What is a Guide? A marshal is someone who accepts a higher level of responsibility at Dystopia Rising: Colorado. Guides 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 Guides 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 Guides get Cast ready to mobilize quickly, provide them with the proper stats and make sure mods are run as intended. Logistics Guides run the Post office and make sure that the most industrious of players get what they need and with as little error as possible.
Being a guide can be taxing at times and those who take on these important roles should subscribe to the notion of “self care”. Guides 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.
