This handbook collects, for the first time, the state of research on role-playing games (RPGs) across disciplines, cultures, and media in a single, accessible volume. Collaboratively authored by more than 50 key scholars, it traces the history of RPGs, from wargaming precursors to tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons to the rise of live action role-play and contemporary computer RPG and massively multiplayer online RPG franchises, like Fallout and World of Warcraft. Individual chapters survey the perspectives, concepts, and findings on RPGs from key disciplines, like performance studies, sociology, psychology, education, economics, game design, literary studies, and more. Other chapters integrate insights from RPG studies around broadly significant topics, like transmedia worldbuilding, immersion, transgressive play, or player–character relations. Each chapter includes definitions of key terms and recommended readings to help fans, students, and scholars new to RPG studies find their way into this new interdisciplinary field.

Harry Dresden steht ein schlechter Tag bevor, denn als Winterritter der Königin der Luft und der Dunkelheit weiß er nie, welche Ränke Mab gerade schmiedet und wie seine Rolle darin aussieht. Üblicherweise hat sie Übles mit ihm im Sinn. Doch diesmal kommt es besonders dick. Mab hat Harry ausgeliehen, um eine alte Schuld zu begleichen, und nun muss er einer Gruppe übernatürlicher Schurken unter Führung eines seiner gefürchtetsten und verhasstesten Feinde, Nicodemus Archleone, helfen, Zutritt zum bestgesicherten Tresorraum im Niemalsland zu erlangen. Dabei geht es darum, keinem Geringeren als Hades, dem Gott der Unterwelt, selbst den legendären Heiligen Gral zu entwenden.

With complex stories and stunning visuals eliciting intense emotional responses, coupled with opportunities for self-expression and problem solving, video games are a powerful medium to foster empathy, critical thinking, and creativity in players. As these games grow in popularity, ambition, and technological prowess, they become a legitimate art form, shedding old attitudes and misconceptions along the way. Examining the Evolution of Gaming and Its Impact on Social, Cultural, and Political Perspectives asks whether videogames have the power to transform a player and his or her beliefs from a sociopolitical perspective. Unlike traditional forms of storytelling, videogames allow users to immerse themselves in new worlds, situations, and politics. This publication surveys the landscape of videogames and analyzes the emergent gaming that shifts the definition and cultural effects of videogames. This book is a valuable resource to game designers and developers, sociologists, students of gaming, and researchers in relevant fields.
