Event Policies
Legacies maintains policies to facilitate the smooth execution of each event and uphold a good reputation with the management of each site used for events.

Event Bullet
Children at Game
The minimum age requirement for Legacies is sixteen years of age. People under the age of sixteen may not attend event even with supervision. This is to minimize liability due to the physical nature of combat at Legacies and because of the occasionally mature subject matter that can be discussed at game. Players between the ages of sixteen and eighteen must explicitly receive permission to attend event from the Owners prior to attending event. They must also have their parents sign a waiver prior to each game to ensure that their parents are aware and are accepting of the player's participation at game. Parents of players are encouraged to contact the Owners if they have any questions or concerns about the nature of Legacies.


Event Bullet
Arrival Time
The earliest arrival time permitted for an event is listed on the events site page for each event site that Legacies is held at. Addtionally the events page may contain a note about the event time for that specific event, should it deviate from the normal standard for the event site. If no time is listed the player should assume the arrival time is 3 PM. No players are allowed on site, including the parking lot, prior to that time. Additionally, even if that time has been reached players are not to leave the parking lot until one of the Owners is on site. Players that do not abide the arrival time or do not wait for an owner to be onsite will not receive blanket for that event (See "Suspension of Blanket" under "Disciplinary Actions").


Event Bullet
Start of Game
Game play commences at 8:00 PM Friday night of event. After 8:00 PM players should either be playing their character or wearing an orange headband to designate that they are not yet in character. Players that arrive after 8:00 PM are asked to minimize interference with players actively playing characters as they transport their possessions to their sleeping area, set up any decorations, get into their character's garb, and check in with Logistics at the sign in table for event.


Event Bullet
End of Game
The end time for game varies based off of the location of the event and any restrictions put in place by the management of the event location. The end time will be posted in the at the sign in table Friday nights during check-in and may also be announced on the Legacies Forums in advance of event. Once the end of game has been reached players have three hours to clean up their sleeping area and any shared spaced attached to the sleeping area, such as bathrooms, perform their clean up job, check out with Logistics, and attend closing ceremonies. If three hours is not sufficient for certain players they must cease playing earlier in order to complete all of the given tasks in time.


Event Bullet
Cleanup
Each player is responsible for cleaning up their sleeping area and associated shared space, such as bathrooms. They will also be assigned a cleanup job when they check in with Logistics Friday night. This cleanup job typically a task to clean up after the playership as a whole. If Logistics forgets to give a player a cleanup job it is that player's job to find the Head of Logistics and get one assigned. Players must clean up their own area and perform their cleanup job prior to checking out with Logistics at the end of event. Players leaving early should clean their area prior to departure and request a cleanup job from Logistics that they can perform prior to event ending. Failure to sufficiently clean up the sleeping area, attached shared area, or perform the cleanup job will result in a suspension of blanket for the event (See "Disciplinary Actions"). Repeated failure to cleanup appropriately may result in more severe disciplinary action. It is the responsibility of each player to clean up after themselves and maintain the location the game is held at.


Event Bullet
Closing Ceremonies
At the end of event, after the site has been fully cleaned and all players have checked out with Logistics, the playership gathers to go over any issues that came up during event. The Owners and Referee committees will make any announcements they feel are necessary. The location of Afters will also be announced.


Event Bullet
Afters
Following the end of an event, many players attend an informal meal at a specified area restaurant. This is not officially part of a Legacies event; rather it is simply an activity many of the players choose to participate in to unwind from the weekend's activities and have one last opportunity to socialize with their fellow players prior to the next event. Often times Player Awards, recognition for certain activities at event, will be held at Afters. The restaurant is typically announced at Closing Ceremonies.


Event Bullet
Smoking at Event
Smoking is only allowed in designated areas at Legacies, as specified in the event flyer available at Logistics during sign in. All cigarette butts must be disposed of in the proper receptacle; any player seen simply tossing butts on the ground will no longer be allowed to smoke at Legacies and will receive a suspension of blanket (see "Disciplinary Actions" later in this chapter for more information) as will players smoking outside the designated area. Smoking in buildings will result in automatic suspension from Legacies. The Washington State law banning smoking within 25 feet of a building entrance must also be respected.

Players that give cigarettes to players under the age of eighteen will be immediately banned from game. Additionally players pressuring other players to begin smoking will not be tolerated.
