Emperor : Emperor Galtier was rezzed 12/26/2009. But my very first avatar was rezzed 10/20/2009.
GWNews : What kind of enjoyment do you find here ? What was your best experience(s) or memories ?
Emperor : Well I love the amazing detail of this three dimensional virtual world and regret it took me so long to know of Second Life. I love how one can customize builds to such intricate detail. My best experiences and memories will be and are the many new friends I have found here. I have met seven of them face to face in real life.
GWNews : How did you launch your estate ? and what was your first purpose ?
Emperor : When Romanum was rezzed (the first Sim) on 12/27/2009, it was the first Sim I bought, a plain empty land mass, full Sim. I decided after only 2 months on Second Life (in 2 other avatars) to create my own world with my third avatar, Emperor Galtier. But Romanum was created because I love history and Roman history is of particular interest to many and Romanum was Second Life’s first gay oriented ancient Roman roleplay world.
GWNews : How do you organize your time in SL ?
Emperor : Unfortunately, as a two Sim owner (Romanum and Romanum II) and a business partner with the owner of Romanum III, I spend a lot of time taking care of Sim issues – Sim maintenance, dealing with resident issues, etc. Since I joined SL in 10/09 I have logged on to SL EVERY day without fail. Occasionally I let my hair down and just have fun.
GWNews : How do you appreciate the GA ? What did the community bring to you ? and what did you bring to the GA ?
Emperor : When the team approached me about the Gay Archipelago, I thought it was a great idea. First I support it because I support LGBT causes in general, but given Romanum’s gay orientation, I frankly feel the GA is a great way to bring exposure to Romanum. Romanum has participated in several GA Events and donated time and money to GA’s common achievements.
GWNews : What are your projects for the future ?
Emperor : Another Romanum sim owned by my business partner, Sebastian Montpenier, is on it’s way. It will be more maritime with more water, less land.
GWNews : What would you want to tell to GWNews readers ?
Emperor : All are welcome at Romanum. We are a roleplay Sim, but we do not have roleplay police. We emphasize friendliness and community. Come and check us out.
GWNews : Thank you for your time, Emperor. We wish you the best of success for your projects and enjoyment for your SL !
