Utopia Descending: New England is a group of event runners who run multiple Utopia Descending story groups that have narrative, plot, and story that are intertwined while keeping the themes and genre of each chapter completely different from each other. The four groups are the Utopia Descending: Purgatory, Utopia Descending: Vanguard, Utopia Descending: Rites of Passage, and Utopia Descending: North East Table Top chapters. These events are ran in Massachussettes, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
UD: Vanguard is a game that combines corporate espionage and military life in an experience that allows people to engage either corporate or military structure while fighting against the rift.
UD: Purgatory is a game that focuses on civilian and small town life in an environment where magic, the spookier sides of the supernatural, and the occult are the primary focuses.
UD: Rites of Passage is a game that focuses on the folklore and strange culture of New Jersey. While so many other UD games can be dramatic, none are as strange as Rites of Passage.
Quartermasters are a group of people who are players, but have traded their standard NAC shift for more of a support NAC shift. Quartermasters must pass community safety tests first.
Pillars UNLEASHED! Real Missions! Real Danger! Real Prizes!
The new Connecticut River Rift high stakes challenge show where we tally the points of individual teams A and B as they complete real missions with added twists!
A terrifying turf war has been raging between Elephant-like and Wolf-Like humanoids known as the Probids and the Canids. Up until recently the turf war has granted Pillars the upper hand as the two frequently slaughtered each other, but a halt in activity has raised attention to the region.
Team A will compete on November 17, while Team B will compete on November 18.
On November 24th, the stakes are risen as the wolf and elephant-like humanoids turn aggro! The challenges are twice as difficult, and the risks are twice as high! We are sending in our UNLEASHED Team, to complete their mission with suicidal conditions.
Say it with me. UNLEASH! THOSE! PILLARS!
The online tabletop takes place on three different dates. Your storyteller, John Marquis, will reach out to you before each game to give you a link to the online Tabletop and Discord.
This is the Quartermaster Ticket.
Hell Hath Frozen is a full event for Utopia Descending New England: Purgatory! Join us for simulated combat in a non-military controlled space in the world of Utopia Descending as you face horrors near the Rifts, solve puzzles that let you learn what you may be facing, and engage in a full American freeform roleplay zone as you get to know local characters that live in the struggling paranormal town of Purgatory.
Cold has coated the town, and silver bells are heard within the woods. Hunger grasps at the denizens of Purgatory, and ice curls against the windows.
This full event takes place at Camp Pomperaug, 1174 Buckley Hwy, Union, Connecticut 06076
Event begins at 11 AM and goes to 10 PM on December 1, 2018.
Join us for an online tabletop that takes you to Dante’s Asylum! Each experience uses the Roll20 tabletop system, and storyteller Max Deville will reach out before each event to give a link to the online tabletop and Discord.
Due to all the awful weather, ISTO base Paradiso has discovered that pieces of the wall surrounding the Asylum has begun to break, and in some places chunks have fallen off. While this may not be quite cause for alarm, the latent energy from these broken pieces has begun mutating the creatures and plants around base! ISTO needs pillars to not only clear out the uglies that have sprung up, but fix the wall keeping the Asylum in check.
Things inside the asylum, despite all the holiday entertainment, have appeared to have grown worse. According to ecological studies done on many of the floors over the past few months, a number of giant beasts have begun invading and killing local populations. ISTO is encouraging pillar teams to enter on a trophy hunt. Whichever of the pillar teams sent in brings back the most heads of these creatures, named “Catacreatures”, will earn a big payday and prize.
‘Tis the season for giving, remembering your loved ones, and snagging as much loot as possible for yourself (to repurpose later on in life as kitschy furniture). As a gift to the pillars who have been working so hard this year, ISTO Base Paradiso is inviting you to raid their vault (and test out their new security measures…), filled with relics and gear and wealth galore. Rules are simple, you need to go in with a team, you can keep anything you take, but you need to make it out in one piece to claim your prize.
