At Lake Valor, we have a lovely way for you to interact with members of the community! We have our very own chatroom for members to hang out! It has many channels for different discussions such as general, art-related or role-play related. At first, getting connected may seem confusing but it's fairly simple as I will demonstrate below! The following steps are for people with a Discord account. If you don't have one, it will prompt you to create one which is fairly easy as well. (Step 3) Step 1 - After logging into your Lake Valor forum account, go to the side bar under your avatar and click 'Discord' and 'Join Chatroom'. Spoiler: Step 1 Picture Step 2 - You will be taken to a 'Join our Discord Server Page.' Click the blue, clickable text. Spoiler: Step 2 Picture Step 3 - This leads you to the Discord website where you will be prompted to "Accept your invite." Hit accept. Now, if you already have a Discord account, log into it. If you do not have one, enter a username and create a password and add an email account for verification. Spoiler: Step 3 Picture Step 4 - Now you must link your Lake Valor forum account with your Discord one to start chatting! Head over to your 'External Accounts Control Panel' by clicking this link. Then, scroll down to the 'Discord Integration' option and hit 'Associate Discord Account.'
