Knowing that organized play brings together people with different expectations and styles of play at the table, how do we ensure that everyone has fun? Designing fun-optimized materials is obviously a big part of that, but so is setting ground rules and expectations for the event.
The 13th Age Organized Play Anti-Harassment Policy (PDF) includes:
- The 5 principles of 13th Age organized play
- What to do if you’re being harassed at a 13th Age event
- What happens to the harasser?
- GM guidelines on how to implement and enforce the policy
Many thanks to Anna Kreider (Thou Art But a Warrior, Go Make Me a Sandwich) for helping us draft this policy, and for providing valuable feedback and reality checks at every step. This policy looks to the example of other convention and game company anti-harassment policies, most notably OH Nerd, CONvergence, KristaCon, Nerd NYC, Geek Feminism and Privateer Press.
