    This isn’t related to any specific occurrence.

    Quick question about gangs, factions and business owners etc. There seem to have been a lot of proposals lately. I’m concerned that if you start a scene in one of their locations which is vacant (of RPers) when you start, what happens if they show up to RP there? Preplanned or otherwise.

    Is it sti…[Read more]

    Great idea.

    I think the majority of your customers would be female. My own ‘hairdresser’ is a fairly girlie place. I go there because it’s in walking distance. Never seen another man there but I never feel like I’m in the wrong place either. The one I went to before was a bigger place. It had a wee room 6ft by 10ft for men and a massive salon…[Read more]

    Great point Blue. I think it’s important to remember this in general as well as in relation to HPD. Creativity and originality are far more important than -strict- adherence to realism. It’s a balance though. Dodging bullets is bad. Kissing someone without RPing standing on something because you’re short, not so bad 🙂

    I think the best advice has already been mentioned. Best to ignore this nonsense and focus on your own RP.

    With regards to people not answering/ignoring, a LOT of people now are IC tagged and on sim on their phones, often distracted at work etc as well as doing other things on their PC. It’s easy to drift off to other things while IC especially…[Read more]

    This is an excellent point. I remember reading about the original Robocop movie. People said the lead character getting shot up with shot-guns and shot in the head with a pistol was unrealistic and he would not have survived. Turns out they consulted an ER doctor who said they get people like that all the time. They’re in very bad shape, but…[Read more]

    It’s not right to RP laughing at the muzzle of a gun because you have a death limit. It doesn’t have to be ‘fear’ like “No don’t hurt me *wets self*” Fear manifests itself in a multitude of ways. Fear can be aggression. You grab for the gun, it goes off, you get wounded but not killed. Good scene, no limits breached.

    This is why I broadly dis…[Read more]

    One additional thing to be made clear, no one, not even cops can rape if it’s a limit. No matter how realistic or in keeping with story it might be. You can have great Jail / HPD RP without forced fantasy and there are any number of reasons why it wouldn’t happen. Bribe, I know this/that cop (whether you Icly do or not), my big brother / fri…[Read more]

    So many great points made here on such an important topic. I’ve rambled a LOT but highlighted the important parts in BOLD so feel free to skip the rest.

    As I recall the concept of ‘Hathian’s Biggest gang’ was to combat the whole overblown gang mentality we had way back when. You’d encounter a gang member or two and start off a fair and balance…[Read more]

    Awesome idea. Even criminals and the down trodden like a drink & dance. Only so many people can fit on roof of that car outside the pawn shop 😉

    A town like Hathian would have more than one or two spots to dance as such spots would attract drug trade and other criminal elements. Not sure how much room there is sim-wise for more but would be great…[Read more]

    Good point Shaun. I’ve seen this too :/

    I think the rule is if it’s a public combat scene, you don’t need permission to play in. If it’s a more discrete scene or forced fantasy in an ally or some such, you do need to ask permission.

    I find it generally better to IM regardless, whomever seems to be the primary in the scene, and most importantly…[Read more]

    Thanks Blue 🙂 Originally I added info about Taser’s causing all muscles to tense but it was based on a youtube video so wasn’t sure it was accurate.

    I guess ‘getting used’ to tasering would be like getting used to being electrocuted. The pain might be familiar but that doesn’t mean the effect would be diminished in any way.

    In addition…[Read more]
