RPG Ratings Explained

1 post in this topic

Here at 17th Shard, we take our commitment to building a positive community very seriously. As such, we strive to maintain an environment that all of our users find comfortable and welcoming. Part of this is moderating things like language and content. You might already be aware of this from the type of language you (haven't) seen on the rest of the boards, but RPs also introduce other scenarios the rest of the forum doesn't have to worry about so much: namely, violence and sexual content. And so we've set the following guidelines, based on the Universal RPG Rating System, to let you know what we expect. Please note, however, that the board staff reserves the right to modify these guidelines as we see fit. That said, the rating for the 17th Shard RP System is as follows:


But what does that mean? Well, the letters at the top of the image represent three categories of content: Language, Sexual Content, and Violence. Our ratings can be described as:

  • Language 1: Infrequent, mild swearing is permitted.
  • Sexual Content 1: Mild sexual innuendo and references permitted. No explicit representations or references to genitalia or sex acts.
  • Violence 2: Graphic is permitted. Explicit description or in-game narration of violence is allowed.


If you have any questions, or if you see content that you believes violates these ratings, please contact a staff member immediately.
