Some of our Communities
- 6#quasishraa is the OOC hub for Avishraa, a long-standing and much-revised setting created by Shyriath, originally as background for a character, but now as a worldbuilding project and RP setting in its own right. There are several playable species, all of whom are dragonlike: the takmar, who are the most advanced and numerous; the Chosen, a variety of takmar with small stature but the inborn ability to use magic; and the xtauh, smaller still and less cohesive, but more flexible in habitat.
- 5Shadowlamb is a full featured mmorpg. You can #(j)oin parties, solve #(qu)ests, runecraft your items and learn magic spells. It combines multiple irc networks into a single gameworld, and thus is unique among all irc games.
- 3Iron Secrets is a vanilla style Werewolf: the Apocalypse game set in the American Southwest, centered around a caern located in the Petrified Forest National Park. It is focused around the mystical and mysterious sides of the game, with a good serving of personal horror. The game is mostly Salon-style play, supplemented by guided adventures.
- 22Fort City is a multi-genre free form RP channel that takes place in the mysterious city of Enoch where characters may explore any of its six period-themed wards (Boreas, modern/future; Eurus, Medieval/fantasy; Notus, Antiquity; Zephyrus, pre-industrial to industrial age/steampunk; Skiron, mix, on the coast; Anemoi, the heart of the city) and the vast wilderness outside its walls. Fort City is compatible with most settings and channels.
- 13#imarel is the latest incarnation of an online game that has been running for over twenty years between AOL and IRC, based on the World of Imarel, by T.A. Saunders. The constantly growing, well-documented setting offers players the ability to effect the future of the world through both scheduled storyteller events and 'random encounters' that occur spontaneously during main channel gaming.
- 9This is a meta-channel for freeform roleplays, serving as a focused subcommunity for #rpg-hub. If you're looking to advertise or play freeform games, remember to join #rpg-hub as well!
- 19A year ago, the skies of Nekenalos abruptly changed. The weather struggled. Two moons came and went. Now the planet orbits a new sun - Sol - and visitors are coming.
