Role-Playing Game Professional (RPGP) Specifications Documents Overview (RFC Drafts)

Why the Role-Playing Game Professional Training, Workshops, Certifications, and Diplomas?

Role-Playing Games are Wonderfully Power Tools, but When Used for Professional Application, Professional Standards Are Needed: For maximum efficacy, benefit, accessibility, inclusiveness, and safety, high professional standards are needed in a fast growing but immature industry, that is where the Role-Playing Game Professional (RPGP) by RPG.LLC comes into "play".

We have been involved with the development of role-playing gaming and community programs since 1977!

Our programs are well-supported by over 45 years of research, peer-review, and evidence-in-practice across a wide range of disciplines validating their efficacy, validity, and reliability.
