What's interesting is a friend of mine made a place called "Gor 2050". It was supposed to take place after the PKs have been overthrown. So, there was plenty of room for expansion and change. It failed. Why? It wasn't Gorean enough.Sempati wrote:The forums do not frustrate me as much, because I been frustrated with SL Gor from the moment I set foot in it. Far too many sources of bad information out there, too many out of context quotes, and too many that could care less about 'Gor' and just want the fight/fur/my way fantasy realm to play in. Not sure why Gor is so big honestly the majority seem to want to change the culture to modern style instead of RPing in the confines of the Gorean culture. I would think a Conan based RP would be bigger since its like Gor plus you have magic and female warriors.

But I'm not so afraid that I have to hide behind a role and not be friendly. And as far as saying that the main objective is to RP - well keep in mind that there's also a section here for Lifestylers whether the hardcore RPers like it or not. Some are even in the middle and do both! Not everyone is on the far extremes. It might be "pure RP" to you and some others but it's not to everyone.

If I want to participate in other forums I'll do that too. I'm here to learn, to post and share opinions and to communicate. I would also like to see things improve both on the forums and in SL Gor.

"My practice is not to foe anyone but it is a thought. It might help me keep what little sanity I have left. *laughs* Perhaps it is time to look at other Gorean forums where people actually play SL Gor and have a more open and optimistic attitude. Maybe these forums should be left to the non-players & the narrow "para-RP, only will RP with certain people, don't want to know you as a person, leave me the fuck alone" crowd."
