Welcome to Episode 7 of Game on Girl!
This week we talk to the most elusive of the player types: the Role Player.
Sharon is one of the original participants in my research study and I was delighted that we got a chance to talk again. She shares many insights into the culture of Role Playing in MMORPGs, both in current games like Star Wars: The Old Republic and older games like Necron, Horizons, and Star Wars: Galaxies. Take a listen and let us know what you think!
Are you going to try some role playing now? I am already thinking up back-story ideas for a new character.
If you are already a role player or active in a role playing guild of some kind, we would love to hear from you. Send me an email at email@example.com or leave a comment here.
Until next time, Game On!

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
