3.7 CHANNELS AND USING THEM
A channel is way to communicate with a group - guilds, clans, cities, orders, newbies, and even yelling and shouting. For all channels except clan channels, HELP LANGUAGERULES apply. The first channel for most is NEWBIE. Just type NEWBIE -message- and everyone listening to the newbie channel will see the message. Other channels are: Name Command For whom? ---- ------- --------- City - CT - citizens (see HELP CITYCOMMANDS) CGT - collegium (see HELP COLLEGIUM) Clan - CLT - clan members (see HELP CLANCOMMAND) Guild - GT - apprentices and full members GTS - members of Guild Rank 5 and above Market - MARKET - buying and selling, for level 11+ Newbie - NEWBIE - levels 1-30, and others helping them Order - OTO - for the outer order - OT - for the order proper - OTI - for the inner order Shout - SHOUT - levels 21+ Yell - YELL - anybody, to all in same local area To turn most channels on, put ON after its name. Same with OFF. For example, GNTON, NEWBIEOFF, etc. Exceptions: SHOUTSON and YELLSON. Type CONFIG COLOUR to control how the guild messages appear to you. Staying IN CHARACTER, and Other Restrictions -------------------------------------------- Always stay in character (IC) on channels - you are playing the role of a person in a magical world called Lusternia. Talk about real life, other muds, or your favorite singer - this should all be done outside the game or, if you must, use TELLS. Be most careful with shouts - stay in character, watch language rules. Market channel is only for buying and selling: no chatting please. Newbie channel is for questions and answers about how to play the game: no chatting please. Most other channels have their own rules, but are generally more tolerant of chatting and general conversation. All channels are subject to HELP LANGUAGERULES, except clan channels.
