RPGs

A tabletop role-playing game, also known as a pen-and-paper role-playing game, is a form of role-playing game in which the participants describe their characters’ actions through speech. Participants determine the actions of their characters based on their characterisation, and the actions succeed or fail according to a set formal system of rules and guidelines. Within the rules, players have the freedom to improvise; their choices shape the direction and outcome of the game. Unlike other types of role-playing games, tabletop RPGs are often conducted like radio drama: only the spoken component of a role is acted. This acting is not always literal, and players do not always speak exclusively in-character. Instead, players act out their role by deciding and describing what actions their characters will take within the rules of the game.
