  1. well said Oberon, one could also point out that how much real money you spend on your imaginary activities has no bearing on this conversation. people have been spending real money to bolster imaginary fantacy since long before the printed word. so go enjoy your SL, stop worry about what other people are or arenot doing that have no real affect upon you. Progeny status only matters in progeny. period. if you want to play then that is a different story. But do by all means keep ranting and raveing against us. Please go out and tell everyone that you know how bad we are, get them to tell everyone they know how bad we are. and so on, and so on, and so on. www.progeny-vampire.com www.behindthefang.com @progenysource
  2. Progeny Countermeasures LOL that's hilarious. Though any progeny vampire caught sharing private system information with non-players will be banned from the system. -- Now? do I care about non-players? I do and I don't. I see all non-players as potential players, so I do care to some degree. But let me be absolutely clear. The Status of any given avatar in Progeny has no bearing on you, your avatar or anything else unless you are a player of the system, this is why LL doesn’t care, because it doesn’t matter. Only if you want to play progeny does it matter and then getting your status changed is ... well easy. So.. if you are all bunged up become some group imaginary vampires, imagined that one of them may or may not have imagined biting your imaginary person because you were all imagining your own little imaginary worlds in the same imaginary space, then you my friend have bigger problems that some game you don’t play. If you don’t like progeny, don’t play it, if you don’t like progeny players don’t associate with them. If you want to be a Real Vampire within the imaginary virtual context of Second Life then join us you are welcome. BUT, don’t go around bothering the non-players that is not only not the point, it’s against the rules ( not sure why that is dishonest LOL but ok sure why not ).
  3. I have released the latest epesode of Behind the Fang. http://www.behindthefang.com/Episode5 Enjoy. www.progeny-vampire.com
  4. http://www.behindthefang.com/ New latest SLARP development meeting has been posted to Behind the Fang. Comment to above: Someone above said " even if Lachiel now admits to wanting to make a profit " I have never claimed otherwise, Others have frequently and consistently assumed different. My Policy is, and has always been: Everything "needed" to Play progeny is and will always will be Free. Many optional add on things have a free option or a fast for money option. many more completely optional and unnecessary things have a fee to support the system's development and operation. You can, and for as long as progeny exists, play for free, the system and the community and never pay one L$. -- What kind of person Oberon is, or isn't is irrelevant to the conversation. While he is one of my chief advisors, ALL decisions related to the development and operation of the Progeny: System are my soul responsibility, I frequently and consistently go diametrically opposed to all advice from my Diabolics and Arch Vampires, I just as frequently and consistently grant them their requests, all dependent upon how I feel the decision will best serve the Progeny Community. SO: if you hate the system,,, hate me, if you love the system, love me. I don't really care which, just spell my name correctly :-)
  5. I cannot speak to the attitude of everyone who uses my system to do their roleplaying. But i do care about all people. That said. There is someetimes little i can do when people outside the system are involved. I have zero athority over people who are not in my system. Bybway of example i frequently get a complaint such as one of your players killed one of my family. I do the research and find no evedence of a progeny bite. The user then says yes they used the hungar hud to attack.. but the player is in your system My response always is. Hunger is not progeny. I have no way to detrmine what did or didnt happen in that system. Please take it up with the makers of hungar or the lindons. There is little i can do if the progrny system is not used in the activity that is reported. And ingeneral my system is designed not to bother people... Result i pay attention to every case. And take action when nessissary.
  6. New Progeny Vampire Podcast: Behind the Fang: epesode #1 and #2 are out now. www.behindthefang.com in these epesodes I speak with prominent members of our community about verious topics related to the system.
  7. Snowgoose, I launced the Marshals and later the Advocates, Inquisition and Arch Conclave Tribuneral. because for 3 years now I have mostly handeled these cases myself unilaterialy based on what ever evedence was presented at any given time. this system places a group of people in charge of alligations of abuse, ( and in-system law violations ) Marshals Investigate any alligation of abuse to the best of theri abbility, they report the findings to the Arch Vampire Conclave and the Inquisstion. those two bodies determin if there is enough evedence to hold a tribuneral. the accused can be represented by the advocates office who can conduct their own investigation. The Arch Vampires as a unit hear the case and make a decision if action is to be taken. ----- in cases wthin second life where you and I are not Lindons we have limted resources to verify things after the fact. frequenly we have to go on gut and what ever information and testemony we can aquire. haveing the Conclave hear and rule on the case insures some level of fairness as there are 8 minds to question and 8 minds to choose. rather than my 1 freuqnely taffypulled brain. ------- Rules of Progeny First progeny is not Really a Roleplaying system. it is a Roleplaying Aid Eco-System its a framework of tools people can use to roleplay a vamprie. so at eh system level the rules are minimal. Do not Break SL's TOS Do not exibit abusive behavior toward anotehr player Do not Exibit Abusive Behaviro toward a Diabolic No excessive Fowl Langage. No-Nonconsutual Biteing ont he progeny SIM. all clans and houses have their own laws. and the marshals investigate those too but at the system level I am only concerned with player to player ( or non-player ) abuse. and that is largely covered by #1 SL's TOS
  8. there have in fact been a hand full of players banned for abusive behavior toward a non-player of the system. that said many situations that involve non-players are extreamly difficult for me to prove, I am not a lindon, I cannot access or verify private IM logs. or SIM records etc. 99% of such He Said She Said dose an shoud be reported to the lindons. if the lindons ever asked I would supply them with what ever information I have to support an investifation. but my system for the privatcy of it's players and everyone else only stores a very limited set of information nessissary to run the simulation.
