  1. Role playing medical procedures treads a fine line between realism and "taking up too much Roleplay time on realism". When others are waiting for their turns to post, total realism is often not desired. I find it best to summarize and condense real procedures in RP or "Fade to Anestesia" and then pick up after the procedure. Deltal is outside by area, but Brady has a number of good EMS books available as a reference.
  2. Count me in as "highly interested" :-) I'd love to play with some other pen-and-paper gamers in SL
  3. Unfortunately, being "about the same age" as a 21 year old is long past me, but I "get" the kind of arrangement you are looking for. I hope you find someone and as diverse a SL is, I suspect you will :-) Good Luck!
  4. You really should wear the Gucchi wings with that Tutu Also....white after Labor Day? Seriously ? :-)
  5. Thank you Maddy :-) I saw that text and my eyeballs reminded me that they aren't as sharp as they used to be :-)
  6. I'm interested in this as well. Feel free to shoot Amandakeen an IM if you are recruiting :-)
  7. Rochefort was post-Zombie-Apoc, but it folded. I think Convergence is post-apoc to an extent
  8. Try Trompe Loeil in the market.....that might be them, and if not much of their work is in that genre.
  9. I live in the USA but work a strange schedule that gives me time to Roleplay during the daytime 07:00 - 13:00 Second Life time (if I did my sums correctly that's 13:00 - 19:00 GMT) 7 days out of 14. So, I'm very interested in identifying sims and Roleplay groups that are active during the daytime in the US -6 GMT. So, if you work nights in the US, Canada, Mexico or Britain- you're probably on at the same time as me :-) I am an experienced role player with few limits, I can do Para (or not) and my preference is for Modern or Scifi RP with a special love for post-apocalyptic or dystopian situations. I can have fun with fantasy, I just happen to like Moderns more :-) I have been "making the rounds" in world to see where the dots were, but this is probably a more efficient way of seeing where the possibilities are :-) Feel free to buzz Amandakeen in world .....l
  10. For the past 5 years or so, SL has had to deal with various people who are being "vigilant" for virtual pedophilia and child-cybersex in SL. With the best of intentions, those persons direct their attentions to sims that have (a) child avatars and (b) Adult Activity and it gradually created a "this is too much of a hassle" mentality amongest some RP sim administrators as Linden Lab placed tighter Controls in place to protect itself (and keep SL going) and the threat of them being litigated against as individiuals remained present. So, its the age-old story of "punish everyone to make sure you punish the few" I've never seen child avatars banned for meanness; its just a casualty of a litigous society. Well..I HAVE seen a few Child Avatars whose typists seemed determined to manifest all the most annoying behaviors small children can come up with (as well as some heavy-handed audio spam of "cute child sounds"), but a click of the Mute Button cured that.......
  11. I think they should not. People can vote with their feet of they choose not to visit regions that display objectionable (to them) material. After all, if a Linden Lab subjectively decided to ban all scantily-clad avatars from the forum; you'd need a new avatar - and that would deprive some of us of a treat :-) Just an example of what can happen when people get too happy censoring our world.........
  12. I'm also "elderly" on the age scale you mention, but I'm very much into the stuff you spoke of and nerdiness in general. Feel free to ping me :-)
  13. Are you representing a specific labor union?

I've been roleplaying online for years so I'm pretty well versed in it, as well as seeking out some RP Sims but right now I'm itching for a specific sort of roleplay: I am, shamelessly, a sucker for a fluffy romance. I don't mean unrealistic instant hookups, but well written and intense romantic pairings. I like romances with the backbone of a good story, a good plot, drama, direction, etc. I would like a roleplay partner comfortable with crafting stories with me. I keep a small sky box I love to decorate for various roleplay scenes. I'd also love to explore unique places as backdrops for RP. I am also happy to join a roleplay sim and roleplay with a larger group. I'm not shy and happily toss myself into new settings. My three main settings: Fantasy Steampunk Horror I have no issue with adult roleplay, though I prefer it to be part of a story. My characters exist below the waist as well as above it. As an aside, I am a married woman irl and not interested in OOC hookups, I expect a strong understanding of OOC vs IC. Current characters I'm itching to play; -Elven huntress who is very socially awkward. (Often an avariel elf) -Steampunk setting smith and watchmaker. -A dark-eyed half dragon who collects a hoard of forbidden knowledge. -A demon blooded witch with malicious intentions. I do also roleplay Furries but I prefer my human avatars. Most characters listed are female and open to any gender. If this sounds of interest to you, message me and let's get in touch! Hi Bitter! Are you on any during US Daytime? 8am - 4pm SL time?
  15. Karissa Furse wrote: hi there! the title says it all. I'm just not sure. am I looking for a boyfriend/girlfriend, husband/wife, to be a mother or have a family? if can help me decide that would be awesome! Maybe it'd be best to go hang out somewhere with a fun, diverse crowd of people and see what happens. SL has some REALLY diverse dance clubs and events, and more than one person has had their horizons broadened based on people they met by happenstance. Club Retro and Wet Willies are examples of dance clubs that stay busy and attract a broad spectrum of avatars, altho they are probably geared more to people who in Real Life are past 30 :-) Of course, thats why I hang out there :-D\ Drama Libre does only two events a week, but they seem to draw some really interesting people and the effort they put in on those events is really brilliant!

