Testimonials: Check out what people say about us.

Research, advocacy, and community programs for many populations.

Beginning research since 1983, and since 2004 providing an open, international repository of role-playing game (RPG) focused research, we aggregate research, conduct our own research, and foster the research of others into the effects of music and RPGs. We then sythesize & analyze that information to create inclusive and accessible community programs that measurably improve people’s lives. We cover all RPG formats: tabletop (TRPG), live-action (LARP), computer-based (CRPG), and solo adventure books/modules (SABM).
