All interactions and relationships among the role-playing group, including emotional connections, logistic arrangements, and creative expectations. All role-playing is a subset of the Social Contract.

One crucial component is the phrase "Let's play this game," which may or may not be understood and employed in a given group. Failing to do so is a primary source of Murk.

Arguably some features of the actual Social Contract cannot be captured in verbal form. Therefore a Social Contract is not a written document or explicit agreement of any kind. If such things were employed among a group, they would be a component of the actual Social Contract, including the statement "Let's abide by these."
