I had the opportunity to speak with Michael Hartman of Frogdice Inc to talk about online roleplaying games. Admittedly, I do enjoy the odd online roleplaying game. However, there are times that I have been looked down on or questioned because of the fantasy nature of some of the content.
Before you judge it, I would ask that you take a second to step back and think about how community orientated this niche of people are. Especially in part 2 of the interview.
Frogdice Inc has created one successful online RPG called Threshold and has another in the works called Primordiax.
Given the moral and ethical nature, problems, and questions inherent in any true roleplaying game the games require you to be 18+.
Threshold is in it’s 13th year of existence and still going strong. It boasts a very large player base even for a strictly text-based game. A huge world of easily over 10,000 rooms. If you like World of Warcraft, like reading, and looking for something to challenge your mind a little more than just grinding through quests to get your level 80 Rogue, maybe give it a shot.
