Talking to other people

By using the Say command, you can talk to other people. Remember, this is a roleplaying game. You are expected to play a character. Using things such as internet jargon is considered NOT roleplaying!

You can use your radio headset if you need to speak to people who aren't on the screen.

Roleplaying correctly

If you are going to be playing a character, it's only right you should know some things about the background of where you are and what you are doing. Use the main page of the wiki, scroll down to the lore section and begin reading! SEV Torch is a good article to start on. You aren't expected to know everything or even a great many of things, but you should have some basic background.

If you can answer the following questions, you are probably good enough to play:

  • What purpose does the SEV Torch serve?
  • Where does your character come from?
  • What are their motivations for being on the ship?

Emoting and combat

To further your roleplay, you may use emotes. Emotes are custom messages that allow you to perform actions that the game doesn't actually support. Consider it like explaining your characters actions in a Dungeons and Dragons game. To do this, simply type me " " with your action between the quotes. Be realistic.

In some situations, you may find yourself needing to fight or shoot at an enemy. You are not expected to emote during this time, instead, use the in-game mechanics for combat. Emoting can take too long. Furthermore, nobody is forced to listen to a villainous dialogue (although, it may be wise to listen occasionally if they have something important to say.)
