Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7648)

Abstract

This workshop will be offering the participants both a theoretical and practical introduction to roleplaying games, with particular focus on the Nordic tradition of narrative- and character-driven scenarios. The various leading theories for categorizing roleplaying experiences, scenarios and communication will be briefly introduced, along with the relevant theories from the field of interactive narratives, after which the participants will be given the opportunity to participate in one of a representative sample of short-form scenarios. The workshop will conclude with a general discussion and experience-sharing session intended to relate the scenario play-throughs and covered theories with the participants’ general work within the field of interactive narratives.
