But yes, they do exist. I dont know how successful they are with creating epic rape time, but well, yah, they are there, and gor specific.

I get an adrenaline rush from raiding. Now, I am not so sure I would get the same rush without myself being the raider because I have raided so much the past few months that maybe the thrill of being an innocent by-stander is gone.. but before when I was a free-woman in a BTB sim and never wielded a GM weapon in my life.. it was the thrill of the unknown.. the sounds of sword clashing.. and hiding.. and the possibility of capture.. I have been very lucky to have some amazing RPs after captures on Lil... both which were non-sexual btw.
Anyways... if you really dislike being disrupted in RP.. then I would try to find a meterless or meter-optional sims. I know some of the more popular sims are going this route. I personally would find just sitting around RPing all day without a possibility of a raid.. boring.. but I am an adrenaline junkie and a gamer. I grew up with 4 brothers who are gamers so it's in my blood... but I also love to RP when I am in the mood for it.
I think that the pew-pewers get from Gor on top of shooting game is sex? and slaves? Not many combat games have those. Also, some combat games are not group oriented and you get that here either by group chat or vent. Honestly.. I find raiding to be quite addictive and it does take some sort of skill. Anyways I don't really get the same adrenaline rush playing other shooter games. I am personally more fond of RPG games. As for it adds nothing.. I am not so sure.. sometimes captive RPs turn into storylines and that can be interesting. But now.. I rarely take caps because I am not really into it. I wouldn't say pew pew is RP killer because I am getting more RP now than I have in BTB sims.. just different kind of RP.
I really do not have a problem finding role play that is not interrupted by raiding or fighting. I am just interested what the attraction of all the raiding and fighting is for the people who play the game that way. And don't get me wrong - there is nothing wrong with the way you play - it is a preference, nothing more.
What does become more and more clear to me is that different groups simply play a different game. The heavy pew pew crew is there for the raiding, fighting, for the metered combat. They take some rp with it when it suits them and when they feel like it. The crowd who is there for the role play as their number 1 interest finds their enjoyment mainly in role playing. They take the metered combat here and there when it makes sense or to settle a fight that way. Just two very different approaches. When those two groups try to play together - there is bound to be conflict of one kind or another. I always believed that as long as people stick to sim rules - there should be no problems in playing together - but I believe now it might be a bit more difficult than that. Maybe sticking with the people who like the same playing style is the way to go.
Also - I have nothing against capture role play, rape role play, any kind of sexual role play. That is as gorean as it gets. I am with Tamar on that. I usually wish gor would be a bit dirtier and raunchier - and not so chaste and tame. I just think it is boring when it is repetitive and boring. You know....person gets captured, raping or sexing commences...person gets traded.....or escpaes.....then a few days later...same person gets captured again and all begins anew.
