Role-Playing Games

As of February 28 2022, DreamLyrics had 9 active games spread across the five message game categories, which is the same as the prior month. For a game to be considered active it must have had at least one post during the calendar month. Note that gallery forums are excluded from this count.

Which sections, or game genre, had the most activity? ‘Games’ in the charts below refers to the number of games in the category. ‘Posts’ refers to the total number of posts for all the games in the category.
Code
Section             Games Posts 

Fantasy             3(nc)   651
Modern/Historical   2(nc)   112
Alternate Reality   3(nc)    28
Science Fiction     1(nc)    12

TOTALS              9(nc)   803

These 9 active games involved 803 messages. The count for this month represents about 89 messages per game.

Of course, averages hide all the interesting variation. Which games were most active?

Non-Role-Playing Games and Other Activities

In addition to the role-playing games, DreamLyrics features several other games and general chat areas. What other games? Take a look. You’ll find most of this action in the Fun & Games section.

Game Masters & Players

How many active players do we have here in the DreamLyrics community? If you look on the main message page, you'll see the name of our newest member and a number indicating how many members. That number is a trifle misleading since it includes a few test members, used by our sysops and developers as they test out various enhancements.


This list shows our game masters and how many games they moderate. Please note that there are some games that have two people assigned as game masters, yet this chart does not indicate a specific GM’s activity for a given month when shared with another as some games might have the second GM acting as a player too.

Is it any surprise that 8 of the top ten posters and 9 of the posters with the highest word count are all playing on 9 3/4?
