Notes from experiments on RPG optimization (Standard Non-therapeutic/education settings)
by Hawke Robinson published May 25, 2017 last modified Jun 27, 2020 03:47 PM — filed under: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Here is a summary of many observations I have made through various experiments in trying to optimize the RPG experience. These are based both on observations (most of which include thousands of hours of recorded RPG sessions), verbal feedback, and formal assessment forms from participants. Scores of variables were taken into consideration and repeatedly tweaked to try to find some level of causal changes, but at this stage are probably only at best correlative, in the enjoyment levels of participants. There are plenty of potential confounds here, and so every statement should have that taken into consideration that these should be further researched with more rigorous techniques. However, implementation of these observations does seem to have lead to consistently higher assessment & observation scores. I hope others find this useful for trying to optimize your own RPG setting. This was a non-therapeutic and non-educational setting, it was only for standard leisure activity of tabletop role-playing games.

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.
