  1. I chose LadyShad0wz because I came from Halsoft Chat, aka VPChat, and it was there that I became a Lady of a manor full of vampires, so yeah it was based on RP purposes that I kept Lady Shad0wz, and as for Greymoon, I kept refreshing the last names at the time, and this one popped up 5 times in a row, and I thought it sounded all mysterious, and later on a friend said it even sounded like Celtic in a way too. Also at one time no one in SL had the name of LadyShad0wz with a Zero in replace of the O. I just decided to keep my name, but change my display name because I'm not very lady like. Even though I no longer RP as a Vampire, I do keep it as a reminder and just incase I do happen to get back into it.
  2. The first one in all pink was roughly end of 2010 when I joined and last one is updated. I think I changed her around a lot. My partner in both. His first avie was 2013, and took me 6 years to convince him to go with mesh. He is a little picky on skin color still. He's not quite happy with it yet. lol..
  3. I was bitten my first night in Second Life. I met someone that talked me into adding lindens to my account so that I could buy the HUD myself and let myself be bitten. I knew about the game because before joining I was researching vampires for a role play I was doing in a forum and ran across an article for Second Life and various dark themed RPs I could do. I was becoming bored with the forum para RPs, so went out seeking something new. Came to second life and started frequenting the freebie galaxy, and other various places and was approached by someone who took me to their clan land and introduced me around. I became a vampire that night ,but sadly it was all about cliques and so forth so I didn't get invited to much because I was not into ERP, so I left that clan after a month, then started learning more and more about bloodlines, and decided to start something new, within a month I had people coming to me as I had purchased a few blood tanks and I seen a lot of the new ones being turned loose and spam those bites. I tried to help as many as I could from what I had already learned, and helped them find places in other clans that would provide them with Blood dolls, and tanks, and so forth. I tried for a few different clans/families, what ever . Never truly fit so just opted to make my own, and had a bunch of friends join second life, and they all let me take their souls, and eventually they left SL , so now I hold a ton of souls, but no one plays it, so now I just learn about the new products so that I can keep up, and try to help yet again a new wave that are not taught to spam bite, but right now I don't log in often to help like that anymore. Then I tried Progeny for 2 years and got tired of the secrecy, and all the in family fighting, so left that too. Now I have a group for Anti-Progeny just because well I'm perma banned there and couldn't be happier. I do share some of the items I find on MP to those that want ways to detect Progeny , but it's quiet there too now. So I come and go in SL as I like.
  4. Progeny is still around, but from rumors I've heard is it's more about in fighting now. There are other games that most have joined like the Eternal conflict, and other stuff like that. I no longer really follow much of Progeny based stuff, but I do have friends that are still apart of it, and that is what they told me. Most have moved onto other games with Angels and Demons now. Eh, myself. I'm a bloodlines carrier, but with Forever amulet I don't play it anymore. As for Progeny I doubt they will ever truly leave. Most just went to find new games to play now.
  5. My RL/SL Husband, and myself. Taken just for fun a few weeks ago.
  6. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Hello-Grymmy-Cyber-Dragon-Exclusive/4666701 As for the other items, they are harder to find without names, But the above link is to the Marketplace where that is listed. Hope it helps somewhat..
  7. Thats the thing, it was NOT apart of the progeny system, it was being developed as a HUD by myself and a friend who has scripting knowledge, and yet you still don't understand the fact, there are many things that are NOT apart of most systems, but the players use them. Just because it is NOT apart of the system via the original creator, does NOT mean it's players will not make them, Like for example: Spikes, Claws, and etc are made by others that use the Bloodline Scripts.
