I joined the Locked in Lace forum this week and began my first roleplay thread. I wasn’t sure how it would go, I never did much in the way of roleplay and many forums out there have been become creepy, cliquish and/or spamtastic. I was very pleased to see that LiL is well maintained and has a very friendly longstanding core membership.
There appears to be two main games at LiL — the Lacy Place and the M&R Corporation. I haven’t explored M&R yet, but Lacy Place is a hoot.
The concept at the Lacy Place is simple: create a male character, then watch helplessly as he is turned into a girl. If this sounds like fun to you (you perv!), then go check it out. I started with a rather egotistical french character named Gaston, who quickly crossed paths with a Parisian temptress hellbent on Gaston’s utter feminization, teasing him with very high-end cosmetics and forcing him to carry her Louis Vuitton designer purse.
Like many forums catering to gurls like me, LiL is a community site run by volunteers. Unlike many forums, it’s not overrun with 911 conspiracy trolls, athiests who want to disprove the Bible, community organizers, and other killjoy maniacs. A very nice gurl named Glenda invited me to post a link to my pretty pink pavillion, and this has resulted in a nice influx of new visitors (*waves happily to new visitors, and gives everyone a complimentary sugar cookie*).
In summary, I am having fun there, and for a grouch like me, that is saying quite a lot.
