Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Episode #3 of Riknas, Ferrel’s, and my pet project. We got together a little bit late this past week, so sorry about being a day late. This week, we talked about storytelling, immersion, and, yes, Epic Riknas. What is an Epic Riknas you might ask? Only the best up and coming MMO out there! Riknas Online is set to launch sometime in 2035, alongside Chris: The Final Frontier, a virtual reality version of the Oregon Trail. It’ll be a box set.

We were also happy to be joined by Ryan, writer here, and operator of our host, Vagary TV. Ryan’s currently a staff member on one MUD and the main developer for another, so he had an interesting perspective on how content gets presented to the player. Thanks for joining us, Ryan!

If you enjoyed the show, we’d love to hear about it in the comments or through an iTunes review (iTunes reviews will get honored on the show… *wink wink*). You can also feel free to contact us directly at multiversepodcast@gmail.com.
