This October, Designing Worlds is planning a special season of Halloween episodes – with two new shows for the end of the month! We’re going to start with an October 2014 show, when we visited one of the moodiest and most sinister regions on the grid — the town of Innsmouth.
Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 10th October for Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams in Second Life, or watch here on the web.
Innsmouth is a fascinating region – based on the horror stories of HP Lovecraft (whom many call the most influential horror writer of the 20th century), it has plenty of mysterious and hidden places to explore – all in the tradition of Lovecraft’s mysterious New England coastal towns. It was also, of course, an important location in Season 1 of The Blackened Mirror (as we shall learn).
But in 2014, Innsmouth was in danger of being lost. A campaign began to save this wonderful region by its supporters, led by Arik Metzger, who – together with Terra Volitant – joined us on the show.
The campaign was successful – and you can still visit Innsmouth in Second Life today at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Innsmouth/150/142/47. Why not pop in – and see what has changed?
This is one of the very few shows not to feature Saffia, whose typist was suffering from a badly sprained knee. So you will see Elrik and Aisling Sinclair exploring the spooky town!
