Strain Restrictions

When you go to different Chapters, or Trades, you'll find there's a shift of Strains of local characters. Some Trades may have a lot of Yorkers, but almost no Natural Ones, or a different Trade town that has a whole pile of Purebloods, but close to no Remnants. These shifts are based on the location and story of your Chapter. These strains will be approved or denied based on what we here at DR: Ohio find appropriate in regards to story and genre.  These may change with the flow of story and time; we strive to keep everything in sync.
 

Open Approval

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

  • Bay Walker

  • Nation of Accensor
  • Natural One
  • Red Star
  • Remnant

Additional Approval

Additional Approval characters require an approved background before they will be considered for play.  These Strains call for genre costuming, and will require approval. This is to keep the true feel and look of a world after the Fall.

  • Diesel Jocks
  • Reclaimer
  • Unborn

Limited Approval

Limited Approval characters require an approved background before they will be considered for play.  Limited Approval character backgrounds must exemplify the players knowledge of Dystopia Rising genre and world materials. In additions, players that wish to play a Limited Approval strain must also expend 150 assistance points upon approval.  Players must have at least 150 assistance points earned before applying for one of the following strains:

  • Yorker
  • Semper Mort

Restricted Approval

Restricted Approval characters require an approved background before they will be considered for play.  Restricted Approval character backgrounds must exemplify the Dystopia Rising genre and world materials.  In additions, players that wish to play a Restricted Approval strain must also expend 300 assistance points upon approval.  Players must have at least 300 assistance points earned before applying for one of the following strains:

  • Pureblood
  • Vegasian

These are both extremely rare in our in game area, so the number of total in play will be very limited.

Not Approved for Play at DR OH

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 Ohio game.

  • Full Dead
  • Saltwise
