A Kind Soul

Wanna help without (almost) any counterpart? Buy a special thank you from Nyu!
I'm still alone at managing, developing and fixing stuff on the server.
It's a 7/7 full time job (that I don't get paid for) and hosting + advertising cost more than what the shop generate in revenues each month.

Any help will be greatly appreciated (but absolutely not required!).

I enjoy doing all of this and seeing players having fun! I hope you have too!

- Nyu.
