In this segment we take a closer look at Generations in our Rebels and Reapers section!
Generations is This room is based loosely on the Sons of Anarchy series. This is the next generation. The kids of the older (role play) characters. The room is set years in the future. All the offspring are adults now, struggling to find themselves and see how they fit into a lifestyle they knew as a kid, now as an adult. Today I sit down with the amazing Kitten, to discuss this amazing room. 


The Interview

Describe your room, ie: the concept and main theme?
Kitten: It’s set in the Sutter-verse of Sons of Anarchy, but in the future. We don’t go into detail about what the exact year is. Many of the characters are the offspring of our characters from previous rooms, some are part of the club while others are just trying to find their way. It’s based in the Pacific Northwest in a small town Kaliko and I made up called Nowhere, Idaho. It’s not club based room, anyone is welcome to join and play. We have of course the club members, dancers at a local bikini dance club (idaho is strict on nudity), waitresses, cops, an attendant at the laundromat… Anyone is welcome.

What kind of storylines go on? Also, can anyone get involved?
Kitten: Anything really can go on in the room. It’s a small town, so it’s got its quirks. One storyline is a returning daughter to the club, a guy who’s trying to find out what happened to his father, and we have a serial killer that the local detectives are just learning and finding the bodies.

Are character sheets required?
Kitten: We do ask if your character is going to be staying in the room that you give a small sheet. It just asks basics, and you’re not required to have a massive bio. Other characters such as those playing their chars from other Sons rooms but in their older versions don’t have to fill out a sheet unless they’re going to make the room their elder versions home.

What do you do when you have a newbie come into the room? How do you help them learn about the world you’ve created? Is it easy for them to jump into storylines?
Kitten: The room is basically contemporary. There are no powers, no hierarchy. It’s self-explanatory if in your real world you approach someone that has a patch on their back, how would you respond to them? A cop? Ordering at a local diner? We’re happy to give a hand in helping someone learn what they need and help them figure what they’re looking to play within the room.

How many various character types are in your room?
Kitten: A lot lol. You’re not going to find a movie star or the next Bezos unless they’re vacationing. The location is literally bumfuck nowhere, the population maybe a little close to 1000.

Is there a set structure for powers, or is it free form?
Kitten: No powers. I mean you can play a wiccan character, but it’s got to be as it is in real time, you’re not going to have lasers shooting from your fingers while you hover in the air.

What is the main thing you want everyone to know about your room?
Kitten: Come in have fun. If you play SOA this gives you a chance to give a character an “epilogue” without having it affect your play in another room.

Digital Playground Mayl Edition by Rivers

A Long, Strange Trip

By Rivers

When I was a kid my grandparents had a Super Nintendo – and that thing was the shit. That is, until my grandfather retired and discovered the Tetris / Dr Mario combination game. Three rounds of pick-your-poison and this guy would beat literally everyone literally every single time. Witchcraft, I tell you! And upon whooping your ass, while you stared at the TV in confused disbelief he’d cackle behind you “skunked ya!”

I was ‘skunked’ many times. Every week I gnawed on bitter defeat until I finally honed my skills and unleashed with my first victory. It became personal. And it’s still personal. Tetris and Dr Mario. Every once in a while during a holiday dinner someone will say “oh we should get out the video game” and every single time I take the liberty of destroying my entire family, my child included, in honor of how my grandfather used to torture me.

This said, you can imagine my incredible delight to find Tetris Effect: Connected on Xbox Live. I sat down all smug, chose expert, decided I’d have the entire game beat in a weekend and abruptly got my ass handed to me. This Tetris is not 90s Tetris – and it is not designed for those that are easily distracted. I found out that I am easily distracted! 

The game is beautiful. The colors are stunning the music is great, the things that happen in the background are so pretty. The themes are gorgeous and sparkly and my controller batteries died SO many times from the bass of the music being pulsed through it. While the pieces and premise of the game was simple and exactly how I remember it, there were new challenges in how the pieces spun (to distract you) and how the backgrounds evolved in these crazy light shows (to distract you) and how the music was like Cirque du Soleil (to distract you) and how the speeds arbitrarily change (to fuck you while you’re distracted).

