Some of you may not know it but I am a Second Life Battlestar Galactica Role-Player since my start in SL. I always loved being able to play a character from the show and walk the halls of a Battlestar and even pilot a Viper. But the biggest problem in the past was all the political crap in the various sims and of course... the Power Role-Players. You now the type, the ones who can do EVERYTHING and demand you play by their rules. It's enough to turn people away from SLRP all together.... but there's hope.
Finally we have a new RP sim that's actually been a hidden secret for the last few years. The new Battestar Thesis 82nd Role-play sim is a breath of fresh air with great builds like Battlestars, Basestars and mesh fighters all run by a super friendly, fair and easy going staff. I have been hanging with them for quite a while now as they prepared to relaunch the sim and they are quite the fun bunch that don't take themselves too seriously and love to joke around. Yet they know their stuff when it comes to BSG.
With any relaunching of an RP sim comes the recruitment stage. This is where you come in! If you love the show as much as we do, are easy going and want to have a good RP experience or just make new friends then you'll want to come to the 82nd and apply TODAY! I'll be there and you may or may not see me piloting a Viper with my see through lace top on.... nope... not me *winks*. See you there!

Novatech Grid Wide Portal is a long standing tool created by Cheshyr Pontchartrain who is the owner and creator of the famed Novatech. All you need to do is rez the single prim "Light Pad", rename it, click it and set it to Gride Wide and public and presto... you are now linked to 10's of thousands of other Grid Wide portals throughout Second Life. It's that easy! Visit Novatech at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Gallifrey/128/89/58
New London Systems or NLS for short is a great way to network your brand name to explorers of the famous Dr.Who series fans. And yes... those fans shop! All you need is to pick a console room (low to high prim) and rez it somewhere in your sim. Follow the instructions and turn it on. Now your brand name is networked to over 10,000 other consoles all over the grid.... and it makes for a pretty cool entrance if I do say so myself lol! Check out NLS at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/TARDIS/202/211/26
Gate Network has been around a long time and is FREE to use. All you need to do is visit their marketplace page, get the free pack, unpack it and choose a gate to rez. Once you have it rezzed it's super simple to set up and again.... links you to a vast network of gates. Check it out at https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Gate-Network/2818085
Last but not least a subject some may or may not like depending on their brand name. Games..... second life networked games are very popular and bring in people who spend time in your place playing the game. There are many to choose from but a few of my favorites are the 7 Seas Fishing and BARE Fighting games. 7 Seas Fishing is a fun game you can set up and host anywhere. Fishermen can win all sorts of prizes you choose like rare fish and items. And you can even hold contests. Check out 7 Seas at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Flotsam%20Beach/40/114/22
My newest favorite is the BARE Fighting system. Now I must warn you this is an adult sex oriented fighting game. But OMG is it fun LOL! It's Free to host too! All you need to do is rez the little server cube and HUD giver and then log into their site to set up your area details. Your place will instantly show up on their list of arenas. I have a few bots set up for sparring and I get lots of traffic from people coming to beat up on and have their way with my sexy male and female bots LOL! If you want to get involved in BARE just come to my store for your FREE hud located at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Okeanides/44/115/22
As I said before marketing is about getting your brand name out there as much as possible. Each tool, tip and trick I give you may not render awesome numbers individually.... but combined they can have great results. Don't just stop at these either. Get out there and actively find new ways to network your name. If you find a cool idea send me a notecard and tell me all about it. I just may check it out and add it to my growing network. I wish you all the best in success!
