What is not allowed in WIP's and published games?


#1

I have been wondering what is and isn’t allowed in WIP’s and Hosted of Games. What is too graphic to make a game not be published?

The “Looking for Writers” pages gives the gist of it for games published under either label. As for WIP, I believe the same boundaries apply:

  • Games must not contain deeply offensive material, such as scenes that glorify sexual violence or racist attitudes.

Obviously different people can differ about what “deeply offensive” means and so forth, but I don’t think it’s useful to make a checklist of specific actions that are or aren’t allowed because these are narratives, not things in a vacuum. If you aren’t sure if it’s ok for a HG, check with CoG staff.
