Yep, I had heard about it. What caught my attention was a new web app the team is building to simulate turn-based combat.Role Play Combat Simulation System
(Hopefully by now Branwyn knows more about form auto-complete in browsers
The system is still in pre-alpha mode, but you can sign up and become an alpha tester. I joined and started playing with it. There is not much one can do yet, but you can join a faction, play with their interactive map, and get a glimpse of the actions allowed for armies.
No integration with SL yet, but it would be cool to explore a way to leverage any public APIs that Linden Labs might have (like having the RPCSS map be a real-time rendition of the sim map, for example).
We'll see how this enhances RP at Comraich. Cool idea, for sure.
Purist, not elitist.
