Guide for Discord Use

Welcome to the St Louis hosted Discord server. This is a guide to help you fit in smoothly.

In General

  • Lee(Jekca) is DST. We have some genre VSTS, and chat moderators. Please follow directions from these individuals and ask if you aren’t sure.
  • A channel guide can be found at the bottom of this page. Please use the correct channel for the discussion. As we are somewhat large, following this as much as possible helps us keep organized and sane. Don’t feel bad if someone asks you to move a discussion. Even the management messes that up now and then, just shift on over (you can find Key Locations here.)
  • Cursing is a thing, so fair warning. NSFW posts in OOC need to be kept to a minimum, as some of us check discord at work and work in places where certain materials could get us fired.
  • The “Announcements” channel is used for, well, announcements, PLUS NSFW rps warnings. If you have an RP that is NSWF (keep ERP to non-public rooms or PMs please), post what channel and the time it starts and ends in Announcements due to listed reasons in #3.
  • If your RP is going to be a big scene and probably require ST guides, please ask before you start it. We have lives too and may already BE running something. Don’t melt our brains.
  • Dice! There is a channel for your dice rolls. See number 1 below.
  • The push pin at the top of the channel often has posts pinned you want to read!
  • Golden rule, enough said.

In character notes

  • <p> pause and a power use that requires a roll (there is a channel for rolls using /r Xd10! >=8 where X is the number of dice, ! means 10-again, and >=8 is the success threshold). ALSO, this is a thing that is used rarely and only under direction of your STs.
  • <s> Skill use, often is a private message and mediation moment for you and the other PC(s)
  • *Action goes in here* gives you italics in discord, and is how you show PC actions.
  • <L> (language that is not English) and <F> (first tongue) are generally used to indicate a conversation is not in English. Private message players involved if you aren’t sure if you’d be able to understand them or not. First tongue, High Speech, Italian, and Russian are all used a lot at the moment.
  • /fin indicates scene is done and channel is open for more use.
  • (( parentheticals )) are a way to make a OOC comment mid rp. Suggestion is to make it on it’s own line so you can delete it once whatever is needed to be dealt with is. Examples: ((pause!)) or ((what is your chara wearing?))
  • Timestamp in some way when an RP starts. For example: [Saturday, noon] or [Timeline Current]
  • Do not godmod! Leave the other pcs (and ST controlled NPCs) control of their character’s actions (random NPCS you use to create mood is different). Godmodding will get you swatted. Worse, it might make people not want to RP with you because no one likes their character to be deprived of choice by another PC. Exception: Mediation of some sort where the other PC agreed to said actions.
    • Example of godmodding that does not allow John to respond, use Celerity to get out of the way, etc.: *George enters the room and shoves John out of the way.*
    • Better because it allows John a response: *George enters the room and tries to shove John out of the way.*
  • Those with multiple characters, please be careful to note who you are being in some way. Example: *Anya walks into Boire looking for Lee or Billy* instead of *Walks into Boire* or *She walks into Boire*.
  • City Map with territories, important locations, etc.:
  • List of PCs and wiki pages (using ooc knowledge IC will get you swatted): St. Louis Cross Genre CofD
  • List of known NPCs (that can only be used with permission): St. Louis NPC Masterlist
  • Update your wiki with character stuff. This helps us set scenes, know what your character looks like, etc.
  • Remember that “my character would do it” does not excuse IC behavior OOC. It is always good practice to discuss sensitive material before an RP takes place. OOC matters more than IC. IC is fiction. OOC is real feeling, real people, and real relationships. Ergo, don’t be a dick.
  • [ [Brackets] ] are Typically used by STs or Moderators to set up a scene at the beginning, describe whats going on OOCly, etc. Example: [ [Wednesday at 4 p.m. the water in the fountain turns red and smells of copper.] ].
