Optimizing the RPG Experience for Building Camaraderie As Quickly and Strongly as possible
by Hawke Robinson published Sep 08, 2017 last modified Jun 13, 2018 05:12 PM — filed under: , ,
Drawing on Therapeutic Recreation theories, methodologies, and protocols, there are a number of "ice breaking" techniques when forming new groups, to help improve building camaraderie. Also taking into account Tuckman's theories on group formation (Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing (Adjourning/Mourning)). This article combines all those concepts with using role-playing games to achieve these goals, and techniques for optimizing the RPG experience to improve this process, as well as some examples of games that build some aspects into their systems. This is a work in progress.

Old Research Repository
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 16, 2017 last modified Mar 21, 2019 02:48 PM
This is RPG Research's older research repository. We are currently moving more than 3,000 content items (1 multi-page essay equals 1 content item) from this old site to our new repository at www.rpgresearch.com/research . The new repository is better organized and formatted, but it takes months for our volunteers to move all this content from the old site to the new site, so we are keeping the old repository available until the move is complete. All new research is being added to the new repository, no new research is being added to this old repository as of 2018.

This community-focused website began with efforts, starting initially around 1985, and advancing since 2004, to identify the effects of role-playing games upon participants. Furthermore research efforts consider the potential uses of RPGs as intervention modalities to achieve educational and therapeutic goals for diverse populations. RPG Research is loose consortium of contributors and completely volunteer-run.

Bleed: The Spillover Between Player and Character
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2017 last modified Aug 09, 2020 02:40 PM — filed under:
Participants often engage in role-playing in order to step inside the shoes of another person in a fictional reality that they consider “consequence-free.” However, role-players sometimes experience moments where their real life feelings, thoughts, relationships, and physical states spill over into their characters’ and vice versa. In role-playing studies, we call this phenomenon bleed.[1]

Post LARP Depression
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2017 last modified Jun 21, 2020 06:29 AM — filed under: ,
Live-action role-playing (larp) occupies a unique place among analog games, for it demands as much from players’ bodies as it does from their minds. It comes then as no surprise that many players find themselves in the situation of feeling confused, exhausted, and emotionally raw after a larp event.1 In fact, larpers frequently exhaust themselves in advance through the leisure labor of planning their costumes, character actions, possible outcomes, and interactions...

LARP and Debriefing
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2017 last modified Jun 21, 2020 08:26 AM — filed under: ,
Debriefing is a somewhat controversial topic in role-playing communities today. While some individuals feel that games should remain distinct from the mundane world and debriefing is an unnecessary complication, many role-players have grown concerned about difficulties in the process of transitioning between intense game experiences back to mundane life.[1]

Notes from experiments on RPG optimization - Maximizing enjoyment, benefit, immersion, flow, safety, etc.
by Hawke Robinson published May 25, 2017 last modified Jun 27, 2020 03:50 PM — filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Here is a summary of many observations I have made over the decades through various experiments in trying to optimize the RPG experience. This is from a huge pile of hundreds of documents I have written, spanning over 15+ years of research (and nearly 40 years of RPG experience). It will likely take me a year or more to finish integrating all that information into this document. All of the placeholder topics I currently have documents to fill in the blanks, but I time is the challenge in doing so. Bit by bit I am uploading all that content to here.
