All participants at LT events agree that LARP weapons may be used on them during active participation. Do not play the game if you do not agree to be struck with such weapons. Anyone found using any LARP weapon in a dangerous manner will be warned of their actions and any further incidents of this may lead to them being expelled from the event. Metal or other non-LARP weapons MUST NOT be brought to LT events. Reasonable camping knives are permitted but can only be used in your camp and MUST be kept in your tent. The LT reserve the right to confiscate/ban any weapon or any item of equipment it deems to be unsuitable or inappropriate.

    8. There can be no unapproved cooking fires or naked flames (a flame inside any container is considered a naked flame) inside any LT owned or publicly accessible tent (i.e. command or guild tents).

The LT reserve the right to ask you to comply with any directed instructions that may be given if you are seen to be using flames in an unsafe manner.
