I'm designing a RP forum but when the characters have to talk to each other the game turns as slow as a crippled turtle with Alzheimer's.
Do you know of any online chat or chat-like resource I can use for a closed game? I am looking for a text-based chat that would allow for off-topic and on-topic talking between players to assist in speeding up our games on the forum.
EDIT: I would add: That players may not know who is the player beneath the char. A chat where you enter with an alias. So that chars only know themselves as chars. Oh and text based because I would like to copy it and paste on a web.
