Hey, all....I would like to ask, what is the limit on the amount of horror or gruesomeness that could be shown/written about in a RPG?

Also what about content matter...what can't be talked about and what can be?

P.S. Language as well?

You should ask the RPG mods, as it comes down to what they actually enforce. I don't think I've ever seen anything but extreme profanity being stopped, people have gone as far as pedophila and descriptions of rape before.

in my experiance with the world of blood and gore in rpgs and fanfictions is that if it pertains to a part of the story no one really ever has a problem. Extreme rape scenes is evidently peoples buttons I learned the hard way, but other than that almost everyone on this site is pretty cool with blood and gore.

@darkchild:

Would gouging someones eyes out, beheading someone, and shooting someone in the back of the head with a blunderbuss be too much?

That's probably fine and less extreme than a lot of the stuff I've seen in RPGs.
