Role Playing in Second Life- Piers Diesel Reporting...





According to Wikipedia, (2014) Role playing is refers to as “taking a role of an existing character or person and acting it out with a partner taking someone else's role, often involving different genres of practice” 


We have all sometime in our lives, role played, beginning in childhood when our imagination was running wild. For example, boys pretending to be superheroes by jumping off of household furniture and being yelled at by mothers saying, “this is not a playground!” Little girls may have role played being a princess or even acted out scenarios using Barbies with friends. Role play has evolved significantly from those times with the rapid expansion of technology and more adults are participating in creative ways.


Role play in Second Life has a large community. From vampires, fairies, lycans and furries characters to ancient, medieval and combat sims where RP residents can actually play whatever role they would like with their friends from real world history, popular video game, movie or computer game story lines.

If you have always wanted to RP but do not know where to go, here is a list of locations in Second Life to explore. Keep in mind that there are many different genres of role play out there that can be found using the Second Life search engine.

“Furries” as they are known by Second Life Residents are avatars in the form of fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics. Just as in the real world the “Fandom” subculture is a role play community that exists in SL.

Many long time residents have seen furries at some time in Second Life and throughout the years they have integrated within the Second Life community in different ways.  One of the more known Furries in Second Life is Bixyl Shuftan, owner of SL Newser.

Furry Friendly? CeciliaRosalie Reporting...




  It is such a different and rare topic. Isn't it? Let's get into role-playing (RP for short).
Role-play refers to acting out in a particular character, using the words and customs of that character, become a mimic. Interesting eh? Keep in mind that actions which are OOC (Out of character) MUST BE noted in some way, or not used in this mode of communication this the basic rule.
