The {{role playing| game}} and [[RealTimeStrategy strategy]] games that one sees on computers and video game consoles are one permutation of a much older legacy. The originals were played with a book of rules, pencils, paper, UsefulNotes/{{dice}}, models and imagination -- a form of low-tech virtual reality. [[http://www.payvand.com/news/04/dec/1029.html D6 dice are]] OlderThanDirt, while [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/120587-New-York-Museum-Boasts-2-000-Year-Old-Ancient-Egyptian-d20 D20s are apparently]] OlderThanFeudalism, though no one knows what they were used to play. These are still popular today, in many forms, the most widely known of which are tabletop [=RPGs=] and tabletop {{Wargam|ing}}es.

Tabletop [=RPGs=] have their origins in the OlderThanRadio {{turn based strategy}} tabletop {{Wargam|ing}}es, tracing all the way back to TabletopGame/Chess (invented in ancient India) and TabletopGame/Go (invented in ancient China). [[WordOfGod According to Dave Arneson]] (a co-creator of ''[[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons D&D]]''), the modern concept of an RPG -- players being represented in the game by actual characters with unlimited potential to act, as opposed to countries, pawns, or other abstract entities with [[AllThereInTheManual well-constrained abilities]] -- came about in the mid-1960s with David Wesley's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braunstein_%28wargame%29 "Braunstein"]] game, a [[UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars Napoleonic wars]]-era scenario where players took roles as city officials, soldiers, citizens, and students in the fictional German university town of Braunstein. Arneson adapted the concept to his own scenarios which eventually became known as the ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackmoor Blackmoor]]'' campaign; this, in turn, eventually merged with Creator/GaryGygax's ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chainmail_%28game%29 Chainmail]]'' wargame and ''TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}}'' campaign to become one of the first [=RPGs=], ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.
