• Applications for What We Become: Survivor Stories are currently on hold while we work on creating our second wave of combat tests.

    What We Become: Survivor Stories is a series of bite-sized scenarios meant to test our new and improved combat system in action! Our first wave contained 5 different scenarios, all taking place within the What We Become universe. Our second wave will contain 5 more scenarios. If you've been waiting to play on the server, now's your chance!

    Additionally, each scenario has a limited number of slots for each role in the party, as well as an overall participation limit. If you apply for a role/scenario that is already full, you will be asked to apply for a different role/scenario. You can view the number of slots remaining for the current scenario on its respective forum post, linked above.

    Make sure to check out our latest newsletter if you haven't yet! It has lots of information about our upcoming lore, among other things.

Paypal/Patreon Donation

Overview Donations Comments

Gateway Roleplay (GWR) costs $79 USD/month and $45 USD/year for the dedicated server and forum domain registration respectively.
Any and all donations to help keep our server going are appreciated!

* If you'd like to make a one-time donation or prefer to donate monthly via PayPal, contact @jianmingyong via DM on either the forums or Discord for our PayPal information. *
* Including your forum and Discord usernames in the notes field of your donation will help to streamline the process. *
* Donations through both PayPal and Patreon will grant you special perks! *

How are the donation funds used?
  • Nearly all donations are put towards our monthly server payments and year domain registration payment.
    • If we happen to go over our goal in any given month, the funds will be set aside for the next month.
  • We may also use donation funds to purchase server and software upgrades.

How does donating via Patreon work?
  • Perks are given on a cumulative basis. This means that if you donate $15 USD once and do not donate again the next month, you'll maintain your perks.
  • There are a few perks that are restricted to only those who donate monthly, but the majority are available forever as long as you donate once.
  • Like any other Patreon, donating toward a higher tier will grant you the perks that come with the lower tiers as well.
When will I receive my perks?
  • If you included your forum/Discord usernames in your donation note, we'll be able to deliver your perks right away.
  • Otherwise, submit a support ticket via our donation claims form and include a screenshot of your receipt or some other confirmation email. We'll be able to deliver your perks from there.
    • If we do not deliver your perks within 24 hours of donating, feel free to submit a donation claim ticket!
    • If you donate via Patreon and don't receive your perks by the time the next payment cycle comes around, we'll issue you a refund.
