Free Play Area: Push-Button Gaming!



The AMRN is happy to present the Free Play Area. This area is open to anyone who wants to play a game. You don't have to ask permission to start your own campaign; all you have to do is click the "Start New Thread" link!

There are a few guidelines:

  • This is, for the most part, an unregulated area of the AMRN. Admin will not interfere unless specifically requested to do so by a player or GM. However, Admin retains the right to close any game, for any reason, at any time.
  • The GM is the final judge on all game-related matters. Admin will not decide any in-game issues. Admin will only intervene for some breach of the AMRN's general policies.
  • Though the AMRN uses a modified version of The Window, you can use any game system you want!
  • Please be respectful of other players and the GM in charge of your game.
  • Games should be based on a specific manga and/or anime series (such as Naruto), or should be set in an anime or manga genre (such as "shoujo").
  • Once your game has established itself, you may ask Heather to create additional threads for your game, such as an Announcement thread, Out of Character thread, or a General Discussion thread.
  • If your game contains or will contain language or situations that would not be appropriate for all ages, please let potential players and readers know in your opening post.
  • If, in the opinion of Admin, your game is successful, then you may be offered the option of assigning Permanent status to your game, and you may be offered a moderator account!
    • A Permanent Game is moved out of the Free Play Area and given its own board.
    • Permanent Game GMs have moderator accounts. A moderator account will allow you to edit your own threads and pages as you see fit within your game.
    • As a moderator, you will be awarded access to the GM Board, where the GMs meet and discuss issues related to the site and games.
    • Permanent games are also offered free web hosting on for game-related websites. (You are responsible to create the website yourself, and Heather will upload it for you.)
    • NOTE: While the Free Play Area allows you to use whatever system you want, all Permanent Games are based upon the modified version of The Window used on the AMRN. If your game does not use The Window, and your game is offered Permanent status, then you and your players will need to switch to The Window format if you wish to make the game Permanent.
That's all there is to it! Now go start a game!

[These guidelines were originally written by Mr. Justice, and revised by Heather.]
