Guardian de las Sombras (G&S) is an interactive system designed to enhance role play in Second Life. Based on the popular Gorean themed RPG’s, it is now used widely amongst many role play realms and for individual farming fun.

G&S offers a series of articles intended to enrich Role Play. The structure of the system simulates a production model set in Gor and designed to enrich the role play of trade / exchange between players or groups of players.

This system is divided into three main parts.

Objects Main (Main-Objects):
These are items that can be purchased for $lindens at the official G&S store or on the SL’s Marketplace web site. These objects can interact with each other, with avatar and other objects, and are responsible for creating objects of role-play (RP-Objects).

Objects Role-play (RP-Objects):
The objects generated by the system (grain, meat, iron, gold, etc.) and the currency (Coins [G & S]) have no real value outside the RP, they are just a dummy value in the game. Once one of these object is delivered to a player, they are then the owner, and as such can do with it whatever they want, provided it meets the TOC of Second Life.

The system is based on the following fundamental pillars:
1 – All objects are unique, so they will not copy and transferable.
2 – All rp objects have no real value, are ephemeral, can deteriorate and disappear and only make sense in the role-play.

You can use G&S to enhance your SL role play sim, for your own personal fun farm or set up your own SL G&S business. There are a variety of animals to raise and breed  for food, wool, milk and other products, fishing and tuna tournaments. Grow grain to feed your animals, cook or make paga and beer, grapes and ka-la-na to make wines. There are many other crops to grow, harvest and cook the recipes available to prepare meals or ferment to make drinks such as wine and beer. There are mines for iron and copper to craft farm tools and weapons as a blacksmith, grow trees to cut down and create fences, buildings and furniture as a carpenter. Basketry, pottery or spin wool to make thread and weave rugs or tapestries. You can become a Winemaker and create different types of wine, look for the most precious flavors and the most exotic nuances, combine them and create a unique wine. You can achieve mastery of “barrel maker” that lets you design your own barrels. You will have the option to create your own Appellation of origin to take your exclusive wines to the highest recognition.

The currency of G&S is gold and coins which you can mine for and convert the ore baskets to gold chests or coins to buy and sell your products. Trading is encouraged for interactive role play to acquire what you do not grow yourself.

The recipes to cook are eaten to add energy to your RP-Hud needed for the tasks you do using the system eg. caring for fields and plants, crafting on the blacksmith and carpentry equipment.

Originally designed for a Spanish Gor sim, the names of animals, food and drinks are Gorean. G&S RP items and products have a combination of Spanish/English names  and will translate to English when rezzed inworld. Most animals and equipment have a language option for Spanish or English on the menu. Google Translate is a handy internet tool to use when you do get stuck with the Spanish/English names of items or message instructions.
