Our Kaupapa

This kaupapa is the foundation of the KiwiRPG network. Everyone who has connected with KiwiRPG since its recent founding, including all those who have joined the galleries on this website, is invited to embrace and uphold this kaupapa as we work on coming together effectively as a community. 

Kiwi RPG values Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and its guiding principles of partnership, participation and protection, especially with any content or discussion that involves tangata whenua Māori.

Kiwi RPG stands against hate & prejudice in all forms.

Kiwi RPG respects and supports the dignity of all, regardless of belief, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, ableness,  or any other points of difference within our shared humanity.

Kiwi RPG seeks to support and encourage creators from marginalized groups in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Kiwi RPG opposes harassment and strives for considerate non- toxic discourse.

Kiwi RPG values creators and their work. We support fair treatment and equitable pay for all  creators.

Kiwi RPG is not one person, nor is it owned by any one person.

Kiwi RPG members come together in this kaupapa for the betterment of the TTRPG community in Aotearoa and across the globe.
