Crewing in RoC

Basics

Like any system the Rising of Chaos is reliant on the voluntary services of people that make the game run on event, behind the scenes and plot writing. These roles are demanding, time consuming and tiring but are a deeply rewarding experience for all involved but we still make sure that those that give us their time are valued for it.

Being a member of the crew is a responsible position which covers, at its core, the happiness and wellbeing of the players that are booked into the event. You will be part of the vibrant and living worlds that RoC is but you yourself must be having fun and enjoying the events. That is what RoC hopes to bring you.

If you want to crew for us, in any of the prescribed formats, then please contact us here and let us know what you want to do or sign up for our Crew Facebook Page.
