Welcome back, Melisande!
In terms of Gorean para RP, the only sim that's really para and story-oriented right now seems to be Mjolnir
, a Torvaldsland village; I've had great rp there the few times I've visited, and the build is very well done (something you'd expect from an Okami build).
I know Lydius
was popular for a little while but he last few times I've been there it's seemed to be a ghost town. I have a friend rping in Ayr
, but again - the few times I've been there recently it's been quiet, though I'm told when it's active the rp is para and very good.
If you're looking to branch out, there are a few other sims in different genres that are pretty active right now. King's Landing
, the original (of the recent round, anyway) and still the best (in my opinion
) of the Game of Thrones sims is still very active and beautifully built. Blackwater Bay
, which was started a few months ago, seems decently active (though I've found the build a little generic tudor and I'm an unabashed build snob) and is also Game of Thrones-based. Both, from what I'm aware, skew para more often than not. There isn't really another viable medieval sim unless you're wanting to branch into the heavy fantasy stuff, in which case Mystara
is still active and has arguably the best medi-fantasy build available now (and has for years, though... it also has the laggiest builds, I've found). I tend not to encounter a lot of serious or darker rp there, but again, your mileage may vary (and to be fair, I haven't even peeked in in months).
For futuristic RP, you might want to try Remnants of Earth
- I've had more than one person try to drag me out to rp there, and apparently the rp is very good. If you visited Age of Ruin when you were last in SL you'll recognize most of the build as from the same creator, I think - I'm not sure if the sim is *run* by the same people as AoR was, but it definitely has the same visual aesthetic. I do see a bunch of for-pay junk in the landing zone which I think AoR had so... I'd guess yes, it's still the same people.
Hm. What else? 1920's Berlin
is still active, I think, and today they're having "Relaxed Dresscode Day" so you don't need to have the attire of the sim to go check it out (and maybe RP? I'm not really sure).
If you like vampire rp there's not... much out there now in the way of full sims - the only ones I'm aware of are Port of Deception
, which is quiet (or empty) every time I go (and just started allowing furries
) and Terra Novus
, which from the limited times I've poked around seems to be steampunk fantasy mix (vampires, mermaids, werewolves, fae, etc.) - but that's been quiet (1-5 players) or empty most times I've gone, too. The most active vampire sim I've been in lately has actually been New Marshall by Night
, which is a WoD mixed sim (they do werewolves, vampires, and mages I believe) - they're pretty active in the evenings, usually between 12-20 people on (quite a good showing considering they're a homestead). Venice Eternal
will open in a couple of weeks but... doesn't do much for you at the moment.
...yeah that ended up being longer than I expected. Anyway, good luck!
And that was that.
