• Applications for Wave 2 of our combat tests are officially open! Players may only apply for File #7: Infiltrator, File #8: Siege, and File #9: Wayward currently, but we will be opening applications for 7-28-78 soon.

    What We Become: Survivor Stories is a series of bite-sized scenarios meant to test our new and improved combat system in action! Our first wave contained 5 different scenarios, all taking place within the What We Become universe. Our second wave will contain 5 more scenarios. If you've been waiting to play on the server, now's your chance!

    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 the current scenario on its respective forum post, linked above.

    Make sure to check out our latest newsletter for information about each of the upcoming combat tests.

Notoriety System

Notoriety System

This system tracks the fame and reputation of all characters within the world, on a scale of 1 to 10.

It reflects how well-known a character is and the perception factions have of them, both positive and negative.

Notoriety System Overview

  • During events, there will be critical moments where a character's decisions and background will have a significant impact on the story.
    • A character's actions in these moments will contribute to their notoriety, which reflects how well-known and infamous they are among NPCs and other players.

  • Some examples of such moments include:
    • Killing an important figure in front of a crowd.
    • Having rumors spread about a character that are perceived as a fact in the public eye.
    • Possessing fame as a well-known, public figure.
    • Participating in a high-profile raid that leads to a character's identity being publicly exposed.

  • The Notoriety System acts as a collection of cliff notes, offering a glimpse into significant moments and probiding enough information for players to grasp the general idea of what happened during an event.
    • The system avoid spoiling every little details and leaves room for further exploration and discussion amongst characters.

Notoriety Leaderboard

  • The NOTORIETY LEADERBOARD serves as a record of character notoriety, organized by their faction affiliation.
