  1. Wow. I bet someone will do this soon. Great idea!
  2. I like short-para RP best. Around 5 sentences. My partner likes much longer paragraph RP, and often writes several "chunks" of posts. However, he also can churn them out within about the same amount of time as I can churn out a couple sentences. If I run into a one-line poster, I'll usually cut even shorter for them. But then, before SL I RPed on IRC in a very rapid-fire way, as well as on forums which was often "novella" length posts. I think, you gotta do what you enjoy, and let other people do what they enjoy. But mostly, if the other person is posting content that is engaging and enthralling, no matter how long their post is...I will enjoy RPing with them. I've known one-line posters who are amazing, and those who are boring as heck. And I've known long-form paragraph posters who are amazing, and those who are boring as heck. I try to encourage this philosophy on our sim (Convergence) as well. The general rule is, "Post what feels right to you, and if someone else's posting style isn't your ball of wax, move on and find someone else who is." Some groups on our sim are paragraph length, and some are a shorter form -- two or three sentences, tops. Not everyone is going to like all RP styles. Not everyone comes to RP for the same thing. So, even if I don't have an answer for you, I wish the original poster much luck in what they are looking for, and I hope if you find it, you'll come back and tell us.
  3. If you're still looking, come on by and check us out at Convergence. Our new arc is starting. A lot of players get involved. And you know, some do their own thing. We're cool with either. http://convergence.enjin.com/
  4. Website: http://convergence.enjin.com -=What is Convergence?=- Opened in December of 2014, Convergence: The Lost City is an original, paragraph-oriented roleplay community that combines fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural and steampunk elements in a city magically preserved at the end of a recent near-apocalypse. 2023: In a world devastated by the engineered disease D-13, a disease which turned the bulk of the human population into psychopaths and cannibals, the city of Convergence appeared suddenly off of the Oregon coast. Like several other cities which survived the disease's ravages, Convergence is protected by strange forces. Unlike most others, though, this unique city is shrouded in mystery, and possessed of powerful magics. Supernaturals of many races, only recently having emerged from the shadows of myth, compete with stragglers from the cyborg death squads, robots, and the last remaining humans to survive, attempt to find meaning in the world in the wake of pandemic. -=What are the features?=- *Thirteen races and dozens of sub-races. Races include: Humans, Mages, Mutants, Cyborgs, Robots, Vampires, Shifters, Fae, Angels, Demons, Yokai, and Wraiths. Sub-races include: Imps, Merfolk, Drow, Duergar, Faun, Satyrs, Minotaurs, Centaurs and more. * Thirteen different factions, each with their own areas and spheres of influence on the sim. * Original, Multi-genre lore: Our compelling lore spans several genres, allowing you to decide if you want to focus on sci-fi aspects, go a bit more post-apoc, immerse yourself in steampunk or fantasy, or just be very modern and urban. *Magic: Over 25 different types of magic, with many "extras" to augment and specialize your character. Specialized mutations, augmentations, and powers. Human abilities on par with supernatural ones. A system is in place to request specialized and unique magics based on your character and creativity. *XP and HUD: Free optional XP system, allowing people to grow their characters, based on participation rather than on presence on the sim. Our optional HUD lets everyone know the "weather" on sim, as well as the phases of the moon, and provides tools such as titlers and post-order devices to help you RP. Please note: these are OPTIONAL and not at all required to roleplay in Convergence! *Numerous monthly events: We have several different events planned every week, from social gatherings, to quests, to combats, to plots run by our STs. Check out the calendar on our webpage for more! *Great community, friendly players: Convergence prides itself on being accepting, friendly, and overall a great community OOC. Our staff adheres to a strict ethics code. And we pride ourselves on listening to player suggestions and input, and letting the players "drive the story". We even have incentives in place to help promote RP with new players and new characters. *And Much, Much More! But not ducks. Except, maybe a duckmoose. -=Where can I learn more?=- Come by and visit: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Wasteland/170/224/1203 For info on our races, magics, skills, and how to apply to Convergence: The Lost City, stop by our website: http://convergence.enjin.com Alternately, drop in to our sim and chat with any of our mentors - they're happy to help you get started and answer questions about the application process!

