to inspire and who would it leave lonely on the sandy plains? Would sand muses always inspire creativity or might they also inspire fear?
Remember you can create anything for the murkspiration -- a build, a story, a household, custom content or a video. It is up to you!

Oasis & Mirage both in their 'natural' state and in disguise.




The desert can be a harsh and unforgiving place but also a place of beauty. Oasis Offers peace and tranquility. Mirage Spreads mischief and mayhem. They are welcomed by some and feared by others. Can harmony and balance be achieved while they are around? Sims living in the wastelands of #Murkland are about to find out.