While the game does still have the multiplayer competition that I once reveled in, it’s honestly more enjoyable playing solo and going through the journey. You kind of get lost in the music and imagery, and it’s interestingly soothing despite the intense frustration at certain levels. Nothing is ever as satisfying as a series of ‘Tetrises’ and clearing a level you get stuck on is absolutely gratifying. 

Eventually, I found the end of the long, strange trip with a 90 point achievement for defeating all the levels. I was kind of sad, and stared at the screen in disbelief for a few moments. My only complaint is that it seemed there should have been more levels. 

I can imagine this wouldn’t be a game that everyone would be intent to play, especially start-to-finish. It certainly doesn’t have the action or complexity of games we normally talk about. For me, however, every time I played it brought me back to my grandfather’s living room and furiously pounding buttons only to get my ass kicked. It was a direct connection to one of my fondest childhood memories and I love how a reimagined classic game can have such beauty and interest and still stir up all that nostalgia. 10/10.

Revealing Roleplayers By Smurfy

In this segment, we will be interviewing roleplayers at random. This is a way to get to know the roleplay community, find out what makes them tick, and delve a little into the raw meat of what makes roleplay special to them

For this interview, we will be delving into the mind of none other than the corgi girl herself- Detta




How long have you been roleplaying?


I feel old with this question. I started when I was eleven, good ol’ AOL Chatrooms were good for something! Who knew it’d lead me down this path. So almost fifteen years. 


What’s your favorite Genre?


 Honestly, I’ve not yet found one that I don’t like. However, picking one thing from a Genre would have to be Star Trek. Great show, chaotic to rp. 


What’s your favorite storyline you’ve ever done?


Honestly, I have been around for too long, with too many great writers to have just one favorite storyline. It feels like a disservice to those that I’ve played without throughout my ‘career’ to just choose one. 


What makes a good roleplay partner?


 Ooooh lordie, this is hard. Honestly, there are a number of things that I find to be good, but sites like ReVo, are relatively new to me. I’ve only been here like maybe a year, I came from a whole different series of places that I’ve played, and the things there, do not seem to be the same valued things here, if that makes sense. In my long ‘career’, I’ve liked, and favored, someone who can write more than a sentence or two. I know there are people out there who can write and do like and enjoy writing one liners, as they’re called, but for me, it seems inadequate. There is no content, nothing to really grab my attention and make me feel the character or the scene. I personally like the details you can put into a scene. Telling me something as trivial as they the character is biting their nails nervously, makes me question, why’re they nervous? So it creates this whole additional rabbit hole of curiosity based on the character and the scene, and it can really bring out so many amazing things. 


If you could bring any character back from the dead, who would it be and why?


Honestly, I don’t know. Players out of retirement, would be more apt, there are a ton. Like my husband…


The most important question to a roleplayer of course… Who is your all-time favorite character you’ve ever played, or watched someone else play?


Again, too many favorites, however, my favorite to ever play and watch someone play was… Pain. A character of my husbands who was twisted and would do the most horrible things, and got off on it. I can still think back to some of the scenes that he wrote, that I read, and shudder. They say everyone in this world has a place in their mind, a truly dark and evil place where the worst of us hides, and this is where he holds Pain… it’s truly beautiful in a frightening way, and now I sound coo coo for cocoa puffs. 

Hang Around: SoA

Interviews with Tatiana

This month I sit down with Addiction to discuss his two SOA characters, Kaleb and Tyler who are members of the new SOA room, Vegas.  He talks about what will be happening there, where his chars were born and something about a Suck Bang Blow bar.  It’s hard to concentrate when Kaleb is so damn hot!  fans myself  Don’t forget to check out Sons of Anarchy:  Vegas when you have some free time and maybe bring a char to play there.

Until then, enjoy the interview!

