Other topics include: how The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings helped shape fantasy gaming through Tolkiens obsessive attention to detail and virtual world building- the community-based fellowship embraced by players of both play-by-post and persistent browser-based games, despite the fact that these games are fundamentally solo experiences- the origins of gamebooks and interactive fiction- and the evolution of online gaming in terms of technological capabilities, media richness, narrative structure, coding authority, and participant roles.
