The TViews Table Role-Playing Game

By Ali Mazalek, Basil Mironer and Dana Van Devender

Abstract

The TViews Table Role-Playing Game (TTRPG) project explores the creation of digital tabletop role-playing games on the TViews table, in order to bridge the separate worlds of traditional role-playing games with the growing area of massively multiplayer online role-playing games. The TViews table is an interactive tabletop media platform that can track the location of multiple tagged objects in realtime as they are moved around its surface, providing a simultaneous and coincident graphical display. In this paper we present the implementation of the first version of TTRPG, with a content set based on the traditional Dungeons & Dragons rule-set. We also discuss the results of a user study that used TTRPG to explore the possible social context of digital tabletop role-playing games
