[2010/01/17 18:10] Blue Myanamotu turns off her AO and radar to help minimize lag.
[2010/01/17 18:10] Cursa Charisma: What we will do is to ask several of our participants to give short (5 minute) talks on their views of where RP in SL is, and is headed, in this new year

[2010/01/17 18:11] DeLynne Marksman accepted your inventory offer.
[2010/01/17 18:11] Zac Wilcke: If nobody else wants to, sure
[2010/01/17 18:11] Cursa Charisma: If you'd like to tell us the rp you're doing and your main interests, then your thoughts, that would be great.
[2010/01/17 18:11] Zac Wilcke: Well, I run a super mario bros. RP
[2010/01/17 18:12] Finnius Maximus: good morrow
[2010/01/17 18:12] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Finnius
[2010/01/17 18:12] Zac Wilcke: There have been several other video game RP areas, but i had never seen one for mario!!

[2010/01/17 18:13] Zac Wilcke: but i digress
[2010/01/17 18:13] Finnius Maximus: do you jump on poor, unsuspecting mushrooms?
[2010/01/17 18:13] Zac Wilcke: I think SL still has the capability for advanced roleplay
[2010/01/17 18:13] Blue Myanamotu covers her mouth with the sleeve of her kimono to stifle a giggle.
[2010/01/17 18:13] Vimala Dasmijn: I had a pet turtle once
[2010/01/17 18:14] Vimala Dasmijn: he was killed by people like you
[2010/01/17 18:14] Finnius Maximus: please dont tell me you jumped on it

[2010/01/17 18:14] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Allen
[2010/01/17 18:14] Zac Wilcke: Can SL still be a viable RP platform??
[2010/01/17 18:14] Medea Warwillow: Can I ask you a question Zac?
[2010/01/17 18:14] Zac Wilcke: Yes
[2010/01/17 18:14] Finnius Maximus: i like to RP that i'm happy sometimes
[2010/01/17 18:14] Medea Warwillow: Does your roleplay have a particular objective?
[2010/01/17 18:15] Vimala Dasmijn: I like to RP that I'm in a first world country and have sanitary water
[2010/01/17 18:15] Zac Wilcke: To save princess "toadstool" peach from the hands of the evil bowser
[2010/01/17 18:15] Finnius Maximus: but what if she's in another castle?
[2010/01/17 18:15] Medea Warwillow: So is that same scenario played out continuously? or over and over again?
[2010/01/17 18:15] Joelle Tardis looks at Allen and grins
[2010/01/17 18:16] Zac Wilcke: Sometimes, as finnius said, the princess is in another castle
[2010/01/17 18:16] Zac Wilcke: so we must find another castle and storm it
[2010/01/17 18:16] Medea Warwillow: Ah. Only one princess?
[2010/01/17 18:16] Vimala Dasmijn: well if you know the canon of Super Mario
[2010/01/17 18:16] Finnius Maximus: sounds fairly indepth as far as SL RPs go
[2010/01/17 18:16] Zac Wilcke: Yes, buit we alternate who gets to be the princess
[2010/01/17 18:16] Blue Myanamotu: don't storm the princess and leave the castle? *raises an eyebrow*
[2010/01/17 18:16] Blue Myanamotu: >.>
[2010/01/17 18:16] Vimala Dasmijn: You'd know that there are TWO princesses, daisy and peach
[2010/01/17 18:16] Medea Warwillow: Ahhh oka.
[2010/01/17 18:17] Zac Wilcke: No, this isn't a gorean rp, Blue
[2010/01/17 18:17] Vimala Dasmijn: but daisy is reserved only for bi-annual tennis matches
[2010/01/17 18:17] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Stahi
[2010/01/17 18:17] Blue Myanamotu: Ooh. *rubs back of head* I was thinking more samurai...n' stuff. >.>
[2010/01/17 18:17] Dongs Avon: most of the time i'm the princess
[2010/01/17 18:17] Dongs Avon: it's a role i was born to play
[2010/01/17 18:17] Vimala Dasmijn: There are no samurais in the Muchroom Kingdom, Blue.
[2010/01/17 18:18] Ganon Verstandig: There are ninja, though.
[2010/01/17 18:18] Vimala Dasmijn: I like to be Bowser, it makes me feel important
[2010/01/17 18:18] Cursa Charisma: OK, I think we have an idea of where Zac sees RP going in 2010
[2010/01/17 18:18] Sylauxe Zhao: lol
[2010/01/17 18:18] Medea Warwillow: Is there a grand storyline above each of the "saving of the princess" missions?
[2010/01/17 18:18] Medea Warwillow: Not necessarily grand, but ongoing?
[2010/01/17 18:18] Finnius Maximus: i like villainous roles, so i could see myself as a goomba, or maybe a phanto!
[2010/01/17 18:18] Zac Wilcke: The princess is always getting captured, we don't have time for anything else
[2010/01/17 18:18] Vimala Dasmijn: I think you would be best as a lakitu, Finnius
[2010/01/17 18:19] Operating Thetan: Phantos have freaked me out ever since I was a kid
[2010/01/17 18:19] Ganon Verstandig: Blue would be Wendy O. Koopa. :V
[2010/01/17 18:19] Blue Myanamotu: the ninja execute, sabotage and spy?
[2010/01/17 18:19] Ganon Verstandig: Er, no.
[2010/01/17 18:19] Ganon Verstandig: They jump in place and are star-shaped.
[2010/01/17 18:19] Operating Thetan: I'd get the key and then aaaaahhhh
[2010/01/17 18:19] Sylauxe Zhao: lol
[2010/01/17 18:19] Dongs Avon: phantos are really nice
[2010/01/17 18:19] Ganon Verstandig: In some Mario games you can jump on their heads and pick them up and throw them at other enemies.
[2010/01/17 18:19] Vimala Dasmijn: Sheesh Blue, don't you know anything about ninjas?
[2010/01/17 18:19] Blue Myanamotu rubs back of head. I guess, no katana and sharp pointy weapons and things that make you go ouchie either.... >.>
[2010/01/17 18:19] Dongs Avon: there was a guy roleplaying with me as one it was really nice
[2010/01/17 18:19] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Startspy
[2010/01/17 18:20] Blue Myanamotu: >.> *lies* No. Nothing. nothing at all about ninjas....
[2010/01/17 18:20] Medea Warwillow: Thats interesting Zac. Definately different than any rp I've done.
[2010/01/17 18:20] Ganon Verstandig: Though there are Samurai in uh...
[2010/01/17 18:20] Ganon Verstandig: Super Paper Mario?

[2010/01/17 18:22] CoolLuke Sands: The biggest challenge is cooperation
[2010/01/17 18:22] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 18:22] Finnius Maximus: you're roleplaying space pirates
[2010/01/17 18:22] Ganon Verstandig: I hear that.
[2010/01/17 18:22] Allen Kerensky: ... massive understatement
[2010/01/17 18:22] Finnius Maximus: they rarely cooperate
[2010/01/17 18:22] Dain Bellic: Maybe a better form of a com , that works on every SIM on the grid.
[2010/01/17 18:22] Dain Bellic: We have that tech.
[2010/01/17 18:22] CoolLuke Sands: you will have sim admins taht will go along with the genreal flow of the RP and then others who want a nazi like control
[2010/01/17 18:22] Vimala Dasmijn: We don't have cooperation problems with Mario
[2010/01/17 18:23] CoolLuke Sands: and not just pirates, but smugglers, colonists, Alliance Military, politicians, companions, etc
[2010/01/17 18:23] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 18:23] Heinrich Soup: Can we refrain from saying things like nazi? My grandfather was killed in a concentration camp when he fell off a guard tower
[2010/01/17 18:23] Dain Bellic: It sounds to me all about the system admins for removing the bad from that.
[2010/01/17 18:23] Norm Bombastic: I was the princess once
[2010/01/17 18:23] Sylauxe Zhao: Yes, but to be fair this mario rp sounds a bit less complicated, not that there's anything wrong with that
[2010/01/17 18:23] Norm Bombastic: that round sucked
[2010/01/17 18:23] Dain Bellic: Prune them up
[2010/01/17 18:23] Vimala Dasmijn: Maybe your RP is too complicated
[2010/01/17 18:23] Frisbee Zapedzki: im also interested inhearing more about the mario rp
[2010/01/17 18:24] Dain Bellic: Vimala, it's all different based on theme
[2010/01/17 18:24] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Zoey
[2010/01/17 18:24] Dain Bellic: Mario is as it is
[2010/01/17 18:24] Heinrich Soup cuddles up to Norms fuzzy black chest
[2010/01/17 18:24] Draxamus Eros: I just watched a six-part documentary on nazis the other day!
[2010/01/17 18:24] Blue Myanamotu wonders why pirates and cooperate are in the same context. >.>
[2010/01/17 18:24] Vimala Dasmijn: Why do you need guns when you can jump on your enemies?
