    Incase you don't know about it yet:

    King Arthur's Gold IRC Channel

    Here you can talk about pretty much anything--it doesn't necessarily have to be related to KAG--just remember to be nice. Seriously, get on there already; don't be afraid to ask questions, organise games with each other, what have you!

    Channel: #THD
    Server: Quakenet (server info: irc.quakenet.org:6667)

    For those who have never used irc before the best way to hop on and chat is following this link:
    http://irc.lc/quakenet/thd/peasant@@

    All you need to do is enter a nickname (and if it doesn't work try using a different nickname).

    Alternatively download an irc client such as AdiIRC, HexChat, XChat2, Chatzilla, pidgin, etc.

    I personally use XChat2. Below is a quick guide to it (that can be addapted to most other IRC programs):

    As soon as you open the program you will be prompted with this window.
    networklist.PNG
    Fill in the details, "Nick Name" is the one everyone will see you as. Make sure to put in a second choice just incase the first one is taken.

    Next you want to choose the network to connect to. Our IRC channel is located on quakenet, so scroll down until you find Quakenet, select it then click Connect.

    Once you have connected to the server this window will pop up.

    Click on join this channel then enter the channel details in the box as shown above. The channel name is #THD don't forget the #. Click on Ok and your should be set!

    Your window should now look like this and you can start chatting.
    channel.PNG
    Remember to right click the channel name in the left-pane and add it to favourites - this way it'll automatically join the channel when you connect.

    MM & Geti hop on every now and then (as well as some of the other KAG Staff members) and of course many names you'll know from the forums hang out there too (and, ofc, several server admins idle there if needed--just type their name to get their attention).

    Hope to see you there, keen for some KAG games with fellow forumites. :D

    Its been there for ages but I only got added it to that menu the other day. It used to show up in the mostly-ignored 'extras' section at the bottom of the forum list (which I have now removed).

    What you miss if you dont hang out in IRC:

    • Exclusive info pertaining to the game and its upcoming features from MM and Geti.
    • Instant access to help from other KAG players.
    • A place to strategize.
    • Lots of lulz like this:

    How do you make an IRC Room?!

    /join #something , after that you shall be given @ (if the room was empty before). After there are around 5-6 people in the room after 2 hours you will be able to summon Q to secure your adminship (Don't leave without it).

    Then with the help from http://www.quakenet.org/help/general you can configure the IRC room as you wish.
