Okay, so I have recently discovered that 'chat' option here on rpol.  You will all love it.  So here's the tutorial for you:

1. Go to the main menu on

2. Click on the 'Chat' link in the upper right hand corner.

3. Once there you will be in the chatroom #Roleplay - in the box where you enter text type '/join Destiny' - this will bring you to our personal chat room.

4. To change your name so we all know who you are type in '/nick yourcharactersname'.  So for example I will type in '/nick Kale'

5. To make it so you don't have a whole screen for the chat room click on the square that is located at the top right corner of the room screen between the box that says 'Users #' and the box with an 'X'

6. Enjoy!  This will be a much easier way for all of us to communicate.  I recommend that any time you log on to play Firefly:Destiny that you log into our chatroom as well.  Can't wait to see you all there!

Re: Chatting
Okay all, so we are not having to go through the main RPOL chat room and interrupt their conversations all time, one of the other members on rpol was kind enough to set up a way for us to just go straight to the Destiny chat room, so a huge thanks to cruinne.  Here's the link

When you open it it asks for

Your user name:
Your nickname:
Your email address:

All you need to fill in is your nickname, which is the name you use in the game.  See you all there!

USER IRC Commands
User commands


/ignore <nick>
Your client will not display lines from the specified user. This command varies from client to client, for more information on what commands an irc client uses see its help file(s).


/join <#channel>
Joins <#channel>.


/list <#channel> <-min#> <-max#>
Lists title and number of users on a channel.



/me <text>
Displays the nickname, followed by <text>.

For example, when the user "MrWiki" writes "/me is going to go watch TV", it would be seen as "* MrWiki is going to go watch TV" by the channel. The way the output and input of an action may vary from client to client.

It is implemented with the CTCP ACTION command.



/nick <nickname>
Sets your nickname to <nickname>.


/part <#channel> [reason]
Parts <#channel>. You have to be on <channel> to use /part. If no reason is given, a default (usually user-defined) is used.


/query <nickname>
Starts a private chat with the selected user.


/quit [reason]
This will make the server disconnect you from it. At times if a server is laggy you won't disconnect right off the bat, so instead some clients have the /disconnect command which forces the client to disconnect from the server. If no reason is given, a default (usually user-defined) is used.


/whois <nick>
Displays a short information about the given nick.

Opperator IRC Commands
(from Wiki)

Channel operator commands
These commands can only be issued by users with operator or half-op privileges.


/op <nick>
Gives a nick operator status.


/voice <nick>
Voices nick.


/kick <#channel> <nick> [reason]
Removes <nick> from <#channel>. The kicked user can, of course, rejoin, so this is rarely effective in keeping someone out, but it does serve as a warning.


/ban [#channel] <nick!user@hostmask>
Sets a channel ban on the specified mask. This command will only set the ban, you must kick the user afterwards. If the user is not kicked, the ban acts as a targeted channel moderation - that user cannot talk unless s/he is voiced, opped, or half-opped. You can also achieve this command using the /mode command shown below with the +b channel mode.


/topic [#channel] <text>
Sets the current topic to <text>. Only available to ops/halfops when channel mode +t is set; otherwise, anyone can use it. When no text is given, returns the current topic on the channel.


/mode [#channel|nick!ident@host] <+/-> [parameters]
This sets a mode on [#channel], or on the specified user. The required level depends on the modes. Note that you can use it on yourself without any channel modes set on you.

The most common modes are:

Name Type Description
+b [hostmask] Channel Sets a ban on anybody matching [hostmask].
+o [nick] Channel Gives a nick operator status in the channel.
+v [nick] Channel Voices nick.
+h [nick] Channel Gives nick half-operator status.
+m Channel Makes channel moderated (only ops, half-ops and voiced people can speak).
+t Channel Only ops can change the topic.
+i Channel Makes the channel invite-only.
+I [mask] Channel Everybody matching [mask] can join a +i channel without invite.
+p Channel Makes the channel private (you can't /who it if you're not in the channel) (deprecated).
+s Channel Makes the channel secret (it doesn't turn up in /list). Mode +p and +s cannot be used on the same channel.
+l [number] Channel Limits the number of people who can be in the channel to [number].
+k [key] Channel Key-locks the channel. You need to join using "/join #channel [key]".
+e [mask] Channel Makes everybody matching [mask] unbannable.
+i User Makes the user invisible, i.e. nobody can use wildcards to match the nick in a /who or /whois command; they must know the exact nick.
+s User Allows the user to view server notices such as server links/delinks, glines, and notices regarding High-Traffic Mode.
+w User Allows the user to view "wallops", or notices sent between Opers.
+o User Sets the user as an IRC Operator. This mode should not be confused with the channel mode +o, which sets a user as a channel operator.
+x User Obfuscates the user's hostmask so as to make it impossible to find an IP from it.
