Discord is a free text and voice chat medium. The application can be used from within the web browser or downloaded, with the link for both being on the homepage of its website: discordapp.com. It is available for several operating systems, and can be accessed via a web-app on certain browsers.
Note: The rules of the Hypothetical Hurricanes Wiki Discord server are the same as the chat guidelines.
