Silver Sun Republic has been involved in RP-PvP coming up on 15 years since MMOs like Ultima Online, Meridian 59 and The Realm. As part of our ongoing commitment towards contributing to the communities in which we game we are unveiling a new service called "Life is Roleplay." Our main focus will be supporting the RP community in LiF, but we hope to offer a wide range of content to appeal to the larger online RP presence. Our hope is that we can support a heavy RP community in LiF that will draw people into the game and show them what immersive gameplay can add to an MMO.
Some of our services will include:
College of Arms
Resources and consultation regarding heraldry in a medieval context. Our goal is to provide a collection of graphics, background and information for those wanting to develop their own heraldic devices.
Do You Even Strategy, Bro?
A discussion on military strategy and tactics in a historic and modern sense. Many of our military service members hold various degrees and real world experience in dealing with military organizations and the application of doctrine in both real world and MMOs.
How To: Nation States, Kingdoms and Fiefdoms
A collection of resources discussing the benefits and dangers of building massive governing structures. SSR's involvement in the Kingdom of Hyperion and many other player run 'nations' and alliances has led us to learn many different lessons on the Do's and Dont's of large scale organizations.
Roleplayer's Roll Call
Trying to find the right group for you? Trying to find the right players for your group? The Roll Call let's you recruit other RPers and serves as a way to match players to just the right kind of guild to call home. It also serves as a way for similar guilds to meet up and build their own communities.
This is LiF
Up to date news and exclusive information with an RP twist to help satiate your curiosity for all things RP in LiF.
The Rusty Codpiece
Collections of stories and accounts in many different formats from blog posts to YouTube videos to help showcase the talent of the RP community.
We plan to support other communities including our very own ARMA III Life mod server that will serve as something else to do in the meantime while we wait for LiF to release. You'll find Mount and Blade mod servers as well to start building relationships in the RP community.
LifeIsRoleplay is our way of leveraging the years of gaming and real world experience that SSR has become well known for bringing to the gaming community. Our drive and motivation in RP is to add more to the games we play. RP has gotten a bad reputation over the years as being rigid and too controlled so we're out to push our flavor as a dynamic and practical system of gaming that creates immersion and doesn't hold guilds back being enslaved to some ridiculous set of rules.
If you'd like to contribute, please let us know! Our website will be up shortly, but now is the time to get in on the ground level and get involved!
