Lads, if you want to play Blitz games [via TCP/IP] and chat about the game, join to the Dominions IRC channel. It is on the gamesurge network, and the room name is #dominions

See you there!

Does anyone have or want to create a newbie page for this? Does the wiki have one? Something I can link to.

Something like this (which is really sloppy and needs redone)

A very short guide that probably isn't enough:

IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, is complicated business. You need many things, and all must work right. First, you need a client. There are many. mIRC is one. I don't know any others. Some browsers have clients embedded into them; at least Opera has this functionality. I didn't now this when I started using IRC.

You need to set up few things before you can connect. These include choosing a nick. Nick is a nickname, the name you use. I use Endoperez. Using the name you have here works. Your name might already be in use. Then you just have to choose another. Or add a ' after your name, like this Endoperez'.

To connect to #dominions channel, you must first find a proper server. On mIRC at least, once you know that you want to find a Gamesurge server ( irc.gamesurge.net), things are pretty simple. From a drop-down list, choose Gamesurge. If everything works, you are then asked what channel you want to go to. Type in #dominions and press enter. Then you should be on the channel, and see all kinds of strange discussion.

Yeah... I found it quite easy once I downloaded the IRC client. I use Colloquy on a Mac. Very easy.

Try this link....
IRC://irc.gamesurge.net:6667

If it doesnt work in your browser then it should tell you why. Often it just means that you need to get an IRC program and in the options tell your bowser where its at.

If you don't want to download any clients, config them etc. you can also use the java based webchat of gamesurge.

http://gamesurge.net/chat/

First you simply load the page. [It will try to install the java application, so you must let the site to install it] You will find yourself in the "welcome" channel.
You can change your name in the "change nick to" window. [bottom right corner in the java window]
After this you simply type in /join #dominions -> this will connect you to the dominions IRC channel.
This is a very simple and easy way to use IRC.

mIRC is a commercial product ($30). I recommend instead Trillian. It can be found here:
