  1. Looking for someone to do a HUD for my RP sim. I need it to be able to roll a amount of dice the user imputs, add them together and spit out a total. I also need it to be able to give players XP per week and let admins give players XP or take it away (once players spend it).  Of course willing to pay for service. Talk to me so we can negotiate price (AchillesAlpharius) inworld.

       Very much this. 

       Another thing to keep in mind when having a group of 'investors' is, making choices is going to get harder, as people very quickly may go 'I don't support that, I'm withdrawing my funding' if you decide to develop the RP or region design in a direction that doesn't appeal to them. Even if they aren't expressly 'owners', they need to be kept happy - a bit like the companies that invest in video games and then want it to be as profitable as possible, which is why the video game industry is currently in the micro-transaction/lootbox mess it's in. 

       To continue the parallel, I'd suggest, if you want to go with the 'multiple investor' thing, funding through Patreon or Gofundme or whatever those things are called might be a better approach. And if you do, don't aim for it to cover the whole cost at once, you'll have to be prepared to cough up some of your own money - and it's advisable to keep a small buffer in case people drop off, so that you have a month or so that you can keep the sim going to avoid having to close down overnight without warning. 

       Furthermore, the cost of a region isn't just the setup and the fee - you'll also want stuff to put in it, maybe even hire landscape architects, scripters, and builders. Depending on what you want to do with the place, that may be a pretty substantial investment. 

    We have the rest of it all sorted. It's just land we need at the moment.

    You could divulge quite a bit about your player base, numbers, your general concept (since GoT is a well-known entity) and most importantly give more information on your timeline, progress and what sort of return investors could look forward to in exchange for financially backing your project  - all without giving away any of the secrets or details that make your idea/approach unique.
     

    Perhaps you’d get more interest from investors if you gave a bit more information besides something that basically reads ‘my friend and I have a cool idea, could someone pay for it, please?’

    Sure! Right now we have around 14 players who are interested, but we haven't been advertising. Just word of mouth with people that myself and the co-owner know. In a generalized concept, we're going to be going with a location other than king's landing where there are multiple kingdoms in westeros.

    Sounds interestnig; keep us updated on your progress. 

    My first thought toward financing is that "player base" you mention, which typically is how roleplays try to finance themselves.  Of course, you need a healthy player base that loves your system well enough to want to help toward sustaining it.  Reminds me of an early medieval fantasy combat RP called Ambrea encompassing some 13 sims in huge continent of many active rp groups and factions.  Opportunities for interaction were all but endless. The combat system, called RPS, was entirely unique and included a progression ladder for a slow accretion of power and skills on a HUD/meter system that tracked progress over rp time and based upon ingame experience built by interactions including combat itself to work your way up each level. That system involved some real skills players could develop and that was addicting. That's different from the widely popular Gorean system, where there are hno levels, just player skills. The gorean bow fighting is a very good, better than RPS in my opinion, but it's melee system is utterly inferior to what RPS was in terms of skill developing opportunities and therefore, fun. Gorean sword fighting is like slashing in a mudbath with blindfolds and only lasts a matter of seconds.  The Ambrea weaspon system was so  good that players paid an ingame monthly subscription fee in $Lindens to the builder in order to keep their HUD & meters active!  It was a free system to use up to level 3 ( of 9 levels), so townies and village folk might play at that, but the tension out in the outerlands between factions meant ALL else wanted the abilbity to build their skills according to their fantasy race and cultural powers in magics, combat, healing, flying and so on.  That system's success and desireability brought in income that contributed to region coss.  Plus, there was an active marketplace in the sky to supply varous rp stuffs, and where all weapons developers sold their ever new development of various and unique weapons,  potions and so one. This too helps contribute toward costs. 

    We know that success breeds further success.  I suspect you have achieved in these first steps of creating yoru ststem vision, by the sound of it, but now you need a NEXT step, and you conceive it rightly as LANDS on which to build out the products of your system. I like the idea of collabing with those rp regions already in existence right now that might be attracted to your ideas and maybe even your system as a way to infuse their own game with new energy.  

    Good luck.     

     

     

     

     

    Thank you! Much appreciated

  5. Good questions. Without revealing to much about the concept and the systems. This is going to be run much similar to a tabletop RPG than what other sims have been able to provide in the past. There is also going to be a system for each GOT house to improve their landholdings, army, etc. over the course of the roleplay and use those resources in order to further their own means. We have both a physical, and social combat system in place that is both simple to use and covers all the bases for roleplay. As well, we are including the fantasy elements of game of thrones and will also have magic users in limited amounts with a fair and balanced system for their use. I can assure everyone this is not like any GOT sim anyone has played at before, despite the stigma associated with the genre.

    I am experienced at running sims and have been on admin teams before for a few major player sims. I know what it takes to successfully run a sim and I have no other motivations other than to see the sim succeed and do well.

  6. Hello there! Thanks for taking a look at this. Let me explain my situation!

    I am part of a two person operation with a player base and a full sim concept with systems that is finishing development, our problem right now is that we simply have no land to roleplay on and do not currently have the financial means by which to acquire land to roleplay on, partially due to personal financial situations and the linden land situation. We are hoping to find a financial backer or multiple backers for our project that is going to be Game of Thrones based with very unique concepts. We hope that the coming House of the Dragon HBO show will also help us kick up membership. 

    If anyone is interested in possibly backing us or partially backing our roleplay project and joining our community, please contact me here or on discord at CleverPolarBear#9231

    Thank you so much for reading and I hope you have a very happy holidays 😄

    Hey everybody. I'm looking for a RP partner on a brand new sim that just opened, Supersition Valley. It's set in the World of Darkness, in Phoenix, Arizona. My character is a Tremere Vampire antitribu, who runs the local Sabbat. I'm looking for someone who is willing to be my partner in crime and I'm also looking for individuals who might be interested in playing a Sabbat Vampire in a new RP setting. If you think that may be you, or if you are curious about Vampire the Masquerade, please feel free to IM me : AchillesAlpharius in world.

    As a note to this, I'd also totally be down with playing as an Anarch :) so if that's more your thing lemme know!

  9. Looking for a giant cave that's 128x128 that will fit inside a skybox. I'm going to be placing buildings INSIDE the cave. Not sure if anything like that even exists, or something that will let me build that. That would also work. I have searched for the past 2 days on market and all I can find are small cavern systems, nothing that lets me construct giant caves.

    I'm looking to have a commission of this made for me to wear for a RP. I can pay, I'd like to be able to wear it like an outfit as I do not use a mesh avatar which means I will be needing alphas for it.

     

    Again! This is a paid commission. Please contact me in world achillesalpharius.resident if you are interested, or post back here! I'll check it every day at least once until I get it made..
