I'm James "Pigeon" Fielder, Ph.D., a Colorado State University political scientist who studies emergent political behavior inside game worlds, and how in-game politics affect player behavior in real life. I'm also a roleplaying game content creator for Evil Beagle Games and I mentor prison inmates using RPGs. More lurid details are at https://www.jdfielder.com

The good news is I'm well-versed in international relations, comparative politics, political communication, security studies; and psychological and anthropological game studies. 

The bad news is I don't code worth beans. I'm your bird if you need help building a politically believable world, but deadweight in front of Unity or a compiler. O_O

All of my projects so far have been limited in size and scope as I've had to work solo and on limited budgets (i.e. my wallet). I'd love to do interdisciplinary large scale political dynamics study of either an MMO or a living world RPG campaign. I'd also love to help anyone in need of a political scientist in their gaming work.

In short, hello! 

Pigeon