[2010/01/17 18:24] Sylauxe Zhao: that's...good to hear drax
[2010/01/17 18:24] Norm Bombastic: get dis niggas hand off my dick
[2010/01/17 18:24] Baroun Tardis: because bullets go farther than I can jump
[2010/01/17 18:24] Dain Bellic: Okayy
[2010/01/17 18:24] Allen Kerensky: Mario used a hammer in Donkey Kong
[2010/01/17 18:24] Cursa Charisma: Luke, can you tell us what your plans are for the year?
[2010/01/17 18:24] Allen Kerensky: or is that too old school for the crowd?
[2010/01/17 18:24] Frisbee Zapedzki: dont forget red, green, and blue shells
[2010/01/17 18:24] Ganon Verstandig: Well, you know, Sonic said the same thing, but then they gave Tails a mechsuit...
[2010/01/17 18:24] Vimala Dasmijn: you can use the tanuki outfit
[2010/01/17 18:24] CoolLuke Sands: Well my advice is that if you are going to work with a group to make an RP happen you need base rules, respect, and I highly recommend allowing each sim to control the RP that happens in their sim
[2010/01/17 18:24] Draxamus Eros: I'm roleplaying a mario 64 penguin right now!
[2010/01/17 18:25] Heinrich Soup: Would objects from Mario Kart be allowed in Mario Rp?
[2010/01/17 18:25] Frisbee Zapedzki: yeah and when they gave tails the mechsuit they jumped the shark again
[2010/01/17 18:25] Norm Bombastic: duck hugs 4ever
[2010/01/17 18:25] Heinrich Soup: It's not exactly cannon
[2010/01/17 18:25] Vimala Dasmijn: only on casual fridays, I think
[2010/01/17 18:25] CoolLuke Sands: sim admins hate being told what to do and kindly requesting on their assistance or thoughts or input to make an rp event happen works much better
[2010/01/17 18:25] Reiko Soyinka: <---thinks that the Mario roleplay could stop about now so that we could hear other opinions.
[2010/01/17 18:25] Sylauxe Zhao: some of this conversation seems to have gone off topic a bit, lol
[2010/01/17 18:25] Cursa Charisma: This is Luke's time, yes
[2010/01/17 18:25] Draxamus Eros: SAVE MY BABY
[2010/01/17 18:25] Stahi Columbia: You mean "canon", Heinrich
[2010/01/17 18:25] Frisbee Zapedzki: now hold on
[2010/01/17 18:25] Finnius Maximus knows how to emote.
[2010/01/17 18:25] Heinrich Soup: NO I MEAN CANNON
[2010/01/17 18:25] Frisbee Zapedzki: we should stay on the subject of hte mario RP
[2010/01/17 18:25] CoolLuke Sands: Im all are obviously not done dicussing the Mario RP....Please finish so we can continue
[2010/01/17 18:25] Joelle Tardis sighs
[2010/01/17 18:25] Zeno Baxton accepted your inventory offer.
[2010/01/17 18:26] Norm Bombastic: nick cannon heh
[2010/01/17 18:26] Norm Bombastic: heh
[2010/01/17 18:26] Cursa Charisma: Frisbee, if you'd like, we can set aside a Sunday for discussion specifically of Mario RP in SL
[2010/01/17 18:26] Joelle Tardis looks at Cursa
[2010/01/17 18:26] Sylauxe Zhao: please let luke speak his turn
[2010/01/17 18:26] Finnius Maximus: who's nick cannon?
[2010/01/17 18:26] Vimala Dasmijn: i didn't like his show that much
[2010/01/17 18:26] Cursa Charisma: Would you like to give a talk?
[2010/01/17 18:26] Frisbee Zapedzki: that would be lovely!
[2010/01/17 18:26] You decline Kaiya Islands - THE WILD COAST NATURIST RESORT from A group member named Padraig Ashbourne.
[2010/01/17 18:26] Frisbee Zapedzki: i have just a few more questions
[2010/01/17 18:26] HTCS Meter V1.01: Baroun Tardis signs: [Mario RP? Mario ? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot]
[2010/01/17 18:26] Draxamus Eros: Well when I'm mario RPing, I have to really get into my role
[2010/01/17 18:26] Frisbee Zapedzki: for you gentlemen speaking about the Mario RP
[2010/01/17 18:26] Blue Myanamotu: <~~~ totally lost and confused nao...
[2010/01/17 18:27] Frisbee Zapedzki: im curious as to know if careerer paths are integrated into your systems
[2010/01/17 18:27] Vimala Dasmijn: How do you build up to that point?
[2010/01/17 18:27] Ganon Verstandig: Didn't we have a scheduled speaker who intended to discuss the problems of sim politics on both IC and OOC levels?
[2010/01/17 18:27] Cursa Charisma: Frisbee, you're asking Luke?
[2010/01/17 18:27] Quentin Foulsbane: yep, I've lost track of everything Luke was saying cause of th other chatter, sorry
[2010/01/17 18:27] Frisbee Zapedzki: Plumber?
[2010/01/17 18:27] HTCS Meter V1.01: From Baroun Tardis:ooc: yeah, Mario RP...
[2010/01/17 18:27] Sylauxe Zhao: I think we should just reset the conversation and let Luke talk about his firefry group
[2010/01/17 18:27] Frisbee Zapedzki: Evil minion?
[2010/01/17 18:28] CoolLuke Sands: I am waiting for the MARIO RP talk to finish. They appear to have more they wanted to say
[2010/01/17 18:28] Draxamus Eros: Anyway a problem we always have in our mario RPs is everyone always wants to be mario
[2010/01/17 18:28] Ganon Verstandig: Everyone else, please shut the hell up and stop upstaging poor Luke.
[2010/01/17 18:28] Draxamus Eros: THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE MARIO
[2010/01/17 18:28] Draxamus Eros: WE NEED MORE GOOMBAS
[2010/01/17 18:28] Ganon Verstandig: Alright, it's his turn.
[2010/01/17 18:28] Sylauxe Zhao: yes, this is berry rude
[2010/01/17 18:28] Frisbee Zapedzki: mario rp have many jobes
[2010/01/17 18:28] Blue Myanamotu: Please go ahead Luke.
[2010/01/17 18:28] Cursa Charisma: After the individual presentations, we will have time for open discussion, and suggestions for future events
[2010/01/17 18:28] Finnius Maximus: do you roleplay individuals characters from the show, or all new people with their own ideosyncracies?
[2010/01/17 18:28] Norm Bombastic: why's mario gotta stay white
[2010/01/17 18:28] Draxamus Eros: MORE GOOMBAS
[2010/01/17 18:28] Norm Bombastic: I mean come on
[2010/01/17 18:28] Joelle Tardis starts nodding off since she out hrew Mario when she out grew nintendo 64
[2010/01/17 18:28] Heinrich Soup: White is obviously the best for a plumber
[2010/01/17 18:28] Ganon Verstandig: All for muting Drax?
[2010/01/17 18:28] Vimala Dasmijn: because he's italian
[2010/01/17 18:28] Medea Warwillow: Sorry guys, lets keep the chatter contained to the topic at hand...after those who wish to speak have finished there is no time limit on the discussions afterwards.
[2010/01/17 18:28] Stahi Columbia: This has become too silly.
[2010/01/17 18:28] Frisbee Zapedzki: i think the selection of a mario RP charecter
[2010/01/17 18:28] Frisbee Zapedzki: should reflect ones own personality
[2010/01/17 18:28] Ganon Verstandig facepalms...
[2010/01/17 18:29] Cursa Charisma: Feel free to use Mute at your discretion, everyone
[2010/01/17 18:29] Draxamus Eros: Hey Ganon this is mario RP not Zelda RP
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: perhaps one who finds himself inside of a shell
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: so to speak
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: or
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: one who is constatly flattened
[2010/01/17 18:29] Quentin Foulsbane: yeah, was just doing that. Thanks Cursa
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: could be some sort of goomba
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: perhaps, koopa
[2010/01/17 18:29] Finnius Maximus: i underatand the feeling frisbee
[2010/01/17 18:29] Norm Bombastic: hey now zelda was an ageplayer in disguise
[2010/01/17 18:29] CoolLuke Sands: To Finnius.... Basically whatever character profession you wish to RP you can. We are very easy in letting people bring in what they want....within reason of course
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: i remember when i was a kid
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: and id pull the flag down
[2010/01/17 18:29] Finnius Maximus: but can i be wash?
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: i would get a feel of jubulation
[2010/01/17 18:29] CoolLuke Sands: some DD RP Sims are strict canon and others are loose on it
[2010/01/17 18:29] Finnius Maximus: that all i want
[2010/01/17 18:29] Frisbee Zapedzki: i think everyone in second life should pull down the flag
[2010/01/17 18:29] Reiko Soyinka: Why do I feel like we are being griefed.
[2010/01/17 18:30] Blue Myanamotu: CoolLuke, how do you introduce new people into RP? I find that with new people, it can be rather an intimidating experience.
