Role Playing Games, or RPGs, on the blockchain give the player control over a fictional character with unique attributes, powers and weapons. In an RPG players need to use or command their character, in order to complete quests, earn experience points and increase the character’s power. RPGs on the blockchain strongly connect with non-fungible tokens (NFTs), as players need to acquire more and better weapons to improve their character. 

RPG are available in a variety of subgenres. There are the more action-oriented action RPGs, and of course turn-based role playing games. Especially turn-based RPGs are very suitable to embrace on-chain mechanics, because the game doesn’t progress require super high speed. Obviously the MMORPG genre can also be seen as a role playing game.

A player-character in an RPG often has some basic attributes. Think about common examples, like strength, defense, agility, charisma, and magic. These player-characters can level up, and increase their attributies. In addition their weapons and clothes can enhance these attributes significantly. This benefits the player in battle. This particular game genre often uses a wide set of game rules, as well as a method to define luck. In traditional RPGs this meant rolling dice, but in video games luck is often a character attribute on its own.
