Join us today, Monday 4th October 2021 at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey back into the past for a show first shown in December 2016, when we visited the fascinating state of ROMA – and get a taste of Roman life!

With the help of Melanippe of Themiscyra and Gaius Tiberius Curio (added, behind the scenes by Maali Beck), we explore this three region combination of roleplaying, education, residential accommodation and fabulous events – including chariot racing in the Hippodrome. Elrik gets to try that for himself, while Saffia joins the aristocrats to cheer him on!

Starting at the entry point of the Customs House, we explore how people are introduced to this world with the add of specially created characters, and find out about a game that helps people to begin exploring ROMA. From there we pass on to the market, and take a hair-raising ride across the estate to the port where we learn about the navy, the army, and various educational exhibitions, including a fascinating reconstruction of a house at different periods of its existence, for part of ROMA was created by the University of Durham as part of the online component of a real life archaeological dig in Northern England.

Designing Worlds returns for its Autumn/Fall season with a great all-new show as we visit the beautiful and fascinating world of Centauria, home of the Ancient Order of Centaurs.

In this episode, we visit the lands of Centauria and learn about the Ancient Order of Centaurs, in company with the owner and creator of Centauria, and of the much-loved Jinx Centaurs: Julala Demina, and her assistant Lil Cinnamon.

We visit the regions that comprise Centauria, see many of the focal points , while Julala and Lil discuss the activities and traditions of the centaur community. We explore the three Houses and their locations within Centauria: Cloudbirth – home of the farmers and healers, Glenstorm – home of the warriors, and the mysterious Roonwit – home of the Mages.

We also have the opportunity of seeing the fantastic range of Centaurs from Jinx, ranging from the very large to the very tiniest!

We also see one of the events that are regularly held in Centauria the special induction ceremony for new centaurs (affectionately known as the “Wednesday Wiggle”), and learn of many more events and roleplay opportunities.
