Battle in the streets of Lost Angels
Battle in the streets of Lost Angels

Everyone likes to win.  Victory is savored by all while defeat is desired by none.  What do you do when you are defeated and it is the other player’s turn to celebrate victory at your expense?  Just as victory can be played with much satisfactions, a defeat that is well planned and executed will result in some magnificent role play.  Even a torture scene can be fun for all the players involved.  It takes some imagination and some OOC (Out of Character) contact in IMs (Instant Messaging) to work out what will be done and how it will be executed so that you, the victim, are given the opportunity to do your part.

New Delphi

New Delphi

This scene happened last night.  A very good one if you ask me.  This scene involved interaction with each other and with an unknown and unseen force.  What do you do?  How do you react when you can’t see your attacker?  What comes across your mind as it begins to affect you physically and mentally?  You could play it as not affecting you, but then you would be GodModding the situation.  Everyone will at some point encounter something more powerful than them that can bring them to their knees or perhaps destroy them.  How would you play this?  (more…)

At Rampart with Joia

At Rampart with Joia

I’m posting another example of good roleplay.  This time involving Demons and Humans.  There is a reason I picked this sliver of RP.  For one, it has a good mix of characters that talk  in their own dialect of English.  There is also a fair amount of drunken talk, Brood speak, IMs, and OOC conversations.  Make a note of the brackets (( )) or ( ) when making OOC comments, Brood chat which is shown prior to the language as (in Brood), IMs which show up with IM at the beginning, and AH keying her mike to talk into her communications unit.  All factions have a communications unit to call each other in their language or to communicate will all factions member within that sim.  Another thing I’d like to point out is corrections.  Frequently we are typing so fast to get out RP out that we make typing mistakes so usually if we think the other person/persons will not understand what was said, we will post the errant word after an asterisk to denote an addition to what was stated in the previous RP post.

Abbey - Vampire's Asylum

Abbey - Vampire's Asylum

I happened upon this while wandering in Abbey, one of the CCS chain of sims connected to Lost Angels.  The Abbey sim is in the style olden England with cottages and homes.  I enjoyed this RP very much simply because of the language used by both players.  The player that was playing the vampire spoke very classically as if it were Victorian times.  The victim played her part very well too.

Today I’m posting a scene in which I participated with a friend, Morgan Veloce.  She was kind enough to give me permission to use her roleplay logs and gave me a nice snippet of something that we had played out a long time ago.  The following scene took place at the Desatanica Cafe in Lost Angels.  The premise of the story is that Morgan witnessed some things, the night before, that transpired between myself and RM.  In her attempt to be protective of me, she wants to tell my friend Zir about it but not in front of me.  Enjoy this scene which I think was very well played out by all involved.  Notice the use of brackets for OOC comments and conversation.  Take notice of how certain characters present themselves as authority figures and how some react with arrogance.

As I wander the streets of Lost Angels I encounter people that I have never seen around.  They may be new players or they may be seasoned veterans that created an alt to start fresh and do something different from what they usually do.  In any case, I like to approach the ‘new players’ because it’s a chance not only to meet new people but to work other role-play angles that I may not usually use.  Last night I met two such people in my time in the sim.  The following is my encounter with two role-players by the names of KB and MG.  They appeared to be a new players but were very good with her RP and a pleasure to do so with.  After we parted ways, I IM’d MG in OOC and thanked her for the great RP.  Regardless of the outcome, I like to go up against someone that will challenge my expectations.  Here are two excerpts of the RP as was played out last night:

The following is a scene that played out just a few days ago.  There are three characters in this scene, Demon X, SR, and myself.  SR is from what I can gather a new player or relatively new because of what she was doing from the very beginning of this scene, metagamingMetagaming is when you use any sort of information that was gained OOC (Out of Character) to use IC (In Character).  An example would be someone you just met using the name above your head without ever having met you or having been told of you.  This is widely frowned on by the role playing community because in real life, you would not know someone’s name having met them the first time. When we are in Second Life we have our name above our heads at all times.  In our role play sim, we have out meters which detect damage, show status, and level.  We also may have, as I do, other descriptive text above our heads but solely for reference purposes only.  My friend Demon X wears a tail but is otherwise human in appearance and I am completely human in appearance yet carry the title of incubus above my head.  With this in mind read on.

 

The scene is as follows:  DemonX and I are standing on a rooftop looking over the city when a human appearing female, SR, climbs up and joins us.  Neither of us had ever seen or addressed her before.
