I feel like there is a sideblock somewhere in one of the 5e books about a social contract of sorts.

Does anyone know the book and page number?


The Code of Conduct sidebar is on page 172 of XGtE.

There is a sidebar titled "Code of Conduct" at the start of Appendix A: Shared Campaigns (XGtE, p. 172). It specifically suggests agreeing on one for shared campaigns where the DM role is shared, but the same guidance could be applied to normal campaigns as well.

Other aspects like Table Talk and parts of the social contract can be found in the chapter 8 of the DMG: Running The Game (specifically DMG 235-236, 260).
