Family Roleplaying Communities In Second Life- Nena Dreadlow Reporting.

Family role play has become very popular in Second Life. It seems many residents are seeking to belong to a group and share in fun and activities. The foundation for family role play begins with a bond between couples who wish to expand their families with the addition of babies and extended families members. There are numerous growing families in Second Life and communities catering to their needs.

 What is a family Role play community, what things do you do and what are the popular communities in Second Life?

Giano Estates New England Family Sim Community Role Play

Giano Estates is one of the top family role-playing communities in Second Life. Once you enter the sim it is like you're entering a real life town.  Giano Estates has beautiful homes for rent. They offer homes from 2 to 4 bedrooms. The estates also has lots of things to do including going to a Bowling alley, movie theater, a car wash  and shopping at the grocery store.  Residents can role play as a policeman,  postal worker and even  a doctor! Giano Estates has expanded to 9 sims due to family growth.  If you are looking for a place to raise your family, we would suggest touring this wonderful  family rp sim.

Olrich Estates

Once you enter Olrich Estates you will be in the downtown area which has a job bank and Rental office.  The downtown streets are lined with lots of shops, a hospital and gas station.
Olrich Estates also has homes to rent as well as apartments.  As I was walking around I could see people talking, hanging out and family role-playing. It was fun to watch and see how they interact.  There is so much to see and do here. I would recommend that you take a tour. You might even want to make your home here

Belleview Estates

Belleview Estates is a family friendly community.  Upon entering Belleview Estates you will come across the town hall which has a list of houses for rent and even a unemployment board. The estates also offer a Life store, gas station and a adoption agency.  The sim is aso surrounded by water for families who want to raise their children with ocean views. Take a tour today.

Pleasant Hope Estates

Pleasant Hope Estates is where I call home. It is zooby and child friendly. The town hall is the place to go to find out all the information you need about activities, rentals and jobs. The staff is very friendly and helpful.  I love living here because there are lots of things to do. Come see for yourself.

Greensboro Estates

Greenboros Estates is a tree lined community with a beautiful waterfall in the background.  Their motto is “Family is first” and you can tell that they mean it. If you're looking for a quiet place to call home then this might be the place for you. Greenboros Estates even has an adoption agency for couples looking to expand their families.  If you are looking to add to your family then you should check it out. I must say I was very impressed with this community and enjoyed looking around.

There are of many other family role playing sims in second life but these communities stand out to me. I love the fact that you can be part of and raise a family in the same way you would in real life.  It is so wonderful to visit these sims and see in all the things that you can participate in.

If you are looking for a great family friendly place to live then you must check out these locations.


  1. Greensboro Estates is nothing but drama the new owners and management are nothing but young people with no life running it. When you have people that want to live in your sim your treat people with respect or you loss those people they will tell others. They ply all nice ten they take a run with your money ban you from that land no question asked. Beware of trying to live in Greenboro they will use you stalk you.
