New Golgothica – Important Notice

Monday, May 30th, 2011

We have been receiving a few IMs from people wishing to reprise roles and roleplays which existed in the last Golgothica.
We feel we should warn all players that the new Golgothica has NO CONNECTIONS AT ALL in either storyline or game play to the old Golgothica.
The New Golgothica is also NOT CONNECTED TO KOS.
This is not a re opening, this is an ALL NEW SIM giving us a chance to try out some new, at least for us, ideas.
The Sim is a COMPLETE RE BUILD with only the very basic layout of 2 castles and a village remaining from the old Build.
There are hundreds of new sculpts and thousands of new textures.
And most importantly, a new type of game play for us.
Of course we do not wish to stop players role playing their characters in whichever way they please.
In fact we wish to give people even more licence than we have done in the past to do their own thing in their own way.
There is no overbearing storyline telling people how to play their roles or boxing in your character, you want to be a Demon from the ninth level of hell, grandson of Satan himself ?
or a Masquerade Vampire with ancient lineage ported over from some other game? then please feel free to do so.
All you need do is fit your currant storyline into what you see around you.
And of course your play should be based around the new sim rules and objectives.
Most importantly, this is a CARP sim pure and simple.
All other game elements are fun ideas to back up this play and keep it interesting.
Here you are either Master/Mistress or slave/Captive, Dom or Sub.
Choose wisely.
There are no heroic avengers or police or knights here, beating up on the ruling Elite.
There is still combat, but it is very optional, and it is definitely not the Raison d’être for a players existence here.
We have decided to go with the adult rating on this one and we do not intend wasting the supposed opportunity and benefits of extra freedom that this  this gives us to be gross and  OTT when we feel like it. By far the most important element of SL is still the freedom we have here to do as we please, unlike most other commercial on line games and worlds.. This freedom cannot last forever, so we hope to make the best of it while we can.
There is a new Map of the sim here.

What’s new in SGS v 2.00

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

SUMMARY  OF CHANGES MADE IN SGS v 2.0 (simplified version)

Regular players will find quite a few major changes to the SGS game system in this new version.
The majority of these changes have been made based on the feedback we have received over the past year. In general they are to do with improving the system through simplification.

WEAPONS

CAPTURE

  • Preys can now use low-damage weapons in defense.
  • Collar and leash are built-in. Predators may leash preys without authorization, while the permission will be asked for non-preys
  • The level of difficulty will translate in number of hits (visible on the prey meter)
  • If multiple predators go after the same prey, the counter will not be reset
  • Bumping as a method of capture has been removed. Capture weapons will be used instead.
  • Some groups/races can be defaulted by us to be ‘Prey’ or ‘Predator’ and you cannot change that. Check on the webpages to see which ones.

HUD

  • Age increments after 30 minutes in the sim. Read more here: http://community.socionex.com/sgs/meter/age/
  • “Inventory” has been added. Find out more: http://community.socionex.com/sgs/hud/hud-inventory/
  • “Setup” allows you to switch between all species/races
  • You can see the amount of money you have in both cash and bank in your HUD
  • You can minimize the HUD by clicking on the top-left button.
  • We will assign a default combat mode to each group, but you can easily change it from the ‘Setup’

SKILLS/INVENTORY

  • No more items to pick up when you signup for employment
  • All items are now ‘virtual’ and stored in the SGS database.
  • To find out what items you got, click on “Inventory” on the HUD or browse your web profile
  • Items can be either sold with the gesture “/sell”, or used with the gesture “/use”.
  • Based on your level of skill, you will get 1, 2, or 3 items for each time you signup.
  • Added ‘blood’ skill items as well.
  • Max 20 items in inventory. Expiration is 2-3 days for all of them.
  • Find out more: http://community.socionex.com/sgs/hud/hud-inventory/
  • And about individual items: http://community.socionex.com/sgs/hud/hud-inventory/item-types/

STAMINA

  • Added stamina and removed mental % and ethos %
  • Stamina will automatically increase when your avatar rests. Running, jumping, swinging a weapon etc will decrease your stamina during fight/capture.
  • If stamina is zero, then your avatar will freeze and stop for a few seconds. When you stop, then the stamina goes up again, and you will start to recover.
  • Max stamina is assigned to each group (prey groups may have less stamina than predator groups. Find out on the website).
  • You won’t be able to eat or heal when your stamina is below a certain level (to avoid quick healing during combat/capture).
  • Find out more: http://community.socionex.com/sgs/meter/stamina/

RANK (was SOCIAL LEVEL)

  • The rank has now a maximum of 20 levels
  • 17 levels may be acquired with the age (1 for each 30 days of game play),
  • Other levels will be acquired with skills, leadership, backstory, etc
  • Read More here: http://community.socionex.com/sgs/meter/rank/

METER

  • The meter is really a collar now. There are different version of collars, but at the moment we released a gothic version, one for Females, one for Males.
  • No more cylinder shaped meter (that was still causing some confusion).
  • Attachment point is the SPINE, so please ‘Add’ this from your SL inventory, instead of ‘Wear’ this
  • Leash is built-in in the collar. To use it, click on VICTIM on the HUD, then click on ‘LEASH’

Good luck!

Knights (in disguise)

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I have been asked this question, so here is the answer.
A knight in disguise is equivalent to an off-duty ‘police officer’ in a way. Although he is probably dressed up in normal clothing and his behavior may be a little more loose, a knight is still a knight.  If he witnesses a crime , he may intervene, or he may not.  Up to the knight really.  Howver, unless you personally met him and recognize him, you will not know that he is a knight unless he identifies himself as such.

Head of Metropol Election

Monday, May 9th, 2011

We will run democratic election to nominate a new Head of Metropol. If you are interested in the position, please sign up as candidate in the Election Register located at the Metropol reception area.
Candidates are expected to submit a statement or equivalent to the local press to promote their IC campaign.
Candidacy are open until the end of the week.

Criminals and Desert

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I just want to remind you that if you commit crimes, you do agree in getting captured for your crimes and pay for them.
When you commit crimes and you are in the wanted list (you have ‘new crimes’ in your profiles). you may be arrested anywhere in the sim (city or not). The only exception is your group safezone, where you have an advantage, but anywhere else, you must behave like you are a wanted criminal. It would be silly otherwise. If you then are innocent, go to trial and prove it to the jury.

Harem Master/Mistress Election

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

Candidates are: xylimer Clarence , Jamal Tremmor, Markella Orchid, Aethos Resident, LADYAKIRE Resident, Dolorific Resident, ninxy Hansen, kijani Scorpio, Renickor Dartmouth, Azriel Mathilde, and Nobody (to choose NOT to have any master).
