I came across Another Earth while searching for something else on the SL forums. It was an invitation for anyone to come join their cyberpunk dystopian roleplay.
“Enter an alternate reality Earth where magic, high tech, cybernetics, the supernatural, and faith in the gods collide in Chicago, the City of Dragons. We are going to have live events, RP sessions, and book readings from the author, a quarterly fashion event, and so much more!”
Book readings from the author kinda jumped out at me, since I regularly attend the SL Book Club. So I picked out a suitable outfit and headed over to the slurl in the post.
The Arrival point was your standard collection of staff online boards, discord invite etc, but also posters of book covers (with links to their kindle versions on Amazon.com).
You get around to the various different locations in the region using teleporters in the form of yellow cabs, sitting on the one at the arrival point will give you a few destinations to choose from, I chose “Applebriar Square”.
It’s a nice spacious city build in different styles in different locations, from shiny corporate to more rundown dystopian feel. Applebriar Square is more the former, lots of shiny buildings and tech everywhere. I explored several of the buildings, making a circuit of the place, around on the roads and then back through some eco domes with connecting tunnels. This route took me back to the cab I’d arrived by, so I next went to Mitchigan Avenue.
This place is more of the latter style, cracked roads and graffiti alongside rundown houses.
As is usual for me when I’m doing my explorations the place was pretty empty, since most of SL is asleep. I was informed however that they have regular rp sessions on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 5pm SLT.
There’s plenty of lore created for Another Earth (a Books worth!) and the website gives you a brief glimpse of it, indicating that all races not just Humans from Trolls to Faeries to Orcs, Elves and Vampires can be played here. A dice roll system and detailed character stats system has been created and can be found on the site too.
I left plenty of the place unpictured for you to explore and discover for yourself, so go check it out.