[2010/01/17 18:30] Draxamus Eros: Ocarina of Time actually had some ageplay stuff going on
[2010/01/17 18:30] Norm Bombastic: why do I ask questions I already know the answer to?
[2010/01/17 18:30] Heinrich Soup: What are you feelings on the cast of mario RPs all being white? There's never any colored participants and I find that a bit disturbing
[2010/01/17 18:30] Draxamus Eros: What was that bitch's name, Saria
[2010/01/17 18:30] Sylauxe Zhao: wait...WHAT?!
[2010/01/17 18:30] Draxamus Eros: SHE NEVER AGED
[2010/01/17 18:30] CoolLuke Sands: 'SOME FF RP SIMS I meant to say
[2010/01/17 18:30] Ganon Verstandig: Because we honestly kind of are? But now that they're muted... we can get on with things.
[2010/01/17 18:30] Draxamus Eros: BUT OBVIOUSLY STILL WANTED YOU
[2010/01/17 18:30] Vimala Dasmijn: goombas are darker skinned
[2010/01/17 18:30] Frisbee Zapedzki: there is a variation in species
[2010/01/17 18:30] Finnius Maximus: toad was of color. i believe he was middle-eastern
[2010/01/17 18:30] Frisbee Zapedzki: ahem
[2010/01/17 18:30] Frisbee Zapedzki: could chose a more
[2010/01/17 18:30] Heinrich Soup: Yes but goombas are mindless slaves who get stomped on by the very white mario
[2010/01/17 18:30] Frisbee Zapedzki: "colored"
[2010/01/17 18:30] Frisbee Zapedzki: charecter
[2010/01/17 18:30] Norm Bombastic: if I was a goomba i'd emancipate ourselves because wtf bowser is a jerk i hate him okk
[2010/01/17 18:31] Joelle Tardis: my mute finger is getting tired
[2010/01/17 18:31] Frisbee Zapedzki: i think the implimentation of more color in Mario RPs is important
[2010/01/17 18:31] Draxamus Eros: Goombas are underappreciated
[2010/01/17 18:31] Draxamus Eros: UNSUNG HEROES
[2010/01/17 18:31] Sylauxe Zhao: I know, lol, wth is with all the mario talk?
[2010/01/17 18:31] Finnius Maximus: so why did you decide on firefly? why not dollhouse?
[2010/01/17 18:31] Frisbee Zapedzki: diversity is something in SL that isnt talked about enough
[2010/01/17 18:31] Vimala Dasmijn: They really are an important role
[2010/01/17 18:31] Heinrich Soup: We should create a new RP that revolves around the goombas life
[2010/01/17 18:31] HTCS Meter V1.01: From Baroun Tardis:ooc: muting Drax? or Frisbee or both?
[2010/01/17 18:31] CoolLuke Sands: To Blue..... we are fairly loose and improv in our RP storylines. There are occasionaly big RP events but you would be surprised the RP that arises from a simple bar night or statre dinner
[2010/01/17 18:31] CoolLuke Sands: state dinner
[2010/01/17 18:31] Frisbee Zapedzki: perhaps if you guys opened your mind a bit more to the idea of a Mario RP
[2010/01/17 18:31] Medea Warwillow interrupts. Is there anymore pertinent questions regarding roleplay trending in Mario or Firefly/Serenity?
[2010/01/17 18:31] Norm Bombastic: WE SHALL OVERCOME
[2010/01/17 18:31] Heinrich Soup: Shut up dakie
[2010/01/17 18:31] Heinrich Soup: darkie*
[2010/01/17 18:32] Vimala Dasmijn: no one cares about goombas
[2010/01/17 18:32] Sylauxe Zhao: HEY!
[2010/01/17 18:32] Norm Bombastic: nigga get yo hand off my dick
[2010/01/17 18:32] Vimala Dasmijn: we need to change that
[2010/01/17 18:32] Khanah Aya accepted your inventory offer.
[2010/01/17 18:32] Sylauxe Zhao: That is berry rude!
[2010/01/17 18:32] Cursa Charisma: Heinrich, and Norm, you are violating community standards
[2010/01/17 18:32] Sylauxe Zhao: *very, sorry
[2010/01/17 18:32] Finnius Maximus: finally, i got my head bad
[2010/01/17 18:32] Cursa Charisma: Please leave
[2010/01/17 18:32] Frisbee Zapedzki: you all really should open your minds to mario rp
[2010/01/17 18:32] Ganon Verstandig: There are no pertinent questions about the Mario thing, they're just deliberately upstaging Luke.
[2010/01/17 18:32] CoolLuke Sands: NORM!!! I am very offended by that kind of talk
[2010/01/17 18:32] Norm Bombastic: I'll take Heinrich outside and slap his momma
[2010/01/17 18:32] Frisbee Zapedzki: before you start smashign the mute button
[2010/01/17 18:32] Draxamus Eros: Yeah get out
[2010/01/17 18:32] Sylauxe Zhao: yeah, we don't need that potty talk
[2010/01/17 18:32] Vimala Dasmijn: haters
[2010/01/17 18:32] Vimala Dasmijn: they hate italians
[2010/01/17 18:32] Vimala Dasmijn: that's it isn't it
[2010/01/17 18:32] Frisbee Zapedzki: ill have to pray for the ignorance of each and every one of you tonight
[2010/01/17 18:32] MistressBrazen Bondar accepted your inventory offer.
[2010/01/17 18:32] Joelle Tardis: My suggestion is the Ban button
[2010/01/17 18:32] Finnius Maximus: wow
[2010/01/17 18:32] Vimala Dasmijn: you hate italians
[2010/01/17 18:32] Finnius Maximus: i get it
[2010/01/17 18:33] Vimala Dasmijn: that's disgusting
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: god is forgiving
[2010/01/17 18:33] Finnius Maximus: this is a fantastic RP session of the house of parliament
[2010/01/17 18:33] CoolLuke Sands: If there are no more questions about FF RP I am done
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: what we speak of is the new rising of rp
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: Mario RP
[2010/01/17 18:33] Blue Myanamotu: So is Firefly an Immersion sim, or a mix of both? It's something I've wondered because in Nippon, it is difficult to set the tone. People get intimidated by roleplay, and in immersion, at least in Nippon, it scares people off.
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: Mario RP will spring up everywhere
[2010/01/17 18:33] Norm Bombastic: I rule in favor of the majority that mario rp should be replaced with garfield rp
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: Well Blue
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: back to the topic of Mairo RP...
[2010/01/17 18:33] Vimala Dasmijn: All our voices will cry in unison
[2010/01/17 18:33] Ganon Verstandig nods at Luke. "Yeah, big planned RPs are nice and all, but what we're trying to do in Nippon is also to encourage people to RP at places like the noodle house.
[2010/01/17 18:33] Vimala Dasmijn: MAMA MIA
[2010/01/17 18:33] Vimala Dasmijn: they'll shout
[2010/01/17 18:33] Draxamus Eros: WHERE'S MY PURSE
[2010/01/17 18:33] Frisbee Zapedzki: there is no need to be intimidated by mario RP
[2010/01/17 18:33] Joelle Tardis: Cool it sounds to me like the FF sims need to talk to Baroun and Allen about the HTCS Meter
[2010/01/17 18:34] Frisbee Zapedzki: its something even kids can get into
[2010/01/17 18:34] Frisbee Zapedzki: mario is familiar with all ages
[2010/01/17 18:34] Frisbee Zapedzki: so anyone can hop in and enjoy
[2010/01/17 18:34] Finnius Maximus: you have a noodle house?
[2010/01/17 18:34] Cursa Charisma: Remember, everyone, you can mute at your discretion
[2010/01/17 18:34] Finnius Maximus: awesome!
[2010/01/17 18:34] Joelle Tardis: It would adress some of the issues you mentioned
[2010/01/17 18:34] CoolLuke Sands: To Blue.... it depends on the FF Sim you are in. Again, each sim runs their own style of RP and intensity so its an explore and find the one that best suits you
[2010/01/17 18:34] Ganon Verstandig laughs, "Like the leftmost quarter of my screen is gray.
[2010/01/17 18:34] Medea Warwillow: Frisbee, we are going to move on and let Joelle have the floor, as soon as Luke is through.
[2010/01/17 18:34] Frisbee Zapedzki: Please, medea
[2010/01/17 18:34] Frisbee Zapedzki: let me finish
[2010/01/17 18:34] Frisbee Zapedzki: Think of the possibillities:
[2010/01/17 18:34] Vimala Dasmijn: this is very important to us
[2010/01/17 18:35] CoolLuke Sands: I am done.
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: For the small fee of 10,000L
[2010/01/17 18:35] Finnius Maximus: :(
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: i can install a full mario rp setup
[2010/01/17 18:35] Finnius Maximus: but i wanted to know more
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: for anyone here
[2010/01/17 18:35] Stahi Columbia: A wop running around and jumping on random creatures isn't a very fun RP option. Firefly, or anything Sci-Fi is way more interesting.
