RPG (Role-Playing Game) Research - Overview List of the Pros and Cons of Each Role-Playing Game Format

Overview List of the Pros and Cons of Each Role-Playing Game Format - Doi: 10.13140/RG.2.2.36817.15203

 · 1 min read

Here is the latest revision of the document on the pros and cons of each role-playing game format.

Doi: 10.13140/RG.2.2.36817.15203

This is a decades-long on ongoing work in practice. I was asked recently to make this publicly available for citation by others.

This still is missing a LOT of citations from others (most of those are in the self-cited documents referenced, I'll try to integrate them into this document when I have time in the future). I am embarrassed by all the self-citation, but that is necessary to move forward covering the intended topic rather than having to explain everything within (and unfortunately many of the concepts referenced are not yet covered by others that I can cite). The self-citation is meant to point readers to the other documents already covering the additional topics mentioned, so this wouldn't have to be a 100 page document.

I also still have to back fill all the citations (I know what they are, but grabbing all the correct formatting is more time than I have right now) and clean up the citation formatting, still some general document formatting improvements to be made, grammatical, typographical, and other issues to clean up.

Despite the rough nature of the document, hopefully readers will still find kernels of value in this version.

Regards, W.A. Hawkes-Robinson.
