What are tabletop roleplaying games?

Tabletop roleplaying games (TTRPGs) are collaborative games between a number of players and their Dungeon Master/Game Master (either DM or GM). The DM/GM prepares a fictional world to lead the players through. Players create a character to take on the role of and pretend to be within the story. This usually happens under the rule set of a tabletop system, such as Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, etc with polyhedral dice as a randomizing component. As the players and DM/GM work together, they create a story. These games can be short as a one-off game, or span many sessions over months or years.

Basic free rules for some popular TTRPGs:

Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition

Shadowrun 5th Edition

Dungeon World SRD

Pathfinder 2nd Edition SRD
