The Dystopia Rising: Massachusetts Team

LARPing is a labor of love and we're lucky to have an amazing team of humans to help make your event great. This is more than just out hobby -- it's our love, our community, and our life. We pride ourselves on being a community first and a game second -- every stranger you're standing next to could very well be your future best friend. Our supporting staff, from Marshals to Storytellers, are the individuals who help create the canvas of DR:MA, but it's you (our players!), who help to paint it.

Interested in joining staff?

We will often reach out on our Facebook pages when we're looking for new staff members -- if you're interested in joining, please keep an eye out there for our needs -- but we are almost always on the look-out for new people who want to be more involved. You can find applications for staff positions here:
