Disclaimer for SHASN players:
Thank you for coming to SHASN. While this game is primarily for entertainment, it also serves as a reflection of ourselves and the society we live in. When we look within it, we might find ourselves, and often we might find people we love, and yet strongly disagree with.
Freedom is a fundamental right, but we must also respect each other's freedom. Our right to swing our arm ends where someone else's right not to be hit begins. Politics is the process of navigating this space, and the game aims to encourage constructive and respectful political discourse.
In today's polarized world, our tolerance for opposing viewpoints has diminished. This game was created with the belief that India's rich philosophical systems rooted in dialectics, debate, and synthesis can offer a solution to this problem. We strive to create a safe space where diverse ideologies and opinions can coexist and be discussed. However, we draw the line at abuse, hatred, and violence.
Many of the themes in the gameplay are designed for mature audiences above the age of 14, and parental guidance is advised. While the ideas and opinions expressed in the game are a work of fiction, they are often a distillation of public sentiments and opinions expressed across the political spectrum.
You may come across opinions that are challenging, shocking, or even abhorrent, but that is precisely the point of the game: to practice respectful disagreement. We have taken care to represent broad themes rather than specific individuals, groups, political parties, and ideologies. The intent is not to hurt the sentiments of any individual, community, sect, political affiliation, gender, caste, institution, class of person(s), or religion, but rather to invite conversation, and encourage critical thinking about the political systems that govern our world.
The game is designed to be playful and fun, but it is also an invitation to reflect upon our prejudices, engage in meaningful dialogue, and work towards building a more just and equitable society. The ideas and opinions expressed in the game are not intended to provide answers or preach a specific ideology, but to promote open-mindedness, empathy, and understanding.
In Conclusion: The ideas and opinions expressed in the various cards in the game are not intended to hurt the sentiments of any individual, community, sect, political affiliation, gender, caste, institution, class of person(s), or religion in any manner. The intent is also not to incite or create any public disorder or lawlessness but rather to invite conversation, challenge our prejudices, and encourage critical thinking about the political systems that govern our world. Some of these opinions may challenge or even shock your beliefs; however, keep in mind that this game is based on fiction and any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely coincidental and unintentional.
