My biggest project to accomplish over the next month or two in SL is dedicated to the complete overhaul of the criminal and legal system here in Dead End. From systems to policy, I think it’s time we took a hard look at the way the police/legal/criminal dynamic works and how we can further push the envelope when it comes to urban role-play in SL.
When I think about Dead End, I think about a sprawling metropolis with dark corners and a cesspool of corruption. I think there’s an opportunity to expand the opportunities of role-play scenes, social classes, and character depth (ie. more jobs, offering cred for various kinds of RP outside of police and medical, etc.).
I took my first stab at the though process over the weekend and have decided to do the following:
This is a very high-level summary of a few pages of notes I’ve been working on. I wanted to throw this out there so you can pitch ideas or feedback on the points I touched on. I’ll definitely answer any questions I have answers to now, as well as take your feedback into consideration as I wrap up the new features.
I’ve also talked to admins about reviewing our current staff and leaders to make sure we have a roster of active folks as we get these changes in place.
