IRC

We've setup a small and cozy chat channel for all members and friends of the order. There's also a fireplace and a Dragon that upkeeps it.

Sounds good?

Well here's how it works:

For the IRC-savvy

  • Server: irc.netstable.net
  • Port: 6667 (default port)
  • Channel: #oor

See below for info on registering your nickname.

For the IRC-beginner

Click on the 'Chat' link at the top

This will open an IRC chat client written in Java. You can leave this window open while you play or work :)
All you need is a browser and the Java plugin which can be obtained here: http://www.java.com/.

If you don't feel like installing a browser plugin or prefer a standalone application here are some alternative options:

Nickname registration

The server that hosts the #oor channel enforces nickname registration by renaming you to guest after some time.

Registering yourself (you only need to do this one time)

/nick desired_username
/msg nickserv register PASSWORD EMAIL

Identify yourself after login (this is the bit you need to repeat after each login.
It can be automated but the actual steps to achieve this depend a lot on the IRC client you use)

/nick desired_username
/msg identify PASSWORD

Some basic IRC commands

/join OR /j : joins a channel
Example: /join #oor

/part OR /p : leaves the current channel
Example: /part

/nick : changes your nickname
Example: /nick Beholder

/msg : sends a private message to someone
Example: /msg username Hello!

the client guesses the 'username' by pressing the first few characters of a nickname, followed by the Tab key.

Simply type them into the Input field at your IRC client of choice.
