Rules and Policies

Harassment Policy

Cork RPG Con is an inclusive, family-friendly convention. We expect all attendees to
treat each other with common courtesy and respect.
Cork RPG Con does not permit harassment with regard to gender, sexual orientation,
dress, age, race, religion or lack thereof, political affiliation, disability, or involvement
or noninvolvement in any group or activity at Cork RPG Con.
Harassment includes any behavior that annoys, alarms, demeans, or threatens
another person or group. Harassment includes (but is not limited to) verbal
comments, the use of overly sexual imagery in public areas, intimidation, stalking,
unauthorized photography or recording, inappropriate physical contact, unwanted
sexual attention, and the disruption of events or activities.
If you feel you are being harassed, you fear for your safety, or you witness someone
harassing others, contact a Cork RPG Con staff member, volunteer, or hotel security
immediately. All harassment reports will be investigated and dealt with. Possible
consequences of harassment include, but are not limited to, the revocation of the
offending party’s Cork RPG Con badge, ejection from the venue, and the
involvement of local authorities.

majority of events are at no charge.  So we will help identify available alternatives for
you using the event schedule.

Lost or Misplaced Badges and Event Tickets

We cannot replace lost, stolen, or forgotten badges or event tickets. Such items must
be repurchased at full cost. We recommend that you check with the Cork RPG Con

RPG Con assumes no responsibility for lost, stolen, or forgotten materials.

Waiver of Liability

The purchase of a Cork RPG Con badge admits one person to all basic activities and
exhibits at Cork RPG Con during regularly scheduled hours for the day or days
specified on the badge. Some designated activities may require payment of a
separate, additional fee. By accepting a badge and in consideration for being
admitted to Cork RPG Con, the holder consents to being recorded (by audio and/or
visual means) for exhibition and exploitation by any means in all media, including
without limitation the Internet, worldwide in perpetuity. The badge holder releases
Cork RPG Con from any liability for loss or damage to
persons or property, infringement of any right, or any other claim or course of action
of any kind; authorizes and permits Cork RPG Con and its designees, which
includes but is not limited to all sponsors, exhibitors, and
contractors, to use and authorize the use of his or her name, voice, likeness, and all
reproductions thereof by any means and in all media now and hereafter known,
including without limitation the Internet, for all purposes worldwide in perpetuity; and
agrees to comply with all the rules and regulations of the convention. Cork RPG Con
reserves the right to deny entry or remove from the convention facilities any
person who in its sole and absolute discretion is behaving or
threatening to behave in a manner which it reasonably considers to be disruptive.

GM “No Show” Policy

We understand that sometimes unforeseen events cause a GM to miss their game
and deeply appreciate the hundreds of skilled GMs that run events for everyone’s
enjoyment. We want to encourage timely communication and dissuade people from
“no showing” the people that signed up to play in there events.  If you as a GM
realize that you have an issue that will prevent you from running an event as
scheduled, please contact us immediately. Cork RPG Con expects every GM to contact
the staff and inform us of a cancellation as soon as they know that they will miss or
cancel the event.  For issues prior to the first day of Cork RPG Con, please use, at a
minimum,  [email protected] to inform us of the issue.  Once Cork
RPG Con has commenced please report the issues to the personnel at convention
headquarters in person.
Any GM who, without proper notification, fails to show up for and run 2 or more of
their scheduled events may have their current badge revoked and be banned from
attending Cork RPG Con in any capacity for a period of no less than one year.  The
length of the ban will be determined solely by the Cork RPG Con management. We
are compassionate human beings and will consider extenuating circumstances
presented to us before enforcing a revocation or ban.
