The following strains may be played by anyone. These strains require no background nor approval.

Not Approved for Play at DR: Colorado
While these strains will be able to travel into our game from other games, they will not be approved to local players for play. This is primarily due to the style, focus, and themes of the DR CO game.
What does capped mean?
Capped means that there are not currently slots available for these strains.
We have updated our Restricted Strains list as of the 2017 Season. Please remember that this list evolves with the course of story and the needs of our player base. Those who are already playing one of these Strains are grandfathered if there is a shift in their availability.
All Strains that are marked as limited or restricted must submit a background and costume images for approval, meet the AP requirement and there must be a slot available for the Strain. The population of our player base governs limited and restricted Strains locally and so though you may be interested, there may not be a slot available at the time of submitting approval.
How do I earn AP in order to play the strain I want?
Assistance points may be earned by assisting the game with set up, going above and beyond normal player standards, assisting with additional NPC shifts, or by helping with game requested donations.
