Not What I Appear to Be


You would not believe the attention I got running around Lord of the Rings Online in this get up, especially after I set off Fireworks in front of the Prancing Pony. I think a lot of players thought I was a Dev. Everyone was bowing and waving and cheering. Gandalf is very very popular.

Have you read REALITY IS BROKEN or are you familiar with Jane McGonigal's views on gamers and gaming culture? The book is fantastic and she has a TED talk if you're interested in a preview.

Also, what are your thoughts on the upcoming Conan film? Excited? Dismissive?

No, I wasn't familiar with McGonigal, but I googled her (which sounds wrong somehow) and Reality is Broken looks very interesting. I'll have to get a copy. I did read her five guidlelines for gaming that were posted a Amazon and I'm in agreement for the most part.

I've answered your Conan question in a long and rambling post.

I think you will enjoy the book. If you get it, I'd love to discuss! I had it on my TBR list and then got it for review (love when that happens) so I'm waiting til the review is posted before I post about it on my blog and thus try to get a conversation going with my online "bookies." :)

A copy of the book is winging its way from Amazon as we speak.
