1888 and the hybrid nature of Second Life identity
1888 a Kinky Victorian Sim
Imagination more likely takes what it knows and merges it with something else it knows to create something new, rather than having to work to make everything up from the start. In SL you often find Science Fiction genres with Victorian, Native American with classic Fantasy, furry with bondage, and other combinations creating the new from two existing neo-tribes.
1888 is a SIM themed around London of the time of Jack the Ripper. The Ripper RP is core to the SIM, though it really does not look like the East end of 19th Century London. What 1888 does is merge neo-Victorianism, which is very popular in SL, with bondage training. The two ideas have a strange affinity though you don't normally associate sex with the Victorianism the very fact you don't may make it work.
