ACtion REQUEST

We’ll take your request and pair it with one of our excellent Writers. They will take your request and turn it into a fully fleshed out module, which we will try and send out at the requested time.

If pressed for time (we can only fit so much horror into a weekend) we will prioritize the modules that engage and interact with the most players. Don't worry though, if your plot doesn't get run the month following your request we'll put it higher on the priority list for the next month.

Keep in mind, this isn't a tool to bring NPCs out for personal RP, nor is it likely that every detail of what you are asking for will go exactly by the script you provide. Less is often more, and we’ve found that requests that give our writers the opportunity to put their own creative flair on it tend to be more fulfilling than ones that try to script every moment. We're going to work with you and make sure the module matches genre, overarc tone, continuity and also provides the best potential for plot and story. These stories are for you, so please don't submit requests for anyone else without discussing it with them, in detail.

Master Skill Action Requests

A number of skills require communication between the event team and a participant before an event occurs. These skills may influence the direction of story or create specific scenes that can be requested via an Action Request. These skill-related Action Requests must be put in at least a month before the next event.

READ THIS SECTION BEFORE FILLING OUT THE FORM

Please try to submit plot requests a month in advance to give our team a chance to develop a deeper story.

Please be informative and succinct as you fill out the form. If there are backstories or other plots that you are referencing please make sure that you have submitted them and they’ve been approved. If you are expanding on an NPC from your background, please let the writer know the details of that NPC.

We can only use materials from backstories of Dystopia Rising: Michigan characters and we can only run plots and stories that originate inside Michigan. If you have an idea for a plot that involves more than one branch of Dystopia Rising please email dystopiarisingmi@gmail.com so we can discuss it among the involved branches. This form is not built for that kind of request.

Try to put your story request together after reading the Dystopia Rising world materials, considering how you would want the story to feel, and which people you want to involve. The more players you involve in your request the more resources we invest into bringing the story to life. Plus, you get another amazing story to share with your friends.