  8. If they use that and the Open Collar Leash script, just place them into a hud, and it will work. At least thats probably how they are doing it. We were designing a HUD with that script, An online script to show us our enemies, and so forth. It was beta testing, and the friendship ended because I refused to bow down and kiss a**, whatever happened to the HUD beyond that is well beyond me, because I didn't care. I deleted mine along with everything else that belonged to progeny
  9. The type of script she's talking about is listed here http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/AvatarFollower They have scripters may have rewrote that script to allow it to work in No script areas, I know of it , because back when I was apart of Progeny a friend of mine and I were developing a HUD that didn't go anywhere. It was just used for us, after the friendship ended however. It was given out to a few others, and I don't know what or where went afterwards. I'm going on Two years out of Progeny and I must say I'm loving it. Then again I don't go into SL all that often as I play games online now, and have no real desire to sit in SL dealing with the progeny BS anymore.
  10. nice to see that group take off like that. I don't log in and stay on long enough to even think about joining anything. Hope this works out for everyone. I really need to log in one day and clean out offlines. Just read they upped it to 50 for prem members. I pay for it, and rarely use it now. Sad huh?
  11. When I see skins with those lips, makes me think of suction cups, just wet them babies up, and slap'em against a window. I'm sorry I just can't see the need to have lips bigger then ones head per say. There is a lot that makes me question SL anymore, and a lot of it is the skins.
  12. I totally understand the time difference thing myself, and let's not forget that some just well give up SL all together. I'm in the same boat as you are there with some that are different times then I am. I guess that is why I rarely log in anymore. A little about me, I'm a loner of sorts, I do hunts when I remember which ones I like the best from the previous year, I'm 37, not into the clubs, but love to explore mainland, and hang out trying to help new residents, and make new friends, but I wish you all the luck in the world. I don't log in all that much, maybe we'll run into each other via a HUNT or something along that nature.
  13. Not a lot do RP with para styles. They do it mostly with HUDs, weapons, and etc. But yeah like Kitti said, you're best to either start your own, or even check out the one she's posted. I came from a 2d chat , and a text based chat and gave up looking in SL because a lot just dont want it.
  14. Thanks for lumping me with Snowgoose and RA1, but apparently clueless about me. I only gave insight about certain things with progeny, and their lack of Role-playing. I agreed with those that felt they should have the opition to be left out of their little game. As I've at a time or two hated being apart of Bloodlines as well because of the bad reputation that it had gotten in the past when I have read the older forums before garlic. I got labeled a griefer even though I never sent a bite request unless it was someone I knew in my old horde, but then I didn't even do that. I saved enough lindens and bought my blood before getting my forever amulet. I have been online since the early 90's when it was all text based chat rooms. Knew of SL, hell probably even have a forgotten name that is older then my one alt I found a few months after creating LadyShad0wz. No I won't give it out, because it's a name I keep hidden from the world. I use it for storage only now. I've lost friends due to Progeny, but have gained them back after leaving that horrible game. Yes that game like so many others can destroy friendships when they can't stop RL attacking in a RP scene. But like so many other SIMs I've visited in the past, the RP starts and then stops once they forget to seperate themselves from their character they create, or lack of creativity. Who is LadyShad0wz Greymoon now? No one, it's just a name that I log into SL with to check offlines, read forums, reply and then I go back to my RL Name and forget this world even exists. Even my Star War characters have names, some even a back story that I play out in the game, but over all, my RP days in SL stopped when I decided to detach myself from a game. Yes I now see SL as a game that so many will play cause they do NOT respect the people behind the avatar anymore. I feel for the ones that can not seperate themselves from this anymore because at one time I was one of those people until I left cause of RL issues, I thought I had friends, but in the admist of it all. I found out, I was just another name on someone's list that was it. Some of the people I've met while Djing became more then just a random friend in my SL list, they made it to my FB page where it has my SL display name Shadowz Greymoon (Shadowz Dragosani Brooks) but has my RL info listed on it. Yes I have a RL FB too, but don't use. Random Facts to be known. The internet once named Arpanet was created roughly around 1969, the internet known as the World Wide Web wasn't created until 1989, but wasn't released out for others until around 1991. http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2010/05/the-first-website-ever-made/ http://www.nbcnews.com/tech/internet/internet-world-wide-web-are-not-same-thing-n51011
