Just a thought from a game I watched/rule-look-upped tonight. I was remote, we talked (and I watched) via cam and voice through Discord.

Would a Discord "server" for Epic:Armageddon be of use?

Free to use, real-time multiple-channel group text or voice chat with a text archive, separate voice chat rooms for games (or arguing about TLOS versus infinite height, or whether JimmyZimms really is Lion'el Jonson or not, whatever you like). I can set it up with no effort and give/share mod powers to any reputable smartypants from here/ERC/EUK/whatever if that's beneficial.

I've never used Slack (first I heard of it was about the Vassal/online games thread) so I don't know how much that makes this a duplication of effort, and I simply don't go on Facebook, but I'm often on voice in Discord and it seems like a nice group-centric thing to get people more channels of communication to get more involved in playing more Epic.

Playing more is a good thing, isn't it?

I am surprised myself there has never been a IRC channel.

Not interested in Discord: it is popular nowadays but doesn't really have any decent advantages and has several drawbacks

There is an Epic Discord already it was advertised on /tg/. Most of it is hobby chat no real games being organized a lot on this forum use it already.

If it was advertised on /tg/ I have to wonder who moderates it.

IRC channel.

There was! once! in … er 2011 or so for a couple of months. There were dozens of us, dozens! or … well 3 or 4 of us. (was during a period when taccom had some server problems)

hm actually, maybe it was on TS/vent not IRC. really can't remember.

Current optimum online hobby experience for me is playing warhammer total war multiplayer campaign with voice and hobbying away in the other player turns.

You keep telling me about that game. I'm going to have to install a VM and run that soon.
