The chat pane is located at the bottom of the window. It displays dialogue from other players, as well as events.
The chat pane includes a prompt (marked with
>) which allows the player to enter chat, poses, and commands.
Chat is displayed as entered. For example, typing
You say, “Hello, everyone.”
Other players will instead see
[Your name] says, “Hello, everyone.”
If your text ends with an exclamation point (!) or question mark (?), then “says” will be changed to “exclaims” or “asks” respectively.
Poses are entered with a leading colon (:), which will be replaced with your name and a space. For example, typing
[Your name] waves.
You can type anything as a pose. These are all valid poses, and will do what you'd expect:
:points at the lever.
:flourishes a wand. “Abracadabra!”
:falls asleep on her keyboakjksdlasda;an;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
/me command does the same thing:
Commands are entered with a leading slash (/), and are documented in the article Commands.
