Alliance allows combat with safely padded prop weapons. Combat is strictly not allowed without appropriate weapons that have been safety checked; a monster with “claws” does not allow the player to reach over and physically claw at the target with their bare hands. Safety is the main concern here; we are using our weapons to represent battles, not to actually cause damage.
Every weapon must be inspected and approved by a duly appointed Marshal before every event. It is your responsibility to make sure your weapon has been approved before you start playing. If anyone is hurt from your unsafe weapon and you did not get it checked and approved beforehand, you will be held responsible.
