Roleplaying is simulating the roles, responsibilities and characteristics of another person. In fantasy roleplaying games like Dungeons & Dragons, this entails taking on a heroic fictional persona that generally has a role (e.g. classes like being a warrior, a priest or a thief) and a set of skills (e.g. magic casting, lock-picking, expertise at archery). Together with a party of similar heroes, the player's character is presented with a variety of virtual problems and scenarios which they endeavour to overcome. This is normally all done verbally, with chance being simulated through the use of dice.
The Birthright Campaign Setting gives background data for playing the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game in the land of Cerilia.
