MUME Rules

CHANNELS, COMMUNICATION CHANNELS


Each communication channel on MUME has a different purpose, please use them appropriately.

Shout
It is reserved for short, rare, very important messages. Since it is impossible to turn it off, use this channel very carefully.
Narrate
A generic communication channel, which can be used also for subjects which are not a question of life or death. It is supposed to be used for game talk and only in English.
Sing
A channel that can be used for any kind of information, a gossip channel.
Tell
One-to-one communication, in any language you feel like.
Say
Used to talk to all people in one room, this communication should be in English — unless everybody in the room feels OK about other languages being spoken.
Yell
Since it can be heard both by players on your side and on the opposite side, you must be careful when you yell. Going outside the Warrens and yelling that XYZ the Legend is alone, wounded, icy and exhausted at the Small Stream Crossing at midnight isn't good for your health, especially if what you yelled is true.
You can use a pet or a charmed mobile to narrate, but you should be very careful not to cause spam.

Examples:

  • Bilbo buys ten dogs and makes them narrate 'Woof!'. This is bad.
  • Bilbo charms Lobelia (unlikely :>) and commands her to sing, once, "happy birthday dear Bilbo". No problem.
Note that it is illegal to use non-MUME-channels (like instant messangers, IRC, …) to go around ingame restrictions (crossrace, you are slept, …).
