Order of Battle - Discord Channel

Post by Shards » Thu Jul 23, 2020 1:56 pm

Hi,

Slitherine has it's own Discord Server, and there is a dedicated Order of Battle channel on there.

You can find it here: https://discord.gg/darpgGX

Feel free to come over and chat about the game or arrange games?

Thanks,

Discord is a chat program, it's a modern version of IRC or MSN Messenger etc.

There are a multitude of servers, each bringing together people with a shared interest. Think of it as a real-time version of this forum!

It's particularly useful I find for arranging and discussing multiplayer games.

Shards,
I been poking around this Discord thang. It looks like it could be very useful e.g., when testing scenarios and so on. This would have been really helpful during beta tests of my scenarios.

Question -- I have my Discord Tag. How do I find out everybody else's?

Do you think it is a bad idea for everyone who doesn't mind being contacted via Discord to post their Discord Tag in response to a post? That way there'd be an index for everyone to use to see who is set up and doesn't mind being Discordulated.

cool!

Shards,

The Discord link you have above goes to a locked text channel on the Slitherine Discord. How do we get access?

The bot needs to verify you. Can't remember what the current process is, I think it'll do it automatically

Shards - I did get the Bot to verify me and open access to the Order of Battle channel on the Slitherine Discord. I had to click the emoji at the bottom of the welcome and conditions instructions. Thanks.
