ApocaBot helps you play PbtA games on your discord server. Character sheets, dice roller, and custom move support.
To add ApocaBot to your Discord server, click Add ApocaBot. Once the bot is logged in, type
! in the chat to get started.
ApocaBot is a bot designed to streamline PbtA gameplay on a Discord server by allowing players to create functional in-chat character sheets and deploy their stats for rolls or basic moves. Though it's not intended to fully replace traditional character sheets, ApocaBot lets you focus more on your game and less on referencing the text. ApocaBot currently supports Apocalypse World 2e, Burned Over (AW Hackbook), Dungeon World, Masks, MotW, and Uncharted Worlds.
Althought this project is a labor of love, it's still labor. If you'd like to support ApocaBot, access update info, and have a say in which PbtA games get included next, consider BECOMING A PATRON. Thanks for your support!
Once the bot is logged in, any command beginning with
! will activate ApocaBot. First you'll need to select the PbtA game you want to play, with the command
!setgame followed by the hyphenated game name.
