An Immersive World

As you play these games, you will notice that the best ones for you will be the ones that make you escape from this world for a little while and enter the world you are acting in.  To accomplish this, game designers and/or Game Masters create levels to the world you are playing in.  They also structure the Adventure that your sessions of playing are in with a specific goal of drama.

This structure of Drama has been taken from the creation of fiction in stories, scripts, etc.  The elements of conflict are what makes these games we play rise above the boring, and captures the players interest.

The levels of a virtual world:

Structure of an adventure:
