Anya Ixchel’s interview of Herald founder Urizenus Sklar in SLatenight ends with a shocking revelation – Uri confesses that while in The Sims Online he was a secret part of the Sims Shadow Government – a vigilante group that appointed itself to police the TSO world – and a frequent subject of Herald coverage.
The startling revelations come at the end of the interview when Urizenus admits, “back on TSO I was a stealth member of the SSG (not active on missions, but able to monitor communications), and after Snow White stepped down as Overlord Mia Wallace once invited me to become Overlord”. Evidently, Urizenus assumes that the statute of limitations has expired on his TSO actions – will his defence be that he was just doing whatever it takes to get a story back in the TSO days?
If this was Urizenus getting close to his sources, could this also mean that he would also stoop to joining the W-Hat goons, the libsecondlife h4x0rs, or the Electric Koolaide Sheep? Or are these really the same organization with reciprocal parking privileges?
An investigation is likely as the Herald staff works to establish the true identities of our various alts and expose the web of deceit that could even reach into the newsroom here at the Herald. To get to the bottom of this scandal, the managing editor of the Herald has just assigned Urizenus to investigate himself amd report back if he finds anything amiss – this sort of thing seems to be good enough for the Lindens, so it ought to be good enough for the Herald.
