Sorority Life is a game created by Playdom and played on Facebook by about six million users in any recent month.
Credits and levels
You start with a few credits in various attributes (with differing effects) such as energy, stamina, confidence, and popularity. Most socializing (the main way of rising from one level to the next) uses energy, but energy, like the other attributes, is renewed over time, up to your current maximum. You can choose which of those maximum levels to increase with the few skill points you gain at each new level and occasionally as a reward for an activity.
You pay a little "play money" for job training; thereafter you get an hourly salary; at higher levels you can pay a higher training fee for a more lucrative job. Money buys glam and other things; any not needed should be banked or it may be stolen by players who succeed in an attack against you.
Your avatar is a slim model whom you can dress any way you choose (with what you have won or can afford).
You are encouraged to get your Facebook Friends to become your Sorority Life sisters. The game structures that by saying your friend joins your house - and you become part of his or her house in the same action. That strengthens your game in a number of ways:
- You can send them gifts (with some automated selection) and broadcast messages to all at once
- You can vote for up to 25 sisters (with one click) per day; each recipient gets $50
- Their levels of the various attributes (confidence, popularity, etc.) are combined with yours in any fight you have.
A side activity in the game is the earning of Brownie Points. You get a Brownie Point for each new level achieved and occasionally get one as a reward for an activity. You can also pay real money for them. Brownie Points are spent in some activities and can buy some of the most exclusive items of glam (including the best boyfriends) as well as play money.
Other pages about Sorority Life on this site
We plan to have numerous pages here to help players. PLEASE HELP!
So as to avoid confusion with other games that this site covers, our other article pages start with "SL:" then generally have no other capital letters unless the name is always capitalized (e.g. Pair of Theatre Tickets. That's so that they can be linked from ordinary words in text on other pages. Example: type:
in a sentence and it looks like level (and can have suffixes such as "s" or "ing" added) and thus does not make the sentence look odd but it creates a jump link to our page called "SL:level". (Names with commas or brackets need more work. See Help:Pipe trick.)
Those pages can be further broken down with the use of standard wiki subpages, created with a slash and another word added at the end of the name, e.g. SL:level/033. Each of those shows an automatic link back to its "basepage" ("SL:level" in that example). However, most of our pages will probably just have the initial "SL:" followed by the name as it appears in the game.
Model pages and templates
Many pages of the same sort can be quickly started with a copy of a standard outline, so that all you need to type is a few distinctive words and numbers. Example: see Template:SL socializing. We will need more of those.
For another way to keep our pages easily traceable from one to the other, please put every new page either in the main SL category, by typing [[category:Sorority Life]] at the bottom, or in a more specific category, such as [[Category:Sorority Life glam]]. If you're not a quick typist, pause after "[[category:Sor" and you will probably get a helping hand ("autocomplete") offering a short list of existing categories: click onde and it will appear on the page with its closing brackets and can be edited if it's not the best choice. Those of you who have worked on wikis before will know how to improve the order of listing within any category; if you don't know, you can leave the category as is, and someone can tweak the listing later.
