WoW / Second Life crossover
Jerry from the Electric Sheep Co. is currently planning a crossover event between WoW and Second Life.
“SL and WoW respectively represent the state of the art in the narrative and non-narrative, game and non-game metaverse, but their cultures, aims, and the experiences they provide are dramatically different. WoW players often dis on SL users (“Oh, it’s just a boring social world”), and vice verse (“You can’t *do* anything in WoW”), perhaps based partly on a lack of understanding and shared experience.”
A wiki about the event has been started here.
I’m hoping that my guild on Shadow Council, the Blue Mon Group, will be involved, but at the moment I’m not sure how easy it will be for Australian players to participate in the event because of the time difference. Anyway, I see that a basic Second Life account is free, so I’m off to start one now.
