What is an RPG?
RPG stands for Role-Playing Game. In this type of game, you portray a character who is either assigned to you or created by you. The goal is to be more like the character than like yourself during game play. Think of it like improvisational theater where the other players are both costars and audience. Your character is reacting to the fictional world in which it exists. Normally, there will be a game master of some sort who will tell you about this fictional world and what is happening in it. RPGs can take many forms. Some involve dice, cards, costuming, or just sitting around telling a story together.
