Phoenix RPGs seeks to provide a welcoming, fun, and safe convention and community. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Discriminatory language and imagery (including sexual) is not appropriate for any venue, including any game sessions and any community resources such as the Phoenix RPGs social media pages, Discord server or any other foreseeable community locations. Phoenix RPGs staff have both the power and the duty to investigate all reported incidents of harassment and to remove confirmed harassers from future events both physical and virtual.
Harassment is understood as any behavior that threatens another person or group or produces an unsafe or un-inclusive environment. It includes offensive verbal comments or non-verbal expressions related to gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religious beliefs, sexual or discriminatory images in public spaces (including online), deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. The behavior above is not limited to explicit statements, but also meant to include comments made that could be deemed as in violation of the policy. Phoenix RPGs staff is the ultimate adjudicator in any disputes arising from behavior at events, Discord server and social media.
Any incident that requires intervention by staff will be treated with confidentiality and regardless of if the report is anonymous or not only relevant details will be shared as need with those required to resolve the conflict.
