All ROPECRAFT attendees must be at least 18 years of age.
A current, valid picture ID must be presented at registration.
Do not discuss activities with non-participants without the prior consent of all involved. The space is governed by the “Responsible Adult Photography Policy”, which treats personal cel-phone photography the same as any other kink, and involving someone in a picture without their consent will be grounds for expulsion from the event. All activities at ROPECRAFT are to be considered confidential.
Official Ropecraft Special Event Photographers are identifiable by glowing badges that say “Staff”. They will only take photos of staff, performers, and attendees who have opted in to work with them to document and share our special events. All other photography is governed by the Responsible Adult Photo Policy (RAPP)
Attendees must display their own badge at all times
while in the ROPECRAFT event space. Failure to have the badge will result in expulsion from the space. Ropecraft staff members retain the right to remove any attendee at any time due to behavior deleterious to the event or its attendees without refund.
EVENT SPACE GUIDELINES:
ROPECRAFT attendees must be in street-legal and public-polite clothing at all times while outside of secured Ropecraft classroom and playspace areas. This means more than just nipples and genitals covered and includes ANY and ALL public areas of the hotel including the elevators, stairwells, hallways and pool area. Any attire (or none) is acceptable in closed door classroom spaces.
This is not a total hotel takeover. We will be sharing the hotel with various independent guests – not a ton but there could be kids or overly concerned adults in the lobby, pool, gym etc. or for that matter folks who are sincerely interested. Ticketing is closed and there are no walk-ups allowed, so please do not share details of our event of any kind with folks who are not attending so they are not a. disappointed they can’t come or b. causing issues for us or the hotel.
For our event as a principle and policy, NO kind of hotel occupancy will EVER mean being rude or inappropriate in the hallways or at the front desk or in front of hotel staff. They cannot reasonably consent to that and it is up to all of us to be respectful guests.
All activities that are illegal within this jurisdiction are likewise prohibited in any and all Ropecraft spaces. Failure to abide by the laws may result in expulsion from the event and may need to involve notification of law enforcement in order to ensure the safety of attendees.
CONSENT & HARASSMENT POLICY:
ROPECRAFT is designed to promote a safe and fun experience for all attendees. What follows is a summary of the ROPECRAFT Guiding Principles.
All activity should be consensual, both in and out of play, in both actions and language. Harassment of other attendees of any kind will absolutely not be tolerated. All attendees and staff are expected to treat others with respect and consideration including but not limited to the following:
Exceptionally dangerous and/or messy activities are prohibited from Ropecraft event spaces. This includes watersports, scat play, fire play (including candle-based wax play), breath play approaching or to the point of unconsciousness, and any play that might splatter blood or other bodily fluids on other attendees no matter how slim that chance. The determination of what constitutes “exceptionally dangerous or messy” is at the DM’s discretion. When in doubt, ask first.
Alcoholic beverages, glass containers, or recreational drugs are prohibited inside all Ropecraft event spaces when not being actively served by hotel staff and consumed responsibly at an official event function. The hotel has a bar and there are hotel rooms available should you wish to drink socially and responsibly. Smoking and vaping are prohibited inside the hotel entirely. We do not want to run a “dry” event, but we are running a responsible one.
If your blood alcohol level or other substance use might affect the safety of a scene, the comfort of an attendee, or the safety of the group, we will need you to remove yourself from the area.
All efforts must be made to avoid damage to the Hotel premises. Always use a barrier between yourself and the hotel, whether this is your clothing or a sheet or mat if you are not clothed. It is the responsibility of the individual attendee to provide and use drop cloths for any play involving blood, saline inflations, or other forms of play that may be messy.
Play scenes are restricted to the classrooms, and playspaces. Refrain from any kind of non-vanilla play including pinching, fondling, spanking, rough body play, humiliation play, fornophilia, or similar activities while in non-play spaces. Remember that Ropecraft attendees are representative of the kink community. Please be polite and discreet.
Notify a DM (Dungeon Monitor) before any edge play. Examples of edge play include consensual non-consent, blood and needle play, and other scenes where special precautions must be observed for safety reasons. DM’s are responsible for monitoring all play spaces to ensure equipment and attendee safety, and compliance with the Ropecraft rules.
In the event of an emergency, the DM’s or other Event Staff will direct you to the nearest safe exit, or provide additional instructions. Immediately end all scenes, and prepare to leave the building if necessary. Medical staff and the Peer Support staff will be available to assist as needed.
