Mermaid Treasure

There are many Role-play societies in Second Life, another well-known is the Isle of Dee.  Merthyn Vintner is part of the Dee’s Mer society and he was kind enough to tell the Torch SLG a bit about Merrow or Merfolk culture:
How did your culture come into existence?

It’s a bit early in development to say that we have a culture as such.  We have had a growing number of mermaids and a siren or two over the past weeks, but they need a leader, and a  very promising mermaid leader had to leave a while back, for RL reasons.   Consequently, our mer population comes and goes.  Mer have their own land underwater, with rocks and ruins and such like.  Visitors like it a lot.
What are the main characteristics of your culture?

The mer live in the sea, but can grow legs and walk on the land, although this has an injurious effect on them, and they cannot stay out for long.  They are generally suspicious of humans at the very least, and prefer the company of elves and other such elemental creatures.I  Following folk lore, they sing to lure men to them, and the men cannot resist.  They may use them for their own pleasure, but they are invariably thrown into the sea – or crash their boats into rocks – so that the men are found washed up on the shore in various states of health.  We are encouraging our mer to develop their own RP scenarios, and to arrange mer events (even OOC – like dances).
What tips do you have for newcomers that want to be a part of your culture?

Play according to the folk lore!  There is a wealth of possibility there.

If there is anything else you would like for our readers to know please write it below.

I’d invite those with mer tendencies to come and try the waters of Dee, and join the group, to find out, and to help develop the culture fully.
