Dungeon Rules

Our dungeon monitors are here to ensure a safe environment for play, to assist or to advise in the technical aspects of scene set-up, to react to any emergencies, and to assist people who feel uncomfortable with the attentions of others. The Dungeon Monitors will be wearing identifying orange vests. A Trustee will be a DM along with either another Trustee or a community member.

Our Dungeon Monitors are experienced, real-time Dominants/Tops or submissive/bottoms. Please do not hesitate to approach them if you have any questions or need assistance with any of the above problems. DMs, at all times, reserve the right to end a scene, or to ask someone to leave the dungeon or modify safety techniques.

General Rules

Scenes

* If you ask someone to play, make your intentions, limitations and desires clear. The same goes if you are asked to play. Negotiate before entering the play space.
* If you are into heavy verbal use during a scene or the submissive is prone to heavy verbalization, avoid places where loud verbalizations will disturb other scenes in progress.

* When a scene has ended please give the participants some quiet time and privacy for aftercare.
* Scenes involving suspension of any kind require the approval of the Dungeon Master on duty, and may be subject to DM supervision and/or the use of designated spotters. When possible use quick release connectors attached to wrist cuffs.
* If your scene or play involves heavy or rough play, please inform the DM before commencing.
* Please do not interrupt a scene. If you have questions for the participants, wait until the scene is finished. Keep your conversations quiet in the play areas. Concentration is paramount to the scening partners and is easily broken by loud distractions.
