Introductions
by Hawke Robinson published Mar 28, 2016 last modified Mar 28, 2016 12:30 PM — filed under:
By Maria Cambone on Monday, November 25, 2013 at 9:19am Please introduce yourself here! If you like, feel free to include a photo (if we can upload them to these notes - that has yet to be seen), your location, the role-playing games that you play in, how long you've been RPing, and any other information that you think might be interesting. Please try to keep introductions to less than 200 words, just to keep them easy to skim! Feel free to use the format I created below, or to create your own. Thanks so much, and it's wonderful to meet you!

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.

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.

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...
