Here are some snapshot photos from the RPG Research Project since 2004.

About The RPG Research Project

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, entertainment, and/or 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.
