If you want to try and hook up with other booters online this is the place for it. Be they one night, one off, long running campaign, leagues, IRC's, SKYPE, gaming, non-gaming, conversation, or solving the worlds problems. This is the place for getting together with booters online and has various stickies for online services ID and users names.
So there was a D&D campaign going on in chat for a short while. Wihzerd ran it. Ended last night though. It was a good run, hats off to the Wihz for making political intrigue work its way into a game that literally started by him telling people to roll initiative while they were in the middle of a non D&D conversation. i liked my Cleric too, wish I had more time to develop him.
/me would like to see more RPGs on the IRC channel and/or on their own channel so as to not disturb chat
/me forgot he is posting on the forums instead of on IRC.

I might jump on the channel later tonight to test this out.
It's a bit strange. I fired up one while you were idle. PM and /msg work for private dice rolls. /notice appears to write something, but all the other users were off in zombie land so I could not confirm.
There's also a join delay built in to the IRC server, so it takes a minute before the bot actually joins after it is started up. -- TAZ
I've fooled around with IRC a bit - honestly, I'd rather have an AIM Blast Group or similar functionality. It's a glossier interface (pleasing to the eye) and it's a lot easier to get other people involved than having to get them into IRC. I've got AIM set up for another forum I'm involved with as a blast group, and it works out very well at doing what group live chat does best - making confusing mishmashes of five simultaneous conversations. :/
