Safety Policies
There are several safety policies are in place to ensure a safe and hazard free game environment. LARP can be a very active recreation and the Owners have taken steps to establish a set of policies to any risk associated with the game.

Safety Bullet
Fires
Fires may only be built in designated fire pits, fire places, or open air barbeques. These areas are clearly marked at each site attended by Legacies. Once a fire has been constructed it must be attended to at all times until it has died out. Fires may not be constructed if there is an active burn ban in the county the event is taking place in. Failure to comply with any of these restrictions will result in Suspension of Blanket (see "Disciplinary Actions") for all players involved.

The area within a ten foot radius of any open flame, whether it is a camp fire or a candle, is designated as a non-com zone and players must use the non-com rules outlined within the rulebook while within this area


Safety Bullet
Drugs and Alchohol
Illegal drugs and alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited at Legacies. Possession of illegal drugs or alcohol, or being intoxicated while at an event will result in the player being immediately banned from game. Additionally, players found to possess illegal drugs will be detained and the authorities will be notified.


Safety Bullet
Health Issues
Players are not required to report any existing health issues or the use of over the counter or prescription medication to a Safety Referee; the Owners of Legacies understand that a player's health can be a very personal matter and respect the player's privacy. However players are highly encouraged to report any potentially serious issues to Safety so that the Safety referee may respond more quickly should an emergency involving the health issue arise.


Safety Bullet
Non-Combatant (Noncom) Status
Per the Non-Combatant Rules in the Legacies Rulebook players with injuries or other health concerns may opt to avoid traditional combat at Legacies and play by the Noncom rules. Prior to being allowed Non-Combatant status, the player must provide at least some high level justification to the Owners explaining why they are at elevated risk from traditional combat rules, and must be granted permission to play as a Non-Combatant.


Safety Bullet
Out of Game Violence
Absolutely no real world violence is tolerated at Legacies. The use of foam and latex weapon props are the only accepted means of representing physical conflict at Legacies. Using any other objects, including using one's own body, during physical altercations is strictly prohibited. Any player expressing real life physical, and in some cases verbal, violence will be immediately removed from the site and may be banned from Legacies depending on the severity


Safety Bullet
Weapon Safety
All weapon props belonging to a player must be brought to the event sign in table to be inspected by Logistics or Safety referees every event. Missile weapons and weapons of exotic design may only be inspected by the Head of Safety. If a weapon is found to be unsafe it must either be locked in the player's car, or if a car is not availabile or the weather is hot or cold enough to damage weapons sitting in cars further, it must be wrapped in orange surveyors tape (available at the check in table) and stored under a bunk. Any weapon prop that becomes damaged during an event must immediately be retired from use and put under a bunk to prevent future use.


Safety Bullet
Weapon Permissions
Combat at Legacies is represented through full contact foam and latex weapons. With the full contact nature of combat comes a responsibility to take care during combat. Any player may request another player swing lighter (or request that a referee ask a player to swing lighter) and those wishes must be respected. Players who fail to respect those wishes, or continually fight in a manner deemed unsafe by either a Safety Referee or an owner may have their weapon permissions temporarily or permanently revoked, effectively baring the player from weapon combat at Legacies.
