Socials

Help Socials


Syntax:

    socials                  : Displays all socials.
    socials <string>        : Displays socials with given string.
    random                  : Uses a random social.


Summary:

Type 'socials' to get a list. 
Type a social name to use it. 
Type 'social [target]' to use a social on someone else.
Type 'gossip *smile' to use the smile social on the gossip channel.

Detail:

Socials are a pre-set list of various actions that may either have no 
target (*nod = "You nod.") or target yourself or another player/monster
(*nod ivar  = "You nod at Ivar."). 

To see a complete list of socials, type 'socials'.  To search the socials
file for a specific word, use 'socials <word>'.  To see the specific
actions a specific social will do, use 'shelp <social>' (see 'help shelp').

You may also use 'random' instead of a specific social to use a random
social from the list.

For information on how to use socials on channels, see 'help channels'.

If a game command and a social overlap (e.g., 'poker' command vs. 'poke'

social), prefix the social with a * (like '*poke ivar').


It is also possible to add new socials to the game; see 'help new social'.

Note: Curse-only socials (see 'help nocurse') will only work on channels;
they do not work in rooms.

The 'strictsocials' command sets your character so that you have to use the
'*' prefix to social someone. This is to help reduce the number of socials 
caused by typos. The current 'strictsocials' setting can be seen by typing 
'config all'.
