There are three levels of approval in regards to strains. These strains will be approved or denied based on what DR NJ finds as appropriate in regards to story and genre.  In addition, more complex strains are restricted as to ensure that the presentation of individual strains matches what is appropriate for genre materials.  As further strains become available to Dystopia Rising Larp as a whole, those strains will be added to this four stage approval list. 

Please note that anyone at the age of 18 or over cannot play a character beneath the age of 18. 

Players under the age of 18 are barred from any form of intimate or romantic roleplay.

Not Approved for Play at DR: NJ

While these strains will be able to travel into our game from other games, they will not be approved to local players for play.  This is primarily due to the style, focus, and themes of the DR NJ game.  Strains that are traditionally located in different areas, are restricted in their travels, or are not appropriate for the local culture will not be allowed.

Solestros

Unborn of Teixiptla

 

Assistance points may be earned by assisting the game with set up, going above and beyond normal player standards, assisting with additional NPC shifts, or by helping with game requested donations (see forums for donation list) or approved charities.
