We missed you last week. The last handful of months has had a lot going on and while this blog is still new, there was just more than we could juggle last week. But, we’re back and a day early. So we hope you missed us the same.

Today, in our now standard format of Logistics Info part and then Story info part, we have some cool shit for you to do with your own hands. Check it out.

The New Database; or How I Rebuilt My Sweet-Ass Characters!

On Saturday, the new Database rolled out and everyone was sent an email to the address they have on their account. Once you reset your password and log-in, you can rebuild your character in the 3.0 system!

If someone you know did not receive their password reset, please have them email Contact@DystopiaRisingNJ.com to confirm player number and email. If you use AOL or Yahoo, just use the links below. Both have a really hard time with our emails. Also, might be worth adding a different email to the database, in case we ever need to send you something again.

Your characters will have all available build up to 8/15/19 and will not lock into place until you check into your first 3.0 event. On 9/14, any outstanding build will be updated into the builder for you to apply to your character.

You will be allowed one full rewrite per character within the first three events played. You’re also not obligated to finalize any character you’re not ready to play.

Since we’ve been asked, there are no restrictions in NJ on how many Achievements a character can start with (within the confines of their build and such, of course). So have at!

Secret Societies and You!

One of the aspects about 3.0 we are very excited for at DR:NJ is working closer with the notion of Societies and Secret Societies. While there will be multiple Societies players can interact with and even join coming from the minds of our talented team, we know that players are also stoked to create their own.

A Society is not just a collection of Leading Characters (LC's) or friends who want to have ties to each others' characters, but instead a deeply held pact between LC's. What this means is to create a Society, players will need to submit some basic information but are encouraged to include more in order to flesh out the identity of the Society.

Each Society needs at least ten Leading Characters to create a Society.

The Society must have a structure of command or outline of how decisions are made.

The Society must have bylaws, rules, codes of conducts, ways for promotion of ranks etc that should be followed.

The Society should have some semblance of response for when those rules are broken.

The Society must have a clear way that LC's can leave or be removed (yes, this can mean death! Just be sure everyone involved talks first!)

The Society must have a reason to exist. This is where you can let your creativity shine. Examples can be a mercenary unit who patrol the roads of The Pictin Alliance, a secret group of assassins who work together for the betterment of humanity, a collective of knowledgeable individuals who believe a second fall might come and they strive to stop it, etc.

If you would also like to include a history for the Society with the implication that the Society has been revitalized, formed a new or has Casted Characters who have been within the Society before, we would like to encourage you to work with our team to develop this.

DR:NJ wants to explore the nature of these Societies with the advent of 3.0 and we look forward to working with players to create an immersive world where the Societies can have lasting impact on Hayven.


That’s it for today folx. If there are specific topics you’d like us to talk about, tell us. We come up with these as things make themselves apparent to us. But maybe there’s something you really want to know about that we haven’t thought of. Leaving a comment here is the best way to send us a line.

Till next time, enjoy poking around all your new skills and things. Game on!
