Channels, IC and OOC, are governed by an overarching set of rules. It is a good idea to be familiar with them.
say - use the say command to speak with others in the same room as you, you can say <message> to say something to everyone in the room, or even say to <name> <message> to say a message to a particular person in the room. The latter syntax works with both players and NPCs. The say command is In character.
rsay - use the rsay command to speak in your own racial language. Every race has a language and typically, only members of the same race can speak and understand this same language. The basic usage of it is similar to the say command, where you might rsay <message> or rsay to <name> <message>. The rsay command is In character.
tell - the tell command allows you speak to a person using a remote, private mental link. You can simply tell <name> <message> to send them a message, or tell <name> ;<emoted message> to emote to them remotely. The tell command is In character.
whisper - the whisper command allows you to speak to someone privately who is in the same room with you. You may whisper <name> <message> or whisper <name> ;<emoted message>. The whisper command is In character.
Global chat channels
Global chat channels come in both public and restricted varieties. They are global inasmuch as they are accessible nearly anywhere in the game. Some chat channels are In character, while others are Out of character. Never are they both, however.
These channels require you to be tuned in to speak on.
To speak on a channel, you simply type <channel name> <message>, for example heritage Hello!. You may also emote over a channel, using the ;, such heritage ;smile.
Where to get help? The following channels are Out of character and are available to you depending on your level. You can also ask for help on the #question channel in our Discord.
|heritage||Useful for newcomers to ask questions or seek help. Available until guild level 10.|
