Virtual reality: Avatar inspires gamer to hit the gym

The world of "EVE Online" is brutal. There are enemies and alliances, death and destruction. Gamers fight for territory, profit and fame in a never-ending quest to top their opponent.

It's a bit like the real world that way.

When Marcus Dickinson first created his "EVE" character, Roc Wieler, the two had little in common. Roc was a retired colonel from the Minmatar tribes -- a stoic, physically imposing disciplinarian. Dickinson was a 230-pound Canadian with an affinity for bacon.

Over time, the line between fiction and reality has blurred. (Culture, EVE Online)
