RPG Storytelling in the Metaverse
While online MMORPG and computer games have often made great strides towards being open ended, they do not offer the possibilities that the metaverse can. In virtual worlds, gamers with a vision can create their own version of a favorite universe or story and friends can join in. This presentation will review role playing and story telling in virtual worlds and discuss the various methods and approaches that the metaverse provides to make your dreams and adventures a virtual reality.
Alcibides ZemenisÂ has been lecturing on RPG story telling for several years in Second Life, along with reading from his published work and poetry. The second edition of his novel “The Goddess of Piglandâ€ will soon be released on Amazon Kindle. Al also runs the Alemzi Art gallery in Second Life.
