Emergency: “Emergency, stop playing.” Everyone should stop their scene.
Players should announce their intentions to give the other player the chance to say a safe word:
– Green. When someone uses this, it means the rest of the players can raise their game intensity. It is a suggestion, not an order.
– Yellow. When someone uses this, the other players have to lower their game intensity. This is an order you have to follow.
– Red. The scene stops immediately. This is an order. If a participant uses this, the other players involved in the scene should ask them what they need.
PLEASE NOTE THAT RACISM (based on in-game heritage), CLASS STRUGGLE AND XENOPHOBIA ARE PART OF THE GAME.
When acting out a public sex scene, one you want other players to witness, it needs to look like sex; this will be covered in the workshop. While we acknowledge that sexual violence plays a part in colonialism and oppression, we have decided to steer away from sexual violence in this game.
This is an out of game space that works as a safety net for the players. If your play is having any negative impact on you, you can come here and eat, rebalance, relax, or sleep. You’ll find a walkie to contact the safety team.
We will not sell real alcohol during the game and ask players to drink responsibly if they want to bring their own beverages. Of course, we will remove the players that aren’t so responsible for the game. There will be non-alcoholic beverages representing in-game alcohol.
Gamemasters or other players can ask if a player is ok with this sign:
You can reply with:
“Yes, I am OK”.
This hand signal, which means the player doesn’t quite know how they feel, or that it’s neither good or bad. Please ask the player if they want to stop the scene.
“No, I am not”.
Please bring the player to the safe space. If the player doesn’t answer, stop the scene.
NotOnlyLarp has a First Aid Team to deal with any health problems that might occur during the event. Please inform us about any health problems or allergies we should take into consideration and the way to deal with them should they arise. We also want to know any player willing to volunteer in helping our First Aid Team.
We have a first aid kit, but this does not include medication; everyone has to bring their own.
Unfortunately we don’t have a psychologist in the team.
NotOnlyLarp has a Safety Team to deal with any issue that can be considered a violation of the Code of Conduct or threaten attendee safety.
Feel free to raise any complaint to our Safety Team. Each complaint received will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

NotOnlyLarp’s definition of harassment may not necessarily align with legal definitions of harassment. Therefore, attendees should regard the following guidelines as expectations of conduct in addition to legally actionable actions. In other words, the legal expectations of tangible proof are not necessary for the Safety Team to take action upon a complaint.
For our purposes, harassment includes:
This harassment policy applies to both in-person and online activities. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Not Only Larp volunteers and committee members are also subject to the anti-harassment policy.
We will provide members of the Safety Team with detailed instructions and training procedures in case of a violation of code emergency. Attendees can report harassment at any time:
Before the event: If you are privy to information about harassment towards yourself or someone else by someone in the community at large, please email us at email@example.com. Please include as many details as you consider necessary. These messages will remain strictly confidential, known only to the safety team. Reports received about registered attendees before the event are subject to the same consequences as those received during the game.
Please note that if a harassment issue occurs, at least one of us will need to speak firsthand to the person involved. We will keep any identifying information restricted to the safety team. It’s our policy because we know how misinformation can be spread accidentally between multiple people. We trust everyone here to be honest, but we will require firsthand information before we can take action as a general policy. Anyone in the safety team who personally knows the people involved in the incident won’t be able to make decisions about it.
During the event:
If a violation of the Code of Conduct becomes known, please a member of the Safety Team as soon as necessary. You can reach them personally or through any other member of NotOnlyLarp’s team. We will also provide contact information for on-staff Safety members at the start of the event in case of emergency.
After the event: You may choose to wait until after the event to report a violation, in which case, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Disciplinary Steps are organized into two levels based upon the severity of the violation.
Level 1: Monitoring the individual in question, pulling the individual aside to discuss the violation, and/or issuing verbal warnings.
Removing the individual from the game and, potentially, from future NotOnlyLarp events.
