The simplest form of communication is just speak using the SAY command. SAY followed by what you wish to speak aloud will communicate with anybody who is in your location.
2002h, 2002m aex --- say Hi there! You say, "Hi there!"
You can also speak directly to any other Avalonian who is currently within the world using a TELL. Simply enter their name followed by what you wish to tell them: for example, XANDAMERE HI THERE! would send a tell to Xandamere, if you were fortunate enough to spot the Master Thief. Take care that any other person in your target's location who possesses a bug rune will hear your tell.
2002h, 2002m aex --- xandamere Hello You tell Count Xandamere, the Damned "Hello."
The final method of communicating with another player is by private message. Messages are permanent and can be sent to any character, even if they are not in Avalon at the present time. If they are not within the land when you send the message, they will see it when they next arrive in Avalon. The MSG command allows you to send a message at a token cost of 5 gold coins, and RMSG is used to read messages that others have sent to you. Messages can also be useful for private communication, as they cannot be seen via bug runes or other methods of snooping.
2002h, 2002m aex --- msg xandamere I wanted to speak with you You send a message to Xandamere: "I wanted to speak with you." 2002h, 2002m aex --- Xandamere has just left you a message 2002h, 2002m aex --- rmsg Xandamere: "What do you want?"
