Hi all,

In an attempt to continue some measure of contact and routine between Labyrinthe and our wonderful player base I am running a weekly "Virtual Desk". This will be between 11:00 and 14:00 on Saturdays. You do not have to have made any donations whatsoever to join in, and spend time with people. You can come for 30 seconds and say hi, or stay for hours. It doesn't matter, I will just be there. You can use video or just voice, up to you, no judgement. And the server will stay there for people to randomly pop on and chat anyway. The forums should remain your main space for posting and sharing stuff, but Discord is a way to see people's faces, hear their voices and chat a bit more casually.

The link to the Discord server is https://discord.gg/wDAd54d

During the Virtual Desk period I will be sorting out people's makes that they may have obtained through the various donation schemes. There is a function on the Discord server and a channel for doing the rolls. It's simple enough, you type !<number of dice><type of dice>. I envisage us typically using D100, or D10. But we will be chatting by voice so we all know what we are doing (ish) smile.gif

Discord can be downloaded as an app on your phone and/or your computer for free.

You can use a monthly make slot whenever you like in the month, and the weekly ones weekly obviously. If you miss them then I am sure we can sort it out, but try not to pile up a dozen to do in one go! smile.gif

I have a pretty good sense of what most people can/can't make, but it might be helpful to share pics of relevant apps if you're making something super fruity.

I will make a note of what everyone makes and when able will write everything up. As you might predict, you won't get your makes till you have sorted the Grull payment!

Of course, if you can't make the 11:00 - 14:00 Saturday slot, I will sort something out with you separately, but I would encourage people to try and do that time as part of the purpose of this is to keep the community spirit alive!

You can join up/get set up now but the first Virtual Desk will be 24th October.

See you on a Discord server soon!

I assume we will have a channel on there where people can just hang out and chat if they wish as well?

this is a great idea; how I am going to persuade my wife that she needs to take the kids to swimming so I can jump on this is the challenge...

Thanks for doing this - bang tidy blush.gif

It's a make slot. So exactly as if you were down at the weekend 🙂 Your businesses, art galleries, days at the races and of course your potions/scrolls etc 🙂 And you get to spend time with me! And anyone else who's about I guess 😉

I’m rubbish at makes (read as too lazy to get a full understanding!)

If I’m working can I send a message rather than join a chat and take the make or fail on a trust basis - in any case when I see the dice roll I don’t know what it means when they stop!

Hey all, don't forget this starts tomorrow if you haven't already got yourself sorted! Everyone is welcome to come and chat, froth etc.

There are two voice channels. The lobby which is for people to hang out and chat, and "the desk" which, this may shock you, is for doing makes and things smile.gif

In answer to a common question. BUD items will be from when the caves re-opens.

See you in the AM!

Just to say that despite my expectations, it was quick and easy doing makes at the virtual desk, maybe even more so than at the actual desk. It was also nice to chat with people in the lobby, see their faces and hear their voices (apart from with Hoz, obviously).
