Roleplaying Tabletop Games
Make believe with consensual parameters of reality
alternative reality is stated by a games master (Dungeon master story teller, master of ceremonies)
The Dungeon Master is god in this universe
Players present characters according.
In AD&D a fighter, magic-user, cleric, thief, etc.
Dice of many forms (4-sided, 6-sided, 8-sided, 10-sided, etc.) are the lubricant of fantasy gameplay, but technically not necessary.
It's like an ensemble telling of a story
The above is more akin to poetry than to a bona fide encyclopedia entry. The idiosyncratic line-breaking, the cryptic statements, etc., is just silly. --LMS
