Darkwood Nights strives to maintain a fun and exciting atmosphere for Live Action Role-play (LARP) while also making people feel welcome. Doing so provides an enjoyable and entertaining experience for everyone.
In a game such as Darkwood Nights which can be socially competitive and at times high adrenaline, it can be easy to come across misunderstandings and disagreements. This Code of Conduct outlines what is expected at our events and on any Darkwood Nights public or private forums such as Discord, the website or Facebook pages.
Darkwood Nights expects our members, staff and guests to behave in an appropriate, mature, and responsible manner. We expect common sense to rule and for everyone involved to have a general sense of the safety and well-being of those around them. Members, staff and guests are expected to treat others with courtesy and respect. Harassment or intolerance is unacceptable.
All members, staff and guests are expected to abide by the laws of the land to include all federal, state, local laws, statutes, ordinances and site specific rules.
While we understand that the nature of roleplay and acting will create in-character drama, we do not expect for this drama and any hurt feelings to spill over into the realm of out-of-character interactions.
Leave the drama for your character; do not bring it into real life.
Darkwood Nights may sanction attendees at an event for any reason. We will endeavor to provide a verbal warning to you and allow you to correct your behavior before removing you from the event, when appropriate. There may be times when we immediately remove an attendee when it is determined such removal to be in the best interest of Darkwood Nights, our attendees or the hosting space.
