The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a visit to the beautiful and creative region of Idle Rogue home of the famous Guerilla Burlesque, the After Dark Club and so much more – is now on the web!

We are shown around some of the many venues that are contained on Idle Rogue (and Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to capture photographs of more), as we explore the region with the owner and moving force behind the community, Cherryblonde Scribe, and with other active members of the community – Sho Kyong, POL Arida and Arrehn Oberlander.

Sho Kyong shows us the gradual evolution of a dance, taking inspiration from one of POL’s songs. We explore how the sets, the choreography and the music are all combined to create the final performance. And we see how the Metaharper tools are used – designed by Arrehn Oberlander, this scripting system not only enables choreography in the conventional way but also – as Saffia discovers – allows people to try out dances for themselves.

And all this takes place in a stunningly lovely region with a strong community that really is a joy to explore.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a celebration of the 10th Birthday of Radio Riel – is now on the web!

Designing Worlds has always had connections with Radio Riel, most notably, of course, through Elrik Merlin who is a leading member of the Radio Riel team. Gabrielle Riel, the founder, takes us through the history of Radio Riel, while we also talk to DJs Diamanda Gustafson. Otenth Paderborn and Edward Pearse.

It’s a chance to learn what goes into running a busy and popular radio station, with seven different broadcast channels. And we also be show photos from some of the Radio Riel events over the years.

As many of you know, the Designing Worlds studio has been based on Kayle Matzerath’s Garden of Dreams for a number of years now, and we have been very happy there. Now Kayle has redesigned the whole region, and built us a whole new studio!

It is – of course, because this is Kayle Matzerath – a wonderful new build. And not only that – Kilik Lekvoda has brought Titans, his lovely store of the cutest fantasy avatars, to a new home on Garden of Dreams.
