Among Us

Dear Fellow Adventurers,

I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits. As we embark on exciting quests and delve into the realms of imagination through myriad Role Playing Games, it is important to exercise caution when arranging meetups with individuals we have yet to build a trusting relationship with.

While the gaming community is known for its inclusivity and camaraderie, it is vital to remember that safety should always be a top priority. I strongly recommend taking the following precautionary measures before joining sessions in private homes, or inviting strangers into your private homes, for gaming sessions.

  1. Initiate the First Meeting in Public Spaces: To establish a sense of familiarity and mutual trust, it is advisable to organize the initial gaming session in public places such as local game stores, libraries, or community centers. These locations provide a neutral and safer environment for everyone involved.

  2. Get to Know Each Other: During this first meeting, take the opportunity to get acquainted with your fellow adventurers. Engage in conversations about interests, backgrounds, and shared hobbies beyond gaming. This initial interaction will help build rapport and give you a better sense of who you'll be inviting into your personal space.

  3. Gauge Compatibility: Role Playing games are collaborative games that thrive on teamwork and cooperation. Before progressing to private sessions, observe how well the group dynamics work during the initial meetup. Assess whether everyone shares similar gaming preferences, communication styles, and overall compatibility to ensure a smooth and enjoyable gaming experience.

  4. Trust Your Instincts: Intuition plays a significant role in personal safety. If you have any reservations about an individual or group, trust your instincts and proceed with caution. It is better to prioritize your well-being and seek alternative gaming opportunities than to compromise your safety.

Remember, while the vast majority of gaming enthusiasts are genuine and passionate individuals, it is important to remain vigilant and take proactive steps to protect ourselves and our fellow players. By implementing these precautions and cultivating a community that prioritizes safety, we can continue to foster an environment of inclusivity and fun for all.

Stay safe, adventurers, and embark on your quests with both excitement and caution.
