That sim needs to be flamethrowered to ash, that's the worst set of rules I've ever seen.
And anyone who would literally agree to having their SL controlled based entirely on choosing to play a specific role in a specific sim needs to have their head examined.

I mean, you could just decide, yeah, okay, not playing this game anymore, because it’s not giving me quite what I want. Or you might decide, well, I’m not going to be able to globally change any of this stuff but I can faithfully represent my kind of Gor while wandering about in other people’s Gor and not let the disappointment be a bother. Because, you know what? Even in the most perfect situation, with the most perfect players, something is still going to be off at some point, and I’m long enough in the tooth to spot the onset of disaster a mile off, so I’ve usually walked away long before it arrives.
For example, a few days ago, I’m in some southern city of SL Gor and a couple of guardsmen elect to depart from my Gor by deciding that Assassins can’t be in their city unless marked or in disguise, and try to roleplay with me for 30 minutes so they can legally kill my guy according to their Gor’s daft sim rules. So, I gave them 20 minutes of roleplay to see if sanity might prevail, then walked off. I get followed by one of them, who tries to close the gate on me, but because he can’t accelerate past me without running, my head start has me pass through the gate so it closes behind me on him instead. By the time he’s fathomed all that out, I’ve left the sim via the entry point and I’m up in the OOC skybox market, looking through landmarks for somewhere else. What I’m not doing is letting that bother me. I’m not IMing everyone, telling them how daft they’re being. I’m simply leaving for new pastures. The next day, in the exact same city, I might meet some other players who are not so daft. Those people might get a longer play time. But, you know what? SL Gor has always been like this, a thing that fails to measure up but can sometimes hit the mark. It’s up to the individual player to decide for themselves if it’s worth wading through the mud to find that spark of brilliance. Currently, for the moment, I’m not minding the mud, because sometimes that mud can be amusing enough that I can enjoy spending 10 minutes of my life waxing lyrical about it on a forum.
Although, if tomorrow, a promising Roman sim opened, with a decent traffic, I would join and forget Gor.
