What a nice article. I just wanted to make a small addition myself by saying that while I designed the concept of the game that is in CCS and have alot of hands on in the development process, the system as it is would not be possible without the help of my development partner Jora Welesa. The LSL side of the system and the concept I can work with, the SQL database magic on the back end is all Jora and without it CCS wouldn't be half of what it is.

Wow. Well as one of the Supernatural beings referred to thanks for covering our home :) (I'm also in the fourth picture, the brown bodied Drider). Jora And Suz put so much work into the CCS that it often not only surprises the people who use it but surpasses anything we think possible with SL.

I hope you come back when we get out island launched, things are going to be quite fun I have a feeling.


This is a fantastic eloquently written article that perfectly captures the essence of CoLA. Your prognosis will doubtlessly become reality as everyone already knows, I only hope the explosion comprises mainly of aspiring and/or quality role players. (Thanks for using the pic of me with my talons =P).

Great article; well written, good detail. I've foxed one of the images for a reference post on my own blog; it is fully credited and linked back to this article. Let me know if you want me to take it down.

I'm going to have to check that out myself, it looks fantastic. But then, everyplace in SL looks fantastic when it's standing still. ^.^;;

I am a CCS RPG Player (COLA Combat System) but I don't go often to COLA sims.. because there are ((last time we checked)) more than 300 sims with the system installed.

Many languages, many different ways to play.. an addictive game that made me increase my SL addiction.. Now I can't leave CCS sims... always expecting to uplevel... lol xD

I don't care if ppl think CCS is good or not.. all I know is I LOVE IT!!

Thanks Suzz!! :***
