Dystopia Rising LARP Survivors Guide 2.0
by Anthony O. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/17/2020 14:19:29

Dystopia Rising is a great summation of the RPG game for Live Action Role Playing. The book fills players with excitement. New player groups silently move beyond pre-2020s gaming into new paradigms while coating them in fear and mysteries of the Post Apocalyptic future. Wear boots.

Dystopia Rising Evolution: Larp Evolved
by Val M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/17/2019 22:24:22

The entire design is a rehash of the original game and counters its own promises of inclusion and a lack of internal strife among players by keeping old text that contains requirements for those strifes. While parts of the system may have been reviewed, it is obvious the document wasn't reviewed as a whole by individuals with a critical eye for detail. The LARP book notes to check the table top books for additional details but they are, as yet, unwritten as the publisher is using fixes in the LARP side to write the table top version. The game lacks any meaningful playtesting at differing character levels and, in reading from the publisher, playtesting before publication was not intended. Instead, the LARP venues will charge players to play the system in order to report bugs and issues while hemoraging players who expected a decent system. Changes to the pricing structure and a total lack of rewards for volunteer crafting and actions will leave players frustrated. This is to say nothing of the staff (guides and writers) who's only reward for providing material for the game is a discount at the Dystopia Rising store. Eschaton Media could have done a lot better but chose not to and it shows.

Valley of the Misery Machine - Dystopia Rising
by Val M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/31/2017 17:30:12

A very useful addition to the Dystopia Rising world. The only real negative is that the book appears to have skipped a good final proof-reading before publication. The book is also missing a section but based on page numbering, it was likely cut from the book but its references never removed. A general map or two would have been helpful as well as those tend to give placement for an overall layout and scale of distances.

Valley of the Misery Machine - Dystopia Rising
by Ian A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/30/2017 05:50:17

10/10, wish there was a little more on Retrogrades but it did cover exactly what I thought. Rock Salt was not at all what I thought it was but I loved it much more then I though I was going to. Also, Crop tending is really animal handling of the gravemind XD

Diaries of the Rum Coast - Dystopia Rising
by A customer [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/06/2017 19:23:28

This one I've got in both paper and digital versions, and like the other area-specific sourcebooks, it suffers from a general lack of mechanical content, and heavy re-use of text and images from the larp. The primary market here appears to be getting cash for bits of additional IC information for the larp, as I've been unable to get anyone to actually play the tabletop version, and others seem to have similar luck, even online. Honestly, there's a lot of product out there that covers the whole "undead apocalypse" genre much better. These have about six pages of rules per $20 book, and that's a bit much by my standards.

Dystopia Rising LARP Survivors Guide 2.0
by A customer [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/06/2017 18:56:56

There's a large number of errors in the product, including basic typos. It badly needs a good proofreading, and some editing wouldn't hurt. The ruleset is unfortunately not actually accurate for the larp, with some sections, such as farming, working entirely differently than as described here, so the rulebook actually leads you wrong, and a few bits of the rulebook actually contradict themselves(such as being required both to, post theft, both hold a players item for hours, and also to turn it in immediately at ops). However you feel about the larp system as a whole, the rulebook is badly in need of a round of updates at present.

Echoes of Celluloid Dreams - Dystopia Rising
by A customer [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/06/2017 18:48:02

Art is generally simply reused from the core book, and the book contains almost no rules for actual play. Very little space is given to interesting concepts such as Arcadians(about a paragraph), and instead, it's mostly a rehash of things already available elsewhere. Ultimately, this book offers very little new content to enhance play, and end of the day, you're getting six advantages/disadvantages in total, six monster entries for...pretty mundane creatures, and a single table of alchohol names. That's pretty meager for $15-20.
