If you look for politics in role play or want to know what to avoid, join a conversation with Dr. David Simkins, professor & RP researcher, about what works & what doesn't.
Political RP may not be for everyone, but for those who enjoy it, it can be engaging, exciting, and deeply satisfying. It can also encourage anxiety, tension, and frustration between players. Join a conversation with David Simkins about the role of politics in role play. A long time LARP and tabletop game master, a professor of game development at the Rochester Institute of Technology's School of Interactive Games and Media, and the author of The Arts of LARP, David loves politics in his game, but hates game politics when they bleed into the rest of life. David will bring research, experience, and examples to a conversation about using politics as a focus for role play, and managing politics when they seep out of the game. Join the conversation, and bring your own thoughts and examples as well. The session will begin with a presentation and end with an informal conversation.
