Jump to: navigation, search

This is an extensive list of all the commands you will be likely to use on Pokemorph MUSH. The basic commands are available on any MUSH, but some of the advanced and extra commands are PMM specific.

Basic Commands

who 
This will bring up the list of currently connected characters. You'll see the staff members at the bottom, and their status. If it's 'On', go ahead and page them- they'll be happy to help you.
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. If you want it to be a pose instead of a message, add a : after the =. Example: page fault=Hi! (This will show as: You paged Fault with 'Hi!'.) Example: page fault=:waves! (This will show as: Long distance to Fault: Akito waves!) This command can be shortened to a simple 'p' instead of "page".
+ooc <message> / 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 ':' or ';' also works with this command.
@chan/join <channel name> 
This command lets you join a channel. A channel is a general out of character chat system you can talk on.
@chan/title <channel name>=<channel title> 
This sets the title that can appear before your name on a channel. See ‘help ansi()’ to set color.
@chan/list 
This lists all the available channels that you can join.
@chan/what 
This lists all the available channels that you can join, and provides descriptions of some channels.
@chan/gag <channel name> 
This useful command allows you to gag or silence a named channel. Once a channel has been gagged, you will no longer see messages posted to it. This is perfect to silence, for example, +pub while you're roleplaying. The gag will automatically lift next time you disconnect. Example: @chan/gag pub (This would gag pub.)
@chan/ungag <channel name> 
Undoes the effects of the '@chan/gag' command. After you ungag a gagged channel, you will receive messages from it once again.
+<channel name> <message> 
Typing this in lets you communicate on one of the channels you've joined. The channel name can be shortened. Example: +pub Hi! I'm new! This will post to the public channel <Public> Akito says, "Hi, I'm new!" Posing using ':' or ';' 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.
+look <name> 
This lets you see a description of a person, regardless of their location or whether or not they're online. Handy when you want to check the desc of someone that's currently in a private room or has just gone offline.
+finger <name> 
This allows you to see information about player, such as profile, faction, and a quote. Any information on your +finger can by changed by contacting an admin.
@mail <name>=<subject>/<message> 
This command invokes the built-in MUSH mailer, which allows players to send and receive mail to each other. You can read your mail by typing @mail and the number of the message. Example: @mail 1
where 
This shows the location of all the currently connected players.
+help 
When in doubt, check the +help files. It works like this; type '+help topicname' to see of there is an article written about that particular command. Example: +help common commands will bring up a list of some of the commands available on the MUSH. You don't have to include the whole topic name; Incomplete names will go to the first match found. (+help com will get you to Common Commands)
help 
If +help doesn't have what you're looking for, try the standard 'help'. It'll give you tips on the basics. Example: help @mail
+bbread 
Please read the bulletin boards! Type +bbread to get a list of all the boards on the MUSH. +bbread # will show you a particular board's messages. +bbread #/# will show you a particular message. If you want to clear the unread messages to just keep up with the current, type +bbcatchup all. Example: +bbread 4/14 will show the message about the Roleplay Request Channel.
+bbpost <#>/<subject>=<body> 
This posts a message on the bulletin board to group <#>. This is a quick way of posting a message with one command.
@set me=ansi 
If you have an ansi-enabled client, type this command to see the MUSH in living color.
QUIT 
This logs you off.

Advanced Commands

+oocfinger <name> 
This allows you to see Out of Character information about player, such as email address, alternate characters, etc. Help setting all the attributes can be found by typing +help +oocfinger.
+find 
This can give you a list of the current number of a certain species. Example: +find pikachu* will show a list of Pikachu-Morphs.
+home 
This command teleports you to the place you have set as your home on the IC Grid. @link <room dbref or "here">=home links a place to be set as your home.
+ps 
This command gives you the ability to change your status, which is shown on the who. Example: +ps ic will change your status to In Character.
+last <name> 
This shows you when a character was last connected and for how long.
oocc 
This command will take you back to the OOC Lounge. Using the command a second time will send you back to wherever you were on the IC grid. Handy in case you get lost.
+join <name> / +summon <name> 
These commands allow you to meet up with a player on the IC Grid. Join takes you to them, summon takes them to you. +agree is the universal response to a meet request. Any meet request, join or summon, will expire after 120 seconds if there's no response.

@desc me=<description> 
This is how you can set your description on the MUSH. You can change this at any time according to what you're wearing at the time.
@set me=xterm256 
This will allow you to see and utilize a much wider range of colors on the MUSH. Please note that not all MU* clients are able to display 256 colors, and you can use the commant @set me=!xterm256 to disable it. Also see '+colors' below.
+colors

Fun Commands

The Wizards are not without their humorous side. Often, some of them will put in random commands that have no real bearing to the MUSH, but are nonetheless fun to use. This section lists those commands, and what they do (and possibly why they were made).

+spiders 
Causes a randomly generated amount of spiders to fall on the person who used the command. Example: "The sky opens and you are rained on by 28503298 spiders."
+child
Takes three names from the who list, and puts them together in the format of "The child of x and y is z", often with humourous results. Example: "The child of Fault and Gab is Akito." Being a fun command, the code was not fully developed, and it is possible to get such humorous messages as "The child of Fault and Fault is Akito", "The child of Fault and Gab is Fault", and so on.
+bp <name>
The infamous "Butterpudding" command. You will always get a result no matter what you put in for the name. So for instance, entering "+bp the PMM Wiki" will result in "<Public> Bupkis whips out a butterpudding and launches it at the PMM Wiki! ==================] *jippi*".
+metronome
This will display "You used Metronome! ..." and then display a randomly selected move. e.g. "You used Metronome! ... GrassWhistle"
who2
This will display a humourously randomised version of the who list. This list was introduced during April Fool's day, and did such things as changing players' status, gender, species (Changing them from a Morph to a non-morph, for example) and Faction.
