Greece actually invented it. Theatre was the first form of acting that was structured and recorded. Many of the fantasy creatures we know of today come from greek and roman myths.To think of a game almost completely similar though is a waste of breath. Do you think they had Bingo during Greek times? Scrabble? Chess? If you consider Chess you have a game that inspired millions of ideas throughout its history. It's no doubt D&D and MMORPG's evolved from the Greek play.

Huh? You're all over the place... Can you make that point more clearly, please? Are you talking about chess, or fantasy creatures or theater here?

And it all started when Fred Flintstone walked in the door and Wilma said, "How did it go at the quary today dear?" and Fred said, "Kinda hard to say honey, let me draw some pictures on the wall with some finger paints." The next thing you know you got cavemen tagging up caves all over ancient France telling about the sabar tooth tiger that got away, and how it was "THIS BIG," which leads to some guy trying to explain how the battle went, drawing a diagram of the field in the dirt and saying, "OK, imagine that the field was sectioned off in a grid of 64 sections, and our King was here, and their King was over there, and the knights were here and we had some clergymen over here and the foot soldiers were up front and, wow it was a heck of a fight." And then his friend says, "Yea, but if we add a bunch more squares and get some little ivory pieces and put some letters on it, then we can play a game where we pretend we have an awsome vocabulary. Lets call it Scrabble." Then the other guy says, "We weren't talking about Scrabble, we were talking about WAR." And the Scrabble guy says, "But peace is much better than war. I'm burning my draft card." And the chess guy says, "Damned hippie." And the hippie says, "Lets role play. I'll be you, and you be me." And the War guy says, "I refuse to get in touch with my feminine side, you damn hippie therapist." And the therapist says, "But it is important to express your feelings in a safe environment." And the war guy says, "Shut up you damn hippie, I'm going home to gank the crap out of some cloth wearing pansy... as soon as I get my dailys done."Yadda yadda yadda.I swear, more people come up with more ways to completely avoid the content of the articles on this site in order to post wildly inane comments... It's no wonder we live in a country... for those of us living in the USA, where an illegal alian who has broken our laws in order come into our country illegally, demand constitutional rights which are for legal citizens and legal residents, and then claim that loitering in the parking lot of a legitimate business as a "day laborer" is Free Speech, and therefore protected under the constitution.Oh wait... another inane comment. *sigh* There is no escape!
