Oliver: A Hardcore Oxygenarian Speed-Ascending Mall-Trading Clan-Leading Pastamancer is You?, freeform notes from Seminar on Playing Roles, Tampere

These are my free form notes from the Seminar in Tampere on Playing Roles:

Oliver: A Hardcore Oxygenarian Speed-Ascending Mall-Trading Clan-Leading Pastamancer is You?

The kingdom of loathing.
Character class: sealclubber
...shows slides, silent, presenting an rpg
A low spec game. Everything is single player in the narrative.

Looking at roles ppl saw themselves in.

The good citizen, a phrase used by players.

Bugfinder and tester. Influencing development team.
//seems in that respect a little bit like a mud, being a wizard.

Roles in this game primarily social, getting over the rules, seeming trivial.

Experienced players defened their own roles from a social perspective, while newer players defined themeseves from the game rules, classes etc.

Aversion to typing...