I have a pair of Lolas but also like to be more athletically/reasonably endowed and Lolas never really looked right shrunked down. The Slink Physique is a good choice for the mroe slender/athletic sized woman, Like I said if she set it between size (20 to 80) she would be fine, they always looked good on me. Where girls were going wrong is that were making them too large or too small, If you stayed within the recommended sizes they actually worked fine. What I was telling her is that I couldn't see the reason anyone would get them if they wanted them really shrunk down. To each their own, I use the Maitreya mesh body but never liked Slink Physique. Trem, I always had a bad time with Lolas when I lowered the breast size to "real" proportions. I kept seeing patches of the system-body skin showing thry the Lolas right below the base of the neck. Much sympathy to the OP.....I finally gave up and went to a mesh body. I use both SLINK and Maitreya (Lara), as both are compatible with Pink Fuel appliers. Which one I use depends on what clothing I need to wear and how the Alpha-layer segments work on the bodies in question.
  17. The Ultima HUD is nice, but make sure you're using it in an area where such things are allowed. The previous posters are spoton about how people using Magic Huds are sometimes treated in non-Roleplay (and in some RP) sims when they use spell-effects without the permission of others
  18. Faces were tough for me to learn! After a while, I found that I could get quite a bit of differentiation in my "look" by working the cheekbone sliders (puffiness and how high the cheekbones are) and working the jaw angle up or down. Forehead height makes a lot of visible difference as well, especuially now that many SL womens hairstyles are going to a more swept-back look. Body Doubles sells shapes and are not TOO expensive, but try the demos a lot on the skin you plan to wear (or a demo of it) before you spend Linden! "DemoCHurning" is also a good way to get a better feel for what you're looking for. Personally, I really like Pink Fuel skins - but everyone has their go-to ;-)
  19. I'm a Para-Roleplayer :-) I'm in SL a lot during the (United States) Daytime and in the evenings till about 7:30PM SL time. Para-RP DOES seem to be getting harder and harder to find, but feel free to ping me. There are also several SL Groups devoted to Para; Paragraph Roleplayer Paragraph Roleplay Lovers Paragraph Roleplayers Unite Erotic Paragraph Roleplay System Name: Amandakeen Resident Display Name: Amanda Keen

I think that is ridiculous, I know it was a big Sim but why are Public Sim owners that are not commercializing their land playing this much?!!! Like I said I don't see this happening because personally I think Sim owners shouldn't be paying this much to begin with when they are providing an area for people to enjoy in SL and many of us are already spending thousands of lindens per month in SL on other things like, paying for our land and our other shopping needs. I am not saying that these Sims should not accept donations or should not get help to support their Sim but asking people to pay $5 a month to be a member of the Sim is something that I don't see myself doing. I have MMORPG's that I play that require a subscription to play and feel that this would not be appropriate in this situation because honestly we are already paying so much as it is in SL. Personally I don't live Role-Play in SL, so this would make it undesirable for casual role-players (like myself) to participate. Hi Tremere! I'm glad other people are interested in the subject too :-) I'm really not pushing for any one particular solution, but I think its a discussion thats worth having. *Maybe* a sim owner will see an idea someone posts here and it will help their particular situation. I enjoy RP in Second Life, its a major draw for me. Maybe there are some ideas out there that will benefit all of us :-) PS: I'm insanely jealous of your forum avatar!
  21. Its been discussed a lot on these forums that the number of sims devoted to Roleplay have been shrinking a bit. Based on my experiences and what I've seen on these forums, it looks like the *difficulty* of Administering a roleplay sim (its like Herding Cats) and the expense (its hard to monetize tier for roleplay thru vendors on a reliable basis) of the Owner paying for a sim for others to play in are largely the culprit, altho some of the decline might be related to trends in popular culture and general turnover in the SL population. I'm just looking for ideas here from the general RP community....how can we ensure that we have places here to play? Do Players move more towards organizing in Roleplay Groups that play across whatever sms will permit it in addition to whatever else pays the bills in the sim? Do sim owners need to "take the next step" and make membership in a roleplay sim a subscription-based service? Players pay $5 a month to be a member and use the sim, but moving to that sort of arrrangement would also set an expectation that the Owner would maintain the sim to a high standard. That means keeping compentent Management within the sim, maintaining the sim's build well and keeping it updated as SL evolves, and dealing with subscribers who "don't play well with others" Doubtless some sims are still doing well and are monetizing thru vendors, donations and Owner Financing. The "bigs" like Crack Den seem to do well at this, so my question/concern is really targeted at the smaller RP niche-sims that are not such a big tent as "modern/urban" On one hand, its easy to say that "if it can't pay for itself, then let it fail", but in doing so we lose a lot of RP content. I'd personally like to see a lot of variety remain in SL's RP community. I'm sure Linden Lab has some idea that people are out spending money inworld to maintain and equip roleplay characters, as are the content creators - who would also take a loss should the RP community dwindle. Thoughts on preserving our options on places to play ?
  22. Interesting ! What time of the SL day are you looking for players to be around?
  23. At one time Midian City combined sci-fi elements in a dystopian futuristic setting. Doomed Ship is interesting as well.
  24. Back from a real-life interruption (darn RL) The intent behind TAP is to allow people to network with others who share a common approach to SL, not to protest anything or "raise awareness". The reality is that there are folks in SL who *do* care about other people's Real Life status - just based on the number of groups and Personal Profiles that cater to "voice verified" avatars. TAP is for those of us wo really don't care because we have no interest in "jumping to real-life" with anyone we meet inworld. That doesn't mean we can't be great friends/others in SL.....but it does mean that TAP members are probably a lower risk-factor when it comes to concerns about someone trying to invade your RL pricacy :-)
  25. Touch of Pleasure might be your cup of tea. They have some very good DJs and are LGBT oriented.
