Type System
System ESP

The CHAT verb works with the ESP System as a direct shortcut to send messages on the OOC channel. Settings can be seen via the ESP verb. Note: While you can THINK TO someone for a private message, you cannot CHAT TO an individual with a private message and an attempt to do so will result in the following error message.


Note: Displayed with CHAT only, CHAT HELP is not an option.

    CHAT {message}                   - Send a message on the OOC channel.
    ESP                              - Control your ESP settings and channels.


  • When not tuned to OOC:
You must be TUNED to the OOC channel to broadcast a message on it.
  • When attempting to CHAT directly to someone:
>chat to naijin hey there!
It looks like you are trying to send a thought to a specific person.
CHAT is used to speak directly on the OOC channel.  To direct thoughts, see the THINK verb.