[2010/01/17 18:35] Norm Bombastic: frisbee it turns out that youre not luigi
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: Now
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: Many of you are probably thinking
[2010/01/17 18:35] Medea Warwillow: I know...but we have a time limit for each speaker, and when each have finished the floor will open for discussion
[2010/01/17 18:35] Medea Warwillow: You can talk about Mario as much as you like then.
[2010/01/17 18:35] Keepin' It Virtual: Dongs Avon, the line between role-play and offline relationships is one of the dilemmas of Second Life
[2010/01/17 18:35] Heinrich Soup: I think Mario is pretty racist. He's a pretty steriotypical image of an Italian
[2010/01/17 18:35] CoolLuke Sands: Thank you for having me tonight. I hope you have a good evening all.
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: Please medea this is important
[2010/01/17 18:35] Medea Warwillow: Joelle, you wished to speak?
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: I need the floor
[2010/01/17 18:35] Heinrich Soup: We should replace him with a more white, American character
[2010/01/17 18:35] Frisbee Zapedzki: I'm helping break RP ground
[2010/01/17 18:36] Joelle Tardis: ?me grins
[2010/01/17 18:36] Frisbee Zapedzki: IN seocnd life

[2010/01/17 18:36] Draxamus Eros: We should have black mario, blasting goombas away with his AK
[2010/01/17 18:36] Joelle Tardis: I own a couple of RP sims One Sci-fi and one Gorean as well as admin on a couple of others
[2010/01/17 18:36] Tabitha Diesel: if you'll excuse me I have another engagement to attend

[2010/01/17 18:37] Finnius Maximus: what sort of scifi?
[2010/01/17 18:37] Tabitha Diesel waves and poofs
[2010/01/17 18:37] Cursa Charisma: Thanks, Joelle, please go on
[2010/01/17 18:37] HTCS Meter V1.01: From Baroun Tardis:ooc: wow, amazing how much easier this works when you mute
[2010/01/17 18:37] Stahi Columbia: I've got a question.. Is there anyplace to engage in roleplay dealing with the Re-Imagined Battlestar Galactica series?
[2010/01/17 18:37] Cursa Charisma: See you, Tabby
[2010/01/17 18:37] Cursa Charisma: Yes, Stahi
[2010/01/17 18:37] Cursa Charisma: Several
[2010/01/17 18:37] Cursa Charisma: Let's discuss that later
[2010/01/17 18:37] Stahi Columbia: Oh cool.
[2010/01/17 18:37] Joelle Tardis: And I see more intelligent RP SIms opening everyday
[2010/01/17 18:37] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 18:38] Stahi Columbia: Far too many Star Trek RPs around nowadays. Need something fresh.
[2010/01/17 18:38] Joelle Tardis: Interactive RP Is growing
[2010/01/17 18:38] Stahi Columbia: Stargate works too.
[2010/01/17 18:38] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, Brazen
[2010/01/17 18:38] Joelle Tardis: Many More Sims are Interacting as Well
[2010/01/17 18:38] Sylauxe Zhao: so, who's turn to talk is it now?
[2010/01/17 18:38] MistressBrazen Bondar: thanks
[2010/01/17 18:38] Cursa Charisma: Joelle's, Sy
[2010/01/17 18:38] Finnius Maximus: stargate would tie in marvelously with the inset game mechanics of second life
[2010/01/17 18:38] Reiko Soyinka: Question.
[2010/01/17 18:38] Baroun Tardis points to Joelle -> she has the floor
[2010/01/17 18:38] Sylauxe Zhao: okey-doke :)
[2010/01/17 18:38] Joelle Tardis sighs
[2010/01/17 18:38] Avatar ejected.
[2010/01/17 18:39] Blue Myanamotu: Please go ahead Joelle. ^.^
[2010/01/17 18:39] Joelle Tardis: Meters Like the HTCS is taking Interactive RP to whole New Levels
[2010/01/17 18:39] Zac Wilcke: im a big fan of HTCS
[2010/01/17 18:39] Baroun Tardis waves to Zac
[2010/01/17 18:40] Ganon Verstandig has never heard of it, but is intrigued. o.o
[2010/01/17 18:40] Joelle Tardis: Places like the Nexus are opening up Communication between Sim Owners and Admins and I see this affecting RP in a positive way
[2010/01/17 18:40] Blue Myanamotu: Please, could you tell us about HTCS?
[2010/01/17 18:40] Reiko Soyinka: later, Blue.
[2010/01/17 18:40] Baroun Tardis: After the meeting, i'd be glad to
[2010/01/17 18:40] Joelle Tardis: HTCS is a Interactive RP Meter
[2010/01/17 18:40] Cursa Charisma: Yes
[2010/01/17 18:40] Blue Myanamotu: Alright. ^.^
[2010/01/17 18:41] Joelle Tardis: and Baroun and Allen are both very good at answering questions about it after the meeting
[2010/01/17 18:41] Joelle Tardis: ?me grins
[2010/01/17 18:41] Baroun Tardis nods to Allen
[2010/01/17 18:41] Joelle Tardis laughs
[2010/01/17 18:41] Stahi Columbia: Got quiet.
[2010/01/17 18:42] Ganon Verstandig: We're listening to Joelle. :P
[2010/01/17 18:42] Joelle Tardis: And really that is my point, I see Positive things happening in the Rp communities that have a player base with IQs over that of the average 5 YO
[2010/01/17 18:42] Cursa Charisma: Yes, Joelle, if you could tell us a bit about your sims
[2010/01/17 18:42] Allen Kerensky: hey! I am 5y.o. in SL
[2010/01/17 18:42] Reiko Soyinka grins
[2010/01/17 18:42] Joelle Tardis: And I think thats all I wanted to say
[2010/01/17 18:42] Stahi Columbia: I'm not hearing anything. o.O
[2010/01/17 18:42] Stahi Columbia: Oh.
[2010/01/17 18:42] Stahi Columbia: I was out of range.
[2010/01/17 18:42] Joelle Tardis grins
[2010/01/17 18:42] Medea Warwillow: Is that between mostly sim admins, Joelle, or playersas well?
[2010/01/17 18:43] Joelle Tardis: I see positive interaction with both
[2010/01/17 18:43] Joelle Tardis: and am happy to see it
[2010/01/17 18:43] Zoey Helgerud: I've been trying to set up a very specific RPG, but I haven't had any luck trying to figure out how to set it up.
[2010/01/17 18:44] Blue Myanamotu: We've been doing similar in our sim, Zoey.
[2010/01/17 18:44] Cursa Charisma: What genre, Zoey?
[2010/01/17 18:44] Joelle Tardis: please no more nintendo...
[2010/01/17 18:44] Zoey Helgerud: It was going to be sort of a dark RP that would be like, underwater, and be about scuba divers
[2010/01/17 18:45] Joelle Tardis sighs in relief
[2010/01/17 18:45] Medea Warwillow: Interesting. Definately different.
[2010/01/17 18:45] Joelle Tardis nods
[2010/01/17 18:45] Baroun Tardis nods to Zoey, "Sort of like... darn, what's the movie, witht he underwater lab and sea monster...."
[2010/01/17 18:45] Allen Kerensky: Deepstar Six
[2010/01/17 18:45] Cursa Charisma: Abyss?
[2010/01/17 18:45] JJ Zackerly gave you Sunday Night Shindig!.
[2010/01/17 18:45] Vimala Dasmijn: Jaws?
[2010/01/17 18:45] Allen Kerensky: Leviathan
[2010/01/17 18:45] Sylauxe Zhao: bioshock?
[2010/01/17 18:45] Zoey Helgerud: a little of both
[2010/01/17 18:45] Baroun Tardis: Leviathan
[2010/01/17 18:45] Medea Warwillow: hehe, so there are a few.
[2010/01/17 18:46] Ganon Verstandig: Sphere?
[2010/01/17 18:46] Blue Myanamotu: WATERWORLD! >.>
[2010/01/17 18:46] Vimala Dasmijn: The Cube?
[2010/01/17 18:46] Baroun Tardis nods, "So popular in the mainstream"
[2010/01/17 18:46] Vimala Dasmijn: Saw II?
[2010/01/17 18:46] Zoey Helgerud: but I can't figure out how it would work, where some people would be going around in SCUBA gear, some would be like, sharks or sea monsters, and then some might be like, whalers or something
[2010/01/17 18:46] Medea Warwillow: That ties in to what I was going t talk about ery well.
[2010/01/17 18:47] Allen Kerensky: (to Zoey) IM me later, and I can send you some ideas
[2010/01/17 18:47] Cursa Charisma: Excellent, Allen!
