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 community members. 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, to ask someone to leave the dungeon, or modify safety techniques.

General Rules

All attendees must sign a waiver annually (calendar year).
DMs have the final word on everything, including the right to stop any scene.

Any form of recording (photo, video, audio, etc.) is not permitted at any MWA event. If you are caught violating this rule, you will be banned from all MWA events forever.

Please use common sense and courtesy in conducting yourself in all public areas of the location.

  • 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.
  • Consider other players in the public play space around you. If you or your partner yell, scream, cry out loudly, please consider the use of a gag.
  • When a scene has ended please give the participants some quiet time and privacy for aftercare.
  • If the scene you are planning deviates from our rules, please contact a trustee to discuss logistics.
  • 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.
  • If you are uncomfortable with a scene, you should simply step away. Please do not infringe on the rights of others. If you feel that a scene is unsafe, inform a DM.
