Dystopia Rising: Lone Star is the Texas chapter of the networked Dystopia Rising game series. Dystopia Rising is a fully immersive role-playing game set in a post-apocalyptic, zombie infested world. From Friday to Sunday you will live as a Survivor. You will eat, sleep, and fight in character. You will have to gather resources to survive, fend off hordes of the undead, stop raiders from attacking you in the night, and protect what little you have from thieves and killers who will hurt you to help their own chances of survival.
The world of Dystopia Rising is a dark one. Our setting is approximately four generations after the fall of man. The dead rose, the nuclear option was used, and what remains is a new dark age. There is no state government, no army, no educational system. Literacy is rare and lawlessness abounds.
There are, however, some glimmers of light in the darkness. On occasion a person manages to hold onto their moral compass, and uses it to navigate in this hopeless world. You may find a new purpose or establish a role in someone else’s life, and because of that you find it hard to simply go it alone.
Dystopia Rising is a game that is not centered on the undead. It is a game that is centered on humanity, and what we become when confronted with the demands of survival. Will you give up your own food for another soul? Will you answer their pleas for help in the middle of the dark and lonely night? Where do you draw the line and how adamantly will stand by it?
Our game takes place in the fictional town of Bravo, a settlement with a history of rebellion, violence, and civil warfare. Bravo is an industrial settlement. Located on a major trade route between New Austin and Star City, the town's advanced manufacturing capabilities and its unique ability to brew Texas Tea is highly coveted.
The theme for our game is the post-apocalytpic wild west. Duels are legally binding, bribery is institutionalized, and a man's only as good as his word or his aim.
