Research on the demographics of Dungeons and Dragons players and the influence on character creation has been sparse. The current study focused on collecting demographic data on a large scale and collect information about the respondents preferences in character creation for a Dungeons and Dragons campaign, or game. The survey was sent to various tabletop roleplaying (TRPGs) groups and posted on pages associated with the game. At the end of the data collection the results were put through data visualization software, so the results could be shown easily and effectively. The results show the association between demographics and character creation and the impact of certain demographics on game choices.