1.)  What exciting things are you expecting from the new SOA room, Sons of Anarchy:  Vegas?

A return home. Vegas has been a staple of SOA roleplay for some time, and became the home for both of the guys after they started in Long Beach. We’re looking forward to rebuilding the club after it was all but decimated, other factions moved into the strip, and new blood taking over from the old. There’s some lineage there, and it’s all going to come into play.

2.)  Tell us about your two main characters Kaleb and Tyler  Give a brief history of both.

Oye. Trying to sum up over a decade of Rp on both.

Kaleb was born into the club in Scotland , the son of the President. As a young man He wasn’t sure that he wanted to be there, but He had to do what He did growing up in the club and on the streets. The Club’s issues with other factions and the war with a sister club in Ireland put him into the fray. Growing up He learned the ins and outs of the club and stuck with it until the girl he fell in love with was caught in the crossfire and killed. From there He took up the call to head overseas to Long Beach and the States where He’s been ever since. He’s traveled across the states, through various charters He’s filled multiple roles and been through multiple encounters with various factions and now has heeded the call back to Vegas.

Tyler Stevens grew up learning about the club in the west coast through racing. Drag racing. Then motorcycles. His family owned the Suck Bang Blow bar in Long Beach that’s been through hell and back where He sang with his band for years as his passion. Never a famous artist or performer himself, He was known for writing quite a few hits for famous artists, never giving up his passion even though He decided to take on a different life. Once patched in, He became a road captain in Long Beach and traveled with Kaleb and others through various charters. He was the first to greet Kaleb when He arrived from Scotland and the two have been inseparable ever since.

3.)  Your two main chars are heading out on a road trip, where would they travel?

California. Up the Coast. Which is where they went after eventually returning to Long Beach and the OC (Orange County) which got decimated. They weren’t sure if they would retire, go nomad, or what was going on. They just needed a break after what felt like a lifetime of bullshit. Best choice they ever made. The west coast is where Ty was born and raised and Kaleb was always fond of, where both of them found their heart and their soul.

4.)  If your characters could have 3 songs to describe their personalities, what 3 songs would that be?

Tyler Stevens:

Shinedown – Sounds of Madness’

Kid Rock – Cocky

Nickelback – Next Contestant

Kaleb O’ Farrell:

Shinedown – Simple Man

The Heavy – How you like Me now?

Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven

5.)  What year was it when you were introduced to SOA rp? Who introduced you and what room/site was it at?

Oh, man I can’t remember the year, but it was damn near a decade ago. I first walked into SOA following Slick and a few others brought me over into the original Long Beach years ago.

6.)  Who was your very first SOA character? Do you still rp him/her today?

Tyler “Hollywood” Stevens was my first original SOA character and I still play him to this day. Which in hindsight is interesting because SOA was one of my “secondary” roleplays way back when and has become my longest running character.

7.)  Did you watch the tv series ‘Sons of Anarchy’ before rping SOA?

It was actually about the same time, maybe towards the end of season one. It had just began getting popular (I mean season one I felt was pretty slow) but everyone was jumping onto it even though there were only a few rooms open at the time. Long Beach was one of the first  and we all kind of navigated there.

8.)  Someone is interested in rping in the Rebels and Reapers section, what advice do you have?

Just do it. Jump in there. Don’t be afraid. You don’t have to be a patched member, a sweetbutt, or anything else. You can be anyone it is that your heart desires, and just have fun. Though it’s often seen as ‘difficult’ to get into because most people think that its just about the “guys” and the club. But it’s not. It’s about so much more than that. Anyone and everyone can get involved, and they should.

9.)  Are you looking forward to participating in the rally this summer?

Yes, absolutely. Every year, it’s everyone getting together and just having fun and letting loose, which is what it should be about. I love the rally because we can just let loose and have fun, be “ourselves” but also just not worry about things, meet new people and roll with things.

10.)  If you could change one thing about the Rebels and Reapers section, what would that be?

That we communicate more, work with the chapters and charters, to get together and do more interroom roleplay.