  15. This is what I think most are complaining about, now correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe most feel this. First off let me say this. ROLL PLAY is a wiki site for DND, (Dungeons and Dragons) http://rollplaydnd.wikia.com/wiki/Rollplay_Wiki , I googled it because I wanted to know. It's also a loosely used game term too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game_terms#R_3 And that states this " Roll-playing: A derisive term for rules-heavy games, occasionally to the point of requiring players to focus on game mechanics at the expense of role-playing" Now taken from the dictionary.com site for what "Role-Play" is. verb (used with object) 1. to assume the attitudes, actions, and discourse of (another), especially in a make-believe situation in an effort to understand a differing point of view or social interaction: Management trainees were given a chance to role-play labor negotiators. 2. to experiment with or experience (a situation or viewpoint) by playing a role: trainees role-playing management positions.verb (used without object) 3. to engage in role-playing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing now what Progeny claims to be is a RPG (Role-playing Game), and it's easily read here as well. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Role-playing_game I've even seen some say that it's a loosely used LARPG (Live Action Role Playing Game), which yes most of what happens in SL can be considered that when on their own SIMs and such, but the players love to come out into other SIMs, while having a group chat or two opened, and attack other players and laugh about it. Either way, There is no role play with their "Food" as they call the non-players. When I was apart of Progeny (shutters at that thought), but how I was approached was funny, an ex-friend IMs me asking if I wanted to be apart of the "ELITE" and I accepted, after a week, I dumped the HUD, and walked. Came back because I was asked to give it a second go so I did, thinking things could change. Sadly they didn't change. It was still the same ole BS , I survived as best as I could. Even found a place within Progeny that I loved for over a year. Could do as I pleased, and didn't care. Wasn't until I was put into positions that I didn't care for that I started to back out. I had a few that I made into Vamps like me, but they wanted it at the time. Then RL hit and I left SL and Progeny for a good 6 months. Came back to the same ole BS that I left from. Only this time they were getting braver with their attempts to break their beloved masquerade. Alts were being thrown into the game, etc. I watched friends get accused of things they didn't do because it made one Arch Vamp laugh. Etc. It wasn't until last year that I had my fill of it all and decided that I would go against their TOS which was to not talk bad against the system. I did so on their own forums to say the least. I laughed when I found out I was gone, happy too because now I had control of my life and not felt the need to be pressured into anything. They feed on the negative of the outside world. So they do read these forums and feed on that negativity. Shows the true mentality of them. Very few have I seen ever Role play. Most didn't know and still don't know what a Character Creation was, let alone how to go about creating one. Then there was those of us that did try to use the HUD just as it was designed to be an Aid to Role-play with. But were told, "This isn't what it's for", because they couldn't see the understanding that was taken. This house that was in Progeny Role-played among themselves on their own land. I know because I was also friends with that house owner as well, and he just like so many others. Grew tired of the "Coming Soon" on certain tools that were promised to the community (yes progeny see themselves as a community), They packed up their buildings , removed their fangs/huds, and deleted Progeny from their SL and deleted SL from their computers as well. A few of them I still talk via skype from time to time, but all have said same thing. They are happy to be out of that waste of a game". Now progeny just uses SL as it's own personal feeding grounds, and doesn't care who they drag into their world, if you don't know or do know about progeny ,but aren't apart of it. You're just their food source, and they will treat you as such, Not all members of progeny are like that, but vast majority are, and they love to attack other houses. Which at one time even made it impossible for them, because there was the time all vamp blood was poison to those outside of their bloodlines. So they attacked the humans that were aligned with said houses. Now it's a free for all, on each other, and others that consider "Food",
