Location: Shopping for Grave-Robber & Evil Doctor Tools
I was doing a bit of accessorizing for our university's House of Usher simulation when I stumbled into a Bloodlines' roleplaying region:
Vampire 1: What clan are you a part of
Vampire 2: santuary of darkness?
Ignatius Onomatopoeia: Academia...the undead. I'm here to shop
Vampire 1: Cool
Second Life...where the socializers and roleplayers rub shoulders with the shambling corpses from The Academy. Those vamps are lucky I didn't make an avatar out of my utterly evil Voodun cultist, Okonkwo Richelieu. I once ran him in Vampire the Masquerade and it was wicked fun.
Effective vampires do not say "cool." They say things like "it is going to be fun to see this city bleed on Mardi Gras."
Well, my next post will be about why contact with that social and RP aspect of SL may not be needed. Can faculty building a simulation simply do it without SL?
