Join us today, Monday 27th October at 2pm SLT Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for our Halloween special – a trip to one of the moodiest and most sinister regions on the grid — the town of Innsmouth. And Europeans – remember that now the clocks have gone back, that’s an hour earlier than usual!

Innsmouth is a fascinating region – based on the horror stories of HP Lovecraft (whom many call the most influential horror writer of the 20th century), it has plenty of mysterious and hidden places to explore – all in the tradition of Lovecraft’s mysterious New England coastal towns. It was also, of course, an important location in Season 1 of The Blackened Mirror (as we shall learn).

But more recently, Innsmouth has been in danger of being lost. A campaign has begin to save this wonderful region by its supporters, led by Arik Metzger., who – together with Terra Volitant – joins us on the show.

Find out more about this campaign, the stories of HP Lovecraft and Innsmouth itself in tonight’s Halloween special show – don’t miss it!

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we explore the fascinating and diverse mainland community of East River – is now on the web.

The East River community is located on the Sansara Continent, just to the North of the Sea of Fables, and it’s a remarkable place – and a remarkable achievement too.

Because what makes this community so fascinating is that it’s not part of an island estate, privately owned and managed with a Covenant to make sure that there is consistency. This is a mainland community, created by residents coming together and protecting a tract of land that now covers nineteen sims, all brought together as the East River Community.

With the assistance of a longtime resident, Drewski Northman, we explore some of the residential and commercial areas, the art that forms an important part of the community, and aome of the amazing transportation systems that link the community.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – our very special 250th episode – is now on the web.

Set on the island of Matanzas (which we first visited in our THIRD episode way back in 2008), we talk to Ebbe Altberg (aka Ebbe Linden), the CEO of Linden Lab, about Second Life, and about plans for the future platform.

It’s a full and wide-ranging discussion, as we discuss the future of Second Life, problems that have arisen – especially failures of communication – and, of course, the new platform that is being developed by Linden Lab.

You can read a full transcript of the show, kindly compiled by Inara Prey, here. And after the show, Ebbe dropped into the Designing Worlds studio for a discussion and an open question and answer session – our thanks to him for coming in – the audience really appreciated it!
