To fully accommodate our large player base, we have the following policies:
TENTS & SLEEPING
We will not raid tents between the hours of 3am and 8am. This includes raids from NPCs or PCs. When we raid a tent we will ask the players inside to come out; we do this to protect players and property. Players have sixty seconds to exit their tent, at which point they can respond to the attack. Players who do not exit their tent in sixty seconds will resume play in bleed-out, simulating that the characters were taken by surprise and could not defend themselves.
OUT OF GAME SLEEP
If you require out-of-game sleep, you must provide a doctor's note which says that you require special sleep accommodations and you can safely participate in the events themselves. Please scan and send this note to DystopiaRising.Oklahoma@gmail.com. With that note on file, you will receive a sign off that you can show to staff indicating that you are sleeping out-of-game and you cannot be attacked. This only applies to you and does not extend to other players that may be sleeping in the same space.
The nature of our busy game can make it very difficult to meet face-to-face with the Storyteller best equipped to answer your questions. To accommodate research questions in a relatively timely manner, we use correspondence.
Research questions can be dropped in the Plotbox, which is the green mailbox on the table in Logistics. The Plotbox is checked periodically over the course of the event. Responses will be left in a log in the Black Binder. Players should ask a Marshal to check the binder periodically for a response.
Typically, the Plotbox is tended to late on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon, Saturday evening, and Sunday.
While not strictly necessary, Storytellers often find it helpful to know what your theory is about the topic that you're researching. This way, if a question isn't really on the ball, we can at least address your theory and give some insight that might be helpful.
When leaving any requests in the Plotbox, please include character's name, player number, your questions and anything that will help you with your research (specific lores, plot items, etc.)
We make use of a number of recurring Face NPCs to reinforce our setting or tend to on-going plot. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate downtime correspondence with those NPCs. If you wish to correspond or talk with a Face NPC then we encourage you to either wait until they can be found in game. Or leave a letter for them in the Plotbox in Logistics.
While we cannot honor every request for a Face NPC to hit the play space, we do so when we can. If a Face NPC is already scheduled to go out, having a letter or request helps inform us how to use that NPC to further the stories you are interested in. If we missed you for any reason, be vigilant and try again next event.
