HOW TO: Create an SCN Account

Creating a Shadowcasters Network account is really super easy. However, Bobby is tearing through “How To” pages, and why not do one for this as well? Besides, upgrading your life to include an SCN Account deserves way more attention than a line on an FAQ page. Let’s do it!

Step 1: Click “Log In”

In the menu at the top of the screen click “Log In”. This will take you to the login page. However, if you’re reading this page, then presumably you don’t have any login credentials yet. That’s why you will want to go to the next step!

Step 2: Click “Register”

Since you don’t have any login credentials, you’ll need to create some! Click on the “Register” link below the login fields.

Step 3: Enter a Username and Email address

These are the username and email address that will be used to identify you as a user. Please use an email address that you check, since we will use this email address to send you event confirmations, cancellations, and general communications about the Shadowrun Missions events.

Step 4: Check Your Email

Our system will send you a confirmation email. You’ll need to click the link on that email in order to confirm your account creation and reset your password.

Step 5: Reset Your Password

Clicking the link will take you to a page which will prompt you to change your password. This step is required in order to create an account. Note that the system will automatically generate a strong random password for you, but you are free to delete that and create whatever password you wish.

Once you’ve entered your password click the “Reset Password” button.

Step 6: Log In!

Now you can go back and click that good ol’ login button again and enter your brand new username and password. Congratulations! You’re on the site!

For SRM Online Users: Update Account Details

If you’re playing in the Shadowrun Missions Online venue, then there are some additional details we need from you to make connecting with you easier when game time comes. To do this you’ll want to move your mouse to the top right of the screen in the admin toolbar where your Username is located. This will activate a small dropdown menu where you will want to click on “Edit My Profile”.

Once there you will need to update one or two items depending on whether you intend to GM games for Shadowrun Missions Online.

  • Players and GMs

    Since our primary means of connecting and communicating for Shadowrun Missions Online is through the Shadowcasters Network Discord server, we will need your Discord username. This can be entered in the “Contact Info” section of the Profile Page.

  • GMs Only

    We require that our Gamemasters be official Catalyst Demo Team agents. In order for us to verify that, we need to have your first and last name so that we can check it against the CDT Agent database.
