I gave up playing a slave for those reasons, Ciri... I have been called a princess slave when I made clear that I didn't log in SL to focus on mundane actions, like chores, that in my RP, I would focus on interactions with people (and not just playing waitress "Fetch me a drink girl - Thank you, you may serve others/return to your chores), when I stated that most of those chores would be considered performed by my character while I, the typist, was off, when I said that no, if a slaver/FG wanted to check if the chore had been done, it would be in RP with me and not via NC,when I said that slave girls had free time, etc...
The following screen capture illust well, I think the idea of what people make about storylines when it comes to slaves:
Yes, looks promising until you open the attached pic:
And there is not just that... Take a look at some training programs... Last year, I got almost a fight with the FG of some city, because I said that it didn't make sense to ask my -Gorean native and adult- character to learn the names of fruits, veggies and drinks....
Most of these trainings are a bulk of ordeals you must perform in order to become a trained slave, with mandated RP. In a sim, I have been presented like a challenge, the preparation of a meal. And I was told to write all details, make etc, not just a few lines. Meanwhile, in the city, I was inflicted an awful half line RP by a guy who didn't even take turn posting...
Because in these sims, the slave training is meant to train the character, but the player to play her role (and play it bad because the crap which is taught). The authors of sim rules and slave training programs consider that slave players are RP noobs and must be told that abbreviations like lol and smileys are not accepted in RP (you never see that in FW and FM rules...). In these people's mind, if you play a slave, you are only a real sub discovering Gor and role play, never an experienced and creative RPer who had read the books and is well familiar with the Gorean environment. It's just insulting.
And it's almost the same everywhere, many cities have insane slave laws which mix IC and OOC, often even not BTB (tours, having to kneel in nadu even in presence of FW just because a man is present too, private slaves having to work for the city...) and sometimes, mandated OOC behavior (like opening the sim slave group chat and greet your sisters...............)
Should I mention this recent (RP) sim where, if you play a FM, you're told that if you have partnered (profile) your slave, the sim is not for you?
I saw an advertising for a sim, recently.... I already frowned when I saw that the FW rules stated that a woman couldn't allow a man to enter their home save if relative/council member/protector or couldn't enter another man's home under same conditions (when I asked the sim owner, he told me that I should know about the -counching laws- cuz me, poor ignorant noob and him having been in Gor for 20 years, so, knew better than me that counching laws were all about FW couching with FM...... Lol!) and the (2007 nostalgia) slave laws have been a definitive turn off.
