', -, ASK, CHAT, COMMENT, GROUP TELL, SAY, SPEAK, TALK, TELL, TELL GROUP, WHISPER


If you consider communicating with other beings, you might be understood better if you start your sentences with either say, tell, whisper or ask.

say is heard by everyone in your room, while the other three commands; ask, tell and whisper, are only heard by the person who you are talking to.

Examples:

  > tell CryHavoc You're dead meat - sucker!     [not advised]
  > whisper thief Wanna teach me some illegal stuff?
  > ask bilbo Have you found that ring yet?
  > say Hi guys, lets go orc hunting?!
  > comment duh gotta go AFK a sec, building on fire

Notes

  • All commands except comment (that can be abbreviated -) are meant for In Character (IC) communication. Communication on player to player level is held with the comment command.
  • Apostrophe (') is a shorter form of the say command.
  • The outputs of say, whisper, ask and narrate are influenced by the comprehension level of the language that is being used; tell and emote are not.
  • The command tell group is a shortcut to send a message to all players (but not mobiles) that are grouped with you. Note the messages are all sent after a delay equal to the time that would take sending individual messages.
