Come join the unofficial Starmourn Discord!
What is Discord?
Discord is a voice and text chat program designed for gamers. It works on both desktops and mobile devices. There are versions available for Windows, Mac (OSX and iOS), Android, and Linux. The feature list of Discord is quite extensive, however, succinctly, it is a simple yet powerful program that enables communication. It is similar, in some ways, to programs such as Skype, Teamspeak, or Ventrilo.
What is the unofficial Starmourn Discord?
The unofficial Starmourn Discord was created to give players excited about Starmourn a place to gather and chat in real time. While the Starmourn forums and website remain the primary mechanisms for news and information releases about the game, the unofficial Starmourn Discord allows players to discuss character concepts, roleplay ideas, and theorycraft in general about the game. Also, through the use of RSS plugins, the unofficial Starmourn Discord can also help you to be informed when a new post is made.
What is discussed on the unofficial Starmourn Discord?
Generally, the conversation tends to focus on Starmourn itself. The discussions generally range about ideas for characters, discussion about how systems might work, theorycrafting with regard to the lore of the game, and also discussion when new information is released. There are also non-Starmourn related channels where other games, real life, or just about anything else (within reason) can be discussed. The objective of this server is to enable players to meet and interact with other players who are also interested in Starmourn.
How do I get Discord?
Discord can be acquired by browsing to https://discordapp.com/
. This page allows a Discord account to be created. From there, a user has the option to download Discord or use the webapp version of Discord. The feature set between the two are similar, one is simply web based. Also, the mobile version of Discord can be acquired from the Google Play store or the App Store.
Is this Discord officially affiliated with IRE?
No! Unofficial is the operative word. Although some IRE staff frequent the server, it is not operated by IRE. The unofficial Starmourn Discord server is administrated and moderated by non-IRE volunteers.
Are there any rules on the unofficial Starmourn Discord?
At present, there are unwritten rules that are mostly common sense. We prefer to minimize the amount of moderation that occurs as we do not wish for the server to be restrictive or authoritative. However, spamming inappropriate material, trolling, and discussing illegal activities are some of the things that you should take elsewhere. Generally, if someone is doing something that disrupts the Discord, an administrator or moderator will speak with them to attempt to resolve the issue.
Additionally, we welcome and encourage all discussion related to Starmourn! However, if you have a direct question or idea about the game, you should post it to the official Starmourn forums so that everyone can be involved in the discussion!
Because this is a public Discord server, a few common sense features are in effect. Before you can type in chat, you must have verified your e-mail address through Discord, you must have been registered with Discord for more than 5 minutes, and you must be a member of the server for more than 10 minutes. These are common features that prevent bad actors from creating junk accounts to spam servers. If you've used Discord before, it is likely the first two items won't affect you at all.
How do I join the unofficial Starmourn Discord?
If you already have Discord installed, the invitation link will add the unofficial Starmourn Discord to your server list.

From within Discord, you can also add the server by selecting the plus symbol at the bottom of your existing server list, selecting "Join a Server", inputting H8m7pFV into the field, and selecting the "Join" button.
We look forward to seeing and meeting you on the unofficial Starmourn Discord!
