About the Author
Lauren de Bruin is a Masters student at the University of Alberta's School of Library and Information Studies. She will convocate with her MLIS degree in the spring of 2006. She has previously earned her Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of Alberta.
An avid table-top role-player herself, Lauren finds the gritty world of story-based game entertainment to be a fascinating topic, both academically and recreationally. Activities commonly include deconstructing various pen-and-paper game manuals, hosting lengthy and often ponderous discussions concerning current game issues and developments, and joining the occasional avatar conga-line in selected MMORPGs.
