persona Thumbnail


  • noun Your persona is your representation in the game, ie. the virtual you in the virtual world modelled by the MUA. In MUD2, each account has room for three of these, and you can thus play under three different names (but only one at a time). If one persona is killed, the others aren't affected. Conventionally, the plural of persona is personae. There is a clear boundary between personae and players: the former are personality projections of the latter. Other than their owners, only wizzes can tell for sure whether two personae are attributed to the same account or not, and if you want to pretend to be two different people they won't (or at least shouldn't!) tell... See player, role-play, character, persona name, masquerade. Compare avatar.
