Deseret is the third sim in the Adam ondi Ahman continent, and opened in May 2007. On 3 August 2007, estate owner Skyler Goode completed the outright sale of the full sim to Tascha Klees. It remains part of Adam ondi Ahman and serves as a gateway to the Demesne of Lyonesse, Tascha's four-sim subcontinent.
Prior to the transfer, Deseret had been dominated by large private estates, including four of the five largest private land holdings on the continent. Most landowners from that era have now relocated to other Demesne of Lyonesse sims. New developments include a very large Deseret Common, a river through the entire south of the sim, and an overall fantasy feel.
