Description


Sarah Lynne Bowman, "The Functions of Role-Playing Games: How Participants Create Community, Solve Problems and Explore Identity"
McFarland | 2010 | ISBN: 0786447109 | 216 pages | PDF | 1 MB

This study takes an analytical approach to the world of role-playing games, providing a theoretical framework for understanding their psychological and sociological functions. Sometimes dismissed as escapist and potentially dangerous, role-playing actually encourages creativity, self-awareness, group cohesion and "out-of-the-box" thinking. The book also offers a detailed participant-observer ethnography on role-playing games, featuring insightful interviews with 19 participants of table-top, live action and virtual games.
