Tiptoes feet

Postby Sasi » Tue Apr 03, 2018 3:15 pm

I read this in the sim rules of a new sim and I was... Wtf....:

"Slaves walking on tip toes will be taken to the Healers to have their feet broken and reset, so that they can walk correctly."

Definitely, for many people in SL Gor, this world of fantasy, the tiptoes feet are still a very big issue.

So, it's not correct for a slave player to choose this kind of feet for her avatar (not to mention there are a lot of nice adornments, even sandals, now, on the market for tip toes feet).

- But in SL Gor, it's ok to accept slave girls with unrealistic shapes (those which make you wonder if the girl didn't abuse with silicon injections in her breasts, butt, hips and thighs).
- It's ok for men avatars to be all covered with tattoos, even modern ones.
- It's ok for men avatars to have modern piercings.
- Your weapons which magically stick to your hip or your back with no strap are certainly more realistic than a slave girl with tiptoes feet.
- Your character's snowflake background is perfectly acceptable as well. It's your 10th home stone, the 5th caste you join, maybe do you play a slave girl with some nice skills (like very strong of smell that would make a sleen look useless) or you're the umpteenth mamba who is scribe or slaver or physician in a high city but it's ok, you're so creative.
- Unrealistic eyes are ok too, enjoy your snake ones or red ones. They make you look terrific (and even more creative). Women love terrific bad guys.

Etc etc....

Seriously, I think there are more problematic issues in SL Gor when it comes to our avatars appearance and Gorean characters, than the tiptoes feet...

I remember women who really hated tiptoed feet! It's a non-issue to me, but the rage is real on this one.

It's like the monthly argument of 'when should a slave kneel'. The easiest answer is when they're instructed to, but rather than roleplay this people take it to group chats and leave the sim in a huff. Tiptoeing is an IC event too, if instructed to be like a ballerina that's between the slave and owner.

Recently I learned FC-divorces are a thing in BTB now, just take your dissolution papers to a magistrate and end that contract by mutual agreement. I'm only baffled that my proposals for prostitution contracts caused great offence to FW, companionships are just that now.

I totally hate tiptoe feet but I don't really care if someone wears them.

By the by, I thought Companionships only lasted a year anyway? o_O
This isn't fucking Survivor. We aren't a tribe.

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 met a mamba slaver, with non human eyes... Tiptoes feet are unacceptable, but that BS of mamba outside the jungles, working as a slaver, with unrealistic eyes, is perfectly ok...

And prostitution is a book thing, for FW.. But it must be extremely rare, to end a FCship before its one year term...

I love Sasi but I will always dislike her choice to wear the tippy toes, LOL.

But there should be nothing in the rules about forcing a player to go through a medical process ICly to get rid of the feet. Especially if the player is a Barbarian character who wore heels a lot on earth - so much so that she could have shortened her Achilles tendon causing her to walk on her tiptoes. This really DOES happen.

I am not super invested either way, but given that a LOT of creators now only make compatible footwear (sandals, slippers, etc) for mid or high arched feet, because the market demand is for that, if I saw a Free giving a slave shit over having arched feet while wearing slave footwear, I'd be thinking "You going to pony up some fucking Lindens to buy that player replacement shoes? If not, then STFU!"

Seriously, it's as much a market issue as it is a player issue, and it's all OOC. Granted most slaves shouldn't be canonically running around in footwear in the Southern cities anyhow, but if an owner/master allows it, they're the final word on shit like this, not the Mrs. Grundy's of the Gorean community.

People need to keep their noses in their own business. Otherwise I am going to start getting in people's IM's and start giving them shit over how they're misusing Pani clothing, weapons, names, and other assets; and don't even get me started on the fetish-collaring of Pani FW into slaves on nearly every Southern sim...

It's like Ao's SL is a visual world to me, so if i see an avatar doing something visually i roleplay it.
The moment i do i regularly get blasted in ims about it or told what the fuck am i talking about AO's are ooc.

And when you see a warrior wearing his sword or bow with no strap, like magically stuck to his body, you roleplay this oddity, too?
When in combat you see guys hit with many arrows but still running, do you roleplay this other oddity, as well?

And do you RP what you don't see? If a slave serves serve your char a drink, without her avatar wearing a prim glass do you RP you see nothing?

Speak about coherence...

I've decided it's now part of my Builder's backstory that he invented electromagnets for Warriors to stick weapons on.

There used to be a gif here. It was awesome. But it's gone now.
