Nothing is set up at the moment, since we're still settling into the comm-based RP. Still, people are welcome to RP private storylines through instant messenger! If something important happens, just post a log to your character's journal so other people can know what's up. There may also be a log-posting community once this game gets off the ground a little more.
As for an RP-wide chatroom, we'll see. If we do have one, there will be an OOC and IC chat and it will probably be on an IRC client, most likely through AbleNet because they've always been good in the past. (lol IRC, I know, but it can handle many, many people at the same time!) If you have no idea what this means, don't worry - more information as well as a brief tutorial on how to connect will definitely be posted here when the time comes.
