There are a lot of super bad ass people that post on these forums, with super bad ass friends. I think we can figure out how to make a fun -Gorean- sim.
I proposed the idea for all of us to work together to come up with something cool in this genre that people obviously love to play in.
People like to play slaves. It doesn't always have to suck. I've had experiences as a slave both ways. And Ceri brought up good points. I'd even add that, slave girls; there are a lot of OTHER people to play with other than dudes. If all of you RP is centered around male avatars, you are going to be bored. A lot. I think the ratio right now is 1 dude 5 female avatars.
Hell, I talked to my friend Zira the other day about a group of slave girls that played with each other as a crew, or a slave gang. Um-awesome! Epic idea and different! And penis free!
Here's the thing; you don't want to have to play in the theme, or play a slave, or agree with it for that matter. But, can we keep the 'naysaying' about Gor to a minimum? I mean, at least about the genre? In this thread? It's like shooting the idea in the foot before the conversation even started.
Use your evil genius to help us fix the problems so we can Gor it up with some of the best RPers on the grid.
These are still things you should be thinking about if you really, truly want to make a Gorean rp sim that's not like every other Gorean rp sim out there. There's a lot more to opening and running a sim then throwing up a build and opening your gates, if you want it to last that is. I know you know that, Feorie. These are all problems that you will have. You really should have some kind of game plan or set up to combat them when they happen, or lessen the chance that they will happen at all. This is the cycle in Gor sims. Someone gets a great idea, opens a sim, the same problems at every other sim flow into the new sim, the owners burn out and the sim dies a few months later. You have to decide what will make this sim last longer than any of the other sims that were great when they started and shut down shortly afterwards.
That chain gang was a genius idea, but it had the same problems that every other slave role has. It was sex rp or no rp. That wasn't the fault of anyone in that chain gang. They were all great rpers. They did have some good inter-chain stories which I think is the only way to play a slave. You're right, slave typists can't count on the male characters. Like I said, it's not any one person that has to work harder at getting some rp. It's everyone. If you can come up with a sim that supports roleplay for everyone that isn't -- Warrior takes slut to his furs until a raid pops in - FW gets threatened with a collar for having an opinion. Again. - Slave sits. And sits. And sits, because every person she's approached for rp has walked away from her. -- you'll be golden.
I'll stop commenting since I'm obviously a little negative about SL Gor and you seem to only want the positive back slapping go for it comments. Good luck on your sim. Go for it. I know that sounds sarcastic, but it's sincere.
