Last night I logged in. Etienne was naked and apparently "covered in feces" outside my tent. I logged out and went back to bed.


He took a dumb in Ice's cabin, so Ice knocked him out and removed his pants to use to clean the cabin with lol
there's those thinking more or less less is more
but if less is more how you're keeping score?
Means for every point you make
your level drops
kinda like its starting from the top

Women: How much RP do you expect from your companion/owner?

Sadly percentages only tell you so much. 80% of an hour a week is far less than 20% daily. Question is what is a real minimum of time you would want from an RP partner on a weekly basis?

Not like men were asked to begin with, but I'd like to mention something that - to me - is as important as roleplaying with one another.

I expect my slave or companion to roleplay when I am NOT around. I expect her to be around enough for others to know her, to build relationships with her in the sim I chose to spend my time in and to get creatively involved in sim-wide and personal story lines as much as her time allows her to.

I am not interested in owning someone who only signs on when I do, who then expects 1on1. I am interested in a person who holds her own in a sim.

Now as that went a little OT: Timewise, I don't know. Hard to gauge. If we spend 50 % of our time online with one another in 1on1 scenes and the rest with others (whether together or not) I'm usually a happy camper.

Things start to burn me out when it's all 1on1 though. I am not one to cope too well with isolation in that regard, I need to feel like I am part of a living, breathing RP environment and that things happen around me even when I am NOT actively forcing the pace.

When she chooses freely the role of a slave then yeah, that would be surely the best scenario. If she is settled in her status, knows the don'ts and dos and has other people on the sim who are engaging a slave into role play it would be perfect.

But that is mostly not how it happens. When Victualia was started in Treve, she was collared to a man, who was actually seeing her one hour a week. It was never even time to clear up where she sleeps, what she was supposed to do, what kind of slave... nothing.. nada... all she was then doing was to train herself, which is for someone like me like hell on earth. It was frustrating and a waste of time (not his fault though, it was the circumstances).

Now I am happy with what I am, I can create my own role-play, can travel, can hunt, can fight, can do whatever I want to do. If someone would drag me to another sim and force me to stay and change my role, he best be prepared to invest his SL time into me :mrgreen:

I don't see how whether or not that slave character has submitted freely or was forced into her collar plays any significant role in what I said, really.

I often thought the proverb "It takes a village to raise a child" can easily be translated to "It takes a village to train a slave" for Gorean RP. If the guy who collared you doesn't have the time to groom you into the slave he wants you to become, someone in the place you're playing in - will.

The boons of a community, if you want so. Though of course, it's rather moronic to have a slave if your RL doesn't allow you to indulge in RP really. Might as well be one of those guys who actually make use of slavers and brothels that are only gathering dust in SL Gor to begin with. ;)

I think it is very significant if you play a role you like and enjoy or play a role because you have to, where you struggle and hate it

Let me guess, you never made an Alt and tried the role, did you? :mrgreen:

As I said, it was not his fault, I run into him and we could not know that moment that our online times do not match.

Trust me, if you are with a viable rper it will be worth it. I do however have a wider 20% on my weekly total. Once a week of a nice 4 hour rp would be really well received.

Truth be told, I don't know how I'd translate that whole topic of how much time one expects from an owner/companion to your role as a panther.

So it's probably not the right question to ask one, to begin with.

I usually give people playing slaves and particularly my slave the benefit of doubt when it comes to ENJOYING the whole idea of slavery, involuntarily or not - so these "expectations" kind of stand, no matter how he/she came to end up in bondage.

And no, unfortunately I never made a slave alt - I definitely should, once! ;)

Well a Panther can easily be enslaved, then there would be an Owner. Perhaps I answer it for myself, because it is the utmost fear I have to be back in a role I can't really embrace or enjoy. Since I am Panther I have the first time the 3 days cap rule in my profile. I never played with it, but this kind of questions reminded me why I put it in there to avoid the situations where I am depended on other peoples role-play :D

There is no owner, there is no slave - there is a captor and a captive and after 3 days even that evaporates.

Sounds depressingly hollow, but to each their own.
