Dystopia Rising: Oregon wants your first event to be a great one! Follow the steps below to get started in the apocalypse! If you have any questions please contact us. We look forward to seeing you in the wastes!
Step Two: Grab a Ticket!
Registering before the event allows you to skip the line when you arrive to check in. New players attending their first event get a discounted rate of $20 for the full weekend experience! Our events occur monthly, and the window for pre-registration generally closes the Monday before game. No worries if you miss registration, we’ll happily register and check you in when you arrive on site.

Find an event that works for you!
Step Four: Create your Character
Decide on the a character concept as complex or simple as you want. Who is your character? What do they want most in the world? How do they react to danger? What strain are they? Once you’ve got a general concept down we’ll help you with the specifics later.
Step Three: Download The Guide
This free pdf contains our rules, community guidelines, general world information, and everything you need to create your apocalypse persona. There’s a ton of information included, AND our community is currently building a new version of our ruleset called 3.0. You aren’t expected to memorize every rule and call, but the survivor’s guide is invaluable as a reference.
Step Five: Get Kitted Out
As a community, we want to create an immersive environment. This means costuming and props! But no pressure, the costuming can be as simple some old clothes you own or pick up from a thrift shop. 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.
