Purnell is an advanced LFG bot for Discord, allowing for matchmaking within or in between Discord servers.
!lfg <description> <game> <user_count> [create_channel]
!interserver <description> <game> <user_count> [create_channel]
|<description>||The description you want to appear in the body of the request, e.g. the specific activity within the game you wish to matchmake for|
|<game>||The name of the game you wish to matchmake for, it can be the games full name or an abbreviation. Certain games have "Rich Support", meaning that the games image, full title, along with some special flavourtext will be used in the request.|
|<user_count>||The number of users you want in the request, currently this can be between 2 and 20 (inclusive)|
|[create_channel]||True/False, Yes/No or Y/N. Whether to create a voice channel (and in future, text channel) for this request. This can be disabled via the guild dashboard|
!lfg vs !interserver
Purnell currently has 2 main commands, !lfg and !interserver. Both commands create LFG requests, however, !interserver creates an LFG request which is shared with all servers that have opted into lfg requests for the provided game.
Purnell can also be called just using "!lfg" in order to enter the simplified, interactive setup. In this mode, you will be asked a series of questions regarding the request you would like to setup.
Below is a list of features currently existing in Purnell. This list will be modified as more big features make their way into the bot.
- Automatic notifications via DM (or otherwise if disabled) for when your game is ready or if the game is closed.
- Spam prevention through only allowing a user to have 1 open request at a time
- Interserver matchmaking
- Game icons and game specific flavourtext (for supported games only)
- Online portal for configuring settings for your server
- Rich support for games i.e. custom flavourtext, name synonyms, and embed logos
- Interactive LFG request setup
- Scheduled LFG requests
Below is a list of features planned in up and coming releases. They currently have no planned release data, but should hopefully make themselves into Purnell over the coming months.
- User reviewing, and rating based matchmaking
- The ability to launch games directly from an LFG request
- The Purnell Hub - for LFG requests independent of a Discord server
- The ability to attach hidden pieces of information to a request (Game join links/codes etc.)

I, the creator of Purnell, am merely a lowly student. I haven't monetised the Purnell website since I don't believe in selling people's data, nor do I want to ruin the appearance of the site by plastering ugly adverts everywhere.
Sharing Purnell with your friends also helps massively with our quest to become the premier Discord LFG bot.
The best way to contact me is via the Purnell Support Server, where I'm more than happy to provide assistance with bugs, feature requests, and game submissions.
