With the Coronavirus making normal events basically impossible we are using Discord for the near future.
Use this link to join:
The link should take you right to the room if you have a Discord log in. If you don’t have a Discord log in it should take you to the page to create an account. If you have trouble please let me know.
Once you are in Discord, if you are on a computer, you should have a list on the left with different “rooms” the ones with a little speaker are voice chat, the ones with a ‘#’ are text chat. You can be in one voice and one text at a time. Usually there is a voice and text for each “room” and it is best practice to be in both to not miss out. If you want to go in or out of the Mythic server there is an icon to the far left with our dragon symbol on it you can select. You can also use the little icon on the very far upper left to see a list of friends/private messages. Right clicking on someone’s name will bring up a list of options, one of which is “Message” which you can use to send private messages.
There is also an app for your phone if you want to use that. To see the list with the rooms select the little menu icon in the upper left.
If you need more help and can’t find a good tutorial on google (there are a ton) feel free to message me and I’ll do what I can to help.
As far as costs go, these events will be treated essentially like Firesides, though if the $1 option is chosen the fee is reduced to $0. Normal Payments and prepay are still in affect unless those who prepay wish to change to the $0 option and send an email to MythicUpdates@gmail.com. Running a module or playing NPCs for half will count as NPCing.
Also, we are backdating the events had in Discord so far, if you feel you were there but weren’t in the Voice chat you may want to reach out to either myself, Grant, or MythicUpdates@gmail.com to make sure you are on the appropriate list for “sign-in”.

Current Rules for Adventurers (as of 4/1/2020, these aren’t set in stone and may be changed as they are still being felt out and tested):
“An Adventure On Discord –
A few people have volunteered to run short adventures for small groups of PCs in a tabletop style. Some of the adventures will use rules inspired by the Monster of The Week tabletop game. If you will be PCing on one of the adventures which use this approach, you will first need to assign stats to your character. The stats for next Wednesday’s experiment are as follows –
Cool is how calm and collected you are, especially when acting under pressure.
Tough is how strong and mean you are in a fight.
Charm is how pleasant and persuasive you are.
Sharp is how observant you are.
Weird is how attuned to magic & the supernatural you are.
Before getting started, participating PCs would assign stats to their character by picking one of the Stat Sets below. Don’t worry about these being a permanent assignment for your character, this is very experimental and we may or may not decide to use this approach again. Regardless, you can feel free to change things up if we do use this method in the future.
Stat Set #1 • Charm+2 Cool-1 Sharp+1 Tough+2 Weird-1
Stat Set #2 • Charm-1 Cool+2 Sharp+1 Tough+2 Weird-1

Experienced Adventurers –
For this event, characters who possess more than 300 skill points can apply +1 to a single one of the stats in their chosen set.
Taking Actions –
When a player wants to do something, they tell the runner what their action is. The runner then decides whether or not a roll is needed, and then tells the player which stat applies (e.g., stabbing a goblin might use Tough as the stat, while stabbing a Demon might use Cool instead, and stabbing a Golem might use sharp to find a weak spot). The player then rolls 2 six-sided dice and adds the relevant stat to the total.
Success (10+) – You succeed!
Partial success (6-9) – You succeed, but with a worse outcome, hard choice, or price to pay.
Miss (5-) – Your action fails. But your bad luck won’t last forever. You gain +1 to a future roll of your choice. (If you roll a miss multiple times, you can save up multiple +1’s to use on the same roll if desired).
Rolling Dice on Discord
On occasion, there may be a need for you to roll dice to see if your character can accomplish something. This is done by using dice rolls through the Discord Sidekick bot. Simply type /r followed by a space and then the dice you’d like to roll.
You might use this to represent your character gambling in the Tavern.
Character A: /r 1d6 … they get a 4.
You might be asked by a runner to roll your Cool stat when trying to protect a fellow adventurer from a monster attack.
Character B: /r 2d6 +2 … (3 + 5 ) +2 they get a 10. Success!
You can use other dice as well. d10, d20, etc. Sidekick can deal cards as well using /r deal
