Second Life is rife with roleplaying communities like this one, the 1800s western RPG known as Tombstone. Isn't it lovely here? I'm not part of this game, but whenever I wander the sim I think back to my own tabletop roleplaying obsession, Deadlands.
Yep, I'm a tabletop gamer, or was, before graduate school and SL put a crimp in my social life. I especially loved the pre-D20 Deadlands with all it's weird mechanics. Whenever I hear Springsteen's version of Jesse James, I want to hop immediately into a game, slayin' zombies with my steam-powered stake-shooter.
Jesse James was a man who killed many a man
He robbed the Glendale train...
My first character in Deadlands was a big, quiet Native American nicknamed "Pronto." My husband played his short, wily kimosabe, Bill Lee. We played a closeted gay couple, and completely wierded out the rest of the poor gamers (they were such nice normal geeks before we came to the table). (And yes, my husband's a lovely guy to deal with my predilictions.)
Doc Eldritch's clothing is, hrm. Star Wars gothic -- o hey, maybe this genre is rightly called Firefly-esque. It's the ripped-up epic leather that would be in place in Van Helsing's cinematic past or Star Wars' apocalyptic future.
I bet you 10L that my leather vest is made out of skinned Ewoks.
