An “alt” or alternate account is easily set up in SL and works alongside your main or primary account . There can be many reasons to get one. I use my alternate account as a piggy bank for my Lindens and as a backup for my main account. I just wish sometimes that I could transfer inventory like clothes from one avatar to another, but that only works for a limited number of “transfer“ clothes. Like ,why is that? Both accounts are mine and I have paid for the clothes , yet I can’t transfer them. idk.
Perhaps you need a change…lol… and want to try something different, then a “alt” account can help you do that. Ok, like another thing is the abuse of “alt” accounts in roleplay and in panther tribes, we discuss that too……
One of the coolest things about SL Gor is the chance it gives you to be somebody else. What would your life be like if you were a Free Woman in a city? Would it really be fun to be a slave in a busy tavern? Could you be a successful tribal leader?
The ease with which you can become a different person carries some moral risks though. How often have you committed some blunder in real life, and wished that you could turn back the clock and start over? In SL Gor, you can do just that and many players do.
Tired of being reminded that you were once a slave? Wish you had been a panther girl right from the start? No problem…just make an alt…..and start over.
An “alt” is an alternate Second Life account. It’s easy to make one, just go to the SL website and sign up the way you did when you created your first account. You can even give them the same RL information; you may have up to five SL accounts, by Linden Lab’s policy.
Using an panther girl alt to join other tribes by joining as a pledge is wrong, so please don’t do this. I know it’s tempting to use an panther girl alt as a spy and there are some players that do this. Using their panther girl alt to aid their main in an escape or trading their main free, it’s just silly.
Also please don’t use your alt to create drama. Sometimes a panther alt will be used to try to tempt one’s free companion into infidelity, or to harass a another player over and over.
Second Life is a virtual world, but it’s full of real people. Our interpersonal relations are just the same here as in RL. No difference. No difference. In this respect SL Gor is not a game, it’s another part of life, and we can use it to become better people, or worse.
