No, we don't have any liability waivers or parental permission slips.
We prefer that if you're under 18, at least one of your parents comes
up and watches a few games so they know what you're getting into.
Otherwise, playing is just "at your own risk".

Generally our defense against being sued is that there isn't anyone
that 'runs' swordtag. We don't have any official leaders, or
organization, so there isn't really anyone to sue. We try to make the
risks as open as possible, and state as clearly as possible on the
website that you might get hurt, or killed, just like in any sport.
Only an idiot, or a child that doesn't know any better might think
this is completely safe. Anyway, most injuries are arguably self-
inflicted, since most of them involve tripping, falling, or twisting
an ankle, and usually not because someone else made it happen. If you
would like to talk to a lawyer and get a waiver drawn up for your
group, you're certainly free to do so. There may also be strings
attached to having a waiver, like needing liability insurance. The
lawyer would be able to inform you of any requirements you would need.
