Join Designing Worlds jn our Northpoint studio at 2pm SLT today, Monday30th May as we pay a visit to the Isles of Jabberwock, and explore the phenomenon of sea-going pirates in Second Life!

We'll be looking at the world of the eighteenth century Caribbean, and exploring the region of Jabberwock which has pirate lairs, a Brisitish settlement and plenty of seas and desert islands to sail among - to say nothing of having battles and performing deeds of knavery or derring do, as the fancy takes you!

And, with any luck, we'll be able to see a battle in progress too.

We'll be talking to Antigua Jewell, the owner of Jabberwock and the associated sims about the pirate way of life, and we'll also be looking at the amazing ships that sail around its islands.

So, as the pirates apparently say, pull up a seat, sit aft, make aye your grog be t' hand, and prepare t' enjoy t' show, landlubbers!

The Designing Worlds show starts at 2pm SLT, but you should be in our Northpoint studios by 1.30pm at the very latest to make sure of getting a seat. And this week we are asking people coming to the studio to wear their best pirate gear as afterwards they can join us on the beautiful Isles of Jabberwock. And talking like a pirate while watching the show is encouraged too!