  16. Vampires , and etc are still of interest to me, and I will always speak out against progeny now that I'm done with that scene in my life. I come here to the forums mostly now. To read and laugh at some of the other posts I've seen, not only on this topic, but others as well. I don't see the need to be in a system where well as the old saying goes "Money talks, and BS walks", but I do like to make others aware of that system , I don't come into SL often now because it's just not worth my time to stand around and watch idiots be idiots. While yes I do have a shop still in SL but only on MP and I've given up working on that. My scripts that I stored outside of SL are long gone because I gave that up as well. And RA1. If you read my words carefully it was "I LOGGED IN ALTS TO FEED ON", just because I got tired of having to go out and deal with the other players of progeny, and I did not want to drag anymore people than I already had into progeny. That was my way of trying to protect people that did not wish to partake in that type of RP. I did NOT once say my alts were apart of progeny itself. I did the same before I got the forever amulet in BL as well so I didn't annoy anyone with bite requests, plus at the time I didn't have the L$ to spend on 200 apples for a blood doll. Vampires have always been a high interest to me, way before I ever knew of SL, Vampire The Masquerade, and etc. It was just a dark side of human nature and listening to others talk about it. While in my older days in text style chats like Excite,MSN,YAHOO,AOL,well Excite had a virtual chat room with pictures customized that I got into RP online with a dice roller and other tools. This is what upsets me about Progeny is they contradict themselves and drag everyone into their game even if they are aware , or unaware of it. I don't go scanning for people using the HUDS and or FANGS cause well I'm not in SL often. When I do go in. I clear out notices, and answer offlines that appear from friends that do still pop into SL, which isn't often because they too got tired of it and found happiness outside of SL. While in Bloodlines I made my own clan so I didn't have to join up with anyone that required me to do things I did not and will not do. Progeny made it nearly impossible for the same lifestyle for me in there, so I became an outcast that just did not care about it anymore. Still to this day they demand "RESPECT" to their leaders. Sorry maybe I'm just old school here, but I firmly believe that respect is something earned and can not and will not be demanded from me ever in life. So a system that merely reeks of demands is something people need to see. While yes they claim it's the most realistic game in SL, which I won't agrue with, because it is, but it's also without it's flaws. So people , next time you decide to include my name into posts that refer to things that I DO NOT do, re-read my words and understand my viewers for SL sit in a fold named "BS " and if I do log into SL on one of my many ALTs, its to be free from the creators life I gave myself in there, and to roam freely as just a regular joe!
  17. Wow a lot of reading I just did. Not to mention the "Spell Checker" ringing loudly for most of the words. Plus I'm curious as to what in the hell is a "Lindon", I thought they were called Lindens, and for Vampire lore lovers? What books did they seriously read, Anne Rice, Twilight, Cause I have done extentsive research into Vampires, and the various forms of lore, and not once did I see anything like Progeny in it. Still amazes me that some do not get that Progeny is truly a bottomless pit of hopelessness. It's claimed to be a Role Playing aid (or better known as a Tool), but yet in same sentence has "Ecosystem" in it as well. This is why I truly gave up in there, because outside of the areas designed for RP, we did not take it out into the public open SIMs to interact. I won't say I wasn't a good vamp, and didn't feed off those that were new to SL in general, or in info HUBs, because I did, until I started logging in Alts to avoid going out and about and dealing with other "So-called" Progeny Vamps, back to the topic. I believe this game as they see it, along with SL, and yes I've seen many say and chat that SL and Progeny and everything inside is a game. But I've also visited SIMs that were strictly set up for RP only and gave their rules, information, and such, and what is and is not allowed to be done on the SIM, most of the time I just used the "Observer" Tags to watch people stand around in those SIMs not saying or doing anything. I just feel it's a sad time that a new resident can not even go freebie shopping without being hounded by these leeches, while some do not drain them dry, others will. It's how they do it. Most don't know what they are doing in SL when they first join it, and are trying to learn the way, learn how to walk, interact with others, and well yes sometimes annoy the women with IMs saying "Hey baby I want the sex", even though I still have yet to figure out what "The SEX" is. I know what Sex is in general, but not "THE Sex" as some say. So my opinion is this, if progeny is to be a RP Aid, then state that, and if you want your little ecosystem in it as well, well keep those damn players in the SIMs you have set up for it, Super andA few of them were building weapons to help Progeny grow into something more since so many were using DCS to fight , and yet when they left, there went the HUDs and weapons for that set up. Why must outsiders of progeny continue to be punished for not wanting to be apart of the RP in the first place?, Now that I've truly had enough time out of SL and Progeny , I can see it clearly for what it is. A system that will always be "BETA" because it's not good enough to be anything better, no matter how many changes come. When the so-called "Slayers" and "Lycans" come into play as well, rest of SL Community that wish to remain out of it will be harrassed and targeted by those as well. I just don't see it ever being anything more then a hopeless dead system that is and always will be consumed with the "Greed" for money!
