role-playing game (noun), plural: RPGs

For the original tabletop RPG format (TRPG): "A seated, cooperative, interactive storytelling recreational activity, with structured rules, in a shared imaginary setting, with a game facilitator and one or more players, one or more defined and evolving character(s) separate from the player(s), each taking imaginary actions verbally declared by the player, modified by static and random variables, and experiencing the imaginary consequences of those actions as defined by the game rules and the game facilitator, with progression usually tracked by paper and pencil." - W.A. Hawkes-Robinson
