BTB Legal Roleplay 2017

Postby Tantus » Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:24 am

This trial was holding no punches.

The defendant is represented by Janette, who trains 90% of BTB's Magistrates and Advocates through her Gorean Campus courses. And there is Sherman, who's highly regarded in BTB's scribal circles. The occasional guidance is provided by Landa's High Magistrate, Isabella.

Hilarious. These folks are channelling their good wife just a little too much.

If you ask these people, they will tell you that they are BTB, they read the books... I wonder in what of the 34 books, Norman wrote about a trial which is an exact copy of a Earth one, from a West country, especially for such a case...

Not to mention a "magistrate" who is a woman + the slave players ejected from the scene... Lame, deeply lame. These people are not "by the books"...

Very clever use of book quotes in role play. It must be like the time and space paradox we see in science fiction movies :)

It is the ultimate way to play BtB. Proving you are the by the bookiest of all, IN CHARACTER! Sheer awesomeness :)

Lol! And sadly, at the end, this whole scene is not even BTB, haha!

But it's a bit scary when you know that this Janette teaches RPers how to play a magistrate (and it's a mistake to think that in Gor, a magistrate always = judge...)

I've received the Trial's verdict, which also is a summary of the entire case.

What gets to me, is their use of book quotes during the trial.

It wouldn't matter on a random sim, but these people are teaching the recent roleplayers entering into BTB Gor. And it's not only the training, some cities expect their scribes to carry Gorean Campus certificates.

An interesting verdict though, basically saying the victim asked for it. So very Gorean!

O.o

BtB are three grouped letters that mean very little to me anymore. It's like asking someone what they thought of a debate, and their response is "Interesting." How? Why? Good or Bad? Who knows!

'BtB' is incredibly vague, and doesn't describe quality of roleplay as a writing style, authenticity for the genre its based in, visual aesthetic for the build you can expect, or even a marker for the type of players you might meet.

It's being used as an adjective for something that has taken on a whole new meaning. Rather than say "I play in a role play genre so authentically true to its lore that it's 'by the books,'" it feels like its come to mean "In this moment I will stop acknowledging my typist and become one with my character, citing quotations without analyzing them for meaning or greater understanding."

Maybe you're not a RL Gorean lifestyler, but you play one in Second Life... :roll:

It shouldn't matter to any reasonably intelligent roleplayer. They should be able to work out that the training is bs.

Perhaps the certificates do carry some worth though, in that you probably want to avoid roleplayers that have them and cities that require them.
