GhostlyPink: And all i did was have my discord on and seen the announcement within hours.
GhostlyPink: So... yeah might be good to have Discord.
—GhostlyPink advocates Discord
The name was a reference to its provider Eris, the goddess of discord, who wanted to provide her subjects with a means of obtaining information and announcements without physically being on the surface of the planet. Discord supported text-based messages as well as video and audio transmissions both public and private.
The Edicts of Eris and other policies governing Dragonhollow extended to Discord. When a resident was executed and their soul permanently enslaved by Grim, they also lost access to the FTL communications.
The network proved extremely popular, first supplementing the Forum and then all but completely replacing it by the Sixth Era as the preferred method of communication. Before the Seventh Era, the last of the Priesthood holdouts Tox finally began using Discord and it became their sole platform for the exchange of data.
Nearly all active members of the public eventually joined the network.
When the Eriid meteor shower hit Dragonhollow on 7E:59, the Hegemon Retro used Discord to overcome a widespread communications blackout and send residents a navigational course that would allow them to safely reach the planet through the hail of meteors.
After the planet was swallowed by Nyx on 7E:120, the survivors who escaped the apocalypse kept in touch using Discord. HyperSilence would later use the network to announce invitations to the colony on Halfast.
The following is an incomplete list of those residents who used Discord.
Behind the Scenes
|"It's the only communication software officially endorsed by Eris, the goddess of discord, who sometimes calls herself Acey."|
Discord is a free text and voice chat application. Acey established a server for Dragonhollow players on January 24, 2017 as a replacement for Raidcall, Teamspeak, and Skype which had been used in the past.
