Our Game Masters welcome critical feedback on both what went well and what went poorly for you at game. Knowing what you enjoyed helps them know where to best invest their time and what sorts of techniques to re-use and behaviours to continue. Knowing what went poorly helps them to re-calibrate their techniques, try something new or consider how various elements within the game are impacting on their players.
Some people have experienced trauma or have developed phobias significant enough to require foreknowledge of certain situations that may arise in the game. Sometimes it’s enough to know that certain themes and situations might arise, sometimes it’s best to avoid the game completely. While we will try to alert people as to the likely triggers involved in a game, knowing in advance what may upset people will help us either find alternatives to the content or, where an alternative simply isn’t feasible, alert the player to that fact.
In the end, the decision to attend or not to attend a game that has identified triggering content belongs to the player and is not a decision a Game Organiser can make for them. However, it is the responsibility of the affected player to acknowledge and manage their emotions as best as they can.
Sometimes you might encounter something at a game that goes against our code of conduct and our organisational values. Perhaps you’ve noticed cheating, experienced aggression from another player (as opposed to their character) or were bullied or harassed due to your age, gender, sexuality, race or physical ability. If this occurs, you can use our online form to give us the information needed to pursue it. Alternatively you can contact our ARC Support Person on firstname.lastname@example.org.
