Mixing up table-top role playing games (RPG) with digital humanities project lifecycles, Quinn Dombrowski (Stanford) created The DH RPG for a course 2020. The resource remains a fun and relevant way to explore and teach project management and ethical collaboration, and explore infrastructures critically. The site includes a guide to play, character building templates, and a skills guide of five categories, including Disciplinary, Technical, Interpersonal, Management, and Personal, to help traverse trials and tribulations from multiple angles in a DH project.
