We have a New Player check-in at Ops run by our New Player Marshals. They will help you build a character, find a bed, and get you all of your item cards to start play. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, and our New Player Marshals will be happy to help.

If this is your first time at a Dystopia Rising event we invite you to attend our orientation. New player orientation is held outside Logistics at 9:15pm on Friday, directly following Opening Announcements. Even if you are an experienced gamer we suggest you attend. This is a great opportunity to get to know new people and organize.  We are a community based game and we want you to be a part of our community.  

We will provide starter item cards if this is your first event. This means you'll be able to get right into the action of surviving and fighting in the wastes. However, you will still need to bring your own contact-safe weapon prop

Every player can rewrite their entire character sheet once before their third event.  Take a chance and play something fun.  If you don't like it you can change it after the event.  

Players should come prepared for a weekend surviving in the post-apocalyptic future.  Bring plenty of food, a sleeping bag, and a contact safe weapon.  A pair of simple, black clothes for NPCing is also preferred.
