Which version of Discord is right for me?

1. Currently Discord offers multiple platforms to run on. These include:

2. I don't want to download any software.

You may use your web browser. However, features available in the APP will be limited in the browser version.
  • Voice - you must allow the browser applet to access your microphone
  • Push to Talk - only available if browser tab has focus, default is open mic
  • Favorite or Else - If you want to find the server again quickly in your browser, save it to favorites (bookmark)

3. I want to use the APP.

You can download the application (APP) from the links listed in item 1.
  • Download and save the executable file
  • Go to where you saved the executable file and install it.
  • Create a user account with Discord - this is only for you to contact support if it is needed and to verify as a user.

Discord will send a verification email to the mailbox you used to sign-up with. Be sure you check your spam box if you do not see it in your normal inbox.

Connecting to The Alliance Discord server

1. Nickname
  • Nickname must match your Alliance website user name
  • If not a member of the kinship website, use the name you have marked as main in your player note.
  • If not a member of the kinship, follow your own kinship's guidelines.

2. Using your web-browser:

To connect using your web-browser copy this link and paste it in another tab of your browser; https://discord.gg/n4RHUwj

Link will kick you off the server if you do not request a role to be assigned to you once you close your browser/APP. What this means; you will need to re-copy the link from here to connect to the server again.

To become a permanent member of the server, you will need to be a member of The Alliance (any rank), and request either in Discord or in-game for an officer or above to promote you to a server member.

3. Using the APP:
  • Start the App
  • On the far left, below Direct Messages, you will see + enclosed in a circle, click it
  • In the pop-up window click Join a Server
  • Paste the following link: https://discord.gg/n4RHUwj

Link will kick you off the server if you do not request a role to be assigned to you once you close your browser/APP. What this means; you will need to re-copy the link from here to connect to the server again.

4. Now what?:
  • You will now see the server window in 3 sections; Type/Voice Channels - Type chat - Members
  • You will only be able to participate in type chat until you place yourself into a Voice channel
  • All users will have access to the Public Lounge voice room. Click on the title of the channel to enter it.
  • Kin members will have access given to them to enter Kin-only rooms once they request Discord membership.

-NOTE: Connecting to the Discord server will only grant you the privilege to participate in type chat. To use voice chat you must enter a Voice Channel. You also will not hear Voice conversations if you have not joined the Voice Channel of others in that channel.
