• 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.

Punishment Policies

General Punishment Policies

  • All punishments are documented both on the forums and in the Discord server.
    • Punishment documentation on the forums is available to the public for the sake of transparency.
    • To view active and archived bans & warnings, refer to this subforum.

  • Depending on the severity of your offense, you may be handed a heavier punishment.


  • A warning may be given for any reason deemed fit by a member of staff.
  • After you've recieved three warnings, you will be given a temporary ban.
    • At times, you may be given a verbal warning as opposed to a formal, documented warning.
    • This will not count towards your three warnings, but should still be taken seriously.

  • Warnings expire after a month unless otherwise specified and may be removed by a member of staff at any time.
    • All warnings will be visible on your forum profile even after they've expired.


  • After you've recieved three warnings or have committed a serious offense, you will be given a ban.
  • The typical ban lengths and repercussions are as follows:
    • Discord: 24-to-48-hour-long server mute in the Gateway Discord server.
    • Forums: 24-to-48-hour-long shoutbox ban.
    • Game: 24-to-48-hour-long ban from the server.

  • If you continue to infringe upon the rules or evade your ban, you will recieve a longer and heavier punishment.
    • You will recieve a permanent ban from the Gateway community after numerous temporary bans or if you commit an offense serious enough, as determined by staff.

  • If you would like to appeal your ban, you may submit an appeal.
    • Submitting an appeal does not guarantee your ban will be overrturned.
    • If your offense was serious enough, you may not be allowed to submit an appeal.
