Yep I lurked before I tried Gor rp. Y'all shaped my mind.

I don't think the host's examples were great, but... I see what he was trying to do. Not sure you are on the same level, but he was trying to explain that people can take the initiative, don't always have to wait for someone else to engage them by sticking to doing the usual thing. Which is not a bad thing, in general.

Throwing out a descriptive 'what am I doing' post is fine. Won't always get RP started. Still leaves it to the other to actually engage your character. It is a polite and careful way. Nothing wrong with it. But nothing wrong with sometimes being the first person to talk to another, even if it might be seen as pushing your RP on them. Might be a tad more difficult playing a slave in Gor, but even so.

Being the first to talk to someone isn't a 'man's job', or something.

Poor. poor Qingwen! Had I read the Gorums first, I would write Gor off a toxic, self-defeating community on a level with Reddit users!


I've done passive emotes on occasion, it's less intrusive and usually does get a response.

Pretty much describes all SL RP communities, just for different reasons:

Gor: IC/OOC confusion
Vampires: Queen complexes
Fantasy: God complexes
Urban dystopia: Death by 7 hour para post gun fights
Mermaid: Very strange erotica
Post apoc: Just a place to wear outfits that aren't allowed anywhere else (also known as GE)

Never tried Old West RP. But I hear they argue about pants.

Walking up and offering a FW a flower would be the act of a foolish, deranged, or terminally naive slave girl. So, you know- if that's what you're meaning to play, guess it'd work but otherwise, seems counter to the role and totally disregards the fact that FW in general hated and were ferociously jealous of slave girls and slave girls lived in terror of invoking a FW's wrath.


Yes, it puzzles me when FW players are kind to slaves, never jealous, never secretly envious, never cruel... I remember a sim where I was, there was a blood option and the OOC admins, in their notices, encouraged the FW to bid at the blood option to offer the girl to their FC... I really wondered what books these people had read... Because they always claim they read the books, of course.

I tend to think that it has more to do with the fact that most people don't distance themselves from their character. Their character is a part of themselves and they don't want to make it look bad, petty, jealous, cruel... Especially women... There again, the Earth morals take over....

At the end, these so noble FW are just... Boring.....
