Welcome to the IRC Roleplaying Forum. Many have expressed interest in playing over their Instant Messagers. So why not have a base to work from?
You can use this forum to store your character information, and other needed data to better play your games. The GM can even request his/her own sub-forum that is password protected so that nosey players won't be able to peek at top secret adventure information!
Also, by storing your information here, you'll be able to access it from anywhere in the world where you can access a computer!
So, have fun with it! If you would like to request a sub-forum, locked or public, simply PM your request to me.