  18. Not just the fangs, but the HUD as well, but of course now it's been made that they have to wear the fangs for the HUD to even work. It's funny too, because the fangs come out only when they are biting someone, rest of the time they are invisible to the naked eye. But even though, most will not do that because it becomes tiresome after a while. As I've stated in the past, turning off scripts doesn't work because Lachiel found a work around to enable the HUD useable in No Script areas. Which there I feel is a violation of something, not sure what, but if people turn off scripts on their lands to reduce lag, then everyone including progeny members shouldn't be able to use that HUD at all. But I keep forgetting who the creator is. He feels he is above all the TOS and Rules set forth by Linden Lab. AR them just doesn't seem to do much good. Because in all honesty, unless you are seriously threatened by them, best they'll tell you to do is "Ignore" that person. While that is all in good, but in reality, they are using their alts to join the game as well. Something he wanted to save the game from since most of Bloodlines and a few other games allowed Alts to join right away, they have managed to circumvent the rules there too as well. Create an alt, let it sit for 30+ days, then embrace it into Progeny from a friend of theirs. So nothing is as crystal clear perfect as the source would have been believed. His feeble minded narrowness is his own destruction. But I agree, with Randy, there needs to be a better way to detect those fangs and HUDs to keep others aware of a progeny vampire within range. So for now, use the tools that we're given, and it works not just in firestorm, but Singularity and CtrAlt Viewer as well. Any 3rd party viewer that has "Area Search" enabled.
  19. You may find some that will be willing to bow down and kiss butt, but rule #2 is something that just will NOT happen. You can not Force respect upon others. Respect is earned and not easy to force upon others. if you try that , you'll end with a backlash really hard and fast there. Only way people will respect the royal heirs is by learning from them, getting to know them, etc. So good luck with that.
