I was working on Limitless Fantasy today and I found myself writing this:
"No matter where they are in the world, everyone playing a videogame or MMO game is playing the exact same game in the exact same world.* Yet every single table where a group of friends gather around to roll dice is an utterly unique universe filled with stories that have never been told before. And that to [me], is a glorious thing."
This is certainly not an original thought, but it is still pretty mindblogging.
*Not to disparage the idea. Everyone reading the same book is also participating in a shared experience.
