Command Emotes (General)

Several commands allow you to provide an additional emote to the output of the command.


<command> (pre-emote) <arguments> [post-emote]


> sit -nodding with dwarf (his eyes glancing towards ~elf)
Nodding, you sit at a long table, his eyes glancing towards the elf.

Both the pre-emote and post-emote are optional.

Multiple options exist for specifying a command emote. A one-word
emote, like "nodding", can be specified with a preceding dash, like
-nodding. More complex emotes can be enclosed in parantheses (),
square brackets [], or asterisks **.

You can specify command emotes anywhere in the arguments to a command.
If you include parenthesis () and square brackets in the same command,
the parenthesis will always be considered pre-emote and square brackets
the post-emote, regardless of where they appear in the arguments.


> say -gruffly Got any spice?
Gruffly, you ask, in sirihish, 'Got any spice?"

> say [in a low voice] You got any spice?
In a low voice, you ask, in sirihish: 'You got any spice?'