[2010/01/17 18:47] Cursa Charisma: Well, let's hear about ancient historical RP from Medea
[2010/01/17 18:47] Joelle Tardis looks to Medea with interest
[2010/01/17 18:47] Allen Kerensky: (to Zoey) specifically , look into the pen and paper game BLUE PLANET
[2010/01/17 18:47] Medea Warwillow: Actually, I have only a few remarks on that, the main thing i wanted to bring up was sim inspiration.
[2010/01/17 18:47] Medea Warwillow: I've definately noticed some trending in some of the sims inspired by movies.
[2010/01/17 18:48] Zoey Helgerud: Well, the thing is, I was kinda looking to incorporate a slightly sexual element into the RP
[2010/01/17 18:48] Joan Vhargon accepted your inventory offer.
[2010/01/17 18:48] Medea Warwillow: For example, this ast year hasseen the deise of most of he LOTR sims.
[2010/01/17 18:48] Medea Warwillow: And 2010 has been the birth o "Avatar" sims.
[2010/01/17 18:48] Medea Warwillow: *demis
[2010/01/17 18:48] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 18:48] Medea Warwillow: *demise
[2010/01/17 18:48] Baroun Tardis thinks the LOTR sim demises match the advent of LOTRO
[2010/01/17 18:48] Joelle Tardis cringes but agrees
[2010/01/17 18:48] Medea Warwillow: I agree, Baroun.
[2010/01/17 18:49] Sylauxe Zhao: well fishfurs don't have a lot of rp places catered to them, you could really have a hit on your hands if you found a way to get the word out
[2010/01/17 18:49] Baroun Tardis worries about Avatar sims, but since Avatar video game is out, perhaps this will not be too bad
[2010/01/17 18:49] startspy Turbo: How can a fish be furry? please explain this to me as i am very confused now
[2010/01/17 18:49] Cursa Charisma: Medea, our friend Yaku reported encountering a Na'vi kajira
[2010/01/17 18:49] Cursa Charisma: What do you think about that?
[2010/01/17 18:49] Medea Warwillow: None of them seem to have quite started any real roleplay yet, but people ae excited aboutit.
[2010/01/17 18:50] Reiko Soyinka: We have also encountered Na'vi vampires.
[2010/01/17 18:50] Medea Warwillow: what term did we use...Gor-leaching?
[2010/01/17 18:50] Baroun Tardis: Ma
[2010/01/17 18:50] Medea Warwillow: Or just general leaching!
[2010/01/17 18:50] Baroun Tardis: Na'vi kajira?
[2010/01/17 18:50] IISS Utility/Survival kit belt 1.1 (HTCS) whispers: Baroun Tardis is Injecting Stimulant
[2010/01/17 18:50] Joelle Tardis really creinges being a Gorean purist
[2010/01/17 18:50] IISS Utility/Survival kit belt 1.1 (HTCS) whispers: MedSmall, MedSmall,
[2010/01/17 18:50] Baroun Tardis: gotta get my heard started
[2010/01/17 18:50] Baroun Tardis: heart
[2010/01/17 18:50] IISS Utility/Survival kit belt 1.1 (HTCS) whispers: Baroun Tardis is Using Defibulator
[2010/01/17 18:50] Cursa Charisma: Need help, Baroun?
[2010/01/17 18:51] Baroun Tardis: yeah, Na'vi gorean hit pretty hard
[2010/01/17 18:51] Medea Warwillow: hehe, No disrespect Joelle.
[2010/01/17 18:51] Joelle Tardis laughs
[2010/01/17 18:51] Reiko Soyinka: MEdea, will ask you about Gor-leaching, afterward.
[2010/01/17 18:51] Cursa Charisma: Well, this is the thing: furry and Gorean have taken on their own lives inside SL
[2010/01/17 18:51] Joelle Tardis: none taken by you dear now them.....
[2010/01/17 18:51] Baroun Tardis: the first time someone walks up to me and says,"I'm a Na'vi fox-furry kajira vampire", I'm just gonna keel over
[2010/01/17 18:51] Reiko Soyinka: and are mutating rapidly.
[2010/01/17 18:52] Cursa Charisma: Get ready for it, Baroun
[2010/01/17 18:52] Blue Myanamotu: O.o
[2010/01/17 18:52] Joelle Tardis: I am just sticking them with a pin from my veil
[2010/01/17 18:52] Joelle Tardis: and at least not in Kasra
[2010/01/17 18:52] Ganon Verstandig: I wonder how many sorceror-god vampiric Na'vi already exist.
[2010/01/17 18:52] Joelle Tardis: its against the Canon, I know where the an Button is
[2010/01/17 18:52] Blue Myanamotu: I'm not sure that would be enough....they may godmode their way out....
[2010/01/17 18:52] Medea Warwillow: I think because people (most, not all) are involved with so many different roleplays...its almost inevitable that certain things intertwine
[2010/01/17 18:53] Cursa Charisma: Yes, it's vital for sim owners and admins to maintain the basic integrity of their concepts
[2010/01/17 18:53] Baroun Tardis nods to Medea, "Ok, I'm a Third Imperium Scout who masquerades as a Gorean from time to time.. but just to export anti-aging drugs off-planet"
[2010/01/17 18:53] Joelle Tardis laughs
[2010/01/17 18:53] Cursa Charisma: welcome, Anastasia!
[2010/01/17 18:54] Ganon Verstandig: I heard mixed things about the movie, to be honest. A lot of people say OH MY GOD IT'S GREAT, and others saying people are getting wowed by the graphics and therefore don't notice the mediocre plot and dialogue.
[2010/01/17 18:54] Medea Warwillow: Something like avatar is interesting, because it leave roleplay channels open, and lays the foundation for the world to be created in SL.
[2010/01/17 18:54] Sylauxe Zhao: I'm a tiger-dragon elf who fights Jedis
[2010/01/17 18:54] Anastasia Horngold: Hello all!
[2010/01/17 18:54] Joelle Tardis: and he fell in love with a welathy, influential woman there
[2010/01/17 18:54] Medea Warwillow grins
[2010/01/17 18:54] Anastasia Horngold: Sorry to materialize late.
[2010/01/17 18:54] Ganon Verstandig: Hahaha.
[2010/01/17 18:54] Cursa Charisma: We are happy to see you, Anastasia
[2010/01/17 18:54] Allen Kerensky: (to medea) agreed, any movie or book that has a large enough fan base can be a fun RP setting
[2010/01/17 18:54] Ganon Verstandig: SL has very few mundanes.
[2010/01/17 18:54] Cursa Charisma: Please have a seat anywhere you like
[2010/01/17 18:54] Blue Myanamotu: Mmm...never been one to follow the movies, comics or pre-made characters.... it kills your creativity, IMHO.
[2010/01/17 18:54] Joelle Tardis: agreed
[2010/01/17 18:55] Cursa Charisma: Welcome back, AutumnBlitz
[2010/01/17 18:55] Joelle Tardis: *that was to Allen
[2010/01/17 18:55] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: Thank you
[2010/01/17 18:55] Medea Warwillow: True, if you try to follow the story of the movie...and canonize the characters.
[2010/01/17 18:55] Ganon Verstandig: But in many cases, I think, this is because even roleplayers like myself who support the existence of mundanes...
[2010/01/17 18:55] Blue Myanamotu: Plus, you get those religious folk who protest about the way a character is played......but I digress.
[2010/01/17 18:55] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/17 18:55] Ganon Verstandig: Don't have the numbers in terms of roleplayers to do it.
[2010/01/17 18:55] StopAll Animations Red Rose: Stopping 2 animations
[2010/01/17 18:55] StopAll Animations Red Rose: Done
[2010/01/17 18:56] Sylauxe Zhao: might I speak next?
[2010/01/17 18:56] Ganon Verstandig: Go right ahead.
[2010/01/17 18:56] Cursa Charisma: Alright
[2010/01/17 18:57] Anastasia Horngold: brb
[2010/01/17 18:57] Cursa Charisma: hb
[2010/01/17 18:57] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: ...I'm sure the issue with sex has been touched before....
[2010/01/17 18:57] Blue Myanamotu listens to Sylauxe
[2010/01/17 18:57] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 18:57] Sylauxe Zhao: I am currently helping set up and plan an industrial horror RP. Basically a mixture of Silent Hill/dead space/etc kind of horror with a decent amount of sex thrown in
[2010/01/17 18:57] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: ----relatively new, so sex in SL is important to me.
[2010/01/17 18:57] StopAll Animations Red Rose: Stopping 1 animations
[2010/01/17 18:57] StopAll Animations Red Rose: Done
[2010/01/17 18:58] MistressBrazen Bondar: Sylauxe has the floor I beliebe
[2010/01/17 18:58] Cursa Charisma: AutumnBlitz, we're listing now to Sylauxe
[2010/01/17 18:58] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: Please, I meant no intrusion.
[2010/01/17 18:58] Reiko Soyinka: <---has to leave, thank you all for the optimism.
