1. Crucible staff and all Dungeon Monitors must be obeyed. If someone who is unaware of scene etiquette or who is violating the rules, please notify a Crucible staff member.
2. Any play or scene that could be considered high risk must be approved by a Crucible staff member prior to starting the scene. Any high risk scene that does not receive prior approval is subject to be stopped.
3) Normal BDSM scene etiquette is required. Do not interfere with a scene. Do not touch anyone or anyone's gear without permission. When in doubt, ask.
4) The house safeword is RED for stop, and YELLOW for caution.

Photography & Recording Device Policy
A lot has changed, and not much as changed.
With the proliferation of electronic devices that can take and transmit digital photos, we have to be more aware and diligent in our efforts to ensure your privacy.
The Crucible's photography policy will not change.
It remains: "No unauthorized photography"
Our enforcement of it will change:
Cell phones are disallowed in any other part of the club except the downstairs lobby and we ask you to keep any device that can be used to record a digital picture tucked away out of site. Use of cell phones will be kept to the outside of the building (better signal anyway). For those of you who are required to have your phone on you, you will be asked to set the things to vibrate only, and move to the exterior of the building to answer your calls.
Anyone caught taking unauthorized pictures will have their "device" confiscated, and will be escorted from the building. Said "device" will then be subjected to the Crucible's "Stress Test", a highly complicated procedure involving brute force, and a 10 lb sledgehammer. Remains will be returned.
Persons found to have transmitted or used an unauthorized image taken at the Crucible will have their membership cancelled, and be prosecuted to fullest extent of the law.
We basically trust you to be responsible, but we keep the "Stress Test"* in the closet to ensure your compliance. Pictures are taken in the Crucible all the time BY BY THE MANAGER ON DUTY. One has but to ask, we will make sure ONLY willing subjects are in the shots, and that no unaware subjects are in the background. At that time, THE MANAGER ON DUTY will be happy to take your picture WITH YOUR DEVICE ONLY. Permission is given when the time and circumstances warrant. THIS IS NOT PERMISSION TO SNAP AWAY ON YOUR OWN.
