Welcome to Tombstone Arizona - Wild West Roleplay - Set in the period 1897- In the Territory of Arizona-
This SIM is a mature roleplay enviroment BASED on the desert town of Tombstone in Arizona .
It is rated (Mature) because of the Gun system we have here as well as the nature of a rough and tumble Wild West Town location complete with Saloon, Brothel and shadey Characters.
Children Avatars are welcome but no sexual themes tolerated in relation to child AVs.
Please feel welcome to take part in the role play.
We have provided for you clothing FREE at the entrance that you have just arrived in. This is the “Stage Depot” and one of 2 areas that “Gunplay” is not allowed. The 2nd area is the HOTEL. Only clothes and weapons of late 19th Century to be worn. You may choose to outfit yourself in the tradional “cowboy” look, the long modest dress for the ladies, or choose to outfit yourself in traditional Native skins. All are FREE. In town, you may wish to visit the many fine shops to expand your attire.
Fizzworks Gun Shop in Town sells the only available gun system presently valid in Tombstone. Features a draw mode and full HUD for ease of use. Stop in and pick up a FREE HUD. Always where the HUD IF you are planning to take part in combat.
To find Fizzworks look for the sign above shop ‘left’ Side of the street. (It’s also got a gun shop sign.) A Weapons testing range is provided BEHIND the gunshop where you may practice drawing and firing your weapon. RANDOM gunfire in town will result in your arrest and/or deteniton by the Sheriff or one of his men.
Understand that if you are a “fantasy” Avatar, your powers are NOT VALID or welcome here. You are welcome to hide this idenity with the FREE clothing and continue to Role Play as a HUMAN in the “Old Wild West”. We ask that Furrys dress accordingly. Expect to be given the welcome any traveller into a town would recieve.
Modern vehicles and devices are not allowed.
If you are speaking OOC (Out Of Character), please denote so by speaking in brackets. ((such as this)) [[or this]]. This is a role playing SIM, staying in character will help all of us to reap the full benefits as well as denoting OOC chat. Whenever possible, it is considerate to keep OOC chatter to IMs if it is only between two people.
You will find that there are some OOC (out of character) areas in the sim, clearly marked. Kindly follow any instruction that you recieve there mainly: While in an OOC area, DO NOT interract with Townsfolk engaged in Role Playing.
Native American Indians speak their own language. Native Americans may speak with — around sentences– to denote they are using their own language. Roleplay-wise unless you speak Native American you should not understand what is being said. Other languages can only be spoken if you actually write in that language (ie German, French).
If you wish to inquire more on this visit their area, where you will receive a n/card. DO NOT enter the Native American Village at the top of the mesa unles you are INVITED. If you have chosen the clothing of a Native because this is your Role Playing interest, you may wish to contact another Native on the mesa for further instructions on how you may recieve support from the local Tribes.
DEATH! By gun or Bow and arrow: If you are shot to 0 Hearts under FWC system you are considered to be ‘Unconcious’ and should remain LAYING ON THE GROUND for 3 Minutes before using revive.
Anyone around you may now kill you for example stand over you and shoot using EMOTES
((example /me approaches John and shoots him a couple of times to ensure he is dead.))
or rob you and leave you to recover later. **After Reviving you have to wait 30 minutes or you become officaly dead if you’re shot again**.
If you are KILLED you are considered dead in character for ‘2 HOURS’ and should remain umarmed if remaining in Tombstone.
That means you can remain out of character but not interfere with roleplay for the period and must wear a GHOST (flip title) Tag. It is generally a good idea to record your “TOD- Time of Death” along with the word GHOST.
Standard roleplay based emote combat is valid for brawls etc or story based roleplay, this means typing your actions ..with a few guidelines.
a) no one liner poor roleplay - ham it up, imagine you’re in a film!
b) no griefing - see below
c) no forcing actions upon another without reply - poor sporstmanship.
You cannot kill the UNARMED. Like most western films the bad guys even only shoot those with a chance to fight. Having a HUD on does NOT mean you are armed. You wear a HUD because you are prepared to ‘die’ (temporarily) in the sim whilst taking part in role play. Firing on the UNARMED can be considered RANDOM gunfire and/or Griefing.
The only way a person can be HANGED on the gallows is by Authorised Marshall and Sheriffs of Tombstone and that is after a fair court trial. If you are arrested or detained in Tombstone you have the right to hire an Attorney or have the Town appoint one for you. Getting an Attorney is a very good idea. It can reduce the size of a fine you are asked to pay.
If someone armed roleplays an encounter with you and you refuse to arm (draw!) you are considered surrendered , you cannot be killed but SHOULD COMPLY as you would with a real person with a gun to your head.
Note that Tombstone is NOT purely a combat sim, it is a WILD WEST ROLE PLAY SIM. . Shooting people without proper roleplay reasoning is not appropriate here and WILL be considered GRIEFING. You can expect to be banned from this SIM for 3-6 days.
Consent - If parties engaged in a roleplay wish to honour each other’s actions even if they go against rules above they can do so. Rules are only their to protect people’s play experience.
Griefing defined as actions against another that cause a real detriment to their playing experience. This includes the persistent harassment of others or roleplaying themes of a poor taste that offend that person. Also consult the SL policy definitions of Griefing and Griefers. Expect an Abuse Report to be sent to Linden labs immediatly. This includes harrasment to another using IMs.
Griefers will be banned from the SIM, City Admins are not ‘required’ to give reasons as this is a private place.
You will find that everyone is friendly and helpful to you unless you give them cause not to be.
Any problems contact MadMinxMag or Adrian Wise.
and finally, Enjoy your stay in Tombstone Arizona
The best part about this town, is it is populated by actual avatars who roleplay according to character classes they choose. Check out this conversation I wondered into, hilarious.
