Yes, it’s the time of year when Saffia and Elrik set out for an innocent visit to New Babbage and discover … what could possibly go wrong. Yes, it’s our Christmas Special – and it’s on the web for you to enjoy!

DW389 – Designing Worlds Christmas Special 2018 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

Miss Widdershins and Mr Merlin are visiting the steampunk city of New Babbage to learn all about the Urchins’ Christmas Ball, where Steam Santa will give presents to the Urchins, while the Boiler Elf adjudicates between those who have been good and bad.

Or at least, that is the plan …

But when Steam Santa disappears, Miss Widdershins and Mr Merlin find themselves caught up in a nefarious plot which they must resolve with the aid of Mr Mornington, the Assistant Maceholder of New Babbage, Miss Heinrichs, the Captain of the New Babbage Militia and, of course, the redoubtable (and hapless) Mr Biggins.

To say nothing of New Babbage’s leading forensic scientist, an expert in tracking and a crowd of urchins …

In this episode, brought to you from a special studio constructed for us by Eliza Weirwight of Patron, we take a look at some outstanding winter locations in Second Life.

DW388 – SL Winter Places 2018 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We talk to Eliza herself and look at some of her special seasonal products at the Patron store; we talk to Kess Viiperi about her winter landscaping vlogging (as she demonstrates how to create a wonderful wintry landscape of your own – you can see her decorating video in full here); and we meet up with Tymus Tenk of Calas Galadhon and take a detailed tour of their winter regions. You’ll be amazed at the changes since our last show there, when we visited for Halloween!

Our visit to the Second Life Cheerleading Squad on Cheertopia to learn about how they have created a powerful, generous and fun community is now available online!

DW387 – Second Life Cheerleaders from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

Our guide is Brandi Darkwatch, who is a Senior Co-Captain of the Cheerleaders, and she tells us about the amazing Cheerleading community, their training sessions and their work for charities including Cake Against Cancer and, above all, for Relay for Life.

We learn about not just the main Cheerleading Squad, but also their younger cohort, the Comets (for teenagers) and the adorable youngest group – the Spitfires, who we’ll see perform.
