Rules of the Convention
Just a friendly reminder on some of the rules we need
to have for the convention:
1: Be courteous to everyone. The guy you hate so much
from the game that you’re bitching about at the con may be standing right
next to you. Hell, he may own the game and have access to your pfile. So
use some tact.
2: During the round table, its important that everyone
allow the person who has the floor the opportunity to speak without having
to yell over you. So keep the chatter down please.
3: No drinking in the pool, vomiting, urinating or
doing anything to the chalet that will cost me my $750 damage deposit.
4: No fighting. Duh.
5: Watch your language. There are children present at
6: No one under 18 is allowed without their parents.
7: Bring your own booze, don’t be drinking other
8: Don’t be a mooch. If we order pizza, pitch in.
Don’t stay overnight in someone’s chalet or cabin without explicit
permission. Clean up after yourself. Help keep the place clean.
9: Keep your clothes on in public. Unless you’re really
hawt and female. Then just don’t let kids see.
10: Don’t bitch about the game or I’ll ignore all of
your con card turn ins or just ask you to leave the con.
11: Don’t harass Scorn for stuff that you could
otherwise do in email.
12: If you bring kids, WATCH THEM!! You will be asked
to leave if other people end up having to be a parent for you because you
got drunk or are otherwise just a terrible parent.
13: Smoking and Pets are not allowed inside the
cabin. DO NOT DROP YOUR CIGGARETTE BUTTS ON THE GROUND!!!!
