This would be my first venture into the world of MOOs, MUDs, MUSHs, or what have you; though, thankfully, not to RPing (by way of the Spoony One) nor text adventures ("adult" ones, admitedly).
Here's hoping the bitches stay IC. ^_^
This is my first MOO/MUD as well. It's dark and lots of RP is available.
Enjoy your time plotting and playing and maybe we'll come across each other sometime.
Ask game questions often on the Game Help channel in game (xgame). The group here is good and have been quite helpful when they catch the questions.
As someone completely new to this style of gameplay, you might find it challenging at first, given that the game world can be dark and unforgiving. However, you will pick it up quickly!
Hope you find some niches you enjoy and have a great time with them. Sindome and its staff are awesome. :)
I've been a RPer for years, both in medieval and mostly WoD themes. It gets to a point where you cannot play another vampire, werewolf, mortal+ anymore, because the sad, angsty story is always the same. So I haven't been roleplaying in... god, a year, maybe? I went looking for some place different on MudConnector, some place original and after several visits to, what I found out to be, dead places, I found Sindome.
So far, the learning curve has hurt my brain, but I'm getting there. I found RP right away and the NLM term systems blows my mind. (Seriously, how was this coded?)
During the day, I have a desk job and I roller skate for exercise. My play on SD isn't hard core, but not casual either; I'm on a few hours, a couple of days a week. I'm trying to avoid this face from RPing too late at night: o.O
Nice to meet everyone!
First, to all the 'newbs'...welcome to your new addiction :) But, seriously, good to meet you guys.
I've been an Rper for over ten years, but, like my Jade twin above (wonder twins, activate?) before SD it was mostly medieval. I totally feel your pain on the angst aspect. I guess I would still be considered pretty new to the game. I'm definitely not as experienced as many of the players I've seen.
During the day, I work in law enforcement so I get the combined thrill of exercise and work simultaneously (heh). I also have a teen daughter so, does competitive shopping count as a contact sport? I avoid roller skating, though. I'm a clutz by nature and that would be taking my life into my hands and probably not end well.
I would call myself somewhere in the middle of casual and hardcore, I guess. SD is my wind down after dealing with all the real baddies, I would say.
Anyways, good to meet all you new players and I look forward to getting to know even more experienced ones.
Or hell, maybe I don't even have to do that.
For now, I'll just try to stay alive and get some money.
Get into characters by taking into account your history, goals and go out and meet people, RP, & work on making that stuff happen.
Getting into your character and finding the others to talk to, play with, learn from, is going to get you further into your character and out of the factory faster than anything. People know stuff, people know people, people need stuff, people will have their characters help yours get involved with stuff.
Welcome! An dooooon't beeeeee scaaaared.... Bwwaaahaahaa!
So, I have been here about a month and a half, having fun.
I have some previous RP experience, online and RL, from years ago (Star Wars, Babylon 5 *RIP*). My RL interwebs is garbage and I was burning out on online Netrunner so I began looking for a MUSH. Stumbled upon SD after not finding a Star Wars one which really seemed alive. RL I do photography, surf and curse my ISP.