  20. There is no seduction in progeny, to be quite honest, there really isnt much of anything in progeny cept a lot of moaning and complaining. Like I said in the past, as an ex-member who became smart and got out of the world of progeny. Nothing will ever truly change with it. For them it's a game to be played and with everyone in their wake to play it whether they know it or not. Much like the poseballs that do ask to animate your avatar, they will never ask to animate your avatar to bite you. They feel they have every right to be within 2 meters of your avatar, and the newly aquired "Follow an avi around " well thats an old script that can be dug up anywhere, just someone played around with the coding to make it more useable. The script I know of that they probably played with is the old "/15 name of avatar " that will follow them around even on non-scripted SIMs, see that is the whole end game for them. To use their HUDs where ever they are in SL and feeling that they are above the rules from others that have to abide by the "No scripts", while their SIM, well they lag worse because they don't limit how many scripts one wears. Yet they truly do complain about it. There is no pleasing anyone in Progeny unless you drop to your knees and well you get the picture there. Or dump a ton of Lindens into Lachiels pockets so he can pay yet another months of SIM rent. Even at one time they used the Open Collars to leash themselves to their prey and followed them around. This is how much of a wasted time is spent. Trying to figure out how to reach an end game here for that system. I for one am glad to be away from that life in there. While yes my avatar is still a vampire, it's the nature I designed for it. I just no longer partake into any of the vampires in SL. I live my life in solitude, and isolated, As for the Masquerade part of Progeny, well that was apart of their whole "Bill of Rights" thing they have been trying to introduce into Progeny for the last 2 years I believe. They want it to be a "Law &Order:Vampire Edition" in there. Hence my other reasoning for leaving, majority of progeny is made up mostly by those in Raven's Claw , while I have talked to, and met some nice people from there, I just feel sorry for the rest that are living their lives like disdained mindless drones always believing what the admins say. That is why I will always refer to progeny now being a "Cult", because if you don't agree with what the admins, or creators say, you're labeled an outcast. Well I welcome the title of "Outcast" because if it that is their normal, well they are truly sad people indeed. Since the opening of Progeny, you'd think by now they'd be out of "beta" stage, and yet they aren't, means someone doesn't code it properly and people find work arounds the scripts that Lachiel so painstaking claims to have created. They circumvent the game, by disassembling the HUD, and figuring out how to get around his API coding. Much like any type of coding. It can be hacked into, just plain and simple. As for the Dove device. I am not even sure it was a HUD< or just some type of device you placed on your land and it doved their huds so they couldn't feed there anymore. Either way, it would be nice to have for those that do not wish to be hounded by the progeny trolls. At least with Mars, once all the complaining stopped and etc. He had his development team create the garlic that even though it puts a users UUID into the system, it also stops the invites from happening. Lachiel will never allow that because he was greatly disappointed in HUNGER, Bloodlines, and a few others which is why he even created progeny. Realistic yes it is, annoying, Most for sure. In that world, I went from Vampire to "DEAD and BANNED", back to being a quick , their term for "Human" in their worldly annoying game. Does it bother me, Not in the last bit. I got smart and started seeing that it was making life complicated in there for me, that is my reason for leaving the game. I agree with a few here on the forums, that while yes this may be an annoying debate for some. For other's its about bringing awareness out and about to a game that as much as they have tried to keep it a secret isn't a secret anymore. so while we keep talkin bout it, maybe just a small glint of "Maybe" one day they will change it and offer something to keep our names and UUIDS out of their little game. But I wouldn't hold my breathe on that because that day will never come.
  21. But alias there is the true problem there Snow, he will not give that device out without headaches. He keeps it hidden even from his members. Had it not been sent out in a notice that he was forced to give out that device to a land owner, none of us would have known about it. The fact is at one time when the diabolics were on the land, it use to dove us from their HUD, he does not want to hinder his progeny members to just their SIM, and feels that all of SL is a playground for his minions. To go around feeding off just about anyone that comes within 2 meters of a member of his little game. He even went as far during the last war to stop members from killing each other by poisoning the bloodlines blood, so another member from another bloodline could not bite each other. Hence they started going after their humans who had no protection in the game at the time. It's truly sad that he will do anything to make SL an open playground for his members, but wants nothing to do with those that no longer want to be apart of it to get out, rather then just "Die and delete the HUD, fangs.", nor will he do anything for those that do not wish to be apart of his game at all.
