URxvt, ctrl+shift+n to open a new terminal?


In my ~/.Xresources i have gotten this far;

Code:
URxvt.keysym.C-N: urxvtc
So when pressing ctrl+shift+n, it prints "urxvtc" to the prompt, however i'd like to execute it, similar to how Konsole, or xfce4's terminal will open a new terminal window.

How can i do this from inside of ~/.Xresources?

I also just tried looking at plugins, and came up with this, however nothing happens.
Any ideas?

Eg; in ~/.Xresources
Code:
URxvt.perl-ext-common: default,matcher,fullscreen,tabbed,newterm
URxvt.keysym.C-N: perl:newterm:fork
~/.urxvt/ext/newterm
Code:
#! perl

sub on_user_command {
	my ($self, $cmd) = @_;
	if ($cmd eq "newterm:fork") {
		my $dummy = `urxvtc &`;
	}
}

I just found someone else's plugin that works perfectly:
https://gist.github.com/tpikonen/10294723

Instructions to use for anyone looking for this same thing,
copy that file into ~/.urxvt/ext/new-window

Then in your ~/.Xresources add new-window to your perl-ext-common line, eg;
Code:
 URxvt.perl-ext-common: new-window
Then add a keysym of your choice (here it is ctrl+shift+n)
Code:
URxvt.keysym.C-N: perl:new-window
Solved!
