Pathfinder Society Community Standards (from http://paizo.com/pathfinderSociety/policies)
The Pathfinder Society (PFS) is an inclusive social event open to everyone. It is our intention that everybody enjoys gaming in a safe and fun environment. While conflict between characters may arise, at no time should a player feel excluded or threatened at the table. We ask all participants to respect their fellow players and to work together to create positive memorable experiences. To this end, we reserve the right to refuse participation to any person for inappropriate or illegal conduct. All refusals of participation must be accompanied by a reason, duration of refusal, and the criteria for rejoining PFS activities.
Inappropriate conduct includes, but is not limited to, the excessive use of foul language, physical or verbal aggression/intimidation, lewd conduct, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, slander, stalking and harassment/discrimination based on gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion.
Complaints under this policy should be brought to the Event Organizer or a Venture-Officer, who will work to resolve the issue or escalate the issue to the next level of Venture-Officer. As an alternative, issues may be reported to the Organized Play Coordinator (OPC) via email at email@example.com. Issues will be resolved at the lowest level possible. In case of escalation, the OPC is the final arbiter of any dispute arising from application of this policy.
Nothing in this policy is intended to discourage any person from calling the police or other appropriate organizations. Event organizers or Venture-Officers are available to help participants contact local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. We value your attendance.
While not illegal or even necessarily inappropriate, we recognize that PFS organized play campaign includes themes that may result in uncomfortable situations arising at the gaming table. In these instances, we request players identify the issue to the table Game Master (GM), whether vocally or by passing a note. We ask that GMs help the table respect attendees' sensibilities and reduce/redirect problematic themes once identified. Participants asked to stop any problematic behavior are expected to comply immediately or will be asked to leave the table.
It is our intention that everybody enjoys gaming in a safe and fun environment. While conflict between characters may arise, at no time should a player feel excluded or threatened at the table. We ask all participants to respect their fellow players and to work together to create positive memorable experiences. Once again, the intention of PFS org play is to provide a safe and fun environment. The above guidelines reference how we may achieve our goals. By sitting at a PFS table, participants are agreeing to the terms and conditions of Pathfinder Society organized play.
Richmond, VA Pathfinder Society Community Standards
1. The Golden Rule - Behave Appropriately
Please be aware that Richmond PFS game days are public games held in public locations. Keep your language, actions and other behaviors at a reasonable standard. While you don't have to act like you're having a holiday dinner with your grandparents, please refrain from engaging in activities that could be reasonably be considered harmful or offensive to another person, such as using profanity, making offensive jokes or otherwise disrespecting players. You may or may not know every player at your table and what they're comfortable with, but you probably don't know the people wandering around the shop or curiously watching. Please respect our hosting stores and recognize that your behavior reflects on them.
2. Harassment and Discrimination
PFS Richmond does not tolerate bullying, harassment or discrimination by or against players for any reason. If you feel that someone has been harassing you, please contact an event organizer or Venture Officer , either in person or via our email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you see someone harassing people or engaging in discriminatory acts, please inform an event organizer or Venture Officer immediately. We take all reports seriously.
3. We're All In This Together
Not only should you abide by these rules, you should also hold other members of the community up to the same standards. If you see someone violating any of these standards, talk to them! If you're uncomfortable talking to them, let an event organizer or Venture Officer know.
4. Respect Our Host Stores
Our host stores generously offer us table space and event day support. Please make sure that you respect any store policies and that you leave the game area better than you found it. In addition, recognize that your behavior reflects both positively and negatively on the host store.
5. No Adult Topics
Some players are interested in games that touch on more mature topics, including drugs and sexual activity. Public gamedays are not the appropriate opportunity for such themes, so we encourage you to find other players who are interested in such topics and form a home game where everyone can be on board with the topics covered. If it isn't appropriate for a PG (or PG-13 in limited cases) movie, it isn't appropriate for the public gameday.