[2010/01/17 18:58] Cursa Charisma: We'll have open discussion afterward
[2010/01/17 18:58] Sylauxe Zhao: It's a bit hardcore, with some torture involved, so the number of rpers might be low at first, but I think it has potential
[2010/01/17 18:58] Sylauxe Zhao: any thoughts?
[2010/01/17 18:59] Cursa Charisma: You have a sim and a core group of players and admins?
[2010/01/17 18:59] Joelle Tardis: you know it will have to be in a age verified area
[2010/01/17 18:59] Cursa Charisma: wb, Hachi
[2010/01/17 18:59] Sylauxe Zhao: not yet, at the moment it's still under construction, but we have some admins set up
[2010/01/17 18:59] Sylauxe Zhao: yes I know
[2010/01/17 18:59] Heihachi Nakamura: you'll thank me for that warning ;p
[2010/01/17 18:59] Joelle Tardis: or at the least Adult
[2010/01/17 18:59] Blue Myanamotu: What Cursa mentioned is key, I think. Admins are very important.
[2010/01/17 19:00] Sylauxe Zhao: yes, while the sim isn't done, we have a number of people with good experience admining RP
[2010/01/17 19:00] Joelle Tardis: Good Admins are Important to the survival of any RP sim
[2010/01/17 19:00] Sylauxe Zhao: if admining is a word :P
[2010/01/17 19:00] Baroun Tardis: And there's always folks who like tortue. I've never figured that out, but there are
[2010/01/17 19:00] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I'm interested in the language of rp in your area. First, second, third personification....I wonder ifthere are rules fo rthat.
[2010/01/17 19:00] Ganon Verstandig just had a great idea for a monthly contest for that sim. XD
[2010/01/17 19:00] MistressBrazen Bondar: good admins are greta but you need at least a small core of dedicated players
[2010/01/17 19:00] Ganon Verstandig: A photo contest based on Fatal Frame.
[2010/01/17 19:01] Heihachi Nakamura: pretty win
[2010/01/17 19:01] Joelle Tardis nods in agreement with Brazen as well
[2010/01/17 19:01] Baroun Tardis: Autum: first person
[2010/01/17 19:01] Ganon Verstandig favors third person.
[2010/01/17 19:01] StopAll Animations Red Rose: Stopping 0 animations
[2010/01/17 19:01] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: The "I" is a very personal way of speaking
[2010/01/17 19:01] StopAll Animations Red Rose: Done
[2010/01/17 19:01] Cursa Charisma says, "I think you need all three"
[2010/01/17 19:01] Ganon Verstandig: In fact, I often talk about Ganon as a separate entity from myself.
[2010/01/17 19:02] Baroun Tardis: Sylauxe: Admin'ing (since it's a contraction)
[2010/01/17 19:02] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 19:02] Ganon Verstandig: To help keep OOC and IC from blending.
[2010/01/17 19:02] Blue Myanamotu: Mm...does it matter? As long as the RP is happening...and people are aware that there is a different between IC and OOC....
[2010/01/17 19:02] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 19:02] Sylauxe Zhao: 3rd person is the most common in SL, so we'll be using that
[2010/01/17 19:02] Blue Myanamotu: If one gets too stuck on rules for RP, it never gets done.
[2010/01/17 19:02] Heihachi Nakamura: ah you made it allen ;p
[2010/01/17 19:03] Heihachi Nakamura: you missed quite a fracas ;p sadly so did I
[2010/01/17 19:03] MistressBrazen Bondar: nonetheless if you have no rules there is chaos
[2010/01/17 19:03] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I have a hard time relating to my fellwo rp players, they can't seem to understand which person I'm coming from.
[2010/01/17 19:03] Sylauxe Zhao: but of course it wont be a rule so much as a guideline. As long as those involved agree with what is going on, everyone's happy
[2010/01/17 19:03] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I liek to mix RL and SL in a seamless way.
[2010/01/17 19:04] Baroun Tardis: For me it's simple - I'm always Baroun. It's rough on the RL people, since they have to deal with me playing my RL persona, but... well.. they cope
[2010/01/17 19:04] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/17 19:04] Joelle Tardis looks at her hubby and laughs
[2010/01/17 19:04] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I am looking for an rp zone where the boundaries of RL and SL are thin.
[2010/01/17 19:04] Baroun Tardis: it's not like they can teleport away, after all
[2010/01/17 19:04] Zoey Helgerud: I think it would be really interesting to have an RP sim where they talk in 3rd person, but the 3rd person is actually personified somehow
[2010/01/17 19:05] Ganon Verstandig: Er?
[2010/01/17 19:05] Ganon Verstandig: You mean strict RP?
[2010/01/17 19:05] Zoey Helgerud: So it's not just some mysterious narrator, but an actual "third person"
[2010/01/17 19:05] Ganon Verstandig: Where the person about whom you are talking is a character separate from yourself?
[2010/01/17 19:05] Ganon Verstandig: As in what I said earlier?
[2010/01/17 19:05] Zoey Helgerud: no, the other way around
[2010/01/17 19:05] Sylauxe Zhao: The biggest promblem the development team for the sim face at the moment is dealing with how extreme is too extreme. One of our key developers just recently left the group in a huff over being told he can't have a room of severed breasts on hooks. It was laggy, wasted prims and was WAY too horrifying and disgusting, but the guy had a fetish for it and refused to remove it.
[2010/01/17 19:06] Blue Myanamotu: O.o
[2010/01/17 19:06] Zoey Helgerud: A "person" other than you would be describing what your character was doing
[2010/01/17 19:06] Joelle Tardis shudders
[2010/01/17 19:06] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I think one has to get to know your rp partner before you can engage in such 3rd person activity
[2010/01/17 19:06] Heihachi Nakamura sighs
[2010/01/17 19:06] Ganon Verstandig: That would be waaaaay too confusing.
[2010/01/17 19:06] Sylauxe Zhao: It's unfortunate that we got some real creepers in the group
[2010/01/17 19:06] Zoey Helgerud: I was thinking it would *technically* be you talking, but through some kind of scripted proxy
[2010/01/17 19:06] Zoey Helgerud: like a parot on your shoulder or something
[2010/01/17 19:07] Heihachi Nakamura: well to be fair you probably would, Zhao
[2010/01/17 19:07] Operating Thetan: Like some kind of meta-you?
[2010/01/17 19:07] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: ..and to engage in a 3rd person personaly, you need to first get out of 3rd person way of speaking.
[2010/01/17 19:07] JohnnySecretAgent009 Portland: hello everyone
[2010/01/17 19:07] Cursa Charisma: Welcome, JohnnySecretAgent009
[2010/01/17 19:07] JohnnySecretAgent009 Portland: ty cursa
[2010/01/17 19:07] Heihachi Nakamura: I try to keep my perversion to myself ;p
[2010/01/17 19:07] Blue Myanamotu: It's difficult to find the blend between RL and RP. Especially for new people. They don't know. And to educate them is difficult too.
[2010/01/17 19:07] Zoey Helgerud: Exactly!
[2010/01/17 19:07] Blue Myanamotu: This has been the struggle we've been facing in Nippon.
[2010/01/17 19:07] Passion: startspy Turbo, desires are the most powerful motivators of role play characters
[2010/01/17 19:08] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I think that transition from 1st person to 3rd person is important in rp
[2010/01/17 19:08] Blue Myanamotu: RP is intimidating to new people. How to get people integrated is our biggest challenge.
[2010/01/17 19:09] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: How can the transition from 1 to 3 be smoother?
[2010/01/17 19:09] Sylauxe Zhao: worst of all is that after he left the group, we found a little skybox he had built for himself 3000 meters up. It was full of animated scenes from snuff films on cubes. The guy was pleasuring himself to snuff in the sim, and nobody even knew it! So the moral here is to be berry, verry careful who you hire as a builder
[2010/01/17 19:09] Allen Kerensky: sounds like this needs to be its own topic again
[2010/01/17 19:09] Baroun Tardis: "put 2 in the middle?"
[2010/01/17 19:09] Zoey Helgerud: Maybe by going through the 2nd person instead of straight from 1 to 3
[2010/01/17 19:10] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I mean, for the rp experience to be more realitic....
[2010/01/17 19:10] Baroun Tardis shudders at Sylauxe's comment
[2010/01/17 19:10] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: We first have to get to know the other's ways of thinking
[2010/01/17 19:10] Heihachi Nakamura: meh you hear about stuff like that all the time from me baroun ;p
[2010/01/17 19:10] Cursa Charisma: Alright, we've passed our scheduled time, with a little help. I'd like to ask for offers and suggestions for a specific themed talk in the next few weeks
[2010/01/17 19:10] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: We have to get to know them somehow.
