Jump to: navigation, search

At this point, you've connected to the game, you've made a character and you've gotten approved. Now comes the fun part - actually playing! This is a list of basic commands to play on Neighvada Nights. This is not a list of every command. Just enough to get you started.

As always, do not type the brackets (< or >) when entering commands.


You're here to chat, right?

Command Aliases Help File
"<text> ' say (quotation mark) is how you speak. For example, if you were Applejack and typed "Hello! then other players would see Applejack says, "Hello!" help say
:<text> ; pose (colon) is how you emote. For example, if you were Applejack and typed :waves! then other players would see Applejack waves! help pose
|<text> spoof (pipe) is how you spoof, simply posting plain text without your name appended. For example, if you were Applejack and typed |[horse noises] then other players would only see [horse noises] Players can set spoof to always say who spoofed it, as detailed in the help file. spoof #help
page <user>=<message> p <user>=<message> page is how you send a private message to another character anywhere on the MUCK. For example, if you typed page Applejack=What's up? then the player Applejack would see a message from you that says <you> pages, "What's up?" to you. page #help
whisper <user>=<message> w <user>=<message> whisper is a second way to send a private message to another character, but only in the same room. It behaves almost the same as page. whisper #help
Note: Both whisper and page accept partial usernames. Whisper Applej=<message> will work just as well, assuming there is only one player whose name starts with Applej. Additionally, you can make either a pose with (colon), for example w Applej=:poses! will send the message <you> whispers, "<you> poses!" to Applejack.
pub <message> pub sends a message to the Public chat channel, which all players will see unless they disabled it. For example, if you typed pub Heya everyone!!! all active players would receive [Public] <you> says, "Heya everyone!" This is mostly used for public announcements, as conversations in here spam literally everyone. comsys alias

There are multiple, overlapping player list commands that each give slightly different outputs.

WHO upper-case WHO shows a list of online players organized by their connection time, with their idle time and what they are @doing. help WHO
wa find fa where wa shows a list of locations, both IC and OOC, and what players are currently in them. wa #help
ws ws shows a list of players in the same room as you, as well as their gender, species, idle timer, and short description, if set.


So you know who people are and where they are, now to get to them.
