And, I’m afraid, there’ll be an awful lot of Saffia being killed in various gruesome ways!

Joey Aboma and Libby – LibertyBelle Lyric tell us all about their music-loving island community, and about the chain of events that led to them taking over the running of the island, and their creative idea to fund it!

We look in detail at how the community came together to create the Pirate Hunt – which is part scavenger hunt and part adventure game, and we have a lot of fun exploring the various tasks, the amazing builds and the stupendous level of detail! We also meet two of the creators who are supporting the Hunt – Athayus Quan and Tristin Quan Bracken of R&R Swag, Raven’s Blade, Allure, and 360 – who tell us how and why they became involved.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we’ll be learning all about the phenomenon of Second Life golf – is now on the web.

There are many sports in Second Life that residents can enjoy alone or with friends, and Second Life golf is one of them.  To play well requires a mixture of knowledge, skill … and perhaps a little luck as well.  There are a number of courses scattered around Second Life, some very realistic and some offering more unexpected hazards (volcanoes, panthers for example).  Saffia is a great fan – although Elrik had never played before this show. And so Saffia decided to show him why Second Life golf is such fun!

In the show we talk to CrowleyCorp, Designer of Crowley Corp Golf System (in other words, the clubs that we play with) and also owner of the Rolling Hills Golf Course who explains how the system works (and why it is so popular with golfers across Second Life). Then we visit LittleOneSusan Teardrop, Owner of Getting set at Angel Manor golf course, and she explains how she designs her course, incorporating elements of the the courses she has played – and ones she has loved.  Sinally, we meet up with Kaya Angel, Owner of Angel Manor Estate, which we visited on a recent show, and which has its own golf course.  Angel Manor’s six hole course is an excellent one for learning how to play golf (and for having a short game with friends) and Elrik finally gets a chance to try out what he has learned!