  22. As a banned member of Progeny, Yes I'm banned for life from that game now all cause I spoke out on their forums against the system and they will kill and ban you instantly. Before being banned. They named Freebie Galaxy as Bad Lands, meaning there were no laws for members of progeny to go there an feed off each other, and others. Even their own HUD doesn't send a bite request to members of Progeny, it just has animations built into it to show that you are biting each other. Freaky? Yes it is, and very disturbing to say the least. But before that, a few SIM owners did go to Lachiel himself and request his dove device. Now what this device does is it will render the users of progeny with a dove on their HUD, meaning it just can't work. He does not give out this device (come to think of it, it disturbs him when he had to give it out to that SIM owner) , matter of fact only other people that had that kind of device were his higher ups, his precious diabolics as he called them. His original Diabolics have been replaced with others. 3 out of the 4 have left progeny cause of this behavior and that of one main from Ravens Claw. There is no role play what so ever with them as they've been called "NPC's" in progeny. Matter of fact they refrequent just about anywhere to feed off others, and then brag and boast about it in their special group chat. They use to hold "Who had the most blood in the blood bank" contests. Quite interesting to say the least to see them boost about fake blood. While at one time I was proud to be apart of Progeny, it was after their 2nd war that I started to see the errors in this system and the state of mind from these players. Plus a few friends were thrown under the bus so to speak because of something, I'm not entirely sure, and don't wanna know in all honesty. While I'm against any system that claims to be one thing, and is something totally different, and this is just my opinion. I feel that like Bloodlines who has the garlic necklace, Progeny should offer something to those that aren't into that type of RP, and or to the SIM owners letting them judge for themselves about using a device to turn off the HUDs, cause sadly Lachiel made it to where the HUD will work in no-script zones. So even if SIM owners turn off Scripts, those annoying HUDs still work clearly. Now mind you though, most of the active progeny members are also in Bloodlines, Hunger, and a few others. So yeah they love to grief others. I have often referred to them as a "Secret Cult" more so then a society because of how they do act out in public. Around other members of Progeny it's freely discussed, but now since their NPC's know all about progeny, it makes them upset that their secret is out and that this game is being discussed by those ex members, and their non playable characters. or as they call them "Blood bags" , or whatever blood name they come up with. Before it's said, I don't have an axe to grind, and I personally don't care about the maker of the game, or his idle threats. We have a right to choose what type of game we all want to play, while yes in the past I was one of those that fed off the NPC's, but I did it with RP with another person, and it was in a private chat channel on a public SIM. I wanted to help change and give progeny a better name,but it doesn't happen because some will not let it happen and if they grab the attention of Lachiel, he'll bend whatever rule he can to make it happen. I just feel as an ex-member of Progeny that it shouldn't be kept so in closet , and that if you don't want to play, have the option to opt out, or if you did play, still have that option to opt out.
  23. I had thought of staying, creating a clan of my own, and even started but when my RL became chaotic, and I pulled away from SL for a good 4 months, upon my return things had changed, people had changed, and I was ignored. Then the war broke out with the line Bastion and I left that line to avoid the conflict. My progeny had left , leaving me from 4 to 1, and I was no longer interested in helping the game grow when all we kept hearing was "Soon" on everything. when the war broke out, so did a fight between us (my liege and good friend) because I no longer had a desire to be apart of a game. Then was asked to spy on other friends, etc. It became to much and I just had enough of it. Now mind you, I got myself banned, but also my RL/SL Partner is banned from the system as well. So that goes to show you the mentality of the creator of it. Not that he minded, he didnt like SL, the mesh parts freaked him out. I'm still partnered to my RL in SL, but his name is just storage account now. No not all are asses, but that doesn't change the fact the creator is one though. He can not, and will not ask for help with coding, and well, when you tell people it's an aid, you get yelled at. I'm sorry but I always thought if that HUD was meant to be an aid, then why a secrets, why do they have councils, clans, meetings on a weekly basis, etc. For something that was suppose to be used to aid in role-play, and there is none, they claim they are trying, but it's sad really. Course now with the new look of the website and etc. It's truly becoming a secret society, much like the "Cults" that are still secret to this day an age. I just have to laugh, and wonder, "How much is a game worth?, and Do you have to sell your soul to truly enjoy it without the constant drama that they so love to bring into the game?".
