Stone Soup has an active community with a lot of places for discussions: In the Tavern, and on other popular web forums such as Bay 12 Games, Something Awful, and the DCSS subreddit, in several discords including the #dcss channel in the roguelikes discord, and in #crawl on Libera.chat IRC (or, join via matrix). Development discussion happens on github and in the #crawl-dev channel also on libera.chat.

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. The crawl-ref-discuss mailing-list at SourceForge has in the past been used for development communication.

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!
