UPDATE: JULY 2017 WIZARDS OF THE COAST PROVIDED US WITH A LICENSE! - After years of trying to get any kind of response, the only one we could get for using D&D publicly, was "No" to any use by our company, RPG Therapeutics, or The RPG Research Project, or The Wheelchair Friendly RPG Trailer, and all of our community endeavors, including charity, special needs populations, brain injury recovery, veterans, Autism Spectrum, etc. Hopefully this is just a Tier 1 Support issue. But we just can't get a hold of a human being to speak to. Here is what has happened far...

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.

Comment Tacoma PAVE related links for Autism Spectrum
by Hawke Robinson last modified Apr 27, 2017 02:18 PM
A project that slipped from my mind with the whirlwind of everythingvvelse, is the PAVE group's project. I had told them we would hopefully be running their program sometime this summer. I also intended to start a dialog with them in the months leading up, so we could get various details hashed out to better prepare for implementing the program. This is an important project that we should try to have all hands on deck, like the MDA project. This is the program to teach them to use the public transit system, while developing social skills, etc. An "Agents of Shield" type setting. Everyone on the RPG Therapeutics staff should make themselves familiar with the program, because it is also a template for future programs for this population (ASD/PDD). I still need to clean up the rough bits of the actual adventure, but it is pretty well detailed. At this point it is still a concept to be tested in the field. We have time, but we should all (including myself to refresh), read through the program documents in depth. Revise errors, typos, etc, and begin planning the details of implementation, who will take on what roles, etc. This begins as a tabletop RPG, and then for the final session transitions to a LARP. Here are the relevant documents to read: http://rpgresearch.com/documents/primary/images/programs/operation-tacoma-z-day-cover-20141120b.png/view Overview: http://rpgresearch.com/documents/rpg-research-project/archives/rpg-tr-handbook-of-practice/wiki-version/a-recreation-therapy-related-program-plan-using-role-playing-gaming-to-prepare A deeper overview: http://rpgresearch.com/blog/first-prototype-of-tabletop-rpg-as-a-modality-for-therapeutic-educational-intervention Core Document. Includes TR & Adventure information. Still has blanks to be filled for the NPCs, later adventure components, etc. http://rpgresearch.com/documents/rpg-research-project/archives/private/rcls-445-01-asd-tacoma-bus-rpg-adventure-20140825v.pdf/view I have a more up to date version in my archives offline that I will try to upload in the near future. That will be the one we work together to fill in the blanks and complete. There is also a related project, pure tabletop, the predecessor to the Z-Day Tacoma, it is a 1940s Gumshoe adventure, that will also be used with various populations in the future: http://rpgresearch.com/documents/rpg-research-project/archives/rpg-tr-handbook-of-practice/wiki-version/tabletop-rpg-as-a-modality-for-therapeutic-educational-intervention-for-asd-youth-and-adults-to-develop-civic-resources-knowledge -- -Hawke Robinson President, RPG Therapeutics LLC Washington State Registered Recreational Therapist http://www.rpgtherapeutics.com 1312 N.
