What is the RPG Rating?

The RPG Rating System allows rpg admins and writers to generate a lil’ badge to show others what kind of content they expect. We’ve found the content types of most concern are language, sex, and violence, so the RPG Rating measures the intensity of those kinds of content from 0 to 3.


Have you taken the tiny survey yet? It’s so fast and it’ll make me very happy!

Swearing is generally permitted, with some limitations. Sexual content is permitted, with some limitations. Explicit violence is permitted.
Swearing and mature language is permitted. Sexual content may be described in detail. Extreme violence is permitted.


Who rates my site?

You do! Admins can create an RPG Rating that best represents what kind of content is permitted in their community, or individual role-players can create a rating to quickly show a preference for levels of content.

What’s wrong with MPAA, ESRB, etc?

Other content rating systems like MPAA or ESRB are primarily used to make recommendations for parents on what would be appropriate for children. RPG Rating does not evaluate appropriateness; instead it generally quantifies the intensity of content types important to role-players.

Do I need to post your button?

No. RPG Rating is not an affiliate program. You are free to use RPG Rating without linking back.

Will you post my button?

Sure! Submit your site to the RPG Rating directory.

What rating is allowed by my host’s terms of service?

Please be sure to consult your web host if you have any questions about what kind of content is permitted. An RPG Rating is not a guarantee that an RPG conforms with terms of service.

Buy me a coffee?

Maintaining this service is so much fun, but it does take time and money.

Help me out and buy me a coffee if you think this is cool.
