More immersive than tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder, more imaginative than video games like Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, more interactive even than massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) like World of Warcraft, comes the free-flowing creativity, collaboration, and immersiveness of open online virtual worlds like Second Life, where you can be whoever and whatever you wish, build your own life and design your own adventures. RPGs have never been more popular. And now, they've exploded into the metaverse. But where to start with unplanned, unscripted roleplay? How to design your character, plan your story and play out your interactive adventure? This first-of-its-kind volume will show you-not just tell you-how to do all that and more. Rather than a dry instruction manual, Learning to Roleplay in Virtual Worlds tells the story of Arjun, an aspiring roleplayer trying his hand with nothing more than spunk, humor, and a good Internet connection. As he struggles through quests and classes, you'll learn from his successes and failures. Peppered with technical tips and transcripts from actual roleplay, Arjun explores diverse roles, from warrior to healer, from trader to lover, and discovers how good roleplayers become great ones. As you follow along in his adventures, you'll level up your own roleplay... because Arjun's story could be anyone's. Even yours Whether you're in it for the action, strategy, or adventure; whether you're a hardcore roleplayer or a total newbie, expert role-player Pannie Paniscus invites you on a unique narrative journey: the story of a new world-a new self-that can be yours.
