The Greatest Unreality

This is Nick.  I've played games with the guy, ate sandwiches with him, 

and presented alongside him at a conference.  He's a good dude.  
Anthropologist Nick Mizer, who you might remember from his guest post about The Habitition of the Stone Giant Lord, is kickstarting a research project on D&D that might interest readers here. As he explains on the Kickstarter page, “Dungeons & Dragons is one of the most influential cultural developments in the last fifty years, and understanding that story can provide vital insights about the role of narrative and play in the modern world. By supporting this Kickstarter you will be a part of one of the most ambitious research projects into tabletop role-playing games yet completed.”

Supporting this type of academic research into gaming is one of the reasons we do what we do here at PlaGMaDA, and this looks to be an exciting project. That’s why we’ve decided to contribute to the Kickstarter with copies of Habitition as an add-on reward. You can learn more about Nick’s research at the Kickstarter page and check out some of his articles at academia.edu and in this great interview here.
