New Orleans: The Big Easy Just Got Scarier

MU* Basics

General Mushing Commands


say <message> – The say command can be used to talk to someone in the same room. A shorter syntax to use is ‘<message>.

pose <action> – The pose command is used to show an action, for example “TestDummy sneaks around through the shadows, unseen by all.”. A shorter syntax to use is :<action>.

page <player>=<message> – The page command sends a message to anyone connected, and the message is considered out of character. Omitting the <player> send the message to that last person you paged. Posing using ‘:’ also works with this command.

ooc <message> – This allows you talk about out of character things to whoever is also in the room with you. It is useful for discussing things and letting others what you will be doing in character. Posing using ‘:’ also works with this command.

addcom <alias>=<channel name> – This command lets you join a channel. A channel is a general out of character chat room you can talk on. Example: addcom pub=Public.

@clist – This list all the available channels that you can join.

=<channel> <message> – Typing this in lets you communicate on one of the channels you’ve joined. Acts similarly to a “say” command. The channel name can be shortened, for example, typing “=pub Hello” sends a message to the public channel. Posing using ‘:’ also works on channels.

look <object> – This lets you see a description of a person, room, or object inside the room you’re currently in. You can just use “look” to view the room you’re in, you don’t need its name. A shorter syntax to use is just ‘l’.

+finger <player> – This allows you to see information about player, such as race, faction, and a quote.

+who – This show all the currently connected players, along with their location and connection time.

+ooc – This sends you to the out of character rooms, where you can talk and discuss without worrying about in character concerns.

+ic – This returns you back to New Orleans and In Character.

QUIT – This logs you off.