Question Submitted by Shy

What if aliens are searching for us too, but… then we’re aliens also!?

Response by Smurf

There would be double penetration anal probing going on, and I’m just not down for that much ass sex. So, of course that would start a war between who gets to stick the probe in whose ass causing mass amounts of destruction, and casualties … I’m in. May the one with the biggest kink win. 


Question Submitted by Anonymous-

What’s your favorite thing to do?

Response by Smurf


That’s British:The TV edition – with Russ

Sometimes our TV gets a hard time compared to US, you have high quality actors (and when you don’t, you pay ours boatloads more to come to your shores and don an American Accent), Production values and the streaming services give access to even shows that we’d never have seen here otherwise. I love a good TV show, be it a comedy (I love Arrested Development and Scrubs) a Drama (The Wire, Breaking bad) or anything else. But there are some cracking British TV shows, in the past we’ve had Fawlty Towers, Monty Python, and plenty of Dramas that aren’t coming to me as I write this. But lately we’ve had some really good shows too. So this week I’m highlighting a few I really like, if you can track them down, give me a comment and let me know what you think. 

I have not included some shows that are highly rated, but I am yet to see such as Fleabag, the crown, Downton Abbey and Line of Duty, but I have these to watch and if off interest to people I will do a review of them. 

Honourable Historical Mentions:

Brassed Eye

Red Dwarf

Doctor Who

Mighty Boosh

The Trip

Gavin and Stacy

The Inbetweeners

The Office

Only Fools and Horses




What happens when a recovering Alcoholic American and a dysfunctional Irishwoman have a one-night stand, get pregnant and end up spending the rest of their lives together? TV Gold that’s what, this show is poignant at times, very dark and always very, very funny. It also features Carrie Fisher’s last role (she filmed this after Star Wars, I believe) and has a lovely tribute for her. 


Idris Elba’s break out role. As detective John Luther who ends up joining forces with a psychopath serial killer to catch some truly horrific killers. A true anti-hero, Luthor is always on the verge of a breakdown and the show is truly scary and intense (I’ll never get a night bus again) and the twists are always hard to predict. 

Planet Earth:

David Attenborough is a national treasure and this series of Natural History, is stunningly filmed showcasing just how beautiful and huge this world is. It is truly eye-opening to the impact we have on the world, and it is captivating TV. 

Peep Show:

A brilliant comedy looking at a dysfunctional friendship of two flat mates. So far so predictable right. The beauty is its shot with the inner monologues of the characters and the camera perspective is always through the eyes of one of the characters. It really is like you are spying on their lives. And it redefined how comedy was shot here. The two main characters are brilliant and has a truly great supporting cast too. 

The Thick of IT

Before he was Dr Who, Peter Capadli was Malcolm Tucker, spin doctor and foul mouther machine of the Government trying to keep the clusterfuck of ministers and civil servants from constant fuck up. It’s so well written and seems so implausible, but it really does show the flaws of the government here. It’s full of memorable characters and remains one of my favourite shows and a show that still feels current. 

This is England 

If you do not know who Shane Meadows is, you should. A brilliant filmmaker, this series picks up where the film left off, looking as life for a group of characters between 1986 and 1990. Think Trainspotting in England. It will make you laugh, make you cry and challenge you, it tackles all the social issues and is utterly gripping because of it. Not just one of the best British Shows created, I’d argue it’s one of the best series ever. Period and very, very underrated. 

The Great British Bake off

Literal, a show of people baking cakes. It shouldn’t work, but it does. You root for people, you get invested and suddenly think you are an expert on baking. It’s great escapist TV. 

Black Mirror

Full disclosure; I love Charlie Brooker. Since he was a columnist and an hilarious one at that. He is angry, ranty and cutting. He’s how I wish I was. This show is similar to the twilight zone, with five seasons now but a different cast and plot each series and some great casts. It’s proof that Britain can do deep, thought-provoking and engaging sci-fi, even lacking the US budgets of shows.
