• 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.

What is Gateway Roleplay?

Gateway Roleplay is a roleplay community for the game Project Zomboid, currently under development by The Indie Stone.
Gateway Roleplay, originally New Dawn Roleplay, was formed in 2014 making it one of, if not the longest-running Project Zomboid roleplay community to date.
We focus on providing a hardcore, realistic roleplay environment for our players to make playing the game a more exhilarating experience than ever before!
Our typical lore structure consists of seasons and episodes, like a TV show. Think of each season as an arc in the story.
Each episode starts with an event and typically lasts a week or two. Each season typically lasts 8-12 episodes, including a premier and a finale.
Our events are typically high risk/high reward scenarios, offering a great amount of development for your character.

Sound interesting? We'd love to have you join us!
