People play tabletop role-playing games for a lot of reasons, but one of the best things to come out of the genre are the characters. Answer this survey so we can learn about your characters, how you play them, and what you enjoy about the hobby.

Many of the questions will be about playing with characters whose gender identity and sexuality is not the same as your own.

Description of Research Study
Internalizing a character’s desires and feelings, an experience referred to as “Character Attachment,” is one of the distinctive experiences of tabletop RPGs. Even when characters are extremely dissimilar to their players, members of this hobby form strong attachments to the characters they create.

If you decide to participate, you will join a study involving research on how gender and sexuality affect Character Attachment in tabletop RPGs. The research will compare experiences for players who share their characters’ gender identity and sexuality and for players who do not. If you agree to participate, you will take a survey that lasts for about 15 minutes. It will require you to select some answers and type in others.

The researcher will take all possible steps to keep the information you supply private. The results of this study may be used in reports, presentations, and publications; but the researcher will not identify you. These results will include quotes from survey answers, but no private or personally identifiable information will be associated with these quotes in order to protect the identity, safety, and privacy of you and other participants.

Withdrawal Privilege
It is okay for you to say “No.” Even if you say “Yes” now, you are free to say “No” later, and walk away or withdraw from the study at any time.
