I'm on a drug called Sindome. It's available, if you try it once you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.rnrnThe RP depth and supporting coded systems make other RPI games look like droopy eyed armless children.rnrnDetailed chargen? Winning!rnGrindless skill growth? Winning!rnConfigurable dynamic descriptions based on clothing coverage? Epic winning!rnRealtime combat system? Winning!rn3D virtual space and flight? Winning!rnLow number of incoming newbies? Weak.rnVehicles? Winning!rnPlayer-centric RP? Winning!rnHelpful playerbase and admin? Epic winning!rnDrugs and withdrawal? Winning!rnCybernetic and nanogenic augmentations? Winning!rnPlayer-installed vehicle, weapon and security upgrades? Duh, winning.rnrnMost of the time — and this includes downtime — this MOO is an F-18, bro, and it will destroy you in the air, and it will deploy its ordnance to the ground.rnrnYou borrow my character for 5 seconds, and just be like "Dude, can't handle it, @quit this bastard", because the RP is intense in a way that is, I don't know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.rnrnThat said, if you want RP beyond the bar-sitting asspatting you typically get around - you want fully IC, full-consequence RP and are a bit of a self-starter, that is to say you're willing to go out and do things to accomplish your character's aims through RP and in-character actions rather than be babied then check out this game. I've told friends stories about things that've happened to my character (and that my character has done) and they refuse to believe that it all happened in a game. They can't process it. I don't expect them to. You can't process this game without giving it a good hard play. And bring friends if you can - the more newbies are running around, the more newbies you have to contend with and the better the conflict. Plus the possibility of forming a gang. More RP for you means more RP for everyone.rnrnI originally started playing Sindome because I was sick of GMing Cyberpunk 2020 games and wanted to be a player for once. Was not disappointed at all.rnrnThe current staff lineup is made up of diehard cyberpunk/Sindome lovers who are consequently probably some of the most reasonable and level-headed people I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with. I would buy all of these people drinks without a second thought. Even the current 'regular' players bust their humps to get newbies involved in the drama. This is a really good time to get into it.
