City of Lost Angels

April 30, 2007

by Onder Skall

I originally sent this story to New World Notes, where it appeared in my column there. I was just finally reposting it tonight when I received the incredible news that CCS, the system upon which the RPG is based, is going open source! I’m going to send that in to the Herald I think… they’re always up for something timely…

Onder Skall reviews some of the Grid’s most intriguing games

There are a number of dark roleplay environments in SL, but City of Lost Angels (CoLA) is the queen of them all. The CoLA Combat System, a marriage of LSL and SQL, has created an efficiently run mini-MMO that packs the sim to capacity all day and night.

Now they’re planning a move to an island of their own (purchased as of the 10th according to the website) and things will only get more insane from here.

Seeker Gray reports from Suffugium 

Reader Evolver Dowren recommended that I stop by Suffugium. I’m very glad I did. I’m not sure why distopic builds attract me … I’m not, in general, interested in futuristic sorts of backdrops. Perhaps it is the similarities between this dark place and Victorian London, with the steam rising from the grates in the narrow shadowed streets, the sense of danger just around the next corner … ah, but I am dating myself, and that doesn’t do at all!

[odeo=http://odeo.com/audio/11257453/view]

I thought I’d come back with more multimedia. No idea if I’m ever going to do another one… let me know if you like it and I’ll be more inclined to.

God… listening to it now… you can so tell I caught a cold today. I spent a lot of time in the rain, unfortunately. Last week was a week off of technology, and I think this week can be a week off of … outside.
