The CC command allows for communication to a large, but select, group of individuals, such as members of your guild, profession, or order, your allies, or your fellow citizens.
It is possible to communicate in an extra-Avalon manner using the CC command. This is a way to call across the land, no matter your character's state, bypassing restrictions and prying eyes and ears, to speak with those with whom you have some kind of legitimate close affinity: your fellow guildmembers, citizens of your city, those who share your profession, folks on your friends list, followers of the same divinity, etc. The DUMB command can be used by ranked individuals to silence abusive or spamming novices but otherwise nothing can interfere with free-use of the calling system.
The easiest way to use the CC command is to add a single letter, which determines the type of calling you are using, and then simply include what you wish to call to those privileged to hear. You may also use the full version of the command, CC followed by the designation (e.g. CITY or GUILD) and then what you wish to say. Below is a list of the most concise CC versions:
CCC <text> to call to citizens of your homeland city.
CCG <text>to speak with members of your guild only.
CCF <text> to talk with personal friends listed on FRIENDS (see HELP FRIENDS).
CCP <text> to send your calling to all those who share your profession.
CCO <text> to call out to everyone in your order, followers of the same deity.
CCN <text> to speak only with novices and public relations ministries.
CCM <text> to communicate with fellows in your city's military (see HELP ARMY).
CCQ <text> to speak to those with competitor status (see COMPETITORS).
CCT <text> to speak with members of your Team (in divinely-run Quests).
CCTT <text> to speak to all members of all teams in a current Quest. CCOFQ <text> to speak to everybody participating with you in a Flag Quest.
The equivalent of the above are, respectively: CC CITY, CC GUILD, CC FRIENDS, CC PROFESSION, CC ORDER, CC QUESTORS, CC MILITARY and CC NOVICES.
If you do not wish to hear one of the calling communication methods - for instance you may be busy, focussed elsewhere or simply desire peace-and-quiet you can BLOCK any of the channels via CC BLOCK <calling method> and then reverse this via CC UNBLOCK <calling method>. To cut calling out completely use CC BLOCK ALL, reversed via CC UNBLOCK ALL. Calling methods are: city, guild, profession, order and novices.
All CC commands are private. This means they bypass watchers and snoopers and runebuggers and the like. The CC calling is particularly useful for city or guild combats or widespread warfare where quick, trustworthy but non-compromised communication is required.
