Join us today, Monday 15th November 2021 at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams as we journey way back into the past for an episode first shown in July 2016, when we visited the beautiful island of Rocca Sorrentina, an imagining of a late eighteenth century island in the Bay of Naples.

You can watch the episode on this blog, and you can also see it on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at https://vimeo.com/171900078 and you can join the special Watch Party at 2pm SLT in our studio on Garden of Dreams.

We are joined by two of the people behind Rocca Sorrentina (or Principal Magistrates as they are called) Aldo Stern and Sere Timeless. They take us on a journey of discovery as we learn about the rich culture that flourished in the Kingdom of Naples (much visited on the Grand Tour), and the history that lay behind it, reaching back to the lost cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Vesuvius.

And we also learn about the culture and exhibitions staged by Rocca Sorrentina, as Elrik explores a fascinating exhibition on the history of the Tarot … and we learn of upcoming exhibitions too.

Join us at 2pm SLT to learn more of this fascinating community by tuning in or by coming to the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams!

Premier Wrestling, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Designing Worlds explores the world of Premier Wrestling, part of the exciting sports communities in Second Life!

In this episode we visit the home of a very popular sport in Second Life – wrestling! – as we join the team at Premier Wrestling to see how it’s done. We check out the training sessions, the impressive arena, see some actual bouts and interview the movers and shakers at Premier: Vince Aftermath, Co-owner of Premier Wrestling; Trey Steele, Co-owner of Premier Wrestling; LG, Executive Director; Dany Thunder, Head Trainer; and Honey Potts, Wrestler, Trainer and Commentator.

Whether you are a wrestling fan or not, we believe that you’ll find this show a fascinating look at how communities come together and thrive in Second Life.

One of the key elements for the Premier Wrestlers is the stories for all the people involved. Each wrestler has a carefully constructed back story. They may be the heroes or heroines, they may be the villains. But whichever role they choose, they will have fans and followers who can follow their stories through the wrestling bouts, through the televised bouts on YouTube, and, frequently, through social media.

And they get paid too!
