My online D&D group uses a Discord server for our games.  The voice chat is
usually more reliable than what's available on the virtual tabletops.
Also, the DM will post pictures of, say, the monster we're encountering or
the non-player character we're interacting with, so that we might visualize
them more easily. Between games, the server is used by the DM to inform the
group of any changes to the game mechanics that he might be making, both in
chat and as attached PDF files.  We also use it to socialize, keep abreast
