Comment Introduce Yourself!
by Mysty Vander last modified Apr 20, 2018 08:10 AM
Hey! I thought it would be important if we all introduced ourselves! My name is Mysty/Courtney. I'm 26 years old and live in a small city in Ontario, Canada. I am a parent, an avid D&D player and content creator. I often don't spread out to other RPG systems, but I wish I had the time to! I'm new to ASL, just in the beginning stages of learning and achieving my certifications through as many levels as I can. I was born with a congenital and incurable disorder which causes a deficiency/defect in my collagen (COL1A1) gene. It's called Osteogenesis Imperefcta. My five year old also has it. Among the many lovely side effects of this genetic anomaly (easily broken bones, bone pain, short stature, degenerative scoliosis, heart defects, respiratory issues, etc.) is a 50% prevalence in hearing loss. I have been identified as one of the 1 out of every 2. Thankfully, I was able to live my life until now primarily hearing. However, my low-frequency hearing is going quite fast now and it is estimated my high frequency shall join it by the time I'm in my mid-thirties. I'm very lucky and privileged to know this all beforehand and catch it early so as to prepare myself ahead of time!  Also, I'm a full-time licensed child care owner so that tends to keep me rather busy! I'd love to hear some anecdotes about yourselves, what brings you here, and what games you often play! Mysty/Courtney

Cognition - Using RPGs to Enhance the Learning Process, from the Cognitive Neuropsychology Perspective
by Hawke Robinson published Nov 29, 2017 last modified Aug 02, 2020 08:04 AM — filed under: , , , , , ,
This could be applied to all RPG Formats in various ways, with different strengths and weaknesses presenting in each format: Tabletop, Live-Action (LARP), computer-based, or solo adventure books/modules. Ideally a mix of all 4 formats would likely have the most powerful effects. This is from a recent assignment for a cognitive neuroscience class. I only had about an hour or two to whip this up, so this is just a simple, quick essay for a class assignment. It isn't very well put together, because the assignments are only worth about 1-10 points out of 1,000, while the tests add up to 800 points of the total grade, so please forgive the lack of formality and poor quality. Hopefully you will still find the information listed useful. I hope in the future to write a much better, more formal version, but with my existing backlog, who knows when that will be, so I am posting this here as a placeholder reminder for me to hopefully work on it in the future. Even in this rough format, it may still be useful for some interesting topical discussions.

2003 James D. Persinger, Ph.D. Problem: Assessment of the social domain = Standardized Rating Scales •Interviews and observations may better connect to practical intervention. •Role-playing games (RPGs) have the qualities of both interview and observation •RPGs not only serve as assessment tools, but as a powerful intervention tool for practicing social skills.

What Tools Do You Use for Your Campaigns?
by Hawke Robinson published Oct 04, 2017 last modified Aug 02, 2020 08:42 AM — filed under: , , , ,
As asked in Geek Therapy Community on Facebook by Pâris Conte, "To those here that write campaigns, build campaign settings, etc... What system do you use to store and organise your notes? A hand written journal? Specific software? Why did you chose what you use?". Such a lengthy response would be a terrible wall of text on FB, so I'm answering it here where both longevity and formatting are MUCH better...
