Tavrn, a work in progress, wants to create a unique community for gamers and independent content creators (such as developers, streamers, artists) with more freedom than other platforms.
We want to bring together the best community and social features from Twitter & Tweetdeck, Steam, Twitch, and Discord into a connected experience with a focus on sharing media content, powered by Mixtape.moe and Sapphire. These tools are designed to let gamers find the best independent content, post their achievements, share to build a following, and make friends.
We do this using open standards providing maximum potential for integration with other services. We also provide a large amount of our custom software, we have developed, as open source, so any one can improve it or run their own copy with their own changes.
We wish to stay away from funding ourselves via advertising and prefer to fund ourselves by user payments, so it's the user we're serving not turning the user into a product.
We have a grand vision for Tavrn, and we hope you'll join us as we go towards it.

Tap is an official web app, based on Slack and Discord for Tavrn and Tavrn Messenger. It's the best way to use Tavrn! Tavrn Tap works in the browser on desktops and mobile devices. Check out the announcement for more information.
This is a remade open-source version of alpha.app.net, the web microblogging client for App.net. Tavrn uses an API that is completely compatible with App.net. Beta allows us to access and use Tavrn from the web without much hassle. (Beta is the name of the client, not what version it is)
Although Tavrn uses a from scratch backend API based on App.net, we made Tavrn capable of communicating with Mastodon clients! Any client (iOS, Android, Windows, mac, Linux, etc) that can connect to a Mastodon instance can connect to Tavrn.gg by putting
Mastodon.Tavrn.gg as the instance. To sign in, you will need a Sapphire Account so make sure you are signed up first.
