For those who don't have it, I have a google drive folder with all of the currently published material in pdf form, along with character sheets, the 20 questions pdf guide, and other material.

What number of players are we going for? Should I give some people the game link if they are interested?

I am thinking 4-6, 8 max.  You always lose people.

 Do you think we might get more traction if we switched to discord? It has a huge community, There's the mobile app which sends notifications when people post, we can pin posts, create channels easily, people can very quickly upload new tokens or character sheets, or maps, and there's the option of even popping in for voice chat if people around and felt like it?

And I'm sure we could find a l5r dice bot on there.

Edit: in fact, here is such a bot: https://community.fantasyfligh...ant-bot-dice-roller/

Regarding the L5R dice bot: https://community.fantasyfligh...ant-bot-dice-roller/

I don't really have a preference for RPoL or Discord (I probably wouldn't use voice though). I only had one experience with rpg on Discord and it crashed and burned in a couple of weeks, but it has some good points. So... Well, up to you I guess.

It is pretty easy to upload stuff on there, and the mobile app is attractive too since you can get an immediate notification whenever somebody posts. That and there is such a huge user base for it.

I administrate several discord servers of my own, so if others weren't experienced with doing so I can easily get one setup and promote the GM to have all the needed permissions

Oh I know Discord, I'm on dozen servers, one I administer myself.

I'd be willing to try to play there, but I'm not really pushing for it either. There are definitely some good points, but also some not so good.

As for notifications, I have an android app that warns me in (pretty much) real time if there are new posts on RPoL, so that's not something I'm missing from Discord ;)

In fact, boom. I just created a server if we want to use it.

Roles are already setup, channels created, and dice bot added.

LOL!

How can we turn that down, then?  Looking at it now.

Re: OOC
That link just took me to discord, no new channels?

Re: OOC
If you're using the desktop application, click on the plus at the bottom left corner, join a server and paste the link.

With a browser, maybe you need to log in on Discord before clicking on the link?

Re: OOC
The app is certainly far superior.

OK, doesn't hurt to keep this too, but Discord might be better, want to try that out first and see how we all like it?
