Yeah, Vylixan- I didn't get that sense that there's a push for recruitment going on infiltrating every thread on the Gorums...I think it's just people going, "Oh, I like them- they're looking for r/p and people to play with and seem to be having trouble finding a place to play- I'll be happy to play with them." And then of course just telling them where they're currently playing so we can find them. I really don't think there's anything disingenuous about it, and honestly I really appreciated it when Elle said that- she was even nice enough to catch me in world and we've been plotting in IM's, which makes me happy.
Networking, I've found- is a very necessary skill to have in SL r/p when free time is often in short supply and it's getting harder and harder to simply drop into a sim and find quality r/p. Sometimes your best option is to say hi to someone OOC and see if they're up for some r/p, and most people I think would appreciate the invite. I know I do.
Speaking of which, Vylixan, Kait, and anyone else- hit me up if you guys want to play sometime. I'm usually pretty thrilled to meet and play with new people and open to just about any storyline ideas that remain somewhat plausible with the books. 's hard for people playing slaves to find good r/p, so I'll take it anywhere I can get it. LOL
And re. the OP- I'm working on compiling a "training manual", for anyone to use/refer back to- attempting to gather and organize as many relevant quotes from the books re. slave training as I can. Obviously this will be an ongoing project, but hopefully it'll maybe help encourage people to take on this sort of r/p.
