,, EMOTE, EMOTION


This command is used to show emotions or actions. For example, if Bilbo types:

  > emote lets heavy tears roll down his cheek and fall down onto the floor.

The room would see:

  Bilbo lets heavy tears roll down his cheek and fall down onto the floor.

You can use , (comma) as an abbreviation for emote.

If the line to be emoted starts with an apostrophy (') there will be no space between the name of the character and the line. For example:

  > emote 's eyes grow wet with tears.

would produce:

  Bilbo's eyes grow wet with tears.

Also, you can use a % to specify a creature in the room. For example:

  > emote smiles warmly at %frodo.

would produce:

to the room:
Bilbo smiles warmly at Frodo.
to Frodo:
Bilbo smiles warmly at you.

If you write 's after the name in a %-construction, you get a possessive form of the command. For example:

  > emote looks at %gandalf's staff.

would produce:

to the room:
Bilbo looks at Gandalf's staff.
to Gandalf:
Bilbo looks at your staff.

There is a collection of canned emotes, social commands, if you don't want to type your own. Abuse of emote to show misleading information (such as emote slashes your head and shatters it!) can lead to punishment.
