Sure. I didn't say that every census ever conducted in SL Gor was perfect. Just that such a thing has potential to lead to good RP, and if you're THAT GUY who's spending an hour in an admin's IM bitching about it instead of the 2 minutes it takes to fill it, it might be worth considering that there might just be value to it - if not for you personally and your story, then for others.

I get hit with things I've yet to see all the time in RP. It's what keeps me coming back.

I saw a notice that Ar's GE "trial period" (read: failed experiment everyone knew wouldn't work) has ended and they're sticking with BTB. So that's something. Turia build rocks.

I remember when Treve did a census once...they required all the Free Women to see the physicians to be examined...they were checking for "secret slaves" I guess.

I forget how much this one woman paid us not to mention her brand. :wave:

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

I stayed around in Temos just for a bit longer to see the opening day. A lot of people, as is usual for opening day. Unfortunately, majority were flexi-noobs and one liners. I suppose Temos is the new Rorus or Sais :lol:

Flexi-noobs fascinate me. I wonder how they manage to stay so out of touch that they don't know what mesh is. They actually make me smile, like an exhibit in a museum or something. I get all nostalgic remembering when I first came to SL and Girl 6 flexi hair was the shit, and flexi silks from Angelwing were like "oooh, so pretty!" and I felt so gawgeous in my Laqroki skin I saved up for months for. Happy memories. :lol:

Oh man, Angelwing...I think I still have some of their silks in my invventory. o_o

Nope, I stand on my first assessment. Temos did disappoint: uniformed textures all over, predictable city planning with reminiscent corners of Ar, all gates closed and scripted with pop-up menu, avatars looking extremely outdated. In fact, I wonder why Gor has such a base of avatars so outdated. Only some slave girl players, a handful of fashion addict free women and a random male character have good looks, though there is the long hair androgynous homogeneity. Yeah, yeah, not the first thing to look for in a rp venue...but damn counts.

Port Kar. Tried it again...and yes, I keep my 2006 assessment.

Ar is a very nice build and I am insisting there for now.
I will check on Turia next. But the heat, oh god the heat.

Turia looks pretty neat in my book. Confusing, but interesting mix of styles. :)

I thought it was confusing too but felt that was a good thing. The diversity of styles made it feel more realistic too

Confusing? Like, the lay out? The styles? Just curious...

On another note, did you guys know that Lydius is getting a rebuild?

Some of you may know that I am COMPLETELY in love with Leviathan Flux's build style. He recently sold his old Lydius pack and is now redoing the entire city.

Of course I want every one to come and play in Turia, but ya'll....this new Lydius build is SICK. :clap: Mesh, at it's finest. I don't think it's done yet, so don't judge, but go poke around if they'll let you.

Hey Feorie, replied to you in world.

Didn't know about Lydius but his building creeds are fantastic. I once had the chance to talk to him for my own, non-Gor sim I built but the dude was too busy and couldn't take the project. I like his views too: original, bold, edgier. The warrior hall he had in the original Lydius was impressive.