  5. Website: http://convergence.enjin.com Story: In 2018, things were looking up for Earth...until a terrorist unleashed D13, a disease developed for the military, and meant to turn armies against themselves -- by causing soldiers to become psychopathic cannibals. With civilization on the brink of destruction by its own hands, supernatural races emerged from hiding to form a shaky alliance to save humanity. Suddenly, in 2021, the magically protected city of Convergence appears, as if from nowhere. Refugees and survivors flock to the walled city, but quickly become aware that Convergence may not be as benevolent as they were led to believe. Now, a year later in 2022, after a brutal city battle involving Celestials, a tentative peace has arrived, allowing angels and demons to settle in the city. But a new threat has appeared in the form of a comet that crashed down, delivering the hostile Elemental race to the planet. About: With 12 races, dozens of sub-races, 12 factions and dozens of magic classes, mutations, and cybernetic augmentations, Convergence's unique lore will allow you to play a broad range of concepts. Our story spans genres, from the Steampunk creations of the Ancient Engineers, to the sci-fi inspired Cyborgs, from ancient vampires to modern survivalists, there is much to see and do in Convergence. Our optional "immersion HUD" will show you the weather and time on the sim. It will also allow you to participate in our (also optional) slow-growth XP system so that your character can acquire new skills and magic throughout the duration of the story, and reward players for everything from participation in events, to journal-writing. Races and Subraces Include: Human, Robot, Cyborg, Mage, Mutant, Merfolk, Drow, Draikana (small dragons), Duergar, Imp, Shifters (wolf and other large carnivores), Vampires, Wraiths, Angels, Demons, Fauns, Centaurs, Satyrs, Minotaurs, and much, much more.

  10. My group "Convergence OOC" will not let anyone post to chat. I've tried all sorts of things, re-checked the roles, and no matter what happens, we seem unable to post to it. It's a pretty big group, and there's lots of people in it, we just can't post to it.
  11. Hello Everyone! We're now accepting apps for Exile - City of Salem. We're in our pre-beta phase, finishing up the final touches on the sim, and letting people do soft RP to establish backgrounds and contacts as we tweak the system and lore. Our official opening is May 2, but those who get their apps in and approved before this date will get a little something extra upon opening! Please read below for more details: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://exilerp.webs.com Exile -- It is a world of banishment, where criminals and monsters, misfits and dissidents have been sent for thousands of years. Trapped in this realm, unable to return to their homes, they have carved out a society. With a world that has begun to resemble modern, 2014 Earth, the people of Exile were just about to participate in the space race when a calamity happened, throwing open portals to distant lands and making Exile the newest battleground for a myriad of supernatural forces. Now, the War of a Thousand Fronts has come to Exile and your character helps determine the outcome! Learn more about our world and lore by visiting: http://exilerp.webs.com (The character creation form is also located there.) Exile is a Modern Fantasy game consisting of supernatural elements in a modern setting. Currently, we have eight "standard" races: Human, Demon, Angel, Vampire, Shifter, Mer, Fae, and Moai. Original races will also be allowed on a restricted basis. Factions will arise during our beta phase, most likely, and will include an Assassin's Guild, a Smuggler/Pirate Guild, an organized crime group, and a group of slave traders. We are open for applications and are "soft open" for RP. An official opening event is May 2. If you are interested, please join our OOC group for further announcements: secondlife:///app/group/a936f518-af60-a9ed-e960-547036150418/about Or read through our website (http://exilerp.webs.com). Additionally, feel free to visit our sim and look around while wearing an "Observer" tag: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Amalfi%20Coast/169/153/2200
  12. Linden Labs -- Can you please make the Marketplace Favorites Lists work more like amazon.com wishlists? The ability to organize or prioritize favorites would be useful. But more than that, the ability to share your favorites lists with your friends so that THEY can see what you want and buy you gifts would be amazing and (I assume) lead to more revenue. And since you, I assume, like revenue... Yeah.
