What is a Marshal? A marshal is someone who accepts a higher level of responsibility at Dystopia Rising: [Branch]. Marshals are extremely important for the structure and well-being for the game overall. A marshal shift takes place during your standard Casting Block and their responsibility can take on many irreplaceable forms. Operations 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 int their writing. Rules Marshals get Cast ready to mobilize quickly, provide them with the proper stats and make sure mods are run as intended. Coord Marshals run the Post office and make sure that the most industrious of players get what they need and with as little error as possible. Settings Marshals ensure that our Cast go out into the world, costume and makeup'ed on par with the best of em.
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 a year 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.
