All i was saying is that in SL Gor i can't play a panther girl without compromising my character. If you can Vio - then great.

Most of that will happen as solo rp though since the majority of panther bands i have come into contact with are not really interested in playing out tanning hides for any extended period of time - they want their Ying...to use Glaucons expression. And this is valid for both GE and BTB players as far as i can see. When i say that i dont necessarily mean roleplay with men, but interaction with strangers in some way - new inputs and new faces.
I dont blame them. You know i was intending to join your band. But we would be playing in a skybox with each other 2 - 4? persons. Building btb storylines and all - i WAS excited. But i had to realize i need more people around. I isolated myself on our panther sim for 4 years. That is enough immersion and detailed roleplay with the 3 persons who were there on a dayly basis to fill my lifetime of need for exclusive panther band roleplay in sl gor.
Manon Seid wrote:What i do see mostly as rp in panther bands are people who are most probably manthers hating men to the extend they will do all sorts of ugliness to them when caught, they are usually all about fighting. Or when in camp, they are going solely after flirting/sex in any form, preferably female/female. They usually call themselves lesbians and will defend fiercely that its btb that panthers will seek each others for love and sex. Who knows a few of them might actually be lesbians as they claim. It does not change the fact though that i am met in panther bands with the assumption - every freekin TIME - that my character is a sassy girl looking for hawt sex with fellow panther girls. Bah! fucking NO...just ..NO! I am DONE with trying to weasel my way out of those situations.
Manon Seid wrote:The self isolation - immersion in band roleplay to proove being btb is just...sick. it wont solve the problems for panther girls to find btb roleplay interactions with btb sims and other btb players. As Glaucon said too. If people are content with that roleplay only seeing a handful of people when they log into sl...then thats great. Joining a band thats more open to interaction all the shit ge will follow too and thats when i need to compromise my character. Well no more.
Manon Seid wrote:Ops..yes you are right Vio - my apologies to the manthers out there that actually Do make great panther girl characters. That generalization i made was not fair since i mostly have no clue if my assumption was right that those highly lesbian sex focused panther players are actually men rl.
I gave up on panther girl roleplay in sl gor..i guess i am a tad bit bitter and disappointed with my fellow roleplayers still.
Glaucon wrote:...It is about some roles and types of RP being a lot less suited to private RP among a close group of regulars in a sim without interaction with others. Again, I'll use the pirate example. Sure, you could have pirates hang out in their local tavern, with their fellow pirate crew members. Could be fun RP. But what makes the role of pirate the role of PIRATE isn't in them lazying about in a tavern among themselves. It is in how they interact with others. I feel something similar is true for the role of panther girl, and most 'outlawish' roles in Gor.
