Topics range from a critical reexamination of the Satanic Panic of the 1980s, to the growing significance of RPGs in education, to the potential for “serious” RPGs to provoke awareness and social change. The contributors discuss the myriad subtle (and not-so-subtle) ways in which the values, concepts and mechanics of RPGs have infiltrated popular culture. — From the website*********************************************************LicenseOriginal text in this blog is CC By: unless specified public domainUse as you please with attribution: link to the original.All images without attribution in this blog are CC0: public domain.*********************************If you are interested in web-worlds…Drop by my web office.My office times:  Weekdays: 12: -12:30 Central time  (US) Maybe weekends, too.  Other times by appointment. My web office: Cybalounge.Don’t register — enter as guest.  If you don’t see me:Click the pointed pushpin on the bottom line See if I am in Selby’s room.. We can also visit WebWorldz, a professionally-built world if you want. Thinkerer Melville in Second Life, Selby Evans in KitelyA web page you can walk intoTry a browser-based virtual worldCybalounge is ready for virtual worlders to use: Tutorials and suggestionsEntertainment in virtual worldsMal Burns: Inworld ReviewEntertainment on the HypergridOpensim AAM Virtual PerformersHYPERGRID EVENTSThe web show: a magazine from the virtual worldsArt of the Artists: [email protected] Machinima Challenge (L$350,000 Prize Pool) Create a film with a work of art.OpenSimWorkingRadioStreams (OSWRS).
