Only if you were playing "yourself" Garriott felt, could you be judged based on your character's actions.Because of its ethically-nuanced, story-driven approach, he took the Hindu word associated with a deity's manifestation on earth in physical form, and applied it to a player manifesting in the game world.Virtucom began development of Weopia in early 2008 with an international team whose aim was to find a compromise between conventional online dating and overwhelming first offline dates.Research has shown that unlike real-life dating, online daters rely on categorical attributes such as education, income and age rather than experiential attributes such as humor, charisma or rapport.Weopia allows singles to meet each other in an experiential virtual environment that allows a more meaningful experience than email or text chat, whilst also experiencing less cost, time, stress and risk.

It is important to understand the difference between a region and a land parcel within that region. By default, there is a single region-wide land parcel.However, it up to the region owner (Estate Owner, or "EO") to decide how to subdivide a region (if at all) and it is that region owner who is the ultimate authority for a region.While the In Worldz Terms of Service provide grid-wide rules, the EO of a region also makes the rules that specifically apply to that region, and can at any time change those rules or impose new ones.In this game, Garriott desired the player's character to be his earth self manifested into the virtual world.Garriott did this because he wanted the real player to be responsible for the character's in game actions due to the ethical parables he designed into the story.
