Advanced Emotes

Basic Emotes

You can use the 'emote' command or the ':' command shortcut to throw out a simple emote.
Example: emote dances around the room with a wide grin on his face.
Those in the room see: Constantine dances around the room with a wide grin on his face.

Advanced Emotes

You can also make use of advanced syntax to have emotes that can be targeted directly at someone in the room by using the <> signs to surround that person's name. Note: you can only use ONE set of <> per emote.
Example: emote dances around the room and winks suggestively towards <leda>.
Those in the room see: Constantine dances around the room and winks suggestively towards Leda.
Leda sees: Constantine dances around the room and winks suggestively towards you.

You can also make use of the above <> to target an object or person within your current room. Note: you can only use <> to target ONE object or person per emote.
Example: emote dances around <bar>.
Those in the room see: Constantine dances around an elegantly carved softsun bar with sea creatures and scenes emerging from the grain.

You cannot use multiple sets of <> to target several objects or people in a single emote.
Example: emote dances around <bar> and smiles at <leda>.
Those in the room see: Constantine dances around an elegantly carved softsun bar with sea creatures and scenes emerging from the grain and smiles at <leda>.

However, you CAN target the same person or object multiple times.
Example: emote dances around <leda> and smiles suggestively, grabbing <leda> by the arm.
Those in the room see: Constantine dances around Leda and smiles suggestively, grabbing Leda by the arm.
Leda sees: Constantine dances around you and smiles suggestively, grabbing you by the arm.

You can also use +p in conjecture with <> to create a possessive.
Example: emote dances around the room and grabs <leda+p> arm.
Those in the room see: Constantine dances around the room and grabs Leda's arm.
Leda sees: Constantine dances around the room and grabs your arm.

The usage of @ in an emote will allow you to switch your character's name from the beginning to the emote to where you placed the @ symbol.
Example: emote Hooting wildly, @ dances around the room.
Those in the room see: Hooting wildly, Constantine dances around the room.

You can also combine @ and <> along with +p in a single emote.
Example: emote Hooting wildly, @ dances around the room and grabs <leda+p> arm.
Those in the room see: Hooting wildly, Constantine dances around the room and grabs Leda's arm.
Leda sees: Hooting wildly, Constantine dances around the room and grabs your arm.


Advanced Macros

Basic Macros:

Macros are SHORTHAND commands that can be typed in to execute long or specific commands without having to fully type them out. Macros can be very useful for combat, emoting and general actions that can be quite tedious. You can type in @macro while in the game to see the macro menu:

Macros
 [A] Add Macro
 [D] Delete Macro
 [L] List Macro [15 defined]
 [S] Set Macro Set
 [C] Create Macro Set
 [R] Remove Macro Set
 [I] Import Macro Set

Every character starts with 15 "defined" macros. These are fe1-fe15. If for example you set fe1 to "stand", click on the I that is just above the mini-map in the Orchil client will immediately enter the "stand" command for you in the game. You can set fe1, fe2, etc. all the way up to fe15 to have macros that you can easily click on. You can also have several macro sets on a single character based on the tasks at hand, if you wish (for example: a character who knows pickpocketing and combat, a character who has specially set up macros for gladiating that he doesn't want to use outside of the arena, etc.).

Now, if you type in @macro you will make the macro menu pop up. Enter A into the input field and then press enter.

Enter the shorthand macro string:

This is the short command that you wish to transform into a longer command. As an example, you could type in TL and then press enter. You will then be prompted with the following:

Enter the string you wish this macro to expand to:

This is the longer command that you wish TL to transfer into. TL could be anything that you wish, but in this case, TL would be use for TAKE LANTERN. You then type in TAKE LANTERN and press Enter.

You have successfully added a macro! Macros can extend to anything you wish it to. Some other examples: pwims -> put whip in my sack, supersmile -> emote opens his mouth wide open and flashes a quick smile. , help -> yell I need help! I'm being attacked! , fb -> fall back , and the list goes on and on!

Quickly Adding Macros

You can quickly add new macros to your existing macro set WITHOUT having to go through the @macro menu. Simply type in:

@macro TT

Which will then create a shorthand macro for the TT command and then type in what you wish the command to expand to:

take torch

Simply press enter and voila! Your have a brand new macro set without having to go through the menu. Typing in TT will now do: take torch.

