    A Mass Effect RP. It's generally a good idea to have some knowledge of it. It's set in the small spaceport town Freedom Falls on the lawless Terminus world Aite, where everyone's expected to fend themselves against sly corporations and militias. See http://wiki.aiterp.net/ for more information.

    #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.

    #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.
