≫ GATEWAY ROLEPLAY'S PLANS FOR BUILD 41 ≪

  • As of today (12/20/2021), Build 41 of Project Zomboid has been pushed to the stable branch!

    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're expecting to be finished with What We Become Part II: What Remains sometime in March, but that's not a hard date. It may be earlier, it may be later. So, 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!!

So, You Want to be a Journalist?

A lot of people write guides of things they're familiar with, so I thought I might throw my hat into the ring and write a bit about how to play a character of a more, journalistic persuasion.

Why should I read this? I've Covered Wars You Know!

Well, I'm EnvyDemon, and I have about... 6 years of work experience at this point working at different publications since I got out of high school. While I mostly write for print mediums, I do have experience in other mediums as well. Of course, you can disregard anything I write here, but I'd hope to pass on some of my knowledge that I've gleamed from my experience, and from my mentors.

Okay, This sounds interesting. What kind of character should I play?

I can't really tell you that. Of course, I can tell you that how you'll go about this will depend on the lore, or the current state of the lore. Are you a reporter trying to get the news out while society collapses around you and the dead rise? Are you a Disk Jockey who managed to clear out/repair an old radio station? Are you a member of a community which as finally established a sense of normalcy, and feels the need to keep the community informed? Well you're in the right place!

Cool. How is this guide organized?

This guide will be written in four parts. Part 1 will cover ethics and common ground between journalists of all mediums. Part 2 will cover Newspapers and Print Journalism. Part 3 will cover Radio Journalism. And Part 4 will cover Television and Broadcast Journalism.

Parts 1 and 2 will be out soon, Parts 3 and 4 will be out later since I do actually need to do a bit more research on my end for them.
