≫ TIES THAT BIND: CITY OF ANGELS & TIES THAT BIND: WHAT LIES BENEATH ≪
It's official, our next main lore, and its accompanying mini lore have been announced: Ties That Bind: City of Angels and Ties That Bind: What Lies Beneath!
You can read more about them in our newest newsletter here. Information regarding our mod list and overall plans can be found in our Build 41 FAQ.
We will open up applications for Ties That Bind: What Lies Beneath once What We Become Part II: What Remains has concluded. Stay tuned for that announcement! If you join our Discord, you'll be notified as soon as it drops.
Thank you to everyone for your patience! We're excited to share everything we've been working on.
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.
