I have heard of a new tribe called River Delta on the Obsessions land i asked to interview the En Katya (totallysurrendered) and her tribe, they call themselves BBP
bodi (bodicapagan): thank you for invitation
Katya (totallysurrendered): ((Welcome to My camp, Everyone this is Bodi from the Gorean Gazette, Mariko asked for a small article on us ())
Tanesia (tanjalesbian) tal Bodi hugs..what a surprise to have you here ,
Katya (totallysurrendered): Bodi a seat by the fire if you like
bodi (bodicapagan): (( greetings every one i write over a few visits so please chat to me
Tara (tiff589) is still hugging her chair tightly encase anyone tries to remove her from it
Wolfie (cordira) walks with the tanesia as pulled along
bodi (bodicapagan): thanks
Tala (tallaniel) sighs and looks around again before gazing at Kat. “Can… I think about your offer and give you my answer in the morning?”
Ludmilla Lunasea rubs her head, confused by so many people chatting together.
Tara (tiff589) laughs seeing kat sit in the still honey coated chair
Katya (totallysurrendered) smiles to Tala “sure but in those clothes I wouldn’t suggest running, you freeze by time you get to any dock!” well there is a Kur cave next door they enjoy female company”
Tala (tallaniel) nods, not looking very happy. “IS there some cave or hut where I can sleep?”
bodi (bodicapagan): can i ask why you started the tribe , and why here ? what is your vision for your tribe?
Katya (totallysurrendered): sure bodi, we started RDP as we were Talender but noticed that everyone on the continent is bored, there is no rp there, and everyone had started to either depart or make silly rp like death and drama
bodi (bodicapagan): so why the big change , and move to this place
Katya (totallysurrendered): we came here and made RDP, restarted me old tribe but Sa Seraka Tor has been copied so many times, we gave it a new name, River Delta Panthers, to generate rp, and try to get back to the roots of gor and not pew pew / cap/rescue/ raid pew pew / rinse and repeat of the continent
Katya (totallysurrendered): well the entire mini continent here, is all committed to it, you already spoke to Sarah EN of the Ordovices next sim over, and then we have Northern Outpost newly rebuilding on this sim, and of course this huge “mountain: behind me is the 6 Claws Kur ship that also are here and they are committed to rp, and not just shoot, down, run off, that sadly the continent has become, that and the friendly attitude, I walked from gimli to mystic forest yesterday, no one even tried to rp, anything just blindly walked past,
bodi (bodicapagan): and why then do you think you can offer more rp? , this sounds very exciting for rpers, how have you gained new huntress , to join , have you rp them in or by invitation, so what i am asking is how do new people join you?
Katya (totallysurrendered): Well Rosecynder here we brought over from Talender as we knew she can rp as we came over, Tara and I came here looking at the place and loved the attitude of the BBP idea as it matched our plan of restarting, trying to reboot what we loved, some have rp in like Tanesia here, and Kimba still doing hers , longest rp ever 🙂 ,
bodi (bodicapagan): do you have organised events , or continue rp, do you have slaves , and do you treat them like btb , or like private
Tara (tiff589): we do have slaves here.. and we try to treat them btb, well btb panthers didnt really keep slaves they detested the idea of females kneeling,
bodi (bodicapagan): nods
Katya (totallysurrendered): so we had to be a lil flexible there
bodi (bodicapagan): nods
Katya (totallysurrendered): but we try to be as close as we can, hence BBP not BTB
bodi (bodicapagan): bbp
Katya (totallysurrendered): plus BTB spend more time arguing over misinterpreting the books than extending it into a viable rp
bodi (bodicapagan): nods so as a tribe do you go out looking for rp or stay here and have people come
Katya (totallysurrendered): both
Tara (tiff589): both
Katya (totallysurrendered): all the groups here, River Delta Panthers, Northern Outpost, 6 Claws, Ordovices and Iceni all try to pull together with same sim rules, same ideals of extending the rp of gor and not just shoot / down/ more of same
bodi (bodicapagan): same sim rules across all, i have written about this and have try to promote this idea, is it working ?
Tara (tiff589): it works, yes
Katya (totallysurrendered): we have ongoing rp with Sa Pasheen, trade and such, and Talender Moon we try to rp with as well, we get a lot of visitors, random panthers and such that drop by, traders and as I say we have Kur next door so they tend to try to show themselves at times
bodi (bodicapagan): so could you give me your vision for the future, and what do you say to others who say gor is dying
Tara (tiff589): as i am exhausted at the moment i wont even try to give what our vision is… its simply a healthy place to RP that is book based, and isn’t pew pew.
Katya (totallysurrendered): It is dying, if we don’t make an effort, I came from originally Billboard / HTML Gor in 1989 long before SL came, then IRC / YAHOO and MSN Gor, then came Palace gor and SL Gor, so it has gotten watered down over the years, sadly the descriptiveness has faded, so we trying to bring it back some, our vision is not to let it fade into just another game like call of duty or zombies, but to bring back the core of Honour and Gor again, so maybe just maybe the newer visitors can get a glimpse of what we had
I asked huntress from the tribe one very new and one experienced rper
can i ask you how you are finding this new tribe, and are you having more rp, would you recommended it
bodi (bodicapagan): yes tan please
Tanesia (tanjalesbian) this is my opinion not from the tribe nor from anyone else ..I do not believe a tribe can make for you a better tribe there is not a such thing as a better or less better tribe ..I was in Talendermoon the Tribe was good leaded but have i found more rp there then here ..? T hats the question of every siingle person ..I have served in tavern Elation ..had i more rp then i have now ..? There is no tribe what can give you rp ..No one will knock on you screen with the question ” can you rp with me ” ..I was captured by the wagon people they have killed me ..I had that time a great long RP …I went for the ashes from letti i found her burning on a table when i went to Tazberg i asked Athene for her ashess ..It was a great intense RP ..If i join tomorrow Shekinah will i have more rp then i have now ..My answers is NO! No matter what tribe you join its you who make the RP not the Tribe nor a En ….I think one tribe is better then a other by who it leads ..Not by less or more rp because it depends on yourself
Tanesia (tanjalesbian): how much rp you have ..This tribe EN banish some one who made ooc group drama ..How many tribes will banish some one who make group drama ? And therefore this tribe is great
Tanesia (tanjalesbian): I think this tribe have a good EN what makes her a good EN is that she dare to speak and not work on numbers ..You mess up ..bad luck ..There you go ..This tribe is good because you cant come here and just shoot for you GM point farming ..You need a IC reason and have to rp before you shoot ..Gor will never be death daily there are over the 4000 new accounts there are daily new people who join gor ..IF people waste less time with complaining and put more time in rp ..Then people wont be bored so much ..But if i stand here and wait till some one come to me for rp then i stand here next year and the year after crying that gor is death and that i have no rp ..
Tanesia (tanjalesbian): you welcome ..i been here 2 days i joined here as spy i blown my cover up because i seen this EN knows a lot of gor i have learned in this 2 days more then i have learned in other tribes
Ludmilla Lunasea: Well, honestly, I’ve just joined Gor and this tribe a week ago, so giving a comparaison is pointless. They welcomed and accepted me easily, i’ve got RP, even if my English is rather basic and i’m far from being a pararoleplayer. But my experience is so limited that i’m probably not the best reference you can have.
bodi (bodicapagan): that you are willing to learn and to give your all is good thank you
Ludmilla Lunasea: You are welcome… come back in a month. If I’m still here, it shall be because this tribe is good 🙂
