I have set up an IRC channel for The Elven Alliance. For those
who don't know what IRC is, it's basically a series of chatrooms
(channels) in which you can talk about any number of things.
To use IRC, you will need a client. There are a number of these
available on the net, and the one I use is called mIRC. Installation is quite easy and any
problems can probably solved on the mIRC site above. Here is
a quick post by Blaat on how to connect to The Elven Alliance
Connect to the server by typing: /server main.acidchat.net
in the window that opens on start up.
"After this you will have to choose a nickname. A nickname
isn't 'yours' in that you don't need to register for one (although
you can if you want, using the /nickserv command). You can just
change nicknames without trouble (to change your nick name, type
/nick and then the name you want to use). When you have it all
ready you can connect to an IRC server. You'll get some text
from the server and a text box. This box is where you type your
text, but IRC also offers a lot of commands that you can use
to do other interesting stuff.
One such command is the /join command (IRC commands always
start with a slash) which lets you join a channel." To join
the Elven Alliance channel type: /join #elvenalliance and you're

I strongly encourage you to use the chatroom, especially
for idle chatter and to set up online games. And even if there
isn't anyone active in the channel, I ask that you leave the
channel open so that you're around for when somebody does come
by. This attempt to make your lives just a little easier can
only succeed with your participation.
