For two years, TER has been running on love and passion for a hobby that is shared among the NWN community.
It began its life from a home server machine, where despite its age, ran daily with little to no downtime at all. The server grew rapidly from just a mere handful of players to reaching the player cap on fortunate days. To meet the demand, we lifted the player cap from 15 to 24.
It was clear that running on a home bandwidth was not feasible in the long run. In 2015, TER was moved to an external host, Zare Networks UK, whilst the forums moved away from its FreeForums hosting to have its own domain. During this year and a bit, Kilaana paid for the upkeep of these services out of her own pocket despite earning an irregular income. With her personal circumstances growing harder, it was decided after much hesitation to open a call for donations to assist with the running of the server as well as the forums.
Each month, it costs GBP 15.00 (USD 18.00) to run both the server and the forums. We have tried to keep the costs of running this place to the barest minimum.
If you enjoy TER and can afford to spare a dollar or two, a group effort can help keep it running. The money pool will be used to pay for the server's and forum's monthly fees respectively.
You can make a payment to the server's email address via Paypal, or Google Wallet:
Donation logs will be maintained to show how your coin is delegated to each month's upkeep. Donor-names will always be stated, unless you drop me a PM to specify otherwise.
