Tabletop Community

Guiding Rules & Principles

01
Have fun while playing! We do not require exclusivity, nor do we ask for a certain level of involvement. Each member is free to play his favorite game(s) with whom, when and how he/she likes.
02
We are ultimately a community, and the interaction and communication between its members we consider to be essential. Whether it is online (Facebook groups & Discord) or in-store, we do not ask for anything beyond common sense and mutual respect.
03
The official position of the community in relation to any other person is represented only by the Council Members, TGH Staff and any other persons named explicitly for that purpose. Any statements made by other members of the community are by no means an official position. Also, any actions or statements made under the pretext of representing community interests, both within and outside the community, are prohibited for all other members except those listed above. Any violation will result in exclusion from the community.
04
The following will not be tolerated: personal attacks, threatening, abusive, inappropriate or offensive behavior. A civilized behavior requires debating the ideas expressed and not the people who expressed them, and all the members of the community must show maturity in their behavior (this is not referring to age, but to attitude).
05
Hostile treatment or inappropriate remarks addressed to Council Members or Game Mentors when they merely ensure that the rules and purpose of the community are respected will be sanctioned accordingly.
06
Any personal conflicts should be avoided – only civilized and objective discussions between the members of the community are accepted; in case of any disagreement, you should first move away from a public discussion and try to address this in a private (one-to-one, ideally face to face) chat, attempting to find a win-win resolution or a compromise; if that is not possible, the people involved in any “heated” discussions will request to have the conflict mediated by Council Members, Game Mentors or TGH Staff, in an attempt to find a common ground or a resolution.
07
All community members are asked to bring any outstanding issues that they see are affecting the community to the immediate attention of Game Mentors or Guild Council members. This will help address these issues in a much more efficient way, without any unnecessary dramas.
08
The violation of the basic principles that constitute the foundation of this community might cause the Council Members to take one or more of the following measures:
– issue a warning;
– start a probationary period for the members involved;
– direct exclusion.

Basically, the rules above say:

Be kind, considerate and respectful to your fellow community members. Use common sense. That’s probably the essential thing here – you know what they say: the funny thing about common sense is that it’s not that common. Let’s try and make sure that’s not the case here.
If you have an issue with someone else in the community, take it in private and discuss/address it. If you can’t, ask someone (Council Member, Game Mentor, TGH staff) to mediate the conflict.
v
If there’s something not quite right, make sure the people who can actually do something about it know about it as soon as possible. It’s the only way it can potentially get fixed.
Last, but not least, have fun. This is a thing that stems from a hobby, and it’s something that all of us do in our spare time. Let’s not let personal dramas and unwanted behavior spoil that.

Tabletop Community

Community Roles

TGH Staff

Anyone in this role total and direct access to all the logistics/administrative elements pertaining to The Guild Hall (access to the space, providing terrain storage for members, handling miniature displays, handling reservations, helping out with event logistics, etc.). Beyond that, they have the same rights and obligations as the rest of the Council Members.

Council Members

A gathering of equals who take decisions by voting on any issues affecting the entire community. They are selected from the most experienced members, by a vote among the already existing Council Members, which must be unanimous. They also pick/vote any new Game Mentors. Some of the requirements to become a Council Member are to show a high level of maturity and honesty, a patient and responsible attitude towards the other members, and well-defined moral principles.

Game Coordinator

In charge of scheduling and planning encounters, campaigns and matches for any specific game system.

Game Mentors

Some of the most active and experienced members of the community, who have the ability and are willing to act as “mentors” for new recruits, both in terms of internal organization and community values, as well as specific game mechanics. They also handle any specific game event planning and notifications (Facebook events & group discussions, Discord). We will always aim to have at least one standing Game Mentor for each of the systems actively being played at The Guild Hall (e.g. Warhammer 40K, LOTR, Kill Team, Underworlds, Age of Sigmar, Warcry, Aristeia, Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, etc.).

Community Members

Everyone who is part of the tabletop community at TGH. 🙂
