Kasterborous in Second Life!
We’d like to take this opportunity to inform our regular visitors and fans of Doctor Who that use Second Life that Kasterborous has a presence within the virtual community!
Second Life is a virtual world full of communities, and it’s free to use (although there are premium options) and the Doctor Who Zone has a membership of 600+ and now it has a Kasterborous group!
It gets even better though! Within Second Life, Kasterborous.com now has an inworld presence – an office equipped with chairs, desks, PCs, an arcade machine, and very soon there will be some images from the website to stamp our personality on the virtual room. Members of the Kasterborous group will also receive notices when news items are published here on the main site – pretty exciting to anyone interested in Doctor Who and Second Life!
With a relaxed, tolerant and fun loving atmosphere, a virtual Gallifrey hanging over the sim’s New London village, a fallen police box wedged in the ice and a brand new Gallifrey environment for our nightclub – not to mention a virtual TARDIS (which I enjoyed a trip in last night!) – this is a great opportunity for anyone with dual interest in virtual worlds and Doctor Who to join the perfect community!
If you haven’t tried Second Life yet, the virtual world browser is a tiny 22 MB download and you can join up for free at secondlife.com. There’s no sword and sorcery in Second Life – it really is a virtual version of our own world which even has its own in-game economy! I’ve signed up already (my virtual name is Atomic Raymation) andÂ spent a few minutes there checking out the office, and it really is worth seeing!
