Well, it's up to whomever gets those roles whether they use Skype or Discord. I personally prefer Skype, but I have both apps, so I can manage it as gm. You're also more likely to not get a role with a chat, though anyone could always be recruited by Grendel.
The events I have planned aren't hugely activity based, if you're thinking of how I had that weird ass group treasure hunt map thing whatever it was in FDL, lol. Join if you want; I'll have to remove roles if more people don't join, anyways.
It was pretty cool. Definitely a neat place to visit, but I still can't see why people would want to live in the middle of it, lol. Personally I think I'd hate to live there. Though, for college, I'll be living like a half hour away from it anyways, lol.
As for LA, I've never left the east coast, so I've never been. I'd probably like to see it at some point, though.
I've been pretty okay. Busy and whatnot, attempting to do things while being busy and being rather unsuccessful with it all, lol. I went to NYC the other weekend though for a class trip, and that was pretty neat.
