I was venturing through the plains of Dragonwake, a green province of the Old World. As I passed canyons and rivers on my mount, which I named Spike in honor of fellow of Dark Elf Malus Darkblade, I glared at castles of great esteem which lay, only momentarily of course, in control of the High Elves: our nemeses. That night I was hunting for a particular High Elf, since after all I had a personal score to settle with that self-proclaimed highbrow as he denied me my own and my guild’s assured victory on the battlefield at the border to Caledor.
The scene illustrated above is derived from a personal experience within the virtual world of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (2008), a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, or MMORPG for short. The virtual reality mediated by the game fueled my imagination and without giving it another thought I was becoming immersed. I was not experiencing this space in solitude however. I was experiencing it with my brother, friends and many others. It was an alluring world created to draw in thousands and thousands of players. It was a world inhabited with monsters to kill, dungeons to explore, villages to burn (or save, if you wish) and fellow players to share these challenges and experiences with. We were, in varying degrees, immersed in a shared virtual space.
