Sort of a mashup of sci-fi and fantasy, strongly inspired by the Heroes’ Die books written by Matthew Woodring Stover and (yes, again) the Coldfire trilogy by C.S. Friedman.

“Players” are humans from a future earth who adventure in the alternate (parallel?) world of Altaerra for the entertainment of millions back on Earth who “tune” into their broadcast thought and sensory transmissions.
