Amended on
23 August, 2014


The Kingdom of the Emerald Hills is committed to maintaining an environment free from threats and acts of intimidation and violence. All reported incidents will be investigated and any report of physical violence at an event will result in the immediate ejection from the event. The Autocrats, Monarchy, PM, Champion, and Head of Security also have the right to call the local police if there is bodily injury or property damage.


Any act of intimidation, threat of violence, or act of violence committed against any person at an amtgard event is strictly prohibited.

Intimidation/Threat of Violence: A physical or verbal act which threatens bodily harm to another person or damage to their property which would cause a reasonable person to fear for their safety, the safety of their property, or the safety of others.

Act of Violence: Any physical act meant to cause injury to a person or their property regardless of the outcome of the action (i.e. throwing a punch and missing does not excuse the action).


Suspected violations of this standard shall be reported to the Monarch, Regent, Champion, PM, GMR, or a security member, who will then take immediate responsibility of investigating such act.

The Monarch, Regent, Champion, PM, GMR, security team member, or person in authority who receives a report of a suspected violation of this standard shall document the incident, investigate the incident and, in the case of any substantiated occurrence of physical violence, immediately notify the local police authorities.

As determined by the Monarch and Prime Minister or GMR of the Emerald Hills, any act of Intimidation or Threat of Violence, shall result in the person or persons involved being immediately ejected from the event site. Any person or persons found to be in violation of this standard may be subject to criminal prosecution as well as club discipline including possible banning from future Amtgard events and gatherings for a time period as determined by the Monarch of the Emerald Hills.
