• Applications are now open for What We Become: Survivor Stories, a series of bite-sized scenarios meant to test our new and improved combat system in action! Our first wave contains 6 different scenarios, all taking place within the What We Become universe. If you've been waiting to play on the server, now's your chance!

    Currently, applications for File #4: Manhunt are open. Applications for the remaining scenarios will open at a later date.

    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 each 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.
