Basically, Discord is like playbypost, you contribute when you have time (you can tell the DM (me) things like "If my turn comes up before I have a chance to post, I'm going to attack the goblin.")..
Dice rolling and everything happens in the Discord (I have a dice bot already set up in a discord server I have)
