So if you were a player & the DM, who normally curses the same amount or less than anyone else at the table, were playing a semi-recurring NPC who talks a lot like Swearingen from Deadwood, which turns PG13 into an R rating in two sentences (& succinctly conveys the core of the NPC's personality), you wouldn't play that game or if you DM, you would stay away from really portraying the NPC the way it would really speak in the world it lives in?PG-13. The Indiana Jones vibe is what I'm looking for in a campaign.
I'd never run nor play in an R-rated or above campaign.
Still, every major ttrpg board acts (and moderates) as if this rating system is completely natural and obvious and should apply to published game supplements, so there's probably more to it than that...Oh no worries, a lot of Americans agree this system for rating films is insane and inconsistent (and there is even evidence the MPAA is corrupt), but as a rule of thumb for describing your game to others, it is a familiar system (for Americans at least) even if (as I said in my OP) it has clear and obvious problems as a system for something that is so subjective.
That's very unfortunate for "the American". If I had to guess they probably didnt shut up for the entire session.
Thats just ridiculous. Sounds like a waste of drugs and probably the wrong place to be doing that type of thing. Lifes too short, direct your energy in the right places. If Im looking to off-handedly get laid it isnt gonna be on a D&D/RPG site.Sent a dick pic to one of the others. Wasn't actually gaming just turned up and did his thing.
Totally off his face. Lives in Maine and had reasonable chats with him before.
No one was actually offended but we hang out in that channel to avoid the Deutschland Uber alles types and CSA edgelords.

I cant quote the actual rule but I think you are right, want to say 3 is the limit. I taught at ITT when the new 3rd Star Trek movie came out in 2016. A colleague went to see it and said Spock and Kirk threw out a few bombs but just enough to get it a PG-13.I dont know if it's a myth, but I always heard PG-13 was only allowed one major cuss word. Two bumps you up to R.