  9. OH! I forgot please visit http://www.progeny-vampire.com for more informatin about the system or visit us at the Grave Designs SIM SIM: Grave Designs ( Home of Progeny: Vampire )
  10. Good Evening, As the creator of the Progeny: Vampire system. I though I would chime in here to correct a few minor misconceptions that have been said above. I do so at the risk of stopping this debate/rant, and trust me I do not want to do that. RevengingAngel1 and others. Keep it going please! Hate on me and my community all you want, I dig it. MC1-- Progeny was to be always free. NO! Many have had that idea, but it is not correct. Progeny IS and Always will be Free to Play. Meaning everything necessary to play is free or has a free option. The HUD / System is free, so long as you find someone willing to embrace you. Potency is Free if you want to wait for it’s natural generation or you can buy some, or swap with others. But I have not worked for nearly 4 years because I am a saint, I do hope someday that this system will generate revenue so that I can devote full time to it’s development. It dose cover slightly more than its costs now and that is a big improvement. Progeny is a business but you can play it for years and never pay one cent if you don’t want to. MC2-- Only two or three people in the history of the system have ever been promoted for their financial donations to the system. Most are self-promoted, getting into the upper echelons of power, Arch Vampire Diabolic, member of my own SL family, is based on contribution to the system in the form of participation not donation. MC3—rants of Non-Progeny Players. If you do not play progeny and do not want to play progeny, your status in Progeny doesn’t matter, it has no real effect on your AV in any way. The affects of progeny are strictly within progeny. No personal information about your AV is obtained or stored with the exception of the UUID which is a random and unique serial number associated with every object in SL, Avitars, Prims, Messhes anything you can see except particles. There is nothing to tie this number to your RL personality, or even your avatar unless a progeny player encounters you again later. The name and such that are displayed in the HUD messages are acquired via LSL script in real time when they scan you and are not stored. Example 1: Progeny is like a LARP in RL, imagine you go to a bar in RL where VtM is being played Larp Style. You are having a drink with your Girl Friend. Two LARPers are playing at the bar behind you, one says to the other who is a ref “I mesmerize the guy behind me and take a bite” , the ref says “ Ok you gain 1 blood point “, the first guy says, ok lets go do that combat now. ( progeny is like this ) Were you in RL really bitten? Was your conversation with your GF interrupted, did they tap you on the shoulder and say,,, “HEY were are playing a game and I want to pretend to bite you so I can win this combat later, and hey here is a business card so you can join the game later if you want too it’s just 5 dollars to play.” NO, that Roleplay had nothing to do with you and should not interrupt your conversation in any way. Example 2: You are at a party mixing, some dude in a black cape walks up to you as if to chat, rolls some dice in his hand and looks at you, smiles and says “ I am a Vampire, I just bit you and now you are dead “ laughs and walks away. Never having physically touched you. Are you going to run to the police and claim you were assaulted? And that your personal freedom was violated? No!, you will turn to your neighbor and say “ man that guy is a whack job! “. If you do go to the police and say “I was attacked and killed by that guy, I want him arrested!” the police are going to smile politely and think “ you are a whack job! “. I could go on, but,,,, Both of these examples are like progeny, and most other vampires systems in SL, If you do not want to participate in their communities, the status of your AV’s object number doesn’t matter in the slightest to you as a player of Second Life. If at some point later on you want to join the system but find that your Av is considered dead. That is easily fixed,,, it’s a game!. Final Words! Those Avatar’s that are Banned from the system, there are many, and there are only two reasons people get banned from the system. A# Exhibiting abusive behavior toward another player ( not character to character ), B# being rude or obnoxious to the creator or support staff.
  11. Hello All, I am Lachiel Vaher, In Progeny: Vampire I am known as “The Source” and am the creator of the system. First I would like the express my most sincere gratitude to Martin for all the publicity here. Since he started this rant, we have had many requests for information and seen a huge uptick in accepted new members. So thank you Martin for your contribution to the growth of my system. To everyone else, if you are interested in Progeny, I recommend you visit the website, Google “progeny vampire”, or come to the Progeny Vampire Caste, on the Grave Designs (175, 37, 22) SIM.
