I love exploring this sim, wandering through the gardens, some of the best intimate outdoor spaces I've ever seen in SL, and there are a lot of great people playing in Hesius, too.
But I'll admit to having trouble getting started there. I popped in once as a slave character, found two nice folks to roleplay briefly with, a Pani she-urt and a slave girl.
After giving it some thought, I decided to try to play a FW, a slaver of all things, to really stretch my 'chops' so to speak and give me some interesting ways to interact with free and slave characters. And popped in another couple of times. And to my surprise have been rather aggressively ignored when posting, even when posting directly to people asking them questions- I've had 5+ different people either not respond (possibly AFK) or even worse, not respond and walk off without reacting in any way to posts that were directed at them.
Once or twice I could write off as 'maybe they didn't catch my post?' but after several times now, starting to wonder- is it that hard to get going in Hesius? Or is it just me? Should I try playing a slave again? I'm honestly surprised at being ignored on a FW character, I guess I am less surprised when on a slave character, I sorta expect them to be ignored at some points because that mindset is epidemic in SL Gorean RP, but didn't know you could just as easily be ignored on a FW character. Admittedly, the folks I'm running into for the most part seem to be...well...really outdated avatars, nobody I recognize, really- but I try to play with whoever I stumble across, and these are the people I'm running into in the public places.
Anyone got any clues for me? I'm genuinely not sure if it's me or the sim, so asking for advice/tips on how to get going here.
