    Second Life: Myths And Reality

    I wouldnt call myself an expert on Second Life - just someone who has been member since April 2010. When you first join, you get the *newbie* avatar and can make all kinds of enhancements from there (see my pics for an example). Well, somehow I screwed up my avatar and I was...

    Sl Vampires...

    i started playing second life relatively recently, and quickly found my way into a clan of vampires {it's all a part of a game system called "Bloodlines," which i suppose is based on the rpg "Vampire: The Masquerade"?}  it's quite a bit stranger than what...

    I have not been on Second Life

    for long, but I love playing it! It's so much fun meeting new people and traveling to new places. By the way, I try to get some of my real world friends to join in the game. :)

    I Play Second Life

    I play a woman. It is allowed under the TOS, and the whole idea of Second life is be who you cant be. Many people are mythical beasts and such. I would cross dress if I wasnt so hairy. So I do it there. She is a lesbian, its is estimated 60% of sl lesbians are men. I am a...

    A lot of people are down on this "game"

    and for good reason, it does have a lot of people in there and they aren't all nice and pleasant. But with that having been said, I have to say I've had both great and terrible experiences there. Let me start by saying to those that don't know me, I'm a disabled veteran (not...

    Just Started Another Avatar...

    I've been off and on SL since 2007. I find that it lets me explore my feminine side so I play female characters. I always feel a little guilty about it though. I don't want to lie about who I am, but at the same time talking about RL kind of breaks down the illusion. So I'm...

    Not a Game :-)

     My second life is more affluent than my first lol. Being there is surreal & I've met so many interesting people/friends over the years. Sounds cheesy, but it will always have a place in my heart.
