Help on Game Types on Offer
The Main Menu of RPoL displays an area called "Games Types on Offer". People often refer to these as game categories, or game genres.
Clicking on any game type will show a brief description of that game type, and a list of all games currently in that category.
Note that games and forums do not display both in a user's Sticky List and in the "Game Types on Offer" area -- any board is only displayed in one area.
In looking at a Game or Forum listing on the Main Menu, there several pieces of information available:
- The Game Name will be in the left-most column.
- The Account Name of the GM who owns the game will be listed in the second column.
- The number of Posts in the game is listed in the third column.
- By hovering the mouse pointer over the Game Name, a tool tip may be seen which gives the date and time of the board's most recent post.
In looking at listings of available games, those marked with an asterisk (*) will be those which are searching for players. Additionally, games may be marked with an M or an A, signalling that their content is for Mature players, or Adult players only. For more information on our content policies, see the documents on our Mature Games Policy or our Adult Games Policy, respectively.
