COMPANY EXPECTATIONS OF BEHAVIOR
Any and all subsidiaries of Three Raccoon Productions Inc are subject to these rules and policies. All may go above and beyond these standards, but all must be cleared by the company.
Three Raccoon Productions Inc reserves the right to deny anyone entry on behavioral grounds. All participants, staff or player, are subject to the same standards. No position “protects” anyone from consequence of action. Everyone is responsible for their behavior, regardless of cause. Example, if someone is rude to you and your reaction is to physically retaliate, you will be held to that behavior of violence.
All safety and community standards hold a zero tolerance policy. Listed below is a large but not all inclusive set of reasons a person will be asked to leave.
Assault and/or battery: physical or verbal
Denigration of individuals or groups based on but not limited to:
Gender identity or presentation
Race or color
Age, body, size
Unwanted or inappropriate physical contact or invasion of personal space
Casual touch or sexual; always ask before physically laying a hand on any person
This includes verbal unwanted advances or attention, if you are asked to not interact with an individual, honor this.
Body or gender policing
THE TOPIC AND EXISTENCE OF SEXUAL ASSAULT, PHYSICAL OR VERBAL, DOES NOT EXIST IN THIS COMPANY, GAME, OR ANY GAME PLOT. EVER. IT DOES NOT EXIST IN OUR WORLD. ANY JOKES OR MENTION OF THIS WILL BE SEVERELY DEALT WITH, UP TO AND INCLUDING BAN FROM GAME.
Anything illegal in the real world is illegal in game. Any accusations of assault or harm will immediately be taken to staff, and the police will be called. We as game runners often think we can handle things, keep it “in the family”. We are not officers of the law. We are entertainers and nerds. The police will be called to handle anything in this realm. That is safer for everyone. HEALTH AND SAFETY
We have serious standards and care for all humans in our lives. We have dedicated caretakers on staff, who will be identified before game-on each time. We have medical staff, if you have a condition you wish to share in case of emergency, please let them know. The dedicated caretakers are there for you, if they are in game they will go out of game with you no questions asked. We utilize the OK Check-in System as other games do, it is a very effective tool to unobtrusively ask for help or say you are ok. Anything you say to a caretaker is confidential unless you give permission for it to be discussed and who with, unless it is illegal.
We all have boundaries, physical and mental. If you come against one of your own, and need to escape; please do. If you are uncomfortable with something, scene or person; place your fist on your head and exit the area. Find a staff member, if they are not a caretaker they will find one. If something seems off or not ok, unsafe; speak up immediately. In mods, if something is unsafe or someone is hurt, call a hold.
Always ask for verbal, VERBAL, consent before touching anyone or including them in anything that might have triggers. Before mods with such content, these conditions will be told to participants in advance (EX: splatter mod- blood or goo or water, flashing lights, loud sounds, tight spaces, dark spaces, etc.). Please keep your triggers in mind, and if you cannot be in any of the conditions listed do not go on the mod.
THERE IS NO DRUGS OR ALCOHOL, ALLOWED ON SITE DURING GAME. SET-UP ARRIVAL TO TEAR-DOWN DEPARTURE. THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE AND ZERO TOLERANCE, AND WILL RESULT IN THE POLICE BEING CALLED. THIS INCLUDES USING SUCH SUBSTANCES IN YOUR PERSONAL VEHICLE.
Staying aware of how you are doing through the game is critical; we don’t want you to keep pushing yourself until you break. Do not stay in situations out of not wanting to be a problem or a burden. If you are not doing well, or things have gotten beyond what you are comfortable with, or you just don’t trust whoever you are in a situation or role-play with, remove yourself. Go see a caretaker, check in just to say how you were feeling, why it wasn’t ok, and we can make sure such situations don’t reoccur; for you or others we may not have realized have similar triggers.
If you see anyone who seems to not being doing well, emotionally or physically, it could be real could be role play. To check on them, or if you’re being checked on, place your hand over your heart in an ‘OK’ hand sign and make direct eye contact if possible. The person being checked on will signal back with 3 options.
1. Sending an OK symbol back in the same manner
2. Tilting a level hand at same height over heart, indicating they are not sure; the person checking should take this as a signal to check on them further and possibly remove them from the situation
3. Thumbs down means they are not ok and to get them extracted from the situation immediately.
All of these do not require a hold to be called unless a large scale situation has occurred, that goes beyond an OK check. When you help a player out of the situation the check caused, you ask them if they want to go OOC and regroup, talk to staff for a little, go to a quiet area. If they need to talk, we are there for them. If they just need a space, there will be no inquisition or judgement involved. We are here for you, and only you.
