Mafia Boss Gains Control of SL Stratics

by Alphaville Herald on 18/03/06 at 12:56 am

In an ongoing investigation into the news that a Second Life portal was coming to Stratics, the Herald has learned some alarming news: the avatar chosen to manage the soon-to-be-launched Stratics site covering all things Second Life appears to be none other than renowned mob boss (and occasional Herald contributor) Marsellus Wallace.

As faithful readers know, Mars started tearing it up in The Sims Online more than two years ago, under the guise of one JC Soprano. After re-establishing the Sim Mafia in Second Life, Marsellus has mainly kept his nose out of trouble, getting married, plying his trade as a virtual reporter and occasionally providing other services for the Herald. Now, though, it looks like the trouble is about to come find him.

The Herald stumbled on the story while looking into the new Stratics and Stratics New groups that were recently formed in Second Life. Both have Marsellus as officer, as the screenshots below demonstrate, and name him as “Portal Manager” and “Stratics SL Manager” respectively. (Click screenshots to enlarge.)


What prompted Stratics to nominate one of the longest-standing virtual mafia dons as the man to oversee its SL portal remains to be seen, and how he’ll handle the job is an even bigger question. The Herald has put in a request for comment from both Mars and the Stratics contact in this SL forum thread, but we haven’t heard back yet. Stay tuned for further developments in this important story.

    I’m sorry, I never knew I was banned. Thanks for informing me though! I was suspended for 7 days. Long before Stratics took over the forums. I was never banned from TSO or from Stratics. But yes, very classic. =)

    No dude all it means is Marsuck here will have yet another group made up of all his alts claiming to do this and that. Won’t be surprised when we see news stories or specific posts all about Marsuck in stratics now.