[2010/01/17 19:10] Allen Kerensky: first and third person sounded like a hot topic again
[2010/01/17 19:10] Joelle Tardis looks at Baroun and thinks that reminds her of a certain early builder in Kasra
[2010/01/17 19:11] Sylauxe Zhao: I am almost afraid of the guy, he's probably like, a serial killer with a bunch of bodies under his crawlspace
[2010/01/17 19:11] Sylauxe Zhao: lol
[2010/01/17 19:11] Baroun Tardis does not like snuff films
[2010/01/17 19:11] Heihachi Nakamura: just one of the many reasons for my irritation with humanity ;p
[2010/01/17 19:11] Joelle Tardis: ?me remembers the Gay Lovebox of prims
[2010/01/17 19:11] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: Without knowing who we are rp'ing with, it's jsut too easy for me.
[2010/01/17 19:12] Zoey Helgerud: ._.
[2010/01/17 19:12] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: I like drama and realism when rp'ing
[2010/01/17 19:12] Sylauxe Zhao: The dilemna is now, what iff we find out something similair is going on with our other builders? We've already lost a lot of lime from losing a key builder, do we push back the reveal ddate even more to accomodate these creepers?
[2010/01/17 19:12] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: The hint of realism is the secret touch, I think
[2010/01/17 19:12] Joelle Tardis: But RP Drama not OOc Drama
[2010/01/17 19:12] Cursa Charisma: wb, Blue
[2010/01/17 19:13] Blue Myanamotu: Thankies Cursa. ^.^ Sorry everyone.
[2010/01/17 19:13] Ganon Verstandig: ... I have never met someone who RP'd in second person.
[2010/01/17 19:13] AutumnBlitz Xenobuilder: Well, catch you guys next time, thanks for the discussions.
[2010/01/17 19:13] Ganon Verstandig: At least not strictly in second.
[2010/01/17 19:13] Baroun Tardis: Syl : I think it depends on the publicity you've given your planned roll out date
[2010/01/17 19:14] Cursa Charisma: Thanks for coming, AutumnBlitz
[2010/01/17 19:14] Blue Myanamotu: Oh, SECOND person!
[2010/01/17 19:14] Ganon Verstandig: Second person is referring to oneself as "You".
[2010/01/17 19:14] Zoey Helgerud: I've met plenty, they just tend to alternate between 1st and 2nd a lot
[2010/01/17 19:14] Ganon Verstandig: But I know what you mean.
[2010/01/17 19:15] Ganon Verstandig: Who refer to whomever they are speaking, most ofen in IMs, as "you".
[2010/01/17 19:15] Sylauxe Zhao: well it's a small community, so it could be a disaster if we screw up. We advertised the shell out of it, and it'd be berry bad publicity to push back the opening lime again
[2010/01/17 19:15] Blue Myanamotu: Aah ha. Quite a few on myspace that does that.
[2010/01/17 19:16] Baroun Tardis: Berry? Lime?
[2010/01/17 19:16] Sylauxe Zhao: huh?
[2010/01/17 19:16] Blue Myanamotu: RP using the "you" and "I"
[2010/01/17 19:16] Baroun Tardis: Anyway, I'd go with a limited opening on-date
[2010/01/17 19:16] Baroun Tardis: with a "We're now open-beta-testing"
[2010/01/17 19:17] Sylauxe Zhao: yeah, at least we'd get some bugs worked out as well that way
[2010/01/17 19:17] Sylauxe Zhao: well, that's all I have to talk about, thank you all very much
[2010/01/17 19:17] Sylauxe Zhao: orange you glad I didn't say berry
[2010/01/17 19:17] Baroun Tardis: Yeah, that'd be a little too fruity
[2010/01/17 19:17] Cursa Charisma: Thank you for coming, Sylauxe
[2010/01/17 19:17] Joelle Tardis shudders
[2010/01/17 19:18] Baroun Tardis: I guess it would have it's a-peel
[2010/01/17 19:18] Baroun Tardis: there was a request about HTCS -
[2010/01/17 19:18] Blue Myanamotu: Yes, please. ^.^
[2010/01/17 19:19] Baroun Tardis: quick version is ""
[2010/01/17 19:19] Baroun Tardis: HTCS - House Tardis Creativity System
[2010/01/17 19:19] Baroun Tardis: is an attempt to add all the classic MMORPG goodness of Stats, Skils (called Flags), Badges (called Brags), Crafting, RP currrency , medicine, etc
[2010/01/17 19:20] Baroun Tardis: to Second life
[2010/01/17 19:20] Cursa Charisma: Without the lagg
[2010/01/17 19:20] Baroun Tardis: Yes
[2010/01/17 19:20] Blue Myanamotu: Oooh.
[2010/01/17 19:20] Baroun Tardis: Low lag
[2010/01/17 19:20] Baroun Tardis: Wide genre coverage
[2010/01/17 19:20] Baroun Tardis: HTCS went 1.0 on Jan 1 2010
[2010/01/17 19:20] Blue Myanamotu pokes Ganon. "you listening to this?"
[2010/01/17 19:21] Ganon Verstandig: Yes.
[2010/01/17 19:21] Baroun Tardis: user base is over 250 users, since initial quiet alpha test in August 2009
[2010/01/17 19:21] Baroun Tardis: and is roughly doubling each month
[2010/01/17 19:21] Blue Myanamotu: Aaah, kk. "I'm going to ask the stupid questions here, but is it good for hard core gamers?"
[2010/01/17 19:21] Allen Kerensky: define hard core
[2010/01/17 19:21] Baroun Tardis: Have you played pen-n-paper RPGs?
[2010/01/17 19:21] Allen Kerensky: do you mean gun-bunnies?
[2010/01/17 19:22] Blue Myanamotu: More like.... katana-bunnies, but similar.
[2010/01/17 19:22] Cursa Charisma: Blue, you can be hit in the head and stunned, hit in the arm and disarmed, and hit in the leg and immobilized
[2010/01/17 19:22] Joelle Tardis: Most realistic Cmbat Syatem in Sl
[2010/01/17 19:22] Cursa Charisma: That's hard core
[2010/01/17 19:22] Allen Kerensky: HTCS incorporates SafeZone/BattleZone/GoreanMeter compatibility
[2010/01/17 19:22] Blue Myanamotu: Oooh.
[2010/01/17 19:22] Baroun Tardis: yeah, you can disarm, break knees
[2010/01/17 19:22] Allen Kerensky: but extends the safezone/battlezone/gorean meter with better damage and medical capabilties
[2010/01/17 19:22] Baroun Tardis: the GM/GLM/Safezomne weapons will work with it
[2010/01/17 19:23] Allen Kerensky: and more possibilities for bonuses and penalties absed on your stats and skills
[2010/01/17 19:23] Cursa Charisma: And congratulations everyone, the ones we didn't have to ban, we wore out
[2010/01/17 19:23] Joelle Tardis: But the HTCs weapons are da bomb
[2010/01/17 19:23] Baroun Tardis: but you don't get XP when using them, nor does they adjust penatlties/bonuses
[2010/01/17 19:23] Baroun Tardis grins
[2010/01/17 19:23] Heihachi Nakamura: blinding people with science is fun :p
[2010/01/17 19:23] Joelle Tardis grins at Allie
[2010/01/17 19:23] Ganon Verstandig: But
[2010/01/17 19:23] Blue Myanamotu: Ganon, you're going to have to push this. Ronin's set on TC.
[2010/01/17 19:23] Baroun Tardis: So, you can use your current weapons, but at some point you'll likely want to upgrade
[2010/01/17 19:23] Heihachi Nakamura still has his suspicions -.o
[2010/01/17 19:23] Ganon Verstandig: I think what Blue is asking is if the fighting is similar to, say... DCS.
[2010/01/17 19:24] Joelle Tardis: Better
[2010/01/17 19:24] Joelle Tardis: and less laggy
[2010/01/17 19:24] Cursa Charisma: Baroun, Blue, maybe you should arrange a demo for the Nippon admins? I'd be happy to have it here, or to come and assist at Nippon
[2010/01/17 19:24] Baroun Tardis: Less laggy, for sure
[2010/01/17 19:24] Baroun Tardis: and the damage is ... different
[2010/01/17 19:24] Ganon Verstandig: I think it'd be something good for the Renjai to test out.
[2010/01/17 19:24] Baroun Tardis: most meters say "you're 50% health"
[2010/01/17 19:24] Joelle Tardis: closer to RL
[2010/01/17 19:24] Cursa Charisma: The healing is what I like best
[2010/01/17 19:24] Baroun Tardis: HTCS says, "You're at 50%, you have a laceration on the torso, and severe wounds to the arms"
[2010/01/17 19:24] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 19:25] Ganon Verstandig: We can give it a shot.
[2010/01/17 19:25] Baroun Tardis: Give me a yell, we'll arrange a demo
[2010/01/17 19:25] Ganon Verstandig: How much do the Flag affect combat, though?
[2010/01/17 19:25] Allen Kerensky: depends on the weapon
[2010/01/17 19:25] Baroun Tardis: Quite a bit, depending on the Flags
[2010/01/17 19:25] Allen Kerensky: HTCS weapons, it can vary quite a lot
[2010/01/17 19:25] Ganon Verstandig: One of the things we value most is that weapons-- ahh.
