We are the Texas chapter of the networked Dystopia Rising game series. Dystopia Rising is a full immersion live-action 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.
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 national government, no army, no educational system. Literacy is rare and lawlessness abounds.
Dystopia Rising is not a game 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 you 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 chapter is the post-apocalytpic wild west. Duels are legally binding, bribery is institutionalized, and a person's only as good as their word or their aim.
