The one and only Tolkien IRC Network since January 2005
Tolkien Gateway's official chat server is located at irc.tolkiengateway.net port: 6667 for IRC clients and averages 20-30 users in the main lobby. If you have no idea what that says, then you probably want to use one of the java versions we have online: Version 1, Version 2, Version 3.
