People and Play
Table-top role-playing: what's it about? This course presents the immediate experience of play: what it's like to do it, what interactions and concepts are involved, some of the shapes and profiles the activity has taken on over its history, and its qualities as a unique medium of expression. Its lens is "the obvious," what you know you do when you're doing it. We've had fifty years to do this thing - let's make some sense out of it.
Class meets Mondays, July 11 through August 8, 20:00-22:00 CET.
We meet at Discord in the Adept Play server, at the channel named for this course. It is a private meeting and cannot be viewed by others.
Class time includes numerous activities, discussions, and exercises, and content often depends on their outcomes. Therefore attendance is extremely important and the class cannot be presented in some canned or standard way.
Each meeting includes homework which is due four days following class. I provide individual feedback on all assignments. There are no grades or numerical assessments for assignments or for the course.
