About Snowplains

Snowplains is a talker based on EW-too by Simon Marsh. It's a place to log on to and chat with others from all over the world; all you need is a telnet program. There's much more to it than that, but that's the basic point - just select the Connect to Snowplains link and that's it! It's been (and is still being) extensively modified by the Admin to improve its friendliness and facilities, and any comments on the talker or this page will be appreciated and have a good chance of being acted up on.

The theme of the talker (or MUG or MUSH or whatever you wish to call it, but it's not really a MUD) is, erm, a snowplain. The guides, superusers and admin are all penguins of varying sorts (Chocolate, Royal and King/Emperor as appropriate).
