The Spearbreakers OOC IRC chat is up. I'll include a step by step intro if there are any of you who do not use IRC.

I first of all downloaded Chatzilla, a free extension for Mozilla Firefox.

Then, once it is installed and working, these steps need to be taken in order to join.

Go Chatzilla -> Preferences.
Click on the Global Settings category.
Click on the Startup tab. Scroll down that tab until you find Locations. Click Add. When the dialog box pops up, enter "irc://irc.foonetic.net/SpearbreakersOOC" without the quotation marks. Click OK, and exit Chatzilla. Then, open it again. You should automatically connect to the channel #SpearbreakersOOC. If I remember right, there should be a bot called ChanServ there keeping the channel open and unused. I'm in there at the moment.

By the way, you may wish to give yourself a nick. That's as easy as typing /nick.
Now, that's it all set up. :P

Get chattin' folks!




Actually, Dorf!Splint is Ecstatic. He's getting very pleased with the constant flow of 'Pleased to have a mandate deadline met lately'.

@Splint, ssj:

Try looking on Wikipedia's IRC page under 'client software'. They have a list of programs for each OS.

DISCLAIMER: I have no bloody clue what I'm talking about.

I don't know, as most of my IRC knowledge is around Chatzilla. There is mIRC or Mibbit though. Much the same rules apply.

mIRC is a standalone client, and Mibbit is a web based IRC client.

Oh, I made the channel so we could have a Spearbreakers only channel. It alleviates Mr Frog's pet peeve, and allows the rest of us to derail the thread without derailing the thread.



Also, I'm going to have to apologise about the quality of my updates. My internet is being atrocious at the only times I can use it, resulting in speeds of 4 - 8 kbps. D: This generally means few if any images because I can barely load any pages.



Mitch has claimed a goblin cap that I cut down. She's now on the move again, so she's likely to succeed his mood. It's going to be a mason's item, she's a mason and the first two items are gypsum.



No-Hair gave birth to a baby, who I christened Some-Hair (he has short hair). Seconds later, Geshud Gusiliteb, one of the Alpacas, gave birth too. Mitchewawa celebrates by announcing she has all she needs and she is beginning work on her mysterious construction.



Mitchewawa has completed her artifact. Once again, apologies about the lack of images, I can't even load Facebook. :/

Presenting Lomoth Cuthroz, the Tomb of Fangs, a gypsum scepter worth 15600U.

This is a gypsum scepter. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It is encrusted with round citrine cabochons, decorated with black-cap and encircled with bands of oval gypsum cabochons, bismuth and sheep leather. This object is adorned with hanging rings of citrine.
On the item is an image of Sideclapped the raw adamantine earring in gypsum.
On the item is an image of Sideclapped the raw adamantine earring in sheep bone.
On the item is an image of Sideclapped the raw adamantine earring in goblin-cap.

Mitchewawa was very pleased. As was Splint. Splint demanded three more backpacks on top of his previous order of 3 cabinets. Also, can I replace Splint as Manager? He never gets around to anything, by virtue of his duties as a War-Noble.



Pokonic appears to be stuck. He's sitting outside, admiring the pools of mountain barbarian blood that rains from the sky, surrounded on most sides by bloody trees. Maybe he's meditating. I hope something doesn't happen that leaves him stranded... :/

Haven't read all the stuff that's been posted since last night, but I do want to say that I'm not capable of installing anything on this computer - it's not mine, and I don't have administrative access with which I can install anything. :-\   But we've been using tinychat.com/DwarfFortress for our chatting... and it's free, and doesn't require any installation. Is there a problem with using it?

I'm going to be making a story post later this morning, to explain how Vanya and Urist escaped the ring of gorlaks. :)

I have discovered a hole above Softa and Ashsaber's rooms, where they howl incessantly. Is this a... execution pit? To throw down prisoners to be consumed by the spawn within?

Wow.



tinychat.com/dwarffortress is general DF chat, plus I thought IRC was more lightweight and quicker anyway. Some of us's internet connection (me) is too slow at the only times they can get on to go on Tinychat. And, there's Mibbit, which is an online IRC client anyway.

You can if you like. His office must remain his though for obvious reasons.

"It's not a stupid order, we have a shitload of bedrooms lacking cabinets damn it! And no, those were the supply chutes from when they were first quarentined. Every one of the other cells has one too."

The tinychat was actually set up by Corai so those of us it concerned could plan something. Now it varies wildly from Fischer jokes, story ideas, ponies, random types of music and mention of mugs.

The emus themselves are almost a joke... Not in terms of fighting capability, but in how they've been used for everything but what they were meant for... and we STILL don't have nest boxes for them.

An Eris related thing, what I imagine the soldiers they DO have look like. More than likely stupidly off, but I don't care, just enjoy the damn picture.

Motto means "The the shadows we strike." Well... Something to that effect anyway.
