Things I do not want to see in RPGs

After a lot of thought, I think it may be best to address this thing directly.

There are some things that are pretty well guaranteed to kill (or at least seriously curtail) my enjoyment of a game. To wit:

What I do not want to see

  • No on-screen torture. To be clear, this includes water boarding and other sorts of things which our current president doesn't classify as torture. I also do not want to hear details about off-screen torture.

  • No on-screen rape or child molestation. Again, I also don't want to hear details about off-screen same.

  • While violence may be a fact of life, I do not enjoy seeing graphic violence perpetrated on helpless human beings (or animals).

  • No PvP (player versus player) RP PC versus PC infighting. Just not my thing, sorry.


If you comment, do keep in mind that games are supposed to be fun for *everyone* involved.

I suspect this was aimed at your players.. but from my perspective, I feel the last two are a little restrictive in some games. For instance, Werewolf. Werewolves are creatures of violence, they solve their internal conflicts through fighting each other.

I can certainly see your point in many places, though. I'm constantly having troubles with some of the games I play, because the GMS are fine with this torture thing.

With the last one do you mean no PVP combat or just roleplaying in general? Just curious. No PVP combat I could see, but no roleplaying against each other? That sounds odd to me. Just wanted to clarify.

What about a shapeshifter who starts out as a princess and morphs into the Ravenous BugBlatter Beast of Trall when the good knight tries to make it a really good night?

:D
