So Crenomaster suggested a WombatRPGs IRC channel. I was wondering how many of you would be interested in using it if such a thing existed?

For those unaware, IRC is basically just a chatroom. The protocol's been around forever, but it's pretty capable. There are web-based clients as well as clients for Android, iPhone, and plain desktop ones. Plugins also exist for Meebo and Pidgin. I'd post tutorials to get connected as well as adding a web client portal.

If my computer's plugged in, I'm on IRC. No exceptions. So a WRPGs IRC channel would be the perfect hangout for me. Just don't expect me to contribute much to the conversation, or use the name FTrapper.

Hm, seems like there's certainly enough interest then... Does anyone have any particular networks they prefer? Otherwise I'll probably make the channel on dynastynet or espernet. Let me know.

Out of the two you put up, espernet because some channels I've drop in on use it I believe (and esper sounds cooler than dynasty. That's mostly why out of the two...)

Try to at least contribute some to the conversation if someone starts talking about RPG Maker 2000 or Secret of The Stars (PLUM-PLUMS'S GOOD!)

I suggest BadnikNET because it has a large overall emphasis on gaming.

Okay, it looks like BadnikNET uses the same bot packages I'm used to, so I figured I'd go ahead and register there.

We are now #wombatrpgs@irc.badnik.net. Feel free to drop by.

For those of you looking for a quick setup, go here:
http://cbe001.chat.mibbit.com/
Under server list, scroll to BadnikNET. For channel, enter #wombatrpgs. Then hit Join and you should be set. I'll post setup information for either mIRC or Pidgin later if you're looking for a non-webbased client, but honestly, IRC isn't that hard to use and you should have no problem getting set up. I'll also make an announcement topic shortly.
