The Melbourne Netrunner Discord is available at https://discord.gg/cVCYqEwYbG
We are a small group in the most isolated city in Australia. We are very self-contained and don’t wind up playing with other groups very often. We are a community of about 18-20 players and our big events (Game Night Kit meetups & local championships) typically are 12-15 players.

We also form part of “Readoxershot” which is a group that includes us, Reading, and Aldershot – those keen on more tournaments can usually get lifts to there.
