Short for "Role-Playing Game"; a game in which the player takes on the persona of a fictional character and has adventures with other characters in a world created by the Game-master, a sort of referee. Can be played with other people ("Face-to-Face" or "table-top"; also called "Pen-and-Paper"), or over the Internet ("Play-by-E-mail" or "Play-by-Post" games; this category also includes games played on IRC or via a chat site)
Not to be confused with computer RPGs, which are a different kettle of fish altogether.
I've been playing RPGs for the past ten years.
