Renaissance Kingdoms channel Edit
If you don't feel comfortable about getting yourself one of numerous IRC clients (see the Distribution model column), there's a web-chat on Dark Myst main page ; go to its main page (see a previous link) then click the big button with "chat now" or click here then enter "#renaissancekingdoms" in the Channel field.
IRC is similar to Instant Messenger (IM), ie: MSN, Yahoo!, AIM. It's also beet told it can be thought of like Twitter with everyone following everyone ; although about particular topics/subjects.
