I remember that series. Think I have one of them about somewhere.

Basically, open season to 'metagame' or attempt to do so.  Wanting to invent gunpowder or other anachronism is something I remember players wanting to do in the '80s :)

College-age self is better than current-age self, since my motivations would be quite different.

You could, or you could pretend that *you* are that modern day gamer. And be yourself (in the body of your fantasy character) :)

So in this game, we would be creating a "real world" character - a modern, 21st century gamer - and a fantasy character they'd play?

In the books, the first few anyway, it was really interesting, because the "characters" started doing all kinds of unusual things in the world, that had nothing to do with "adventuring, slaying monsters, and grabbing treasure" (as you can imagine). A few of them immediately decided to "eradicate slavery" in their new fantasy world. Another guy began a gunpowder making operation, and kept getting all science-y. A third was just thrilled with his new body because he was a wheel-chair bound paraplegic in real life. That guy actually enjoyed the "adventuring" part. Etc...

Okay, that's definitely different. I like it.

So playing ourselves trapped in the bodies of a character we'd make for a roleplaying campaign. That sounds legitimately interesting.

3rd or 4th wall, i forget which lol

I was dashing my head against the wall for rp inspiration, and then remembered that old series of books... Guardians of the Flame series by Joel Rosenberg, and was thinking of doing something like that. Maybe. What do you guys and gals think?

Basically, the series involved normal modern  people pen-and-paper role-playing away at college, then hurtled into the fantasy world their gm created for the game, in the bodies of their characters....Etc etc etc
