SorceryNet IRC Services

Sorcerynet IRC Services is a program that provides an Internet Relay Chat network with nickname and channel registration and protection. The services supplied are NickServ, ChanServ, MemoServ, GameServ (a dice-rolling service), InfoServ (for broadcast messages) and OperServ, which has clone detection, global autokill and many other features.

Services are mature -- SorceryNet was founded in 1996, and the services were written from scratch in a combination of C and C++.