[2010/01/17 19:25] Joelle Tardis: and the fact that it does so much more tha Just Combat and or Medical is a Plus also
[2010/01/17 19:25] Allen Kerensky: non HTCS weapons are "average" in the system
[2010/01/17 19:25] Ganon Verstandig: Then it's not really a viable system for our sim.
[2010/01/17 19:25] Baroun Tardis: Example, the Warrior flag gives built in damage reduction, since the person is trained to fight
[2010/01/17 19:26] Baroun Tardis: and thus has some built-in dodge skills
[2010/01/17 19:26] Allen Kerensky: might be some misunderstanding
[2010/01/17 19:26] Baroun Tardis: So a Warrior will almost always beat an average joe
[2010/01/17 19:26] Blue Myanamotu: So if all the people in the sim are using DCS weapons, it will not work?
[2010/01/17 19:26] Baroun Tardis: it doesn't read DCS melee attacks
[2010/01/17 19:26] Ganon Verstandig: One of the most important things to us is that everyone is on equal footing in terms of stats.
[2010/01/17 19:26] Baroun Tardis: it'l read DCS missile attacks
[2010/01/17 19:26] Allen Kerensky: if they have equal stats maybe
[2010/01/17 19:26] Ganon Verstandig: Skill is determined by actual fighting skill.
[2010/01/17 19:27] Ganon Verstandig: There'd be no way to regulate that with flags and stuff.
[2010/01/17 19:27] Allen Kerensky: but Conan has a strength 100 and I have a strength 3 - not equal peiople
[2010/01/17 19:27] Baroun Tardis: HTCS has Stats of Strength, Dexterity, Endurance, Intel, Education,a nd social standing
[2010/01/17 19:27] Baroun Tardis: so the way you set yourself up changes the game too
[2010/01/17 19:27] Ganon Verstandig: Yes, I know.
[2010/01/17 19:27] Ganon Verstandig: We... don't allow that in Nippon.
[2010/01/17 19:27] Baroun Tardis: If you're the village wise man with extra points on the mentals (intel, education,etc), you're not in with the strength a samurai has
[2010/01/17 19:27] Heihachi Nakamura: what don't allow Conan? *mutter*
[2010/01/17 19:27] Joelle Tardis: so everyone is identical?
[2010/01/17 19:28] Ganon Verstandig: Everyone has equal combat stats where we are, and fighting is based on... how good you are at fighting.
[2010/01/17 19:28] Baroun Tardis nods to Ganon
[2010/01/17 19:28] Baroun Tardis: yeah, I understand what you're saying
[2010/01/17 19:28] Blue Myanamotu: Each warrior is put in a different class. Stats based on their fighting style.
[2010/01/17 19:28] Ganon Verstandig: For example, I'm much better as a fighter than Blue is, but we have the same stats. Nonetheless, Blue wouldn't beat me.
[2010/01/17 19:28] Blue Myanamotu: But a ninja can take down a samurai if they know how.
[2010/01/17 19:29] Blue Myanamotu: Stats are different based on how each class fights you see.
[2010/01/17 19:29] Baroun Tardis: HTCS is still muscle twitch combat
[2010/01/17 19:29] Ganon Verstandig: And in a match where we don't use our class' powers... ninja and samurai are equals.
[2010/01/17 19:29] Heihachi Nakamura: hu hu hu
[2010/01/17 19:29] Baroun Tardis: so it's still user-skill
[2010/01/17 19:29] Ganon Verstandig: Yes.
[2010/01/17 19:29] Baroun Tardis: there's a bit of difference on the other things though
[2010/01/17 19:29] Baroun Tardis: and those depend on how you se tthings up
[2010/01/17 19:29] Allen Kerensky: so it soudns liek HTCS stats and flags bonuses would map to the "classes abilities" piece
[2010/01/17 19:30] Baroun Tardis: and some abilities are outside the combat area - making some things requires a certain intel, for example
[2010/01/17 19:30] Ganon Verstandig: Nonetheless, this could be a system we might use for certain RP arcs.
[2010/01/17 19:30] Ganon Verstandig: Like Nanog, for example.
[2010/01/17 19:30] Baroun Tardis: Check out the web page, IM me or email if you have questions
[2010/01/17 19:30] Blue Myanamotu groans. "You really want me to take up fighting don't you." smirks.
[2010/01/17 19:31] Blue Myanamotu: KK. Thank you Baroun.
[2010/01/17 19:31] Blue Myanamotu: Something Ganon will need to bring up to the sim owner.
[2010/01/17 19:31] Baroun Tardis: Be glad to .... I'm shodan iaido, RL, so you folks are near and dear to my heart
[2010/01/17 19:31] Baroun Tardis: Muso Shinden Ryu
[2010/01/17 19:32] Cursa Charisma bows formally
[2010/01/17 19:32] Baroun Tardis bows back, very politely, to Cursa
[2010/01/17 19:32] Blue Myanamotu: It is an honor, Baroun-san, to meet you. ^.^
[2010/01/17 19:33] Baroun Tardis: The honor and pleasure are all mine
[2010/01/17 19:34] Anastasia Horngold: I must go--thanks for the chat
[2010/01/17 19:34] Blue Myanamotu: My question, which I am curious, is how you set up the RP in your sims. We've found it rather difficult to maintain. Seems people do not know how to jump in.
[2010/01/17 19:34] Baroun Tardis: Anyway, didn't mean to brag or oanything, just saying that I've got enough Japanese sword background that it had an influence
[2010/01/17 19:34] Cursa Charisma: So, do we have any offers or requests for next week's topic?
[2010/01/17 19:34] Cursa Charisma: Thanks for coming, Anastasia
[2010/01/17 19:35] Heihachi Nakamura: scuse me lads and lasses, got a copy botter to crush.
[2010/01/17 19:35] Cursa Charisma: OK, Hachi
[2010/01/17 19:35] Cursa Charisma: Have an evil one
[2010/01/17 19:35] Cursa Charisma grins

[2010/01/17 19:36] Heihachi Nakamura: "Denial is the first sign of guilt" :p
[2010/01/17 19:36] Heihachi Nakamura: peace out gents.
[2010/01/17 19:37] Baroun Tardis chuckles
[2010/01/17 19:37] Cursa Charisma: Well, I almost miss the kiddie troll gang
[2010/01/17 19:38] Cursa Charisma grins
[2010/01/17 19:38] Ganon Verstandig: :P
[2010/01/17 19:38] Allen Kerensky: it was odd to me since someone told me about an "8-bit" sim just yesterday
[2010/01/17 19:38] Cursa Charisma: Really?
[2010/01/17 19:38] Baroun Tardis: that's creepy
[2010/01/17 19:38] Allen Kerensky: so I drop in right in the middle - sounded reasonable to me until they cut CoolLuke off
[2010/01/17 19:39] Allen Kerensky: and the link I sent to the ? block is valid
[2010/01/17 19:39] Allen Kerensky: the thing works just like the game
[2010/01/17 19:39] Cursa Charisma: Yes, that was the game - pretend to be real and just waste everyone's time
[2010/01/17 19:39] Allen Kerensky:
[2010/01/17 19:39] Allen Kerensky: you know - after 5+ years in SL - and nights like this - I realize I have no clue what RP is anymore
[2010/01/17 19:40] Cursa Charisma: Well, Allen, I've seen some great rp in Firefly and Al Raqis
[2010/01/17 19:40] Baroun Tardis: I'm not sure what people get from stunts like that - where's the fun in messing up someone else's meeting?
[2010/01/17 19:40] Cursa Charisma: Well, Baroun, it's like the Pranknet people
[2010/01/17 19:40] Cursa Charisma: They get a feeling of power from social engineering
[2010/01/17 19:41] Allen Kerensky: behold the power of mute
[2010/01/17 19:41] Cursa Charisma nods
[2010/01/17 19:41] Allen Kerensky: you know, its weird seeing how RP started in SL and what its come to now
[2010/01/17 19:42] Allen Kerensky: really, furries blazed the trail, and the Goreans jumped in just behind them... then it went quiet ... then the Trek Explosion
[2010/01/17 19:42] Allen Kerensky: followed by the Star Wars Shockwave
[2010/01/17 19:42] Cursa Charisma: Well, I'm sorry to rudely leave you here, but I need to get to work. Thank you all for coming, and enduring through the childish trolling. Please IM or notecard me with offers or requests for topics and speakers
[2010/01/17 19:42] Cursa Charisma: Allen, I'd love if you could give a talk on the history of RP in SL
[2010/01/17 19:42] Allen Kerensky: not rude, its late, take care Cursa
[2010/01/17 19:42] Allen Kerensky: hahaha you jsut read it
[2010/01/17 19:42] Cursa Charisma: OK, lol
[2010/01/17 19:42] Baroun Tardis: I'm sorry, i don't mean to be rude iether, but need to log
