Roleplaying game ask us to engage our imagination in ways no other medium does: they ask us to create entire worlds in our heads and position ourselves within them, ask us to see, feel, touch, taste and smell delights of our own creation. How can game designers more thoughtfully engage the human senses? How can we conjure up experiences that allow ourselves to immerse fully within these fictional worlds?
