Now that Lillie's called this a 'series', I'm feeling like I'd better get my sweet ass in gear and do some more exploring!
So, since I'm still waiting for the Midian City #2 tour (if you want to help, let me know!) I decided to IM another person that was recommended to me and see what she could help with.
Petite Pixie was my tourguide this evening and was generous enough to give the grand tour of her new sim, New Olympus - The Masquerade.
This sim is also a roleplaying sim, so it fits in beautifully with my recent thread about roleplaying in SL. The Masquerade is a fairly new roleplaying sim having just opened two weeks ago, and Petite told me that this sim is focused solely on vampire roleplaying and based on the book RPG Vampire the Masquerade.
We started the tour in the Moonlight Cafe.. a diner that's open to humans by day, but vampires by night. Petite also mentioned that it's night 100% of the time in New Olympus, so all you humans might as well stay home. The tour continued with walks through the theatre, Petite's own furniture store, and a store with breakable windows (neat!). There's a bar, a prison that was converted into a dance club (with an amazing lava pit underneath), and a church with "bingo, cards, and bondage" underneath. That's my kind of religion. BINGO!
We continued our tour and saw the construction site, the park where a huge cargo plane had crashed, a garage, a hospital and some bathrooms.
As you know, I'm still very new to the roleplaying scene and I have everything to learn. It's fascinating to me to see these different areas and really start to think about the types of storylines that can develop here. Storylines that don't begin and end with just one person, but are built upon, over time, by an entire community of people dedicated to this project. Love that.
