Table Rules

Not a lot of rocket science in here, but here we go:

-The Basics:  Be courteous.   If you can't make it to a session, that stinks, but let someone know as soon as you can.  Stuff happens, we understand.  Part of enjoying a good game and story with friends is continuity.  If you're continually late or tardy, that possibly hurts and interrupts  everyone else's enjoyment.  If you're being disruptive or continually off-topic, uninvolved, or disrespectful of the participation and preparation of the other participants, we'll have to deal with it.

-No Cheating/Fudging Dice Rolls.  This should go without saying.  Roll it where everyone can see it.

-No politics, no religion (no Colts talk, which is a bit of both).  I mean, its ok to be political or religious, but we aren't there to have debates.  As in previous campaigns--check the diatribes at the door.

-We are all here to have fun.  That fun will not come at the expense of anyone else’s fun.  We know we all have limited hours in our week, and many ways to spend them.  Therefore, we are respectful of each other’s time.
-We will try to resolve issues on the most immediate level.  If there is an issue with another player that cannot be immediately resolved or you feel uncomfortable in addressing, let the Game Master know.  Our gaming time is too short to be filled up with simmering feuds.  If there is an issue with the Game Master, we can discuss it post-session or via email, honestly, with no fear of retribution.

-Life happens.  When it does, and you are going to miss the game, please call or email and let the Game Master know as soon as you can.  That way, we can plan accordingly!

-Refreshments and snacks are up to the group—if you want to organize a meal or dining for us at the gaming table, feel free to do so.  Eating should not interfere with the game—no running to pick up Taco Bell halfway through the game, or coming in 40 minutes late because you haven’t eaten.  Be respectful of the group’s time, and do what you need to before you show up.  Be ready to play at the appointed hour!