  24. There use to be a HUD we had, not sure what it is now, or if it even exists, it use to detect others within 2 meters of your avatar. They used it during the last war they had in there. though not being involved anymore. It's hard to say, and to your reply Snow. It was a bunch of things that made me stop logging into SL so much. I found out RL takes 1st, and sadly even though SL does still continue to grow. Some like me would rather spend that time in RL, and or playing a video game like Star Wars The Old Republic. Plus for me who doesn't really delete true friends off my list. It grew to be just that. I've had names there that haven't logged in years. They just deleted the exe, and gave up on second life, but yet I kept them for that just incase. So now for some of the friends I've made there. I've added them to Facebook, so that we could chat, or skype, but rarely do I even use those. Unless I'm making up stories about my star war characters. Giving them a backstory and a life. I don't even know if I'm sim banned from the PV Sim, wouldn't honestly break my heart. Isn't the first one, and sure as hell wouldn't be the last sim I've been banned from. In the past I was banned from all RC Lands. Which I find funny because before my departure there, I was welcomed into the RC Clan under Parth, but just went blah, and went off on their website and got myself banned, Anyone that still remained in that game was deleted off my friends list. I just grew tired of the constant headaches, and complaining. For years everyone told me there was suppose to be slayers, lycans, etc and nothing. We kept getting told "Soon", well soon didn't come fast enough for some of my friends, and they just deleted the entire thing, left SL and gave up. For others, well they still hide in the game under alts, and they can't say they don't. That was the true reason that game was designed to stop all the alts from joining. But there is never a fool proof way to stop that unless you MAC IP Ban, then what good would it do honestly? I don't miss much in SL, it really never changes, info hubs are the frequent feeding grounds for those in the game. Pickin on noobs use to be fun, but grew bored with it. I use to DJ, gave up because I just couldn't stand the managers, owners, etc. Owning my shop was just a pipe dream that I kept going to keep my currency in SL so I didn't have to use much RL Money in there. SL was just a means of an escape for me from RL, and now I don't have too. Like I said before, I still venture into SL, just not on a daily basis, I've got to much going on in star wars to care what SL cliche is going on. Friends that I've had were partnered, are now partnered to someone new, it's like a dying old soap opera in there. Star wars isn't much better, but at least I keep chat turned off, play my class story missions, and go about my own way in there. I do try to help out, but that's rare now a days. I keep SL now mostly so I can build when I get the desire too, but I don't really have the desire. All those lindens wasted on an avatar that is now dusty. LOL.
  25. It's all about the money. This system when started was suppose to be always free, well I've left that system, as well as SL for the most part. I only stay now because I have a shop, and do like to build from time to time. It's all changed since the original poster started this topic. I've lost a great many friends due to this game system. It's become a solid money pit for the SIM, and etc. The newly developement team is a true waste. They have only moved up in the system due to the amount of money they have donated and etc. So if people would be smart, (which some aren't), they would forget progeny exists, that game will always be about money like so many other things in SL. Yes I'm still in Bloodlines, but don't bother with it. Trust me when I say, you'll lose friends that claim they'll never do anything to hurt you. For the most part I lived my vampire life in there as an outcast even in a family, then bashed them on their own forums, and website to get kicked out for good. It felt great after two years of constant nagging drama. Nothing improves unless you pay for it. So upon being banned from them for good. I've deleted the LMs, the HUD, fangs, and etc. Progeny is truly a trap and a waste of time. For a few months the creator couldn't even keep the website up and running. It was being hacked over and over again. Probably some disgrunted ex friend of the source. Who knows, and who really cares. I've reconnected with those that have left progeny, and we talk from time to time but that's that. As far as I'm concerned progeny is the worse system ever created, and I've been reported from the forums for flaming, funny. Only thing I've ever flamed was Progeny, and I'll probably be reported again which to me is no biggie, I'll just cancel my subscription to SL, and forget it's existence. I spend my days now playing Star Wars:The Old Republic. Where there even the children mentality is stronger because it's just the internet. People say and do stupid things to make themselves feel better.
