This website is a volunteer repository of research information on the effects of all forms of role-playing games.

As an international community of volunteer researchers, we have been studying the effects of role-playing games since 1985, and since 2004 providing an open online research repository  investigating the effects of all role-playing game formats: tabletop, live-action (LARP), computer-based, and solo adventures.

Some of us, as volunteers from a Recreation Therapy background, help people achieve their educational and therapeutic goals through the intentional use of role-playing games (RPG) and music. We work with toddlers, youth, and adults of all ages, to help improve the quality of their lives.
