We're switching the guild recommended VoIP solution from Mumble to Discord.
Why? Simply put it's a more modern app with more features and still under active development. It's a little bit like if you took Mumble, combine it with Skype, and then threw in some good UI design.
Some of my favourite differences:
The only real downside is that you need to create a Discord account, but all that is required is a username, email, and password.
Start by heading over to the Discord website to create an account and download the app. You can use whatever username you like, you can set a nickname on every server.
Once Discord is installed you can connect to our server using the following link: https://discord.gg/9DKjb2D
This will connect you to the Kestrel Minority server and give you access to the public text and voice channels. They're only public in that anyone connecting can access them, an invite link like the one above is required to connect.
After I or another one of the officers have set your role based on member rank you'll gain access to the member only channels as well as the ability to see the chat history of all channels.
After connecting I recommend you set your server nickname to be the same as your username here on the site, if your discord username isn't already the same that is.

Should you need it there are many other guides in the help center.
Thanks everyone for making this happen, for the help and support during the time of collecting frameworks and credits. It took some effort and time for an RP focused guild as small as us, but we did it.
The Talon now is fully opened OOC.
I made a fast calculation. All together we collected about 700 mill credits to make this happen from the time somewhere two years ago, when we started to collect credits for the Talon itself.
I would like to say special thanks to Corvinius and Leibe, who believed in making it happen, and helped a lot during the long time, to Seth Altair, Rantiria and Mistaahh who kept us going, and to Hawk who joined us relatively recently, still put in IC and OOC support to get to the final part.
