@stolas this is so eloquently designed I love it. I wish I could write stuff like this.

@shadow8t4 @stolas this feels like an excellent application of the game design and prose writing skillsets that the qud team already relies on so effectively

Caves of Qud is a game about the future and its possibilities. We all gather under the shade of this and seek to draw from the common wellspring we find here. We're a
thriving, vibrant group with great potential if we work alongside each other and help one another in harmony.

In the interest of encouraging harmony, we stress the safety and security of those who gather here. Conflicts will arise over time, and we determine collectively how we
address them, how they shape and temper our community.

We want to foster strong community bonds, and to do so we must discourage behaviors that threaten the healthy functioning of this space and erode the well-being of
those within it. Accordingly, we have no tolerance for hate speech or for symbols associated with hate groups. These include ‘kek’, swastikas, Pepe the Frog, 4chan-isms,
and all other symbols and memes that promote bigotry, fascism, and apologia thereof. Last but not least, respect our users’ existence, pronouns, identity, and lived
experience.

A note on the Putus Templar: of the various antagonistic factions that populate Qud, the Templar are particularly relevant in the present day. Their goals are eugenics and
genocide, and their means are extermination and subjugation. We do not wish to quell discussion or speculation on them, but be conscious that discussion can easily veer
into the code of conduct breaches described above. Facetious support of the Templar's fascist and genocidal behavior is prohibited. At best, it reads as callousness to the
reality of these things. At worst, it reads as actual support. Be sensitive when your audience includes many of those who have suffered from the historical or present
consequences of genocide or eugenics. Jokes have consequences.

Likewise, do not ask whether there will be a quest to join the Templar. There won't, and the question will not reflect well on you.

Breaches in the code of conduct can be met with kicks or bans at the discretion of our moderation team. If a user is making you uncomfortable and you don't feel
comfortable with voicing this directly or openly, please come to a moderator.

If any of these things aren't clear to you, or you have other questions, feel free to approach the mods @​lvy over congealed love ¥ @​special guest eva problems @​Caelyn
@​and friend to fungi @​h girl @​scremily elizadeath @​ for community/discord-oriented concerns, or you can contact the developers @​ptychomancer @​unormal for
modding and technical help.

Be kind to each other. Be patient with one another. Live and drink.

We do not tolerate misogynist, racist, homophobic, or transphobic content or behavior on this server. Much like "jokes" about genocide or eugenics erode the safety and
wellbeing of the people gathered here, so do "jokes" about sexual assault or other forms of hegemonic violence. If you feel you must discuss a potentially triggering topic,
it's best to put it in IIspoiler tagsII with a warning.
