Only problem I have with apps, other than them being another hoop to jump through to get to roleplay, is that so often, in SL Gor, they seem to be a baffling mix of IC and OOC, going from asking OOC things like "display name", "character name", "how long been playing in SL Gor", "how many of the Gor books have you read" to IC things like "how many slaves do you own", "list your FC", "what is your caste", and if you're playing a slave character they don't even app you sometimes because it's expected that your IC "owner" will add you on their app, like you're not a real person or player, and thusly beneath notice or deserving your own personal app. It's usually quite telling that that's what to expect if you play on the sim, that odd and maddening mix of blurring IC and OOC that causes so many problems and drama and kills creative roleplay.

I had complete faith that the apps here wouldn't be like that and they weren't. Ten questions, all character/roleplay focused (merits, flaws, background, etc.). Was nice to see and bodes well for an actual Gor roleplay sim.

A moment to explain how CoCE: Isle of Illyros is different:

We are a meterless sim, this does however not mean that we will be a place without conflict and bloodied battles. We wish to experience the danger and adventures from the books, from brutal battle to intrigues and backstabbing. Some people definitely will die... (We are a perma-dead sim after all). But we want the focus to be on how these stories are written. We want slave-girls, Free Women and Free Men alike to be able to take actions and choices during battle which will matter or change the outcome. No longer will raids and battle be a shooter game, but a role play and storydriven game.

First of all we have written an expansive lore page which outlines some of the setup and past conflicts: http://counterearth.enjin.com/lore

Secondly, we have and maintain stats for the various factions which correspond to the open feature roles. Each faction and faction leader has at his or her command a large force of NPC soldiers, troops they can bolster and use to raid or fight their enemies. There will be raids, there will be captures, rapes, enslavement and murder, and some people will get crushed. Some will conquer and some will lose. Take a look at our current army stats page here:
http://counterearth.enjin.com/armystats

The combat rules are pretty simple, but can get pretty complicated when it comes to the army battles. Therefore we've created a calculator that does all the maths for you, all you've to do is enter the rolls and see the results pour out: http://counterearth.enjin.com/meeseeks

Here is a picture of the calculator in action: Image

What will you do when the time comes to command your own army? Will you fight honorable battles or pick upon your weakest enemies? Do you dare to take the leap to write your name into the annals of history or will you fall and be forgotten?

In Isle of Illyros, anything is possible, the only limit will be your creativity.

People are welcome to come have a peek at the (still under construction) build so far in the meantime, and applications are welcome too!
