Roleplaying Social Contract

A few things have emerged over time. I’m trying to collect these.

I’m constantly tinkering with a set of house rules called Halberds and Helmets.


If you need to quit, give notice. If you decide to quit the night before, don’t be a selfish d-bag. Suck it up and play one more session, then let everyone know after.

I’m not so sure… If somebody wants to leave – did not want to come! – how much entertainment are they going to provide at the table? You might be better off playing without such a person, or you might be better off not playing at all. Sure, that’s not cool. But given that this person wants to quit, it might still be the best choice.

This is one of the best model social contracts I’ve ever read.
