IRC
Spring-Vale RPG has an irc channel with a server echo, meaning messages can be exchanged between irc & the server.
Server rules apply on irc.
Our channel is on the irc.tl network.

An irc client is required to join our irc channel.

Otherwise you need to download a free client:

You can also use our Web IRC Client (powered by Mibbit).
