I've been in and out of SL for over a decade and every time I find myself building this deep backstory that I never really successfully flesh out. RL and time zone issues are more often than not, the reasons behind my losing steam and eventually making my exit only to find myself back and wanting to start anew. I'm sure that's not uncommon but I do think the switch I need to make (given all my issues lol) is to anchor myself on something more casual and more accommodating for other people to incorporate into their stories. Wanted to get some of your thoughts on a few ideas I have. 🙂
Establishments & Services
Plant Shop & Gardening Services
I don't think I've seen anything similar in CD. The shop would be a destination for players and services would allow for more private RP at your establishment or home.
Carpentry and General Repairs
Also both a destination and an off-site service. Players can bring in items for repair at the shop (carpentry, electrical, etc.) or call to service an establishment or home.
Clothing Thrift Store
Initially thought of a thrift in general but that might overlap with the pawn shop somehow. This shop focuses more on clothing and apparel where one could rummage through the bargain bins or drop off their own items for discarding.
Meta Male Escort
Behind the legitimate businesses would be discretely illicit operations (as expected). Probably more applicable to the gardening and repair man services where my character also doubles as a male escort. The RP need not be sexual though there'd be a lot of fun to be had in giving 'watering your garden' or 'cleaning your pipes' the meaning they deserve. I also like the idea of the escort specializing in roleplay. RP within RP might be the only way we can get sucked into SL permanently 😉
((Looking to rent the shop near the diner. There's also a vacant one at the corner with doors that open into the street...really nice view of the diner and the sea..but no for rent sign unfortunately...anyone know if that's available to use?))
I've always wanted to have long-running relationships IC...a direct relative, a business partner, etc. Let me know if you're looking for the same thing.
Anyway, that's all I have so far but willing to collaborate and partner with people to start something fun.
I'll still be keeping my main character alive somehow but I don't expect spontaneous RP to come out of that. If you're curious and interested in roleplaying something a lot more planned, here's the site I put up with his back story and all: https://sites.google.com/view/soran-sebastian/bio
Looking forward to meeting and roleplaying with more of you in the future 🙂
