The tall towers goes far off into the smog, all I saw was cold, dark steel. A beeping in my ear alerted me that someone was near. I turned around and scanned the humanoid who just arrived per the transport beam. It was my beloved Iz M. “Do you want to get a snack at Buddha’s Bowl?” she asked. I nodded in reply. We walked the long metal road to Buddha’s Bowl. “Ni hao” the hologram said. “Ni hao” I replied. “Ni xu yao dian xie shen me?” the hologram said. My translator box beeped in my ear and the mechanical voice said “What would you like to order?”. I looked at the dispenser and then at Iz M, asking her “What would you like? I just got my creds today, so it’s on me.”
This is the second part of the Roleplaying In SL series, this time we are looking at the cyber world of INSILICO. Cyber is a mix between gothic futuristic settings and preapocalyptic techno-future. A sort of steampunk for the 50th century, so to speak.
I am playing an augmented human, a sort of cyborg-like being with bodyparts replaced with mechanical and digital devices to enhance things such as vision and hearing. Unlike cyborgs, augmenters still have their whole brain intact, except for maybe a few enhancements. They think like humans and act like humans, well, they are humans. Think Johnny Mnemonic!
The website for INSILICO tells more about this particular world.
