There will be a post-game chat with the puppetmasters behind the recently concluded Sharp promotional game, dubbed “Legend of the Sacred Urns.” It will be tonight at 9:00 pm EST in #steinitz on chat-solutions. For those of you without a chat client, you can access the channel here.
If you followed along, now’s your chance to talk directly to those who were behind this well-done ARG promotion.
As part of the ongoing server upgrades, etc. going on around here, we’ve gotten the ARGN IRC chat applet back on line. This is a browser-based IRC client that can be used in lieu of installing a dedicated IRC application on your computer, similar to the applet over at unfiction. This latest version enables connection to multiple channels at once, among other cool things.
So, if you’ve never stopped in to say hello, now’s a perfect time. Simply let the applet load, choose a channel and a nickname and hit the connect button. There’s usually something happening in #unfiction (the general ARG chat area), but there are also dedicated channels for the various games going on.
The Alternate Reality Gaming Network will host a live call-in phone chat with some of the voice actors featured in the Ilovebees Alternate Reality game, hosted by the kind folks at AccuTalk. It will be open to callers both in the US and abroad, and will take place this Saturday, November 13th at 12:00 noon Pacific/3:00pm Eastern. On hand will be Kristen Rutherford (Durga/Melissa/Sleeping Princess) and more from the cast (stay tuned).
This phone chat will work very much like a call-in radio show, as callers will have a chance to talk directly to the actors, and ask whatever questions they like. Watch this unfiction thread for more details as they become available.
EDIT 11/10: more details…
If you’d like to participate, call (404) 920-6610, then enter the conference code 516230#. You’ll be prompted to state your name (or screen name in this case), then will be put on hold until the chat begins at noon.
By default, you’ll be in listen-only mode. If you’d like to ask a question or make a comment, press *1. This will put you in the queue, which will be gone through in order. We’ll move overseas callers to the front of the queue. When it’s your turn, you’ll be ‘voiced’ and able to talk.
The chat went well. For those of you who couldn’t make it, here is a recording for your listening pleasure:

The folks behind the upcoming ARG Acheron (www.acheron.us) have announced a PM chat to talk about their upcoming game, scheduled to launch this summer. Acheron PM William Walrath will be in attendance as a representative to answer any question and give us a preview of what’s in store.
This moderated chat will take place on Wednesday, May 28, 2003 at 9:00 pm EDT / 6:00 pm PDT in #acheron on irc.chat-solutions.org. For browser-based access, java IRC applets can be found at http://www.acheron.us/chat.html or http://www.unfiction.com/chat.
Stop by Acheron for more information, and watch the forums at Unfiction for further details.
We’ve resolved the connectivity issues with Doug TenNapel, and have rescheduled the live chat for this Sunday, December 8, 2002 at 4:00 pm EST/1:00 pm PST.
Once again, the chat will be held in #unfiction on the Chat-Solutions network (irc.chat-solutions.org). For those of you without an IRC client, #unfiction can be accessed via a browser-based java applet here (www.argn.com/chat.htm). Check in the Unfiction Push NV forum for more details and chat guidelines
Sadly, Doug TenNapel was unable to attend last night’s live chat in #unfiction. Depite the fact the guest of honor couldn’t be there, there was a great turnout and some great conversation that continued into the early morning.
We apologize for things not going as planned, and are working hard to reschedule the chat with Mr. TenNapel. Please check back here for more details as soon as we have them.