Macro Sets

Now let's say that you wish to have different macro sets for your fe1-fe15. You can do so by creating more than one macro set. Here is how to do it:

In the menu, select C. Let's name our new macro set PICKPOCKETING. From there you will go back to the previous menu. Type in S and then type in pickpocketing. Your current macro set will now be pickpocketing. You can now set up your fe1-fe15 for your pickpocketing play (@macro fe1 -> l for trader, @macro fe2 -> app trader, @macro fe3 -> l trader, @macro fe4 -> lift pouch from trader, etc.) You now have your "default" and "pickpocketing" macro sets. You can create as many as you like. All you have to do is use @macro and then use S to set your active macro set.

Advanced Macros:

The TARGET command can be used in conjunction with the macro system. The TARGET command allows you to target a specific object which your macros will then use as reference:

Combat Usage:

Shorthand macro:
stf
Expanded macro:
slash <target> face

Now if you type in: target thug and you try your stf macro it will attempt to slash thug face. The <target> will be replaced by whatever you set your target as while using the TARGET command.

You can also make use of | (shift+#) to create several targets that will be cycled through. For example: target thug|brute|dog will now target those three opponents. If there are no thugs or brutes, the dog will be your target. It will always cycle from first to last in terms of priority.

Instead of always typing out target thug|brute|dog when you go to the alleys, you could create a macro for it:

Shorthand macro:
alleys
Expanded macro:
target thug|brute|dog

You could therefore set one for every hunting ground in the game. "island" -> target crab|gull|snapper|fluvitur and so on.

Keep in mind that if you use MAN or WOMAN as a target, you may accidentally attack a friend if they make use of a faceplate, so always try to be as precise as possible when creating targets. Simply using "thu" instead of "thug" could result in you attacking Thurok.

Emote Usage:

The TARGET command can also be used in macros that make use of the emote command.

Shorthand macro:
supersmile
Expanded macro:
emote opens his mouth wide open and flashes a quick smile at <target>.

You can also make use of the above syntax in the EMOTE section to create all sorts of macro'ed emotes. If you wish to use a possessive with your target, you can also do so: «target>+p>
Expanded macro:
emote opens his mouth wide open and flashes a quick smile in «target>+p> direction.

It would show up as: Yourname opens his mouth wide open and flashes a quick smile in Leda's direction. when you enter the supersmile command if Leda is your TARGET.


Advanced Speech

Verbs and Adverbs

The verb system that TEC is a fantastic way to enhance your character, it is also seriously underused. The verbs and adverbs allow you to describe how you are speaking, rather than just saying something.

Don't just ask that hood not to slit your throat, whine to him, beg of him, blubber at him. If you're feeling confident you could demand of him, interrupt him, preach to him or even mock him.

You can also further refine your speech with adverbs. By combining verbs and adverbs, you'll have thousands of new ways to say something!

Syntax

There are a variety of ways that you can use verbs and adverbs, ranging from simple (yelp man) to the complex (yelp submissively to man "Please don't hurt me!)
The syntax for using verbs is really quite simple. Once adverbs are thrown into the mix things do get a little more complicated but you should have no problem with it once you've used it a couple of times.

Command Syntax Example Outcome
verb target scoff man You scoff at a man.
verb preposition target purr toward man You purr toward a man.
verb preposition target "speech-text observe to man "I hate patricians. You observe to a man, "I hate patricians."
verb "speech-text declare "I am not wearing any breeches today! You declare, "I am not wearing any breeches today!"
verb adverb "speech-text gurgle drunkenly "Tha's some tasy ale!" You gurgle drunkenly, "Tha's some tasy ale!"
verb adverb preposition target "speech-text sputter threateningly to man "Leave my pet fish alone. You sputter threateningly to a man, "Leave my pet fish alone."

Most verbs use a certain default preposition if you do not specify it.
You can swap the order of the verb and adverb.

Additional Examples

screech "I hate patricians! You screech, "I hate patricians!" Phwoar screeches, "I hate patricians!"
groan marn You groan at Marnevel Phwoar groans at Marnevel
whoop phw You whoop at Phwoar Marvevel whoops at Phwoar
cheer marn You cheer for Marnevel Phwoar cheers for Marnevel
announce marn "You need a bath! You announce to Marnevel, "You need a bath!" Phwoar announces to Marnevel, "You need a bath!"
inform phw "You smell like raw sewage. You inform Phwoar, "You smell like raw sewage." Marnevel informs Phwoar, "You smell like raw sewage."
babble to marn "You smell worse. You babble to Marnevel, "You smell worse." Phwoar babbles to Marnevel, "You smell worse."
