A couple of days ago I visited Nagare – Home of the Blue Lotus Clan. A clan of Samurai, using the C:si Combat System, the system I have used for years and I still have all the Katana’s in my inventory!
I was amazed on how pretty this combat-sims looks..I guess times have changed regarding performance as in ..ahem..’my time’ most C:si combat sims were almost empty as to prevent lag and to avoid fighters having to rez too many objects – everything for a good fight!
Nagare has some pretty buildings and it was wonderful to walk around in the type of environment I know so well, it almost felt like home, but not really…My Katana-fighting days are definitely over and in the past and it has become a fond memory of good times and lots of fun.
You can visit this sim without worrying about the combat, Samurai clans in C:si will never just attack anyone – a fight can only begin when all parties agree and are ready, besides that you will need the C:si combat Katana and fights are always on a mat or a special arena, leaving enough room for visitors and explorers to walk around or: watch the fights (recommended if you go there and fighters are busy, do watch a few fights!).
