    Is Discord just a chat room or does it have video like the Zoom does?

    It has chat channels, voice and video :) I personally have not tried their video but I have used voice, and also it has the ability to stream from someone's computer to all watch a movie or watch someone playing a game and voice chat with that as well. If you're new to discord you can make an account and I'll walk you through it on the official tower discord ahead of this event :)

    I actually used Discord video last night to chat with someone, and it worked pretty well! I haven't used it with multiple individuals, but I believe @Jaryd Kosari has much more experience with Discord ins and outs, and would be able to guide us :)

    Omg! This is actually a better option for those of us who are ND and find that traditional Anni is difficult to interact with. :D

    For people interested - I am putting together a "How to use Discord for beginners" guide which will be publicly available before this event occurs. You're also welcome to PM me here (or join Discord and ask for help there) and I'll walk you through anything you have questions about.

    Discord is my jam. It's where I feel happiest / most comfortable, and thus where you will get to know me best, so I'm all about getting people set up there. ;)
