Co-tenants – Limit 1 Tenant

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Attention: Co-tenants cannot share prims with multiple tenants. This is because it is impossible to know who you rezzed prims for, if you rezz for multiple people.
If a cotenant is added to a rental, he will  be removed as  cotenant from any other rentals.

If you think someone is cheating…

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

Please DO NOT TELL THEM that they are cheating – because it is unlikely to be.
If you are not sure about the game mechanics or you find that something is unfair or not working properly, please report it to Kora Zenovka (me), so I can tell you if it is  a wanted feature or an accidental bug, and I will fix it.

A note on foul language swearing and cursing.

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

A note on foul language swearing and cursing.

We do not intend to police to heavily the language used in Role Play here in Golgothica.
It is an adult sim with a strong sexual theme and therefore RP will inevitably contain heavy slang sexual references and outright offensive words.
We hope that all are adult and intelligent enough to not use extreme disgusting language out of context or to bludgeon a victim repeatedly with the same old words over and over to the point of showing themselves up to be  lacking in any word craft beyond these expletives.

One thing is however outlawed completely, be that IC or OOC.

There shall be no deliberate RL racist religious or minority group insults at all.
In fact, this being a fantasy land, there should be no need at all to refer to any RL groups ethnic or otherwise.

Because we will allow within reason the use of extreme language within the context of Role Play here, we will be forced to be far more strict about bad language used in out of character chat.

There should therefore be no need at all for any kind of swearing cursing etc in OOC local chat or the Golgothica chat group

If you get into an OOC argument do not swear at the other player, if you do so you will loose the initiative stoke the fire and make things worse for sure.

We will ignore any OOC logs of complaints sent to us if the player complaining has used bad language themselves to back up their argument in any way.

A note of caution here to players from different countries about using swear words etc  from another country.
Be very sure about how much offence you are causing before you use some words, they may be far more offensive and hurtful than you imagine.
Think before you act and speak, and save us all a load of grief and drama.

(This applies to all SGS SIMs, not just Golgothica).

Golgothica Imps

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Many players will be coming up to Imp conjuration age today so this note is to tell wytchs that they too can now conjour imps from the alter in the Wytch camp. Have fun

 

Important Imp instructions and Notes

What is an Imp?

Imps are fun idea we had to replace the idea of hunting dogs which were too laggy.
They are supposed to be used as a capture weapon to hunt prey.
They are NOT supposed to be used to grief other Predators and we will not be happy to hear if they are used this way, unless of course there is some kind of agreement between players.

How do I get myself one of these little pests ?

In Both castles in the temples and in the Wytch camp you will find a plinth with a skull upon it right click to sit upon this, after a few moments an imp will appear.
He will follow you for 20 minutes if he is not used and then return to hell.
To use him click upon him and you will get a menu of people in range, just click a name and he will attack them and if they do not kill him they will be your captive.
As I say please do not use them to grief other players.
These are fun items for capture.
Good hunting.

New Prey Option for Predators

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Due to many requests for a supernatural Prey option, it is now possible for Vampire, Demon, Werewolves and Wytchs to chose between Predator or Prey.

Clarification of Wytch role in Golgothica

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

Clarification of Wytch role in Golgothica.

Just a reminder from the game notes for those choosing the “Wytch” role here.
Notice that funny old spelling ?
Well that’s to indicate that, as it says in the game notes, they are bad ass Black Wytchs, or something along those lines, and not village protectors or community spirited earth mothers or anything nice and newage at all.
They are Predators, preying on the villagers just like the other Predator groups here.
So to Clarify
Vampire, Demon, Werewolf and Wytch are all on the same page as far as outlook on life goes here in Golgothica.
They are all signed up to an unwritten agreement to not tread to heavily upon the toes of the other races with whom they share this land.
It is of course fine to have feuds and combat between individuals, but there is no overall, Vampires versus Lycans, versus Wytchs thing going down.
I guess some will say ” Well where is dynamic between races then if we all love each other”
As I said again in the intro notes, this place is really not about a battle between good and Evil, its about what evil does to good when it has full licence to do so.

SGS v 2.01 – quick bugfix

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

There was a small problem for new setup of the HUD. I did a quick fix when we opened Golgothica, but then I released a stable fix this evening. If you have already setup your character in Golgothica, you don’t need this upgrade.

Golgothica is OPEN!

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

As announced, Golgothica is now open. There are notecards at the entrance, and please upgrade your HUD, meter and weapons in the game room.
Welcome to Golgothica.

So where the hell is Golgothica

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

So where the hell is Golgothica!
We had a simple decision.
Do we open with things still to do.
Or
Do we open with all done and dusted.
We thought about opening without the game for a day so people have a chance to look around and think about what they will make of the place.
But in the end, it seemed better to wait, so for once, all is finished.
We pause for a commercial from our sponsors:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbxxkwBQk_o&feature=related
We will be open 10am to 11am Saturday morning SL time

Golgothica – a bit delayed

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

As you might have noticed, the opening of Golgothica has been a bit delayed. Baal is ready, while I have a few things left. So please be a little bit more patient. I get an IM every 5 minutes asking when the sim opens 🙂 . I only have 10 fingers :). Right now we think it will happen tonight or tomorrow morning, but not much longer.

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’

 

New Golgothica opening soon

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011
New Golgothica

New Golgothica

 

New Golgothica is opening soon! If you played in Golgothica a few years ago, this new SIM has very little in common with the old one. Baal and I are working on the last few things before the opening. We will send out notecards/notices when it is time 🙂

Upcoming SGS v 2.0

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

The new major release of the meter will come out in 10-14 days. Not sure about the exact date yet. There are A LOT of improvements and additions.
Once the new meter is released, all the weapons will also be upgraded, and so most of the game scripts in the sim. It will be a busy day.
The only thing I won’t be able to upgrade are the items you currently store in your inventory. So please use them or lose them. Thanks!
