One of my all time favorite things to do in Second Life has always been role play. The reason I decided to play Second Life were because of some of these role play communities. I remember early in my Second Life, I used to hop around between this role play community called Rocky Valley and another called Dead End. I met the majority of my current friends at Rocky Valley, this cool boarding school style city that really kicked started my love for immersive role play.
Now there are so many ways to role play in Second Life and while I may not spend as much time sharing paragraphs with others on some of these sims, I had to bring my love for role play to one of my newest venues, Bayside City in a way that worked for my schedule.
Life in Bayside is a role play series on my YouTube channel where I get to share what has been an ongoing story with Meela’s brother Graham since… 2012?! Sheesh, time flies. But yes, our story started in 2012. It spread across multiple role play cities and evolved over the years as their characters grew older. Graham and Meela have always been at odds with each other after a major falling out when they were just in high school. Graham led a pretty reckless life after. He landed a few stays behind bars and was a major emotional and financial drain on their family. But after his last release, they were able to open up about some things they experienced before things went haywire. The more they shared, the less they began to trust their father.
Now, Meela had always been a big fan of her father and was now looking at her father through a very suspicious lens. And it opened her up to some pretty shady practices on his part. After he pulled the rug from beneath her on one of her biggest business ventures for what he simply said was “for the best of their family,” she didn’t know if she was fueled by vengeance or a genuine distaste for the man. Graham came to her with their father’s interest in Bayside. The man was pouring his entire life’s work into attempting to acquire this city. So, when they saw the opportunity to go in and take it from him, they didn’t hesitate.
Now she’s allied with a brother she’s never trusted. she’s trying to live her life with her family and protect the fortune she’s built on her own. But life and this city keep throwing her curve balls.
Watch Meela’s Story unfold but even more fun, follow other Bayside City stories.
