Code of Conduct
Any LARP Event will have inherent dangers and it is in
everyone’s best interests to minimise these risks as much as possible. The
rules presented here supersede any other game rules and are in place ultimately
to insure both personal and event safety.
Respect each other and yourself.
Illegal Substances and items will not be tolerated at any Avoss Event.
Any real-world prejudice and bullying, be it racial, sexual or otherwise will not be tolerated.
Any item to be used in combat must be approved by a Marshall. Any person wishing to engage in combat must also be cleared.
Non-Consensual Sexual content will not be tolerated, neither will explicit sexual content.
The Avoss team retains the ability to remove or decline entry to any person or item that does not meet the requirements set out by these or any other rules.
A Note on Cheating
This is a LARP game the focus of which is providing an immersive roleplaying experience. We are all here to tell stories together and for each other.
Cheating is not going to be actively policed. It is shitty and it is covered by the “Don’t be a dick” rule already, but we are not going to be overly concerned unless your cheating impacts on the experience of others in a way that we feel is damaging.
Please don’t cheat, but please also do not seek to police your fellow players excessively. Certainly do not stop play to do so. If you are very concerned then find a time that is appropriate and will not further impact the experience of yourself and those around you and tell an organiser about what you are concerned about.
They will do what they feel is best for the experience we are all trying to have together.
