I am taking a quick few minutes for a mental break to provide just a quick blurb in case you thought I fell off the planet... :-)

Vision of the future
by Hawke Robinson published Dec 05, 2004 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:23 PM — filed under: , , , ,
It is still far to early to be sure that this vision for the future will even be relevant several years from now, as the research data begins to roll in, but if any of the core assumptions hold even remotely true, then the long term goal of creating RPG therapy modules could become a reality.

Wading back into Warhammer FRP again
by Hawke Robinson published Dec 14, 2011 last modified Aug 15, 2015 12:08 AM — filed under: , , ,
Since hearing that the folks in Israel claimed that WHFRP is less combat oriented than D&D 4th edition, I once again am trying to wade through the Warhammer rpg rule books, and will actually begin making some characters, though the whole setup of the game grates my nerves almost as much as World of Warcraft MMORPG does...

Warhammer FRP - Ideal For Immature Gamers?
by Hawke Robinson published Jun 15, 2011 last modified Aug 17, 2015 02:40 AM — filed under: , , ,
I have delved a little further into the Warhammer Fantasy Role Play rules, and from what I am seeing, I have a working theory as to where WH FRP may have it's usefulness for a specific subtype of role playing gamer, the immature player.

Well, so much for RPG.net as a useful resource
by Hawke Robinson published Aug 20, 2012 last modified Aug 14, 2015 11:13 PM — filed under: , ,
I guess I should have staged the polls more slowly. Clearly too much attention was drawn by posting too many new polls too closely together. RPG.net just moved ALL the polls effectively to their bit-bucket the Ads/Open Promo Classifieds section, basically spelling the death of those polls. :-(

What is Question/Hypothesis of the RPG Research Observation Group 1?
by Hawke Robinson published Mar 27, 2013 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:20 PM — filed under: , , , ,
I had a recent question on Facebook about my posting: "Finished session 5 with RPG Preliminary Observation group 1, using Ea d20 RPG in a Tolkien Middle-earth setting." The question was from Sarah Lynne Bowman, author of The Functions of Role-playing Games: How Participants Create Community, Solve Problems and Explore Identity.

When Does Role-Playing Gaming Become "Bad" For Participants?
by Hawke Robinson published Feb 25, 2014 last modified Aug 22, 2017 04:21 PM — filed under: ,
What do you think is a reasonable baseline for "safe" RPG participation? With different populations, when is there "too much of a good thing"? Do you have any anecdotes, or better yet research data that validates any particular stance? I am slowly building up the background for extensive research on the potential therapeutic uses of role-playing games in various formats (tabletop, live-action, computer-based) for various populations (TBI, PTSD, Autism-spectrum, LD's, etc.), with the assumption that there is potential benefit. But what are the potential risks?

Would RPG be effective for treating PTSD, especially war veterans? Or would it be counter productive?
by Hawke Robinson published Jul 30, 2011 last modified Aug 21, 2016 11:58 AM — filed under: , ,
A number of people have suggested undertaking research on whether using RPGs could be helpful or harmful for war veterans struggling with PTSD.
