Daniel Voyager has already spread the news that dieselpunk sim Seraph City will soon be closing. Inara Pey has informed people that Anita Witt’s full region art gallery of Dryland is closing down. Over at SLUniverse, Naseby Girl has posted that Realm Of Usk is closing down.
Realm Of Usk is a roleplaying sim and community, which is the sort of project that is dear to my heart so it’s disappointing to read that they are closing their doors.
I don’t know why Realm Of Usk is closing but I do know about the difficulties of helping a Roleplaying sim in Second Life make its own way. For some the tier is too damn high, for others it’s the amount of time managing the project or keeping content up to date.
Others find getting enough others engaged to help with storylines or management difficult. There’s a lot of work that goes into a roleplaying sim and community, much of it in the background and away from the roleplayers themselves.
