Which moment would you live in Fantasy?
« on: October 27, 2014, 03:21:28 PM »
A few weeks ago I read 'Heroes Die' by Matthew Stover and Im half way through 'Blade of Tyshalle'. I've really enjoyed the idea of being able to live your own fantasy adventure by hitching a ride in another persons brain.

For those not familiar with these books the idea is that there are two worlds, one the 'real' world which is futuristic and a separate parallel world which follows your more traditional medieval fantasy world. 'Actors' from the real world can transport to the fantasy world and essentially live adventures. They do this for the pleasure of their audience who, through the means of technology, can see, feel, smell and sense everything their actor feels.

Uber violent and also philosophical, not for the faint hearted but have a lot more to offer than just violence.

Anyway, the point of my post is...which moments in fantasy would you like to have lived, from whose perspective and why? Feel free to branch out to Sci Fi if you wish. Just be cool to hear of which epic or not so epic moments people would like to have 'lived'.
War is always an adventure to those who've never seen it.

The concept kind of reminds me of 'Better than life' from Red Dwarf. It's a really good question but there's so much to choose from.

I think im leaning towards being able to experience some of the epic visuals that have been described over the years rather then being in the boots of someone actually in a battle, no matter how epic.

It would just be a orgy of hate and violence, I wouldnt choose to experience the sights and smalls of that for entertainment.
