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


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