  1. Greetings...you have chosen wisely, Grasshopper. :)

    Sonoma...home of the Township of Darkmoor, the YMCA, the Sonoma Alliance, Havenhold, Isle of Avalon, Caendryl Township, Oasis Fight Nights, the Dark Tower, the Horse Races, Sotheby's Auction House, Rainbow Inn and numerous other player venues...proud possessor of a rich history which is still created daily by many of the original participants.

    Sonoma is regarded by its community as the best shard around, due to its friendly denizens, helpful players and a wellspring of fertile imagination. We may be small, but we stick together! *grins*

    So settle back, read the RoC uptop (*points*), then introduce yourself and get to know us. Feel free to post ANY shard-specific or community-related messages here. If you have any questions or need assistance with anything, just ask. We'll be happy to help. It's good to see you here. :)

    LINKS: Links are added here from time to time, to ultimately make this forum a coherent place to learn of current quests, events, past history and your fellow players:

    Sonoma is blessed with many gifted authors. You may read the wonderful tale(s) of one such here: Rose's Story.

    Another great location for local authors' works (as well as some select biographies) is Ghost's The Lycaeum. Thanks, Ghost! (by the way, he is always seeking submissions)

    A central location for local guilds' forums, including many of our regular favorites here...a great place to contact and converse with your local guild(s). Check out Stratics' Sonoma Guilds Forums

    For shard-specific news and information on establishments, you may visit Stratics' Sonoma News.

    Please visit the site created by Bitter Oswald for the Yew Merry Center for All, whether you seek further information, or have any archived history to submit. :)

    For those of you with mIRC: Please check out #uosonoma, on any Stratics server, port 6667. For directions on how to sign up, please read on:

    In an effort to provide another medium of conversation for players of Sonoma, the Sonoma community has an IRC channel available for use. This channel, #uosonoma, is on the Stratics IRC Network and is dedicated to the use of players of Sonoma.
    If you don't already have an IRC client you can either use the Stratics Java IRC client which can be found at http://irc.stratics.com or any other software client, such as mIRC (http://www.mirc.com) or Trillian (http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/trillian/index.html).

    The settings you need to connect to the Stratics server are :
    server name : irc.stratics.com
    port : 6668
    channel : #uosonoma

    For further information on how to connect please see: http://chat.stratics.com/

    These directions will walk you through step by step. You may want to print this out for further reference as you are going through the download process. With that said...here are your directions...

    * Go to mirc.com
    * Click on "download and try mirc 6.02" (this tutorial is dated: newer versions exist)
    * Click on any download site closest to where you are
    * Click "save" and let it download
    * Open where you put the file, double click the icon
    * Click "next" then "yes", then "install"
    * Your choice, either read the info or click "Launch" then "finish"
    * Read thru the introduction if you need to get familiar with mIRC
    * Click the x
    * There are several boxes in front of you... you want the second box. It should say (I'm assuming its the same for everyone) Random US Dal network. Even if it doesnt, doesn't matter, thats the box you're changing right now anyway.
    * Click "add" then type in the description bar irc.frws.com . (The irc.frws.com server seems to be the most stable) Type it again in the IRC server box. * Click "add"
    * Now fill if your name (I have my nickname there, not my real name) So if your char name is Harriet, type in Harriet, etc. Your email address is NOT visable to ANYONE so don't worry, type it in.
    * Where it says Nickname type your char name, and then for alternate, if you choose, you can put something else in there or just leave blank.
    * Click "ok"
    * Click the 3rd box over from the left...it has a # and a + on it. (thats the list of all the rooms on that server)
    * Type in #uosonoma on top box and in description then click "add" then "join"
    * Guess what, YOU'RE IN THE ROOM!! Welcome!!
    * To register your name so no one else can use it on the stratics network, in the bottom bar where your curser is, type this: /register YOURNICKNAME HERE &lt;yourpassword here&gt;
    For example: /register Harriet &lt;blahblah&gt;
    Thanks and see you there!!! (my gratitude to whomever founded #sonspawn and wrote this tutorial at the time; unfortunately the name has been lost and so cannot be credited. Contact me to correct the oversight, please)
