Guide Application

Interested in helping out at DR:MI? Have a talent for makeup? Good with people? You could help us out as a Guide!

What is a Guide? A guide is someone who accepts a higher level of responsibility at Dystopia Rising: Michigan. A guide shift takes place during your standard Casting Block, replacing NPC time.

  • Ops Marshals take on the task of making sure there is content to run out in the field, and to take notes on the story that took place so that Writers can maintain proper continuity in their writing.

  • Rules Marshals get NPCs ready to mobilize quickly, provide them with the proper stats and make sure mods are run as intended.

  • Coord Marshals run the Public Works and make sure that the most industrious of players get what they need and with as little error as possible by filling out item cards and printing Blueprints.

  • Settings Marshals ensure that our characters go out into the world costumed and makeup'ed on par with the best of them.


Being a marshal can be taxing at times and those who take on these important roles should subscribe to the notion of “self-care”. Marshals can now and are encouraged to take time off if they are feeling at all burnt out from helping keep many number of games, running each year. These things take their toll. It is alright to take a break.

To all of our Marshals Past, Present and Future… Thank You. Never stop being amazing. Please fill out the following form truthfully and to the best of your ability.
