If you’re not sure you understand what information we need for a good application, check out the following examples. (These are not real people. If you like any of the ideas, you’re welcome to adopt them.)
Example 1: Human non-convertee
Everyone - basic scene information Second Life username: sample1 Character name, if different: Laura Gomez Gender, species/type, other relevant physical characteristics: human, female, Latina, realistic proportions, tall and muscular General personality or attitude Toward free persons, generally friendly or professional depending on the situation. Not easy to push around, but treat her with respect and she'll do the same. Toward slaves or androids, if they cooperate and do as they're told, she's usually civil. But she's perfectly willing to use any means necessary to get an uncooperative slave in line, from harsh language to severe pain. Not all that smart. Fascinated by technology, but doesn't really understand it very well. How do you feel about scenes involving sex or sexuality? If you are comfortable with sexual behavior, with what types of characters? Not that interested in general, and I don't expect her to have sex during this scene. If there's an android she finds attractive, she might play with it a bit while off duty. Prefers masculine or androgynous to overly femme. Everyone - Logistics Which weekend(s) are you available? Either one! What times of day do you expect to be available? Probably two or three hours each day. Usually between 2-6pm SLT, but if I'm needed at a different time I can do that. How likely are you to participate in the event, if it's held at a time when you can attend? Almost positive! Conversion assistants Who are you? Why are you participating in the event? I'm muscle working for the slaving company. I was one of the people assigned to bring the slaves to ACS and keep them in line until they're converted. What skills do you bring to the event? (This includes real-life skills, like programming CCUs, locating hair and skin based on a description, and making slave characters feel like slaves; as well as in-character skills like keeping slaves in line, modifying robots, or performing conversions.) Real-life skills: I like to think I can make slaves feel like slaves. I know how to use lots of RLV devices. I'm okay at shopping. Oh, I'm also good at helping newbies figure out how to get around in SL. Character skills: Keeping slaves in line, mostly. Good with lots of weapons as well as unarmed combat. What kinds of things would you enjoy doing during the event? (Passive spectating will be discouraged, but there are lots of potential ways to participate.) I'm definitely curious about watching the conversions, but I'm also looking forward to disciplining slaves that might try to escape, and seeing how constructs are different.
Example 2: Neko slave
Second Life username: sample2 Character name, if different: Prrasa Gender, species/type, other relevant physical characteristics: Male neko. Black hair, fur, and tail, claws (usually retracted), human-like face. General personality or attitude Catlike. Telling me to do something is the surest way to make sure I don't do it. I'm pretty lazy, and would much rather have other people serving me than serve them. I'm nice to people who are nice to me, but my claws can come out any time if someone annoys me. Likes to cuddle, but would only be interested in sex with someone really special. Hate wearing clothes other than shorts. How do you feel about scenes involving sex or sexuality? As long as there's some play involved, especially D/s, I'm fine with it. I'm also fine without it. Not picky about partners as long as they write well - male, female, human, furry, demon, whatever. Everyone - Logistics Which weekend(s) are you available? Definitely 8/25-26. I might have a commitment on 8/18, but I can play on 8/19. What times of day do you expect to be available? On weekends, I usually log on around 7-8am SLT and stick around as long as I'm having fun. How likely are you to participate in the event, if it's held at a time when you can attend? Definitely! Who is your character, what do they look like, and why is nobody interested in purchasing them as a slave? I accidentally wandered into a war zone, and got captured. I'm not even sure who the sides were. They tried to make me into a slave, but everyone knows cats make terrible slaves. My hands and feet have been tightly bound to keep me from using my claws (hisssss!) What do you (the player) like about the idea of having your character sold to ACS, converted into a construct, and potentially owned by ACS as a construct afterwards? Losing control... getting forced to do what someone else wants me to, even while I'm doing my best to fight it. Having someone else be able to turn me into anything they want, program me to behave they want to, or even make me unable to move at all. Yum. What sort of construct would you prefer to be? Be as detailed as you like, but be sure to indicate which details are really important (i.e. things that will make you want to leave if they don't happen) and which are just ideas that appeal to you. (If there is more than one type of construct that interests you, feel free to say so, but be clear about which you would prefer even if you leave the decision up to me.) I have two ideas I haven't been able to decide between, so I guess I'll let you decide! But if I have to pick one, it's #1. 1 - An android that isn't a neko. Take away my claws and tail and free will and even my name. MUST STAY MALE, but everything else about my appearance you're free to modify. Make me as obedient as you want, program me any way you want (but I'm not very good at playing different personalities). But keep my original personality in there, aware of what's happening to me but unable to do anything about it. 2 - I like the idea of being turned into an inanimate doll, too. I'd rather stay a neko-doll in this case, but you can change that if you want. I hope someone will let me move now and then, but of course they can turn me back into a doll any time they want if I don't do what they want me to. What do you want to happen to your character after the weekend is over? I'm pretty flexible. If I like how things go, I'd like to keep playing the character. I don't think I want to be permanently available for public use - I'd rather be sold to one person, especially if I'm an android. I don't have anyone specific in mind. Do you already own one or more construct control systems? If so, which one(s)? Are you willing to buy a new one? I don't have one because I couldn't decide what I wanted. But yes, I'm willing to buy one. Do you use a classic avatar or a mesh body? If mesh, what type? Classic. Kind of want to go mesh, but I think I'll need help figuring out how it works. Are you willing to spend L$ on items such as appearance elements and clothing at my request? If so, how much? Sure! Maybe L$2k or so? More if I like what you want me to buy. And I'd rather you tell me exactly what to buy, rather than make me shop for things myself.
