A little info about yourself if you'd be so kind?
D&D RPG tabletop background from many years ago and fancied an opportunity to do something different.

PSA: A long winded soliloquy about why you are leaving Insilico and what is has meant to you, is really necessary? Does anyone really wish to read your meandering digression? STOP. THINK. REFRAIN. STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD and just leave.

My Second Life 'career' (lol thanks Genesis Valentine) involves fantasizing about being creator/contributor/admin in a sim influenced by Delta Green-esque Cthulhu mythos or a post apocalyptic dystopian Marvel-verse mash up in a similar vein to Old Man Logan, Excalibur, Earth X, Marvel 2099, Covenant of the Shield and so forth.
Do you have any roleplaying experience & if so please give a little background.
Over 20 years, more like 25 & showing my age of D&D (all the classics and everything up to 3.5 edition) RuneQuest, GURPS, FASERIP, Shadowrun (Gibson, 'the admixture of cyberspace and spare me elves has always been more than I could bear' - Totally agree).
Mainly concentrated on Call of Cthulhu in various eras as a G.M.

O.O.C: злодзей у законе (zlodzey u zakone); a foot soldier and standover man in the Insilico underworld.

I've chosen to do this as a blog post rather than a forum post due to forum posts being lost over time, here I have direct access and can edit more readily for what I envision will be ongoing, periodic contributions.  

What this is not…

Brief thoughts on the 'in world' explanation for Insilico's expiry.

Posted on November 2, 2016 at 12:30pm 13 Comments

While the in world explanation of why Insilico will no longer be is certainly interesting and provides a reasonable explanation for the sim's closure, to me I interpret as a somewhat 'Marvel universe of Realms shaking events' resolution. In the Marvel universe spectacular occurrences happen on a daily basis such as Earth invasions from alien worlds, super villains plan to assassinate the president, and so forth in order to drum up comic sales. Similarly TSR the then owners of the Dungeons…
