Everything written in our Build 41 FAQ posted 12/19/2021 still stands—Gateway Roleplay's applications will not be opening up again until What We Become Part II: What Remains concludes. Notes have been added to the FAQ to clarify this.
We are still deep in the development stage of our next lore and need more time to make it as great as we possibly can for you all. We also don't want to cut short a lore that's been running for nearly a year and a half for the few players that have stuck it out with us.
We're expecting to be finished with What We Become Part II: What Remains sometime in March, but that's not a hard date. It may be earlier, it may be later. So, stay tuned for the announcement on our next lore! If you join our Discord, you'll be notified as soon as our announcement drops.
We're also looking for new admins! If you're interested in joining the team, don't hesitate to send in an application here. All new admins will be added to the team once our current lore has concluded.
Thanks for your understanding!!

» Decisions regarding what is and is not mechanical gaming are up to the admins' discretions.
» Example: Traveling to a location in-game that you learned of out-of-character that you are not aware of in-character.
» Example: Hearing something commonly said about a character out-of-character, then using that knowledge in-character. (i.e. 'rumors')
» Decisions regarding what is and is not metagaming are up to the admins' discretions.

» Make sure to always 'attempt' actions in order to give others a chance to respond.
» Correct Example: Don throws a punch at Miles, attempting to bring him down to the ground.
» Incorrect Example: Don slugs Miles in the face, bringing him down to the ground.
» This is most frequntly seen in the form of one of your characters telling another information that they can then use in-character.
» In order to prevent storycrossing, your characters may not have any direct interactions whatsoever.
» Example: Don and Miles are dating. Miles dies, and his player creates a new character who immediately grows close to Don.
» This promotes out-of-character cliques, which are not heavily endorsed on our server. It can also be considered metagaming. The two go hand-in-hand.
» Decisions on what is and is not storycrossing are up to the admins' discretions.
» You may take it to Steam, Discord DMs, or wherever as long as it does not take place directly on the server.
» This can be considered mechanical gaming due to the nature of looting in-game.
» Factions are given more leniency when it comes to hoarding.
» Example: Deciding to harm someone in-character because you're upset with them out-of-character.
» Example: Gving someone special treatment in-character because you're on good terms out-of-character.
» Decisions regarding what is and is not bleeding are up to the admins' discretions.
