Welcome, Conall, to the club of those who consider that slave players have no need for a caretaker, are adult and mature people who just have to role play like any other role-player Smiley

Just had a strange thought of a slaver talking about the slave he is selling like a used car..

"What about this? Vintage red number?, Still in good condition, only a few scrapes..  Purrs like a dream and rarely lets you down.
Will always get you there in good time..
Had one careful owner that only used it after the weekly shop.

Now that would be my ideal slaver - used car salesman style, dangling the keys to my collar and saying "wanna take 'er for a spin?"  Cool

Note to Self: Never buy a slave from Severus. Used car salesmen are dodgy and will end up with some old hag who breaks her hip the moment she kneels.

....Actually, I'll take a string of them  Grin

I wonder how people would describe themselves?

What about this guy? he is a Killer bargain.
He is a very old model, one of the oldest in fact but don't let that fool you, he can still move faster than you would believe.
And as long as you own this rather antique model he is very good at getting you where you want safely, or removing any other obstacles in your way.

hmm....


She is a racehorse of a car - needs careful handling.
Very reliable when handled right, prone to be difficult when not.
Contains numerous hidden safety devices.
One 'careful' owner and one not so careful, dead, owner.

A few iterations of Port Kars ago, I took on the role of a Slaver.  I'll say it right now, it's exhausting, possibly the next most 'burn-out fast' role in a sim outside of Ubar/Administrator.

I don't claim I was perfect at the job, but I got a lot of compliments, had a large stable/kennel, and actually had to start turning slave players away and referring them to other slavers in-sim, because a dozen at a time was about the maximum I could realistically devote my attention to.

The things I always tried to impart when I brought a slave in to the stable were the following:
1) This is IC and not OOC.  I'm a player same as yourself, helping you fulfill your IC role through my IC role.  I'm not your OOC Dom though, and we're equals OOC.
2) You always have the right OOC to say 'No'.  Even if IC-ly it doesn't always make sense, it's part of my job to help make an OOC objection stick ICly in a reasonable fashion.  A Free can be arbitrary and say no when a slave cannot. 
3) I'll try and get you into RP, not away from RP.  I won't send you away on senseless chores, I'll try and teach what I can if you're new.  In return, help me by telling me what you're looking for, what you like, and doing your part to be proactive in reading, learning, and starting RP with visitors in-sim.

By and large I had some wonderful players come my way back then, Akane in particularly was a joy to have around.  There are of course the occasional trouble players, but I found that most slave roleplayers just want to be respected for their role, to be involved, and feel like they are part of the community OOC and IC.

I think the trouble as others have said though from a slave player's perspective is that it's extremely rare to have realtime roleplay cover the same ground that the books can provide.  In a sim, you're going to have wildly varying numbers of other players around you at any given time, trying to share your time and dialogue with them as best you can, whereas in a book you have exactly the number of people needed to illustrate a given scene.  It's just impractical to roleplay all the training and the scenarios, and the only (less satisfying) solution is to do a 'time passes' offscreen montage.

Anyhow, just my two cents having been in the role before and knowing both the pitfalls and expectations.
