New Adventures: Dystopia Rising

For this month’s New Adventure, we’ve partnered with the Dystopia Rising LARP to give you three action-packed missions in their universe, unlockable today (and free for Abel Runner’s Club members)!

Generations ago, the Infection was released and spread across the world. Billions fell to the sickness, becoming ravenous zombies. Governments panicked and bombed cities and towns and countries, hoping to halt the spread of the Infection.

It was too late. Those that didn’t fall to the Infection, instead evolved, becoming something more than human. Now, these divergent Strains of humanity struggle to survive together among mutated beasts, raiders, and the ever-present zombies. Small pockets of civilization dot the irradiated wasteland as what is left of humanity tries to survive, and reclaim a portion of what was lost.

In this story, a ragtag band of mercenaries work together to help the New Reach Caravan travel across the dangerous wastes to establish a new town. However, there may be more to fear in the wilderness than just zombies. Will they survive their journey? Or will they succumb to the dangers around them? Join them as a rookie mercenary! Fight against zombies, confront raiders, and deal with everything the wasteland has to throw at you.

Dystopia Rising was originally created by Michael Pucci and Ashley Zdeb, and has expanded to include tabletop roleplay books, LARP, and other media. Hundreds have delved into this post-apocalyptic world, and now you can join in! This New Adventure was written by Catie Griffin from Most Improbable with punch up and graphic design done by Michael Pucci, also from Most Improbable.
