Policies & Guidelines

We are an organization dedicated to making Toronto the most active, vibrant and welcoming D&D community in the world.


Our Mission

Our goal is to make Toronto the most active, inclusive and developed D&D community in the world:

  • Active - We want to increase the number of people in the city who play on a regular basis. The more people we have at the table the more games will be played and the easier it will be for people to find games to play in.
  • Inclusive - We want all D&D games to be safe spaces for everybody who wants a seat at the table regardless of heritage, education, beliefs, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental health, physical or cognitive capabilities, or socio-economic status. In addition, we want our games to be accessible to all as well.
  • Developed - We want our community to have access to many different ways to play and learn about the game, and have the ability to play when, where and how they want.


Inclusivity

D&D T.O. strives to deliver inclusive service regardless of heritage, education, beliefs, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical or mental health, physical or cognitive capabilities, or socio-economic status. Any abuse or harassment based on these factors will not be tolerated. If an attendee is be being blatantly abusive or in any way discriminatory they will be asked to leave immediately and may be temporarily or permanently banned from the group. If you feel you are being abused or harassed please talk to an organizer or contact us here.


Respect Your Fellow Players

D&D only works well when you get along with the party you are playing with. Treat your fellow players and your DM with respect at all times. If you are having an issue with a players behaviour please talk to either your DM or an organizer so we can resolve the issue. As above, any abuse or harassment will not be tolerated and may result in removal from the group.


Respect The Venue

The venues that host our meetups should be treated with the same respect as our members. If there is a specific food and drink policy in effect the organizer will communicate it at the start of the session. If not stated it should be assumed that purchasing food or drink is encouraged but optional. Bringing outside food and drink in is prohibited. Refrain from any behaviour that negatively impacts the venue including being excessively messy or annoying other customers.


Supplies

Any supplies provided by D&D (pens, pencils, dice, sourcebooks) are owned by the group and should be returned at the end of the session in the same condition as when you borrowed them.


Safety

All games we play make use of the X-card system. An X-card is a tool to keep the content at the table safe for everyone. It is a card in the middle of the table with an X on it. Should someone feel uncomfortable at anytime, they can tap the X-card. The event host and other players will change the content, dial it back, or skip the scene.
