  1. By the way, do the math on a $5/month subscription. You would need 25 active subscribers to cover monthly tiers for 1 homestead wihtout rentals or larger supporters. Groups try to accomplish that through group join fees but it is a one time basis fee. Would a viewer change allow for a reoccuring group join fee at this rate, I doubt you could sustain your group. The best group join fees accomplish is to make people think twice before dropping groups they paid to join.
  2. Hello to this thread. I am going to give some thoughts about roleplay communities from an owenr of a 'roleplay' community. First, it just simply is not practical for the owner of an estate to manage roleplay. We simply do not have the time since most of our time is consumed in covering our costs which can be substantial. You can do the math for a large estate, I have 1 full region and 9 homesteads. Ouch. Roleplay always starts with the individual and always continues with the individual. The first step is to always read the rules of the estate and make sure you are willing to invest in the roleplay and the regions by purchasing whatever you can from the region vendors as that is a significant piece of their support. Secondly, I have found in the past that moderated roleplay can be a disaster because someone typically wins and someone loses. If the loser happens to be a resident that is contributing to an estate, or that person feels that someone violated the rules, they are driven off. Those who pay, keep estates afloat, plain and simple. In our case, we consider ourselves "Casual Roleplay" what that means to me is, there is NO moderation of peoples roleplay, and thus reduced drama. However, roleplay is encouraged and many on our estate will engage in para roleplay once someone begins it in character. In fact, those people get a reputation as fun to play with and it can continue to build. The downside (even at hardcore rp estates) is that someone will engage OOC and corrupt the roleplay. If I am in para, I will just remain in character becoming confused or answering the question from an 18th century perspective. (Or sometimes take the conversation to IM politely). Fee based groups don't do anything to contribute to good roleplay in my opinion (and could freeze out a good roleplayer). Also, all too often a good roleplayer will come in and ask for 'just a few prims' to set up shop where they 'promise' to roleplay, and that is a disservice to creators. Most roleplay estates lose money on a monthly basis. Content creators do this for the love of the play. Bottom line, show your support, take your OOC drama away, avoid moderators and disputes (people can work their own stuff out), if you are on a battle region be willing to fall and have fun doing so, and by all means support the regions by renting there, buying there, roleplaying there and tipping there. If you want to save roleplay in SL, its all about the lindens.
  3. I have a full homestead available for rent. This homestead is a part of Trade Winds, which is an 18th Century piracy and sailing estate, so the build must be approved and it must fit within a theme. I am offering this homestead to someone new this wekend only, if they have interest in joining a long established set of regions (10 altogether). There are many events, you can add some of your own as well if you like. You can also sublet your region as long as residents remain within covenants. We do not allow parceling. The primary region is listed in destinations. This is a rare opportunity for the right person, but it is only open until tomorrow after an interview. IM me in world or drop me a note. I also may have another homestead opportunity that is completely built out, if you are not great at building, this one could be for you. That one could be all or part and if you are interested I will put you in touch with the homestead holder. The region is Trade Winds, the available homestead naame is Port Morant

  8. Trade Winds is looking for roleplayers. Trade Winds is a set of ten regions roleplaying during the 18th century. Sailing, battling, living in the past with privaters, pirates, simple merchants, wayward Navy, mermaids, natives and other denizen of the times. I have a few role open that could come with a small space to play and some prims for you to set up on our main region. In exchange, you will engage people who tumble upon the dark, wet "gin alley" and otherwise just have a good time and be a part of our communit. Open roles are: Undertaker, 18th Century Doctor, Butcher The Abandoned Hope Inn as well as the seedier Mermaid Inn could do with a few wenches as well. The regions are rated M, not Adult, and you should read and be familair with the rules. We do use spd meters voluntarily. If you want to know more about us, watch the video on Designing Worlds. You can find a link in my profile. Tinkatoi
  9. Featured on Designing Worlds here: http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds/episodes/pirates-tradewinds I now have open pyrate swamp rentals on Sabres Edge (181, 214, 23) A few rentals as well on Cartagena 1 left on Cayo Hueso 1 left on Macouba Events nearly every day. Fun events, not events where you are expected to tip constantly. (go to the end of the Designing World episode and watch the battle at sea!) Fun group of people, Trade Winds was formed from a group of hearty pirates when Fair Winds closed. Our aim has been to continue the pyrate tradition in SL that has gone back many, many years. Trade Winds has its first anniversary this year, Fair Winds went back many years before that. Pirate or Navy up and come check it out!
  10. The Show has now aired, but is available at this direct link: http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds/episodes/pirates-tradewinds Enjoy!

    Hey

    Try Trade Winds.
  13. Hi Amelia, Would love for you to come and check out Trade Winds, it might be just what you are looking for. There is roleplay if you want it, but it is casual. We do sail and live in the 18th century. There are ten regions all joined and a lot going on from day to day. Basically casual crazy pirate living within a good well established community of people who also build, script and just have a lot of fun trying to sink each other now and then. Come say hi.
  14. Ahoy there. have you ever wanted to find an actual community to live in Second Life that allows you to live in casual roleplay in another century? Do you want access to joined waters so you can sail your approved galleon to battle? (10 joined regions) Like to swashbuckle? Well now ya can! These super hot niche rentals come with homes provided, very little privacy, limited prims and a whole lot of ocean. They are crowded and filled with nasty swarming pirates, navy and occassional hangins. There is belly dancing, pillaging, rum everywhere, hidden treasure somewhere, dancing and cavorting. On land you must be in period dress. Meters are not required but helpful if you are in the mood for roleplay. I would also suggest you arm yourselves because there are simply no locks on the doors! (people will leave ya be). In the sky above 1000 feet do whatever you like. Prims are negotiable. Price is not, and yes it isn't going to be all that cheap, but it is affordable and a great deal of fun. This community is usually rented up and typically 98% drama free. (If ya want drama, you can bring it in character!) Pirates can be pirates, just don't tell anybody you are one. We are also a helprful community of builders, so if you need that kind of help always feel free to ask...only a single group to join. Come check it out, the best cabins won't last. Forgotten isles, Forgotten Isles, Forgotten Isles (109, 150, 21)
  15. Welcome to SL Ebbe, If you would like to do a little swashbuckling and sail some ships into battle and see some of the absolute beauty of Second Life, come drop by Trade Winds on an alt and be a gunner. Set your environment to midnight and turn up your volumne and laugh out loud as your ship sinks to the bottom of the pixel sea or sink another and shake your fist and yell out an *Arrrr, got ya mate!", then come hoist a bit of pixel rum at the Abandoned Hope Inn (helps to be hoisting some rl rum at the same time) and sing along to some pirate shanties, dance and meet a pixel friend and wander off into the shadows.... Or like I try to tell every new person I meet in SL... Run, run like hell. If you don't you will find yourself addicted to this wonderful place and you might forget to go outside, eat a nice apple occassionally, ski, make actual love, be with your family a bit more often. This is truly a place for the artist and the depraved and sometimes both shall meet, and lucky you, you get to deal with the actual financial side of things and try to move this entire word into some kind of platform that can enhance something in actual real life besides people dipping into their ids and egos. Best of luck to you, oh and don't mind the first paragraph it was a shameless plug although you really are welcome to join in, just don't come in a bunny suit, lol. Oh, please build and sell something too. Please take a look at that entire creative/marketing process. You will be amazed at some of the true talents that have immersed themselves in this world.
