Onyx Path Publishing and Eschaton Media Announce the Release Dystopia Rising: Evolution, a New Tabletop RPG

April 15, 2020 — Rich Thomas, founder and creative director of Onyx Path Publishing, in conjunction with Eschaton Media announced the release of Dystopia Rising: Evolution. Dystopia Rising: Evolution is a tabletop RPG based on Eschaton Media’s popular post-zombie apocalypse themed Dystopia Rising live-action scenarios. The game was designed using the Storypath system.

Dystopia Rising (DR) is set in a post-zombie apocalypse world where characters fight to survive in horrific conditions. Created in 2009, DR has enjoyed a cult following of players who immerse themselves in live-action horror scenarios. Every weekend, DR players reside in survivor settlements to step away from the modern world and into a unique post-apocalyptic experience. Though it began as an event, DR has become so popular the property has spawned novels and the upcoming RPG.

Both digital and print editions of the new tabletop RPG, Dystopia Rising: Evolution, are now available online and in stores. Find copies at:
