The Hidden Armies of Second Life

By one estimate from a leading member, roleplayers in the various Second Life military clans range in the several thousands, and count a couple dozen affiliations. (Some allied, others at a tentative truce, but many in fierce blood feuds.) Despite those relatively low numbers, the high attention to detail and the culture that's evolved around it is deep, detailed, and passionate. Via Nexii Malthus, here's a well-produced machinima from MJ Katsu that depicts one the leading militaries, Ordo Imperialis. Also: looks a bit like something Leni Riefenstahl would make, if the Axis was largely comprised of furries.

I don't think I've ever heard Conan the Barbarian and John Paul Jones quoted in the same speech before.

Kytec Switchblade

MJ did an amazing job on it. I'm in it a couple times, but extremely hard to see. I got chills the first time i saw it.

Arwyn Quandry

I'm tempted to show that to one of my military-game obsessed friends and say it's a new game they HAVE to get.

Robustus Hax

Excellent, excellent machinima.

BJ Tunwarm

Well done video, but you just can't make something that looks like a cartoon animal looking menacing no matter how hard you want to.
