unique personal explanation for other : it was fun, but now retired because : people that start to play Gor, nowadays, quickly seem to think that they MUST enforce their views upon others, instead of play a game. Not only about what Gor is, how it should be played, but also about everyday life details. Gor seems to create the need to dominate peers, and SLGoreans will do whatever is within their power to do so.
In an Sl environment that is :
not the range of their sword for the lifestylers
not the rape of your slave for the sexplayers
not the script of their play for the storyliners
nor the enforcing of their thoughts for the soulplayers

We forgot the most important category of Goreans : he/she who came to sl Gor to merely forget and spice their miserable life, and use the tools of a MMORPG, to make themselves feel good.

Holy crap, someone observant.

I have a go with the flow, laissez-faire and whatever floats your boat kind of attitude in SL and also SL Gor. If it gets to weird for me, I just will RP myself to the exit.

Gotta say between, Roleplay Character + and a few others up there. I am a hodge podge. Sometimes I distance myself from my character(or try to). Other times she's a part of me a little bit. I guess I'll just copy-paste my profile 'pick' on what I'd written.

"To Roleplay is 'pretend', but perhaps its not quite an accurate statement for me. When I 'play' my characters, they become a part of me. Their lives and stories, triumphs and perils. They exist, even if its only when I sit down at my computer.
--Please Respect this--- "

Yeah so I kind of flip flop. Roleplay is roleplay, and yet occasionally I do think "How would X character have done it". Or how would I have done it.

I agree with you 100% thats me........... I am a mixture of a few of these. I am a RPer with storylines going. Now I go wherever the story takes me and whatever happens happens.

Add me to the list, with the addition that I will most definitely take the person behind the keyboard into account in certain dramatic events. I will IM that other person to make sure they are ok with what vile or dastardly deed I am going to do to them... :grind: (Well, the women, that is...Haven't planned on doing anything vile or nasty to men... Ewww, gross-buckets! :sick: :fleeflee:

And so help me, I LOVE these new emoticons... Can we get the Anime Grind back?

Sounds an awful lot like RP Character to me. Image

RP Lifestylers = People who embody their avatars with their own RL personalities who react very personally to the immersive SL Gor environment within the cultural expectations of the fictional world of Gor and develop emotionally invested and intimate interpersonal relationships that may or may not be the same nor extend to the alternative social structure outside of SL.

Real Lifestylers = People who embody their avatars with their own RL personalities who react very personally to the immersive SL Gor environment with RL expectations guided by the principals of Gorean philosophies, who may already have and/or wish to develop emotionally invested and intimate interpersonal relationships that extend beyond SL into their own similar RL social structure
.

When I first started playing, I thought I was just playing a charater however my personality started coming through more and more. While I had read about Gor long ago and understood much of it, I never considered myself "Gorean."

Then something happened. I started to bring Gor into my Real Life, so much so that I'm now considering a real life Gorean style relationship with someone. So I am moving more towards the RP and RL dynamic.

Anyone else experience a shift in their way of looking at the (real) world?
