Groups are used on PaperDemon.com to

  • Contain items and characters for your Art RPG
  • Control access to moderating forums, characters, and items for your Art RPG

Your Art RPG will likely have a main group for your Art RPG that anyone can join and then one or more restricted auth groups that are used for the staff members of your Art RPG. Currently the groups feature is only made available to partnered Art RPGs or groups with special circumstances.

Creating a group

Creating new groups is currently restricted. Contact us if you're in need of a group for managing your Art RPG.

Group types

A group can be one of the following

  • Open - Anyone on PaperDemon.com can view your group and click to join it. Usually the main group for an Art RPG is setup as this type.
  • Closed - The group is visible but no one can join it. The only way to join is for a group leader to manually add you. Usually Auth groups are setup as closed.
  • Hidden - It's a secret to everybody.
