Welcome to ARC Inc.! We do what we can to support each other, recognise our volunteers and create a positive and inclusive community so that everyone can have a meaningful and enjoyable time at our events. ARC Inc. members are expected to follow our Code of Conduct at all times when engaging with our events and social media. ARC Inc. is also bound by our constitution.
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.
