Well, speaking of the IRC; I realize it's mostly dead, but I recently created a Slack chat; trying to gather all the ROTK fans in one place.
It's not meant to replace this site or any other, or anything like that, it's more a place to have out and chat when you have some time free, and know you're in the company of other fans of the series. It's very much meant as a "join in the conversation as it's going on" type deal. I've been working on an automatic inviter, but with no luck so far. So send me an e-mail if you would like an invite: firstname.lastname@example.org
Only a few people so far, but I ask that if you're interested, come and check us out and stick with it for a few days, see how it feels. Hope to see you guys.
Plans for V6 - Governor or General type. Still undecided.
V4 - Bei Shankuo, General who Manifests Virtue
Willing to Skype IC conversations. PM me if interested.
