Individuals have the right to express discomfort or sensitivity to topics and to request that the topics no longer be presented to them. Integrity: We seek to foster a creative and authentic experience for our players. Participants should adhere to the rules of the game and not seek to gain an advantage through illegitimate means.

Our policy applies to EVERYONE. Exhibitors, attendees, speakers, guests, professionals, press, staff, volunteers, and security are all subject to our Anti-Harassment Policy. Anyone can report harassment. If someone's behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact security or staff. We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse as much as reasonably possible. If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of TTRPGC,
Remember: Cosplay is not consent. Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with others, always ask first and respect that person's right to say no. When at TTRPGC, be respectful, be nice, be cool, and be kind to each other.
Hate symbols are not permitted at TTRPGC, including as part of cosplay, and TTRPGC will not allow costumes that contain hate symbols or appropriate the symbolism of hate groups, including, but not limited to, historical/comic-related/satirical costumes that are associated with Nazis.
