2004 - RPGR-A00001 An Overview of the History and Potential Therapeutic Value of Role-playing Gaming
by Hawke Robinson published Sep 30, 2004 last modified Dec 08, 2022 10:53 AM — filed under: , , ,
Role-playing gaming (RPGing) has its roots as far back as ancient history with the development of war-gaming. War-gaming is the simulation of combat strategies and tactics represented in reduced scale with various rules, often with some sort of randomizing agent such as dice or cards to add an element of “realistic” unpredictability. As long as there has been organized warfare, there appears to have been some form of war-gaming in every culture throughout history. Chess and the Chinese game Go both are very much based on war-gaming, but considered lacking by some because of the lack of unpredictability offered by “true” war-gaming using some degree of randomization.

First Prototype for the PAVE Group of Tabletop RPG as a Modality for Therapeutic / Educational Intervention
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 20, 2015 last modified Feb 05, 2023 12:22 PM — filed under: ,
This is an early prototype version. There are newer, more complete and updated, versions created since this article was posted years ago. This is useful for various populations and professionals from other disciplines wishing to teach participants how to find and use civic resources (police, fire department, doctor, hospital, theater, etc.). This program is based on work at Eastern Washington University with oversight by Professor Emily Messina and others. It has been repeated with similar success when used other groups in private practice through non-profit RPG Research and the for-profit RPG Therapeutics LLC since.

First Prototype of Tabletop RPG as a Modality for Therapeutic / Educational Intervention
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 20, 2015 last modified Feb 05, 2023 12:22 PM — filed under: ,
This is my first prototype rough draft in the development of role-playing gaming as a modality for therapeutic / educational interventions. For a Recreation Therapy course in which I am currently enrolled at Eastern Washington University, our task last week was to "Develop a Tabletop Leisure Education Game" for a group of Autism Spectrum (and other) adults in a facility near the Seattle area (we are in Spokane, WA). Of course I selected (with the approval of my assigned partner in the project, Tabletop Role-Playing Gaming (RPG ) for this assignment, in this case a 1940s Gumshoe Detective-style mystery set in urban Chicago...

How far to go with trolls?
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 20, 2015 last modified Feb 05, 2023 12:22 PM — filed under: , ,
Recently in a Facebook conversation regarding the Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer, I had some interaction with what turned out to be a troll. At first I thought it might be a legitimate interaction, but only too late was it clear they were otherwise... I thought it would be fun to post the interaction here for future reference.
