I've seen some posts here recently that were, let's just say...less than productive (or at least pushing against good etiquette). Below are some generalized guidelines for getting along more cooperatively. Most, if not all, of these points have already been addressed in some form over the years, so I'm really just bringing them all together for easier reading.
1) In-character blogs are posted here for exposition, but the information contained within them is generally not…Continue

I had planned to make this announcement through some rousing “Apocalypse Canceled” type of post, but that would certainly be anticlimactic at this point. Anyhoo, yeah…SURPRISE and Merry Giftmas! INSILICO is here to stay (again)! It just took a while to get all these ducks lined up. Suffice to say though, it’s pretty much official. We live on.
So what does this mean to you, as players? Well, it simply means that you and your characters get to live on too! This world won’t be ripped…Continue
((or the hardest post I've ever had to write, redux))
InSilico had a tough road ahead of itself after the loss of Skills and a two week lockout…specifically, a financial one. While we were able to float by on generosity, that cushion has run out. Sadly, our primary sources of income have never fully recovered. It’s not any one thing, but a combination of losses that have slowly eroded away: Malls are drying up, Skills’ MP sales disappearing, fewer long term residential…Continue
she didn't like shoes.
or maybe she did but she'd grown up without them to the point where she often forgot them. avoiding things that would cut open her feet was an art refined to subconscious level. headphones on, she wandered the darker sections of the city, comfortable and relaxed. less aware than she should be, but her quasi-corporate life had made her soft, something she'd only started to really understand.
she was not afraid of the dark
Harvesters. that was…Continue

After meeting with the Lindens in regards to InSilico's future, we have been able to come to a deal that will hopefully get us to a point where we can keep the sims open into the future, and with any luck...self-sustaining again. It's going to be a lot of work, and no doubt there will be some issues along the way. Yet this was the best of possible options to get InSilico open again soon...and within the control of those that have been involved with it for years.
I'm not too…Continue
Don't forget me.
Augmentations alter the human base condition in terms of physical and mental feats, the alterations can either be minor such as neural networks which remain common to mostly everyone to extensive such as full body prosthesis, The dangers implied with extensive augmentations depend solely on the nature of…Continue

In the setting of InSilico, personal privacy is obviously at a premium. Technology connects everything, and you never know who might be tapping in…
But does that mean there are no more secrets, or that information can’t remain hidden from countless prying eyes? In short, no. While it may be more difficult to stay under the radar these days, it certainly isn’t impossible. All it takes is a little critical thinking and a mind towards realistic RP.
Obviously there will be areas…Continue

The augmented world of today is a pioneered field of genetics and cybernetics ranging from commercial use to Military grade technology. Both to enhance human standards and exceed them exceptionally. The average human is usually augmented from birth and the technology is so integrated in the fabric of modern…Continue

In response to growing concerns that (baseline) humans were becoming subjugated to their increasingly augmented counterparts, Prof. Michio Grey, of the Center for Humanist Studies, proposed the following classification scale (also known as the Grey Scale) to…Continue

Recently the GMs have been fielding a lot of questions about mankind's presence in the solar system, how fast ships can travel, and how much we've developed in general. In order to help clarify those questions and provide players with a better frame of reference, I've compiled the following information based on established lore and RP. Please note that this information is in no way meant to be an extensive list of all that there is to be found in the solar system, nor is it meant to be…Continue
