The threat of the Omega Hex is growing. 

While Harland Quinn may have set aside his misgivings about working with the Drow warrior, Lyndiss Dalael, that doesn’t mean he’s happy about it. To figure out exactly what they’re up against, he’ll need the help of people he’d trust with his life.

The first stop is the musty, arcane libraries of Lucentia, where an old friend of Quinn’s may be able to shed light on the mystery. But they’ll need additional help – of a very different sort – to take the next step. 

Will they find the help they need in the rough-and-tumble back streets of Port Babbage?

Designing Worlds Christmas Ball (2016), photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

As we promised, here is a link to the second Babbage Tale we showed at our Watch Party in New Babbage … but first here is a special event for Designing Worlds fans ..

The Ball will be held in our special Designing Worlds Ballroom, created by Kayle Matzerath and available in his Garden of Dreams store. The Ball runs from 1PM till 4PM on Friday 16th December.There will be great music from DJ Elrik Merlin and DaveOSaurus, and a special appearance by the fabulous Raglan Shire Carollers – so don’t miss it!

And here is the promised second Babbage Tale!

What could Possibly Go Wrong in Piermont Landing?

Of course, in the past there have been problems when we visited New Babbage. There was that unpleasant business in the tunnels under the old Asylum. And, of course, there was that murder at the Burlesque – two murders, actually. And we shouldn’t forget our encounter with the Dark Mer in the waters off New Babbage. Or what happened when Elrik was mistaken for Sherlock Holmes. And, of course, most recently, how we were fortunately on hand to prevent the attempt to steal the New Babbage Christmas presents … admittedly it was a little unfortunate that we allowed the urchins to steal them instead …

But this time we are sure that nothing could possibly go wrong!

We’ll be visiting Mrs Breezy Carver Fabre as she prepares for one of her fabulous Balls in the gorgeous Piermont Landing. We’ll be exploring this great build and hearing some of the stories that lie behind it.

And, if we’re very lucky, perhaps we’ll be so fortunate as to see the fabulous Carver diamonds too!

Featuring Miss Breezy Carver, Edward Pearse, Mr Biggins and a mysterious nun. Plus, of course, that factory chimney!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But this isn’t all!

On Sunday 18th December, we’re hosting the World Premiere of Episode 2 of Harland Quinn and the Omega Hax in the Designing Worlds studio. Watch this blog for more information!

And on Monday 19th December, we’ll have our final Designing Worlds show of the season, when we’ll be visiting a fabulous selection of winter places.

You won’t want to miss any of these!

Images of Buckingham Palace by Wildstar Beaumont

Designing Worlds marked the passing of Queen Elizabeth II with a very special show, part discussion of what this means to people, and part visiting some of the memorials that people created.

Our discussion was hosted by the royalty of Antiquity in their beautiful re-creation of Buckingham Palace, and we are joined by Kess Crystal, Mrs Sassypants, Liz Wilner, Jacon Cortes, Jorge Serapis and Mary Layton. We also visit the Portrait Gallery and Church created by Liz Wilner and Oriella Charik, and the special chapel created by Jorge Serapis. We also visit the event held in Antquity.

Now that official mourning has ended, memorials have largely disappeared – if some still remain, we’d love to hear about them! But you can still visit the magnificent re-creation of Buckingham Palace in Antiquity at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Antiquity%20Texas/154/176/2002.

There won’t be a Designing Worlds show this week. Instead you are invited to join us at SL19B, where Saffia will be hosting the first of the Meet the Lindens events at 2pm SLT at the SL19B Arboretum in one of the three audience regions –
SLB Wonderous: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Wonderous/236/2/25
SLB Fascinate: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Fascinate/4/243/25
SLB: Exhilarate: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Exhilarate/235/233/23

Today Saffia will be talking to Patch Linden, who has some exciting news to share. And there’ll be lots to say about Linden Homes too!

If you can’t join us live, then you’ll be able to catch the discussion at: https://youtu.be/g9UJjr7sZxk

Then, over the course of this week, at 2pm SLT every day in the Arboretum, Saffia will be talking to more Lindens – and the Moles.

On Tuesday, in a pre-recorded session, Saffia will be talking to Oberwolf Linden and Philip Linden, talking about strategy, the Metaverse – and much more!

On Wednesday, in a second pre-recorded interview, we meet the Marketing Team, cosisting of Second Life Marketing Team, consisting of Feuling Linden, Chief Marketing Officer, Brett Linden, Vice President of Marketing, Darcy Linden, Director of Marketing, Strawberry, Senior Social Media Manager, Maveric Lindeen, Senior Marketing Analyst, and Emika Linden, Senior Marketing Manager.

Although these two sessions have been pre-recorded (due to the difficulty of matching up schedules), there will be a chance to discuss the issues raised – and questions that can’t be answered can be forwarded from these sessions to the Lab.

On Thursday, Saffia will be talking live to Grimpity and Mojo Linden about technical issues, what they’s been doing over the last year and plans for the future.

And finally on Friday, we’ll have a chance to Meet the Moles, and learn about the vital work these residents working for the Lab are accomplishing.

All the talks will be livestreamed on YouTube, and available afterwards.

Thanks to Strawberry Linden for the livestreaming and the posters!

Today, Monday 4th April, Designing Worlds pays a second visit to the Second Life Home and Garden Expo, which, sadly, is now closed. The premium event for Home and Garden designers in Second Life (and breedables too!), Designing Worlds has long been a supporter – and a sponsor too.

From 2pm today you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds. Or you can join us for our Watch Party in the beautiful Designing Worlds studios in the Garden of Dreams!

In this show, we look at the very popular Decorating Contest, which Designing Worlds sponsored, where competitors had to decorate a home of their choice. We were joined by some of the designers (Liz Wilner, Aphra Hendrix, Mystic Blackbart and Melina Firehawk) who told us about their designs, and how they managed to great great homes with only 450 land impact!

Then with the aid of our terrific machinematographer Bain Finch,, we explore the sixteen homes (and after the showing – we’ll tell you who won!).

We also talk to designers Elizabeth Burleigh, whose store is the Blue Moon Atelier Gallery, and Ethy Ðrαgoste Fιяεнαωк-Knight, whose store is The Crystal Witch – and who is also one of the Expo Organisers about their experiences of the Expo.

And we take a visit to two favourite stores (Little Big Designs and Kaerri’s) before we head for the very special lantern ceremony that takes place each day at the Expo.

It makes for a fascinating show that you won’t want to miss, so come to the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams or tune in to watch on the web!
