How to Play Midgaard
The Midgaard Players' Guide
Etiquette: use the 'afk' command
If you're going to be away from your keyboard for any length of time,
command. This lets other characters know that you're not there to
ask, or page, so that they don't wait for you to respond.
In Midgaard, it's considered
very rude to leave your keyboard without
setting the afk flag. Please do.

"[The] dominant of postmodernist fiction is ontological. That is, postmodernist fiction deploys strategies which engage and foreground questions like ... "Which world is this? What is to be done in it? Which of my selves is to do it?" Other typical postmodernist questions bear either on the ontology of the literary text itself or on the ontology of the world which it projects, for instance: What is a world?; What kinds of worlds are there, how are they constituted, and how do they differ?; What happens when different kinds of worlds are placed in confrontation, or when boundaries between worlds are violated?; What is the mode of existence of a text, and what is the mode of existence of the world (or worlds) it projects?; How is a projected world structured? And so on." — Brian McHale, Postmodernist Fiction ( info)
