Just do it. Join us.
If you guys come, I would run a SCHWA playtest of an adventure I sorta started converting years ago.
I did a little "research" and I don't trust Discord. Gmail and Youtube are one thing; google already knows all the details of my life better than I do. I'm not ready to let another corporation have that kind of access.

They have my username, email address and I did give them my phone number. They may also know my porn preferences.....

Mostly how much time of my life is spent playing RPGs online.

Discord has changed a lot over the last couple years. Would love to have you on the server.
So, I need to reword the Discord Welcome Message and then setup a Rules/Mission statement.

Right now the Welcome is split into two messages that I need to make one message within the character limit.


MSG 1

Welcome to Furiously Eclectic People

FEP hearkens back to just after BBSs went out and Mailing Lists started up. We’ve been hosted at a few forums and facebook, losing people and gaining others which each shift in medium. Now we’re on Discord.

FEP to me is a place where people from various backgrounds can find common ground and enjoy each other’s company even when disagreeing on fundamental issues.

This particular server currently is essentially a place to talk about tabletop gaming and to play virtual tabletop games with the former ideas in place. People of various ethos playing together and enjoying life.

What we do:
• We host annual virtual gaming events. See pins in #talk-about-events-we-host.
• We host single/limited sessions of RPGs usually on a Saturday. See #talk-about-events-we-host and contact @Kersus#6105 if you want to run something.
• We do groupwatch viewings of tv shows and movies in the Cocktail Lounge and #cocktail-lounge
• Generally all events hosted here can be signed up in #event-schedule.
• Discord Bot games are for everyone to use and enjoy. See them at #help-with-discord-games.
• We are firm believers in using the spoiler tag or to at least not publicly spoil movies or books in #books-movies-tv

We don’t reject any games, however the current mainstays of this server for RPGs are Classsic Traveller and the clone of Holmes, Blueholme. We also enjoy obscure games like Far Away Land (which has a weekly campaign) and Lejendary Adventure. Encouraged are games like Mork Borg, Tails of Equestria and Troika!

Along with Blueholme, we are nostalgic about AD&D1e and anything earlier along with modern clones of those versions of D&D (Delving Deeper for instance).

It's not unheard of to see Call of Cthulhu, Cryptworld, the Eldritch RPG and Pendragon played here as well.
Please do read through #rules-navigation-roles and select some self-assigned roles that are specific to you. This way you will be tagged if a game or event you might be interested in comes up.

Pull up and easy chair, grab your favourite libation and join in some wildly multifarious fun. See you in #general-discussion!

RULES

Please read through all the posts in this channel

RULES

Be nice. Play for fun. Don't spam. Ask permission to advertise. No cursing (fine within applicable adult games but there are also child friendly games here so no cursing in general text channels please).

The intention of this server is to bring together people of different backgrounds and interests so be patient. The person you're chatting with may look at the world differently.

We propose that people with very different views can be friends; believing some of the most genuinely nice people you'll ever know have strikingly different beliefs with religion, politics and economics. Ignore the hot button issue and look at the person.

Please use the spoilers tag spoil me when talking about tv/movies/books where applicable. Use || on either side of the spoiler.

Patience, willingness to laugh at yourself, courtesy, and of course puns!


From all those above I need a single Welcome message and a rules post and mission statement. Any advice or help is appreciated.
