Questions

How do I get this bot on my server?

Why does it say [BOT] next to my npcs and aliases?

  • I use webhooks to display chat with unique avatars and messages, so it's actually the bot saying it, not you.

Will you join my game?

  • Maybe? I definitely won't DM it!

Can I host it myself?

  • For now, no. I'm still actively developing it, but there's a decent chance I'll open source it when I'm done, and then you can do whatever you want.

Can I pay you for this?

  • In lieu of a donation to me, maybe join or start a D&D game from our LFG section, and enjoy yourself!

I found a bug!

  • Please let us know on our Discord about the bug with as much info as you can about how it happened and how to replicate it.
