Mature Content Policy (Read 1st)
RPoL's Mature Games Policy

The following Mature Games Policy applies to RPoL.  If you are running or participating in a Mature game on this site, you must understand and abide by this policy.  By participating in a Mature game, you are responsible for upholding this policy, and failure to do so could result in loss of site privileges or access.

Note that this policy is the official, up-to-date policy.  If any policy posted elsewhere on the site is different to this one, this is the one which holds precedence.

Questions and comments should be directed to Moderators using rMail.

Adult and Mature Ratings

Mature games are games which have (as some minor portion of them) mature themes, strong language, drug use, and/or extensive violence.  Mature games use the Mature Content flag to warn potential readers that some of the game material may be considered offensive.  Despite this flag, Mature Games must remain suitable to all ages.

The difference between a Mature game and an Adult game is the descriptive level and the amount of mature content in the game.  Games which focus exclusively on mature content for their plot or which describe such content in graphic detail are required to display the Adult rating.

Note that there is now a FAQ related to this Policy; titled the Adult & Mature Games FAQ, it is located under the heading "General RPoL Information".
