2020 (English)In: FDG '20: International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games / [ed] Yannakakis G.N.,Liapis A.,Penny K.,Volz V.,Khosmood F.,Lopes P., New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2020, article id 103Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Tabletop roleplaying games (TTRPGs) and procedural content generators can both be understood as systems of rules for producing content. In this paper, we argue that TTRPG design can usefully be viewed as procedural content generator design. We present several case studies linking key concepts from PCG research-including possibility spaces, expressive range analysis, and generative pipelines-to key concepts in TTRPG design. We then discuss the implications of these relationships and suggest directions for future work uniting research in TTRPGs and PCG.
