• On 08/10/2022, we made the jump to Build 41 to finish up What We Become Part II: What Remains!

    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 don't have an ETA on when we'll be finished with What We Become Part II: What Remains. 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!!

Character Rules

General Character Rules

  • All characters must have a real first and last name.

» We are no longer allowing common misspellings of names (e.g. Nickolas, Tiler, Khaileigh, Merandah, Soosin, Kameron, Klancy, etc.)
» Yes people have applied before with the names stated above. No we are not happy about it.

  • If you choose to give your character a faceclaim, only use photos of public figures.

» Using a random photo you found on someone's social media without their explicit consent is highly inappropriate.
» Actors/Models/Athletes/Musicians/etc. are examples of public figures. If you're unsure, you can always ask!

  • All characters must be 16 or older. No exceptions.
  • Players may not play a self-insert or any actual person, living or deceased.

» This includes crude interpretations of actual people, living or deceased.

  • Players may not play existing fictional characters from TV shows, movies, video games, etc. (e.g. Rick Grimes)

Fear Roleplay

  • Players must roleplay fear. No character is fearless.

» Failure to roleplay fear in a generally horrifying situation is considered powergaming.
» This rule is flexible depending on the personality of the character in question.

Alternate Characters

  • Players may play up to two characters at a time.

» Anyone who donates may play three characters at a time.

» Looting your character's claim after they have died with another one of your characters is strictly forbidden and counts as metagaming.

  • Players may not play the same character concept two times in a row.

» Example: Playing two 50-year-old smugglers one after another.

Absurdity Clause
  • Certain actions performed by characters may be voided for the sake of realism and sticking to their skillset.
  • We understand our server often deals with absurd situations, some unrealistic, some realistic within the realms of our universe. However, we withhold the right to scrutinize certain situations and call for voids.

» Allowed Example: You're trapped on the other side of a bridge; you've spotted a bit of loose cable hanging from a semi-secure support beam. In your backstory, you've mentioned having experience with acrobatics and decide to make a last minute decision: sprint, jump, and swing across to escape! Because your character has explicitly mentioned skills in this area, this is alright.
» Disallowed Example: You're attempting to assassinate a player in-charge of a faction. To do this, seven pipe bombs to the bottom of the player's desk chair and intend on detonating them upon them sitting down. This is absurd for several reasons, namely the size and amount of the explosives. They would surely be spotted.

Restricted Characters

  • At times, certain character occupations may be restricted to promote diversity in the server.
  • Characters who were played in What We Become are only being accepted on a limited basis.
