Hey, did a few searches for rp groups online. Came across yours on a few hits. I'm based in Faroe Islands.

I've done a fair bit of larp but have to travel to Denmark or Scotland to meet up with anyone. The Faroe islands is pretty much just all year farming islands. So live here on a farm. Thatched roof built next to a hill. Like Hobbiton from LOTR.

Welcome Orion. I wish the forums were more active for you, but it is what it is. However, we are all fairly active on our own Discord server. See it here: https://discord.gg/6s8eaBj

Also, we have a library! Look here for character profiles, location descriptions, etc here: https://paxlib.myfnmc.com

Look forward to RP'ing with you!

Yes. As the local librarian of this community, these new-fangled contraptions of instant messaging are a conundrum. They ruined forum based RPs!

What... What is this AOL Instant-Nevermind. Get out of here you stupid cricket!

Anyways, we are working are getting the forums up to speed again. Though there will generally be someone online on the Discord server as DarkPsycho mentioned. Welcomed to Pax!

Is it then best to use download or log into discord instead of the forums? Do you use hangouts and skype also as already have those?

We had Skype, but we didn't have a good experience with it as a group, so we first moved to slack (another chat service), and then to Discord. Discord is basically a chatroom where we all hang out and RP together in real time. We have more than a few people in Europe, so someone should be online at the same time you are. I'd recommend it, but it's not necessary, we are working to use the forums more.

Well, we used to have slack as well. But we all agreed that discord was the lightest thing for the computers- one of the members was mostly on mobile and skype was a massive battery drain.

but summing up, discord is like...teamspeak, but with chat. Yeah, that's a way to describe it, but you can have private servers for free, or a contact list to private message people, and so on.

Hey hey. Sorry for the slow response. I'm Bolt. I tend to not show up the most quickly on the forums due to some weird glitch that requires me to change browsers.

ANYWAYS, I'm one of the people who sets things up on the Discord server, and can help show you the ropes of the place. Glad to have you.
My life is just a long series of "it seemed like a good idea at the time" strung together.
