  29. 29. Entrance to Faerie Queene Online (FQO)<br />Players enter FQO through an early modern replica of our First Year Writing Seminar classroom. Two doors lead off – one into Spenser’s Study, the other into the game.<br />
  30. 30. Spenser’s Study<br />On the desk is a copy of “The Mutability Cantos.”<br />
  31. 31. Spenser’s Study is the respawn area.<br />If defeated, a player is resurrected in Spenser’s Study, where he or she discovers two stanzas about the mutability of all mortal life before re-entering the game.<br />
  32. 32. Entering Faerie Land<br />Emerging from a forest, one encounters Britomart.<br />
  33. 33. Castle Joyeous Plain<br />Before the doors of Castle Joyeous, one must defeat several knights who challenge you to swear allegiance to their lady, Malecasta.<br />
  34. 34. Castle Joyeous dining hall<br />
  35. 35. Merlin’s Cave<br />Emerging from Castle Joyeous, you are transported, as in Britomart’s flashback in Canto 2, to Merlin’s Cave. <br />
  36. 36. Castle Busirane Forest<br />NPC tells you to follow the winding river through the forest but to watch out for wolves.<br />
  37. 37. Sir Scudamour<br />A dialogue tells the player about Sir Scudamour’s beloved Amoret, imprisoned in Castle Busirane.<br />
  38. 38. Castle Busirane<br />The castle is defended by a wall of fire.<br />
  39. 39. Ollyphant<br />Before one can enter Castle Busirane, one must first defeat the giant Ollyphant.<br />
  40. 40. The Cupid Tapestry<br />Click on the wall hanging and you enter the stories depicted in the tapestry (Book III, Canto 11). Ekphrasis as virtual reality.<br />
