This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

If you're using FireFox a nice alternative is the ChatZilla addon. It's quite user friendly.

Try pIRCh 98. I think it's quite a bit smaller. I had no trouble using it over dialup way back when... :D

Conversation today:-

"You see before you two doors. Through one door is ONE MILLION GP. Through the other is INSTANT FLAMING DEATH. You don't know which is which. Choose a door."

"My players have learned GURPS, it's just taken them three years. Three years of "wait... what dice are we using?""

"I was reading that Ron Edwards flap on rpg.net and rpgsite today, and was musing that if not for Pundit, I would never have heard of Ron Edwards at all"

"one of my players had a mage whose characteristic was mainly that he had a hood that always left his face in shadow...  
so, one time we encountered some cultists...  so we captured a cultist, and he wouldn't tell us where his temple was, and we'd been blundering around in the snow for about an hour realtime
so, the faceless mage says
and, again, fake deep andrew eldritch voice
"i bend him over."
"and i give him a hot beef injection"

"is gygaxian naturism how the fighters on 1e modules never wear pants?"

"i have to admit that i was really sort of surprised that the birth of D&D wasn't even partially out of a primal sea of zeppelin and bong hits"
GAMERS rpg

One of the great virtues of the dice is that they do not come with boxed text.

"Don't let yourself get too worried about all this talk about roleplaying [...] the ultimate object of all this is for everyone to have fun, not to recreate some form of high dramatic art." - Dungeoneer

The "hot beef injection" story is a classic. I predict that's going to become a new running gag around our gaming table.
