  1. There are a ton of vampire/werewolf sims out there. Not sure where you've been looking, but I'd recommend the inworld group Seeking Roleplay. New ones pop up frequently.

    Here are some off the top of my head:

    Clifton Forge http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Shadow Mountain/195/209/2002
    New Haven by Night http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Vitrac/198/212/606
    Nocturne http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Roman Land 2/34/114/1955
    Ward Hollow http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Arvid/149/26/4002

    But it also depends if you're looking for a specific lore. You mention books, but not what books and whether you want something based on what you're reading. A lot of sims are based on World of Darkness/Vampire the Masquerade, for example. And I can't vouch for the quality of any of these, although I've heard good things about Clifton Forge and Nocturne at least. Either way, good luck!

  2. Yeah it happens now and then. I usually just take a break and do something else until the desire to RP comes back. Enjoying other types of media can help with creativity and inspiration too.

    I have more..

    People who feel they are beyond the sim's rules and use side steps to skirt around regulations, perfect example a sim I was RPing in has the tag predator and prey, in their website RP rules it explains if you wear the prey tag, you are open for kidnapping by any one wearing a predator tag. Still, they only want to be kidnapped by someone of their choosing, not taking the role of prey by the rules of the RP. They now want a channel to Discord added to skirt the rule of "you are prey to anyone in the sim if you wear the prey tag." They want a Discord channel that you have to ask the person if they let you capture them but want to wear the prey label all the time but choose who can capture them. The rules state you wear the tag. You are prey, not you wear the title and pick and choose who you are willing to RP with.

    If it is the sim I think it is, they've always been very clear that it's a 'consent' sim. And the predator and prey tags are there to help RPers find each other, not to force anyone to RP with someone they don't want to. As well as the discord channel discussed was for people to let others know they're looking for prey or predator RP and what kinda scene they're currently interested in. Of course people are gonna pick and choose who they play with. They're not mindless robots there just for your entertainment.

  4. A bit confused about the 'end the roleplay when you leave the area' part. Cause yeah when you RP in a sim you will likely eventually have to leave. Because you need to sleep or make dinner in RL or even go shopping inworld for more RP outfits and whatnot. That doesn't mean the storyline ends. Next time you're available and go back to the roleplay sim you'll pick up the same character and and maybe go play with the same people again. Or new people, cause no one likes cliques. 😛

    But it sucks if people aren't willing to wait for you to post or can't forgive a few spelling mistakes. That's definitely one of the downsides of roleplaying in real time unfortunately. I've gotten used to it now but I always found it intimidating when I first moved to chat RP from forum RP. 

    Either way, good luck! Hope you find some good RP buddies. Roleplay can be done in an endless number of ways, so don't give up.

  5. It does have 'porn' and 'hentai' in the landmark key words. But yeah, it looks pretty cool. Can't tell how much of an RP sim it is though, and how much is just, themed hangout? Couldn't find any rules or anything. Still seems like a cool place.

  6. Yeahh, OP may have all of the best intentions and stuff, but it is a bit weird, especially being from europe where discrimination against Romani is still very much an issue, seeing how a lot of people in SL RP seem to treat 'gypsies' as some kind of magical fantasy race. When they very much exist in reality and still deal with a lot of crap and stereotypes.

    Maybe it would be better to take it one step further and make up a whole new fantasy race/culture with some of the aspects people want from the whole 'gypsy' thing? Idk, just a thought. Would still require enough uniqueness to not just come off as gypsies by a different name.

  7. I also feel like there are some options missing in women's clothing. I would love to see more like, medieval fantasy rogue, thief, assassin-type fashion. It's often been my issue that there's a lot of either big fancy gowns or super skimpy outfits, but harder to find anything in between. I don't need outfits that are historically accurate, if anything I prefer original, unique fantasy-inspired clothes and armor.

    I also totally support the creature avatars idea! SL could sooo use more good monsters and realistic animal people-races like, I don't know, tabaxi, gnolls, kobolds, and so on.

  8. There's no wrong way to RP in SL, or outside of SL. Just try different things and do what you find fun. There's no need to hate on any one style, you can find different places for different types and people who like one thing or another.

    But yeah para RP can be pretty awesome and it works just fine in SL. It makes a perfect combination of visuals and imagination, imo. Doesn't mean everyone has to enjoy it, but it's pretty silly to say it's boring or doesn't work in SL when there's evidently a lot of people who are doing it and having fun.

    Really though, best way is always to go out and try things, ask people in whatever sim you're visiting how they do it and if they can show you. Can try groups like Seeking Roleplay and Roleplay Finder where people advertise their sims and RP communities, the group chats can be a place to ask questions too and get to know other people looking for somewhere to play.

    Hi Nyx. Yes, the cost of supporting multiple alts is a big factor for me. Unless it's a one-time throwaway appearance, I want to get good quality items for the character. Things that I can reuse. A nice suit for recurring Victorian RP is good, but do I need to spend much money on lava skin for a single appearance as a volcano god? I think not. Thanks for your response.

    Well, it depends? Can you find a lava skin that looks good enough at a low cost? And can you be sure you'll never want to use it again for a different character? I've bought stuff on one account that I wanted for something very specific, and then, maybe a couple years later, I realized that thing is exactly what I need for a new character on another account. But yeah, I mean, there can be good things about having separate accounts, but it's also annoying a lot of the time.

  10. I have a couple different accounts for roleplaying, but most of the time I only use one. It's already kind of a pain, when I end up having the perfect no transfer item on one that I need for a different character. I don't usually have more than one character per roleplay sim either, and if I do I make sure they hang out in different circles and don't meet. So... Having more than one account is often annoying and rarely necessary for me. The others I will use for the occasional temporary side character or NPC to only be used for a specific scene sometimes, but not often. And it'll end up costing a lot of L if I need to buy a bunch of no transfer things twice, like mesh bodies and what not. So, meh, not a fan. Kinda wish I never started doing it.

  11. Yeah... people can be weird. I don't think just playing as a different race falls under race play even, it's more "race bending". And I can't see why that would be wrong unless you're like, specifically acting out racial stereotypes or something. I'm mostly in SL for the roleplaying and I feel it would be weird if all my characters were always white.

  12. It's usually a fetish thing, not just regular interracial relationships. From what I've seen it tends to be stuff like slavery roleplay, with a white owner and black slave in like a plantation setting or something. Or like black men as 'breeding bulls' where they are played as being sexually aggressive towards white, innocent women. It seems to be using a lot of racial stereotypes as fetish fuel, which I could see being a bit uncomfortable and problematic.

    I don't know if it's 'evil' or not. I find it kinda distasteful myself, but I'm not really in any position to judge... But it's not race play just because you date someone of a different race.

    meat people

    That's a slightly concerning typo from a wolf ;P

    And well, I don't have any specific sim suggestions, but as you also asked for something like RP hubs, I thought I'd mention the inworld groups Seeking Roleplay and Roleplay Finder. Sim owners often advertise in those groups and the chat can be a way to meet other players. Good luck!

  14. There are no "true" BDSM rules. Much like most things, it's about doing what you enjoy and everyone does it differently. Obviously you should be honest with your partners and have informed consent of everyone involved. On the other hand, if it's in SL and just roleplay, and everyone knows it's just roleplay, it's not necessarily anyone's business who else you play with.

    Now let the poor topic rest in peace.
