RPG Research's

Mission Statements

RPG Research's overall original Mission Statement is currently mostly on hold due to our efforts to get insurance. When we have the insurance issues addressed, we hope in the future we can resume our full Mission. Until then we are focused on a smaller subset through the RPG Community Center.

RPG Research's original overall Mission Statement is currently mostly on hold in our efforts to get insurance.

When we have the insurance issues addressed, we hope in the future we can resume our full Mission. Until then we are focused on a smaller subset through the RPG Community Center.

1)  To clearly establish, through rigorous scientific testing, the effects on participants of: music and all role-playing game (RPG) formats: tabletop (TRPG), live-action (LRPG), electronic (ERPG), and all hybrid variants (HRPG). In addition to determining the potential relevance of correlated factors, wherever possible, significant emphasis is placed on contributing to the body of causal research information.

2)  Based on any available established research, from a variety of disciplines, using relevant evidence-based and theory-based approaches, RPG Research will assess, design, develop, implement &  evaluate intervention programs using music and/or various role-playing game formats as intervention modalities for participants to achieve their recreational, educational, professional, therapeutic or other quality-of-life-enhancing goals.

3)  Based on funding, staffing, and resource availability, RPG Research will provide these services to individuals, population groups, and communities where research indicates they may benefit the most from our programs, and advocate for accessibility and inclusiveness for the widest range of populations possible, especially those in under-served and un-served areas.

4)  Whenever legally and ethically possible, all such research information will be freely and openly shared with the public to help further advance the global body of knowledge and overall improve the experience of the human condition.
