Camp Rules Summer 2020 (Updated 03/07/2020)

These rules apply to ALL RSC events including pre-camp events at the HQ, anyone that repeatedly ignores or breaks these rules will not be allowed to participate in future RSC events.

If at any time you have a complaint you may bring it to Landon Edenbaum or another member of staff.

About RSC:

We are a summer camp focused on a roleplay story rather than your traditional summer camps where campers spend their days safe and sound making popsicle picture frames.

You will find yourself lost with your friends on a mysterious land which is inhabited by creatures and enemies wanting to eat you, kill you and hurt you. Who knows what we will find here? It’s a world only limited by our imagination; anything can happen.

We do not want to hear “OMG but that wouldn’t happen in real life!!” This is Second Life, our imagination and an adventure in a fairytale reality is what we make it together.

We roleplay surviving. this may include scavenging for food and supplies to make a shelter. You will need to find and defend your shelter from unknown threats. This is a survival camp working together is key. Anything goes so long as it’s PG.

We at Richmond Survival Camp are all about roleplay but we also keep in mind that this being SL, we are laid back and each person role-plays to their own level, we allow all levels or roleplay.

During camp, there shall be no judging others by the way they roleplay. Let people live their best life and have fun.

If at any time you do not like something we do, then you simply do not have to take part in that roleplay.

Anyone found to cause drama or try to ruin the fun will simply be removed and banned from future camps.

The biggest rule this and every year that will surely get you sent away is being the roleplay police. We are very sorry, but we need to make this very clear from the start. We have over 300+ kids and everyone role-plays differently. Some are very skillful at para roleplay while others are more casual role-players.

If at any time you feel the urge to judge anyone by how they are role-playing or you feel you need to complain because someone didn’t reply to your emotes in a very heavy wall of chat please don’t. This camp is about having fun and enjoying a week away from the stress we may face daily.
If at any time someone role-plays something you don’t like then simply IM them and say OOC you do not wish to continue that roleplay and find something else to do, we have worked very hard to provide a variety of activities for you to do while at RSC.

While you are logged in Second life you are always required to be at the camp. Every year we work very hard to raise funds to cover regions, décor and prizes and space is limited. There are other people who really want to be at camp but can’t. We will not accept constant IMs from people needing to leave camp, pay your tier and feed your pets before JUNE 20, 2020.
Other Rules:

1. Watch your language. While some of us don’t get offended by certain words please respect that there might be some around you who don’t want to hear your potty mouth. Have some common courtesy and manners.

2. No Voice. Campers (kids) will NOT be allowed to be on voice at any time. This rule has been in place since our very first camp in 2014. I understand some kids like talking in voice using voice changers, but this is the rule that’s been set in place and will not be changed.

3. Weapons. Only themed weapons a kid would use will be allowed. For example, daggers, small swords, bow, and arrows, etc. Please note that only weapons provided by RSC will damage enemies found while at camp.

4. OOC & IC:
· Counselor Events are considered OOC unless otherwise stated in the notice.

· We will have RP events which will be IC, during these events do your best to follow along and participate and listen to the staff.

5. No Whining or Drama. It simply will not be tolerated. Drama makers will be sent to the Dark Zone never to be seen again. Many people dedicated countless hours to script, mesh, decorate and put this camp together. Please remember that when you open the camp chat to complain and whine about small things.

6. Dancers: While dancers are very fun, there is a time and place for them. Dancers will not be allowed during events or event areas unless it is part of the event. Please keep dancers for OOC/hangout areas. If an adult asks you to turn off a dancer, don’t whine just listen.

7. Tokens – Be fair. No fighting over them. Tokens can be tracked and anyone caught cheating will have tokens removed. You are not allowed to sell, barter with or exchange tokens for other items with other campers, tokens are given FREE and anyone found doing this will be automatically sent home and excluded from all RSC events.

8. Diapers and other talking objects- While we are very supportive of our family community and strive to allow for an environment where you feel free to express yourself and roleplay how you want. Please understand that no one wants to hear your diaper tell the world that you have pooped yourself every two minutes. If you use a diaper, illness hud, tummy talker, etc the local chat feature must be turned off. You will be asked to turn it off only once if you have to be told a second time you will be sent to Mr. Geo. Mr. Geo has gotten old and bitter and he might simply ask you to leave camp.

9. No candy allowed. This is the only rule you are allowed to break at RSC.

RSC will always remain free and we hope to be giving you all an experience you will never forget. We hope you will enjoy the camp and we are thankful that you are joining us. Good luck!
