Stone Soup has an active community with a lot of places for discussions: In ##crawl on Freenode IRC, in the Tavern, and on other popular web forums such as Bay 12 Games, Something Awful, and the DCSS subreddit. The crawl-ref-discuss mailing-list at SourceForge is sometimes used for development communication and accessible to everyone.

In the past, the GameSpite forum, and the usenet group rec.games.roguelike.misc also were used for discussion, but they have since fallen out of use.

Everything you find on this website will get you started playing or even actively helping development of the game. Check the links to the right and feel free!
