    replied to the topic Getting permission in the forum Roleplay Discussion 5 years ago

    Businesses are just as much entities on sim and in roleplay as someone’s character.

    While I do suggest people being more open minded, ultimately, just as people shouldnt be told what to do and how to rp out there characters, I do not think people should be told what to do with their businesses either.

    So if a business owner says no, then that…[Read more]

    Good suggestion hitomi. And BTW-if you go to the DEPD Station and click on the mailbox in the lobby, it’ll give you in NC form basically the exact police report format the computer uses (for the purposes of informing the PD of a call NPC police responded to if no police RP’ers are around. (And if you cant find it IM me inworld I got that in my…[Read more]

    LOL Good one, “keep it real.”

    Altho I am more and more so trying to take on that, “Go with the flow and see where it takes you,” approach, rather than deal with the stress of doing everything in my power to protect my char and any agendas, take time and effort out of my busy schedule to plan out RP’s that might not happen, and the…[Read more]

    Anabella-there are still people who care more about realism than their plans, and are totally open to whatever surprises/challenges they may come face to face with. I’m trying to be more so that person than the guy ultra defensive of my char and what I’d like.

    And of course, there are -and until things change will be- those who seek to get…[Read more]

    TBH, I too am a big believer in realism but when it comes to RP’ing there are a myriad of factors that needs to be taken into consideration aside from realism. If me and some friends had planned a RP for some time and looked forward to it and made arrangements to be together for it, id be beyond pissed/disappointed if some “white knight”…[Read more]

    Heads upon another thing too:

    Lately, if a police report is filed against you, regardless of whether or not you were actually arrested and booked into the jail or not the sim’s computer system will tell you that you were arrested and booked.

    Something to look out for-and if you need to check simply go to “My Criminal Record” under “My Feed” on…[Read more]

    LOL hitomi dont worry about the criminal record. Just RP it doesnt exist the way it shouldnt. No one butyou and DEPD should have access, if anyone asks just explain. Besides, you can RP a new char on the same avatar if youd like and still have the old reports on your avi in the system, and of course you’d rp that your new char doesnt have a…[Read more]

    All of the fights I’ve been in as of late have all related back to one ongoing storyline that’s been for about two weeks now. But I must say, I have noticed that people now tend to pull baseball bats out of all things each time someone says one thing wrong and one time even had the bat pulled for approaching a stranger I never knew sided with one…[Read more]

    replied to the topic DE Violence in the forum General Discussion 5 years, 1 month ago

    Thats because fights are being started as a quick way to SC and the only way to SC is if 911 is called and PD responds. On top of that, fights are impromptu and not meant to last long or be part of a long term RP, but when someone gets dragged off to be held captive for some time, thats an RP that people have been planning for some time and an…[Read more]

    I do not think at all it is simply a coincidence that the moment Street Cred becomes a thing in DE now theres all this talk about the way violence on sim has changed.

    If anything, Street Cred has been fully implemented in Crack Den (sister sim, same management as DE) since way way way before it was in DE and not everything there (as far as I’ve…[Read more]

    Kerian-guess so lol.

    Another thing I want to point out after reading through even more of the previous posts (there’s so many – wow – this discussion really is booming) is the Street Cred system. I personally love the idea of a rp rewards system being in place to encourage more RP, but the thing about Street Cred is, it is ever increasingly more…[Read more]

    I think another thing to point out -other than the BDSM- is the way the role the Asylum is supposed to play in DE’s theme. Supposedly, DE is an Asylum town that’s built for the asylum, a town where the Asylum is the center of people’s lives the way a mine may the the center of people’s lives in a mining town. However, these days, unless you’re a…[Read more]

    Too be honest, for the past two years I think DE for the most part has only been a BDSM Kidnap Sim by name only.

    BDSM, which stands for Bondage and Discipline/Dominance and submission/Sadism and masochism, is about Doms/subs, a master dominating a slave, etc, and the things that go along with such a relationship. I know Melangell had been a Dom…[Read more]

    Akima-I understand your frustration but if there’s anything I’ve learned from 18 months of leading groups myself-dont expect things to work out, especially dont expect others to do what they’re supposed to, and always have a backup plan. People forget, people lose interest, things come up, and guess what-SL is secondary to RL and no one has to be…[Read more]

    Yea I totally agree, especially with “why not head out into the RP wasteland…”

    From what I have gathered over time, DD and DF are both built, maintained, and paid for not only for people to use, but also so that people-and their lag-would spread out a bit more and DE itself wouldnt be so laggy. Same story as with CD-7 sims not only so that…[Read more]

    LOL kitty unless for whatever reason im not seeing notices/alerts in the FD group even emergency services didnt know about it before hand.

    I was on the road when I saw the notices for the tornado and wished I was there for it. Doubt any advanced warning could have made a difference tho, TBH.

    In terms of the bail bonds-Im surprised they’re not any busier as people get arrested-and need to be bailed out-all the time. Perhaps there is a need to raise some awareness. One thing the sim can do about this: in CD, when you’re jailed there are payphone objects in the jails that one can click-and the info for bailing (and who to call for…[Read more]
