One of the major
design decisions we had to make for our sex game Sociolotron regards an age old discussion in the
role-playing community: Permanent elimination (PE) yes or no? Most online
roleplaying games, adult games or not, don't have PE , because it is quite annoying for a player
when he looses everything he has build up during the past 6 month or so playing
a roleplaying game due to
an unfortunate accident. On the other hand, some say that PE leads to deeper
roleplaying experience because you play your character differently and for
many other reasons which we won't discuss here because it would lead too far. Since
Sociolotron is an adult game we should find an adult solution to the problem.

We have experimented with various ways to find a compromise
between these two situation and we have found a unique way to deal with this
First of all there is no PE when your character is eliminated by an NPC. Accidents happen and nothing is so annoying than trying to get away with a low health value, running into a bunch of punks and get whacked without a chance. So if an NPC eliminates you, you loose some of your money in the bank, you are re-equipped with standard cloths and weapons and transported to a neighbor room, similar to most not-so sex games like Age Of Conan and so on. Your belongings are placed in a box and dropped where you were KOed and can be picked up by you, or anybody else.
The situation is different when a PC (player character)
eliminates you. He can chose whether he
wants to KO you, just like an NPC, or really eliminate you in order to
eliminate your character from the sex game Sociolotron. In this case your character is
really gone and can not come back to
How do you create an heir? The answer is: naturally! After all
Sociolotron is an adult game. By having
sex, a woman can become pregnant. After 9 month of game time (which is just a
few days real time) the woman gives birth to the heir, which in turn becomes
a potential heir to her and the father. Since this is future
Pregnancy also creates a regular lactating state for the women
which lasts for about two years of game time and which is a handicap in some
situations, so not every woman will decide to become pregnant. You can use an
anti baby pill, or, if an accident happened, have an abortion, although this
may have a negative influence on your health and on your moral value. Being an adult
game, Sociolotron also has some positive usage for breastmilk within the game

Also keep in mind, that your character ages naturally and will retire
at the age of 70 years no matter what.
