Our goal with Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire is to ensure the safety and well-being of our community with understood expectations of what you can expect.
Tough themes are often explored in LARP as a form of conflict or person exploration. Below details how Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire addresses them:
Activities illegal by Federal and State law are not permitted. Any such activities will be reported to the authorities, and results in immediate and permanent expulsion from the Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire group.
All participants, player and Staff alike, are expected to treat each other in a friendly manner on Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire social media, and in person at Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire events. Everyone who attends a Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire event should feel welcome and safe, and play free of harassment, discrimination, and intimidation based on, but not limited to, a player's gender, sexual preferences, race and culture, politics, religion, and financial income. If you are making another player feel uncomfortable or unsafe in any way or your behavior is offensive, you will be asked to stop and receive a Warning. "Acting as your character" is not an excuse as we do not allow character backgrounds involve triggering topics such as sexual assault. If you do not stop the offending behavior or repeat the offense, you will be immediately and permanently expelled from the Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire group. A permanent ban of known white supremacists/Nazi's, Missing Stairs, and Toxic LARPers is maintained by Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire.
There will be decisions made by Staff that will affect you and the game at some point. While Staff is always open to receive suggestions from the players, and Staff is not required to implement all suggestions, you are asked to trust that all decisions are for the benefit of the game as a whole. If you disagree with the decisions of Staff, present alternative solutions in a constructive manner. We always strive to make Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire a better game and listen to our players. However, if you simply don't like how the game is run, then perhaps this isn't the game for you.

Assume alcohol is not permitted at Galaxy Awaits: Rise of an Empire events as a permit is required for alcohol on-site and we do not get one for our weekend events. However, there may be events where we do allow alcohol and those events will be clearly marked. If you are found to be too intoxicated to participate in the game in a safe manner, you will be pulled from play until you are sober and given a Warning.
