A role-playing game (RPG) is a type of game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take on the personas of these characters and interact with each other and the game's story and the world through improvisation and guided decision-making. The game is usually led by a Game Master (GM) who acts as the narrator, storyteller and referee for the game.
The origins of role-playing games The origins of role-playing games can be traced back to the late 1960s and early 1970s, with the publication of the first modern role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) in 1974. D&D was created by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, who was inspired by miniature wargames and fantasy literature. The game was a breakthrough success and quickly sparked a new hobby and industry.
