Topic: Discord Sim

One of the things that came up at SciWorld was the possibility of running live Discord sims i.e. chat sims.

I am thinking of running a few of these sims on Ongoing Worlds' Discord channel and wondered if anyone would be interested in joining them.

They would be a mix between 'live' i.e. on the day at a set time and longer term ones where people posted when they could.

It's an interesting thought, though I'd probably post only in the longer term ones as my work schedule is so erratic.

Obviously, least to me anyhow, it would depend on the type of game - genre, that sort of thing. And whether I could make the session. The beauty of online rpgs with emails/forums is the game sits there and you get to it when you have the time.

That's my steer as well. Though the idea of using a chat client to organise something along the lines of a weekly game sounds like an interesting idea.

Re: Discord Sim

Yep. *cough* it could help keep players from posting over each other*cough*

I was looking at doing a fortnightly Covert-81 mission.
