Code of Conduct

VaesenCon is meant to be a fun environment where we can all gather together to play tabletop roleplaying games free from any form of harassment. This applies to all participants of VaesenCon regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, physical appearance, disability, or other identifying factors. Harassment, whether from VaesenCon organizers, GMs, or players, will not be tolerated.

We will not tolerate any form of hate speech or bigotry in VaesenCon, this includes so-called "in-character" bigotry. Use of intolerant attitudes of the game-era as a means to "explain away" your language or behavior will not be accepted. 

It is expected that if someone introduces themselves in game with particular pronouns they are to be used. It is not open for discussion. Intentionally misgendering someone for the purpose of making the other person uncomfortable will not be tolerated.

There are to be no harassment or threats directed to participants, organizers, GMs, or sponsors of VaesenCon. Please respect other people's privacy and do not DM others without permission.

Be polite and respectful to each other.

Though VaesenCon is not explicitly over 18, gothic-horror can sometimes lead to mature themes. Scenario listings will contain content warnings so people can make informed decisions about which sessions they wish to participate in. Content warnings, however, are not an excuse to include unnecessarily graphic imagery. If someone uses a Safety Tool during a session, it is to be respected and the uncomfortable behavior must immediately stop.

This list is not exhaustive, and if something unforeseen comes up during VaesenCon, the Moderators have full discretion to deal with the issue presented.

We have a ZERO-tolerance policy with breaking the Code of Conduct. Failure to follow the Code of Conduct will result in removal from VaesenCon and the convention server. Any player or GM may contact the Moderators at any time to report and deal with a situation that may arise.
