Your First EVENT
Dystopia Rising: Washington wants preparing for your first event to be as easy as possible. We created the steps below to simplify the process. If you have any questions please contact us. We look forward to meeting you!
STEP 2: GRAB A TICKET
Pre-registering before the event allows you to skip the registration line when you arrive. New players attending their first Dystopia Rising event get a discounted rate of $20 for the full weekend! Our events occur monthly, and the window for pre-registration generally closes the Sunday before game. No worries if you miss pre-registering, we’ll happily register you when you arrive on site.
Step 3: Download the survivor’s Guide
This free pdf contains our rules, community standards, general world information, and everything you need for character creation. There’s a lot of information and we don’t expect you to retain it all, but it’s a vital resource to have.
Step 4: Create a character
Decide on the a character concept as complex or simple as you desire. What is your character’s personality? What do they want most? How do they react to danger? What strain are they? Get the general concept down, and we’ll help you with the specifics later.
Step 5: Create a Costume
As a community, we want to create an immersive environment. This means costuming! But no worries, the costuming can be as simple some old clothes you own. If you wish for your character to start with armor, contact safe weapon props, nerf guns, or other ranged weapons, follow these links for our safety guidelines.
