Default Re: GURPS Discord Server is up and running!

I first came across Discord because a lot of folks in the Roll20 community use it in place of the integrated voice and I found it to be stable, easy to use, with good sound quality. Then I used it for a few games of Overwatch. Then I joined a few more gaming channels.

In a short time, it's become part of my exclusive list of "Start when Windows starts" programs because it keeps me plugged into a number of ongoing chats throughout the day as I'm doing other stuff.

When I was surprised to not find an existing GURPS channel, I couldn't let that stand! Hope to see you around.

Howdy, Folks!

As we hit 2017 runnin', the GURPS Discord server is up to 300 members, about 80 of whom are logged in and lurking at any given time, with usually a dozen or so actively chatting (at least when I get home from work in the morning and log in).

There are numerous conversations about settings, characters, rules clarifications, new and old products, GURPS apps (GCA, GCS, gCALC, etc.), even a few games being organized and run.

Pop in and look around anytime, see what you think. The more the merrier.

Looking forward to big things in GURPS in 2017!

I've found the Discord very welcoming and enjoyable. Though I have yet to see anyone vocal chatting.

Voice is bad for logging, and not convenient in many situations such as when at work, or doing some other stuff, or watching films/TV.

Considering the fact I know GURPS players who are also Discordians, I will check it out and spread the word.

The unofficial GURPS Discord Server celebrates its one-year anniversary today!

I am delighted with the community and success that have sprung up in just that year, with just over 800 total registrations and 200 members logged in on any given day. Rules have been tinkered, worlds have been polished, GURPS newbies have been welcomed and enlightened, players have found GMs and vice-versa.

We are a SFW group who real-time chat about the GURPS rules (as well as other games, movies/TV shows, books, and other gamer-type things), answer questions, give feedback and advice on world creation and campaign building, and basically try to enjoy a shared space where GURPS old-timers, complete newbies, and the merely curious can get together and geek out.

Hope to see many new faces as we embark on the second year of many!

I'll add that I have had some fun running a couple of games on the server and that I intend to run more when time gets freed up.

Really good idea.
Unfortunately it seems that nobody there is using actual voice chat, just text based one. I thought discord was all about voice chatting : (
