We began with our founder's RPG efforts beginning in 1977.
In schools since 1985, and therapeutic programs since 2004.
Our free and open research repository has also been available to the public online since 2004.
We incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 2017, 100% run by unpaid volunteers across 5 continents.
In 2018 we had only 10 regular volunteers (partnering with many other organizations).
As of March 2020 we hit over #121 across 5 continents!
NOTE WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF MOVING OUR WEBSITES.
MOST OF OUR CONTENT CAN STILL BE FOUND HERE:
The content that takes weeks to learn at once per week at RPG Research as a volunteer, you will learn in a single intensive day at RPG Therapeutics.
Our office HQ is 1312 N. Monroe St. Spokane, WA, USA.
Our staff consists of 100% unpaid volunteers.
We have over 100 volunteers across 5 continents!
No clients are ever at our founders home, instead meet our participants online or at their locations, or at community centers, schools, libraries, rehabilitation centers, parking lots using the wheelchair accessible RPG bus or trailers, etc.
Our programs are provided freely to the public.
The rpg bus and trailers are owned by our founder and he freely donates use of them but they are not owned by any company, instead he carries the burden of their payments, insurance, licensing, maintenance, etc., and we get to use them freely.
We provide freely available research repositories.
We provide freely available community programs.
Our programs provide all role-playing game formats including: tabletop, live-action, electronic, and hybrids.
Our programs also provide cooperative music programs including open music jams and drum circles.
We have a team of open source volunteer software developers creating accessible electronic role-playing games.
We have a team of volunteer transcriptionists helping to make our videos more accessible to the Deaf & HoH, as well as other languages.
We have a team of volunteer researchers helping to create new research freely available to the public.
We have a team of volunteer game masters and facilities helping to provide online and in-person game sessions.
Our founder became involved with role-playing games in 1977, software development in 1979 (and online via what would become the Internet), paid professional game master since 1982, researching the effects of role-playing games since 1983, running role-playing games in schools since 1985, running role-playing games in therapeutic settings since 2004.
