CortexPal2000: Discord Bot for Cortex Prime

Screen shot of the CortexPal2000 Discord bot.

Use CortexPal2000 to roll dice pools and track common game information in Discord.

  • Rolls dice pools from text commands. Shows results grouped by die size, with hitches highlighted.
  • Tracks common game information such as plot points, XP, complications, assets, doom pools, and crisis pools.
  • On demand, CortexPal2000 can pin a message to a channel showing all of your game information, and will keep that pinned message up to date as information changes.
  • Keeps game information separated by channel, so you can run games in multiple channels without interference.

Invite CortexPal2000 to your Discord server here. After the bot joins your server, type "/help" to get a list of the commands the bot understands, and type "/help" plus the name of a command to get information about that command.

Take note that if a channel does not receive CortexPal2000 commands for 30 days, the bot will consider the game in that channel to be inactive and will erase the game data in that channel. The bot will send a message summarizing the game data before clearing it.
