Fixing slavery RP: Wannabe slaves/slavers post your gripes

Postby Rekov Sat Jan 13, 2018 8:05 pm

Seeing as though slavery is somewhat central to Skullport's theme, I thought it might be useful to see if there is actually any interest in it, and if so, why that interest isn't being acted upon. If there isn't any interest, that probably needs to be a whole conversation in its own right, a part of the larger 'setting problem' the server has.

If you have or want to play a slave or slaver character, but something is stopping you, what is it? What other suggestions do you have?

Remove that element and focus on something with more substance? Like ...a Surface Hub.

You obtain resources in this server from murdering things. All crafting resources are mob drops. There are no mineable areas or botany or what have you for passive resource collection.

This boils slavery down to one of two things:
A. Shoe-shining RP where the slave does menial emotes for their owners until they get bored and stop playing.
B. Hot, hot slave sex. Haven serves this niche better.

If you use your slave as a gathering bitch here the slave has to be that level 15 ubermensch slave that we've all joked about before, wondering why such a person would be a slave. The crux of the issue is that telling someone to spend their free time doing either nothing or menial emotes is a difficult proposition. Other games with gathering systems have slightly better slave outcomes because you'll find some people take a zen in gathering things OOCly and are thus amenable to playing a slave and doing that for someone else's gain.
