Toilets:

  1. Going to the toilet is an out of game activity. Please don't attack people who are on the latrine call, don't stalk in the toilets or near the toilets - be civil about it.
  2. Same goes for sanitary areas near player camps.

Food, drink and everything else

  3. If the consumed amount of alcohol will start interfering with the event noticeably, the persons involved will be removed from the game area.
  4. It is forbidden to take part in fighting under the influence of alcohol. There are no exceptions and no warnings, the offender will be removed from the game.

  6. If you want to smoke, please do it in a fashion so it doesn't disturb other players - put out your cigarette or pipe on the first complaint by others.
