Role Playing Games

Role Playing Games, often referred to as RPG's, are a very unique type of game. These games are usually designed around having a gaming group with a game master, who runs the game, and several players. Each player develops a character that then is able to interact with the other characters on an adventure; a dice system is used as a way to add randomness to the game. This type of game experience is very cooperative and social in nature, and can often be described as creating a story together. Groups will often meet weekly to play out the adventure. Many times people will talk for years about the epic adventures and exploits of their characters!

Common game systems include: Dungeons & Dragons, Vampire: The Masquerade, Savage Worlds and GURPS.
