by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2017 last modified Aug 09, 2020 02:40 PM — filed under:

In role-playing studies, we call this phenomenon bleed.[1]

by Hawke Robinson published Jun 21, 2017 last modified Jun 21, 2020 08:26 AM — filed under: ,

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.
