Follow the White Robot - A Role-Playing Game with a Robot Game Master

19 Jan 2018

We describe a social robot acting as a game master in an interactive tabletop role-playing game. The Robot Game Master (RGM) takes on the role of different characters, which the human players meet during the adventure, as well as of the narrator. The demonstration presents a novel software and hardware platform that allows the robot to (1) proactively lead through the storyline and to (2) react to changes in the ongoing game in real-time, while (3) fostering players’ collaborations.

The Follow the White Robot demonstration will be presented at the International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems from 10.-15. July in Stockholm, Sweden. It is part of the XRoads project.
