In search of gaming scholars

I’m working on some preliminary research for an article I hope to publish on traditional/pen-and-paper RPGs and have realized that there’s not (as far as I can tell) a strong professional conversation space for those of us that study non-electronic games. Please comment here or contact me via email if you’d like to get connected to other gaming scholars.

  1. Back in 1994/5 I and Andrew Rilstone created and published a journal, Interactive Fantasy, that studied narrative in games with a particular emphasis on tabletop and role-playing games. I’ll shortly be re-releasing the issues we published as free-to-download PDFs. Not exactly a conversation space, but I hope it’ll be a useful addition to the resources for tabletop researchers.

  2. Hi,

    Would love to be connected!

    There’s a Kickstarter currently in the works for a Dungeons & Dragons documentary. I highly recommend it! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/andrewpascal/dungeons-and-dragons-a-documentary

    My book about The Evolution of Fantasy Role-Playing Games: http://www.amazon.com/Evolution-Fantasy-Role-Playing-Games-ebook/dp/B004I5BN0Y

    And please do consider joining The Committee for the Advancement of Role-Playing Games: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/car-pga
