Musing 03

The perceived quiet death of character blogs and websites is quite interesting to me. Real life people have lost literally months, potentially years, to the alternative reality of roleplay with their chosen avatar.

It makes sense to me that GMs naturally extend out to blogging. It sort of goes with the psychology. In the game we share information and make $%^& up. Blogging is a natural extension of that. Players have a completely different psychological investment, one that arguably goes deeper and yet, curiously, does not express itself in the same way. I’ve spoken to folks who have had pen and paper characters that they remember in far greater detail, despite not having played them in years, than those same people can recall members of their own family.

Some neat late night questions brood here.
