The Holder’s Dominion


“Davis creates both an everyday world and a world of adventure, then she laces them together and pulls tightly. If anyone implemented Edannair, I’d certainly want to play it!”

Richard A. Bartle, PhD, Professor of Game Design, University of Essex




A pioneer of the massively multiplayer online game industry, a British writer, professor, and game researcher, Richard A. Bartle has been an influence in the video game industry for over three decades. He is known for being the co-creater of MUD1 (the first MUD) and the author of the seminal Designing Virtual Worlds. Bartle produced groundbreaking research on player personality types in massively-multiplayer online games, and in Bartle’s analysis, players can be divided into four types. This idea has been adapted into a popular online test generally referred to as the Bartle Test. To learn more visit his website:

A heartfelt thank you goes out to Dr. Bartle. I am very glad you enjoyed the book!
