Georgian London in Second Life
Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen
Welcome to Georgian London in Second Life
The aim of this role-play is to provide a wholesome and cultured experience within the eighteenth century. Set in a small part of London, we welcome you to explore the area, mixing with artists, actors, and all the social classes as we cover the historical events of the era.
The year is 1745 and London is at the centre of an ever expanding empire of commerce and global trade. The country is on edge with the potential threat of a Jacobite invasion, with Bonnie Prince Charlie landing his troops up in Scotland. Aristocrats are at their grandest and keen to establish their own social spheres. This was the time when royals under the Prince of Wales, become more in touch with society in contrast to the King and the formal court. The Whigs maintain their power despite the death of the great oligarch Sir Robert Walpole, and the Prince of Wales is leading the opposition government in patriotic rebellion against his father King George II. Rule, Britannia! Britannia rule the waves.
