Commands help you to control your character, change gaming options or get informations. Commands can be typed in the textbox of the client and are affirmed with "return".

A list with all commands that are available can be purchased with the command /help. Further information about a specific command can be gotten with /help <command>, for example /help help.

Please note that some commands are spelled /help and some \help in this guide. For nearly all commands both ways should work, no matter which is given here.

There are two categories of commands: those related to the client and those related to the server. While the server-related commands should work for everyone, the client-related may differ depending on the client and the version that is being used. To have a clear structure, the server-related commands are devided in the four categories.

Many commands need the name of an active player, for example /push Gyges. As with every command its sufficient to enter only as many letters until the name is clearly recognizable. If there is a Gyges and a Gysere playing at the moment it is enough to type /push gyg to push the GM away. The same is true for poses and items.

Please note that many actions are not available when being fallen. For spirits the commands concerning speech are even more limited.

\SHARE [\lock|\unlock] [name] 
If no name is specified you see a list of your shares. If a name is given you will share your experiences ("create a spiritlink") with the person. If you already shared 5 persons (which is the maximum) the one you shared first will get unshared automatically. If you add the term \lock the share will be locked, meaning the person doesn´t get unshared, no matter how many more you start to share. This link can be made temporary again with \unlock, of course \unshare ends it aswell. A share has several effects:
* If you are no healer but share with one, this healer can heal you more easily, he needs less spirit for it. Healers can heal each other without any malus, no matter if they share each other or not.
* If you share a person (no matter if both share or just one) you can see if this person falls and vice versa.
* Plyers that are shared by you get a part of the experience you gain. This doesn´t mean that you get less, their part is a community-bonus.
You can share at most 5 others, while you can be shared from an infinite amount of others. People sharing you can be recognized by the bold name, people you share are underlined. Shortform is 'sh'.

unshares all not-locked shares. \UNSHARE <name> cancels the spiritlink to the specified person. Shortform is 'un'.

Some poses can be made in different <directions>, if no direction is given it is done to the south. The commands also work in your own language. List of all poses
\PRAY <text> 
will send your message to all GMs currently online.

\BUG <text> 
is used for reporting problems you encounter while playing. It is recommended to bug at exactly the place you recognized the bug as the GMs will be able to see your coordinates. To make it easier for the GMs use one of the following key words as the first word in your bug-message to classify the problem: account, mystic, court, pf, tip, suggestion, praise, OS X, autoupdate, client, clans, macros, lag, images, sounds, masks, spriggins, fishing, monsters, typos, grammar, fallen, depart, win.
\OPTIONS <option> <value> 
sets the specified value to the selected option. \OPTIONS LIST will show you all options and their current values. \OPTIONS ? <option> displays the help for the option.
\options speech speed [slow|normal|fast|zoom] 
Changes the speech speed of NPCs.
\options language [german|french|dutch] 
Changes the language in which everything in the game will be display to one of the three languages. This affects talk of NPCs and messages given with the /multi-command aswell as all items, messages and client-language.
\REPORT <name> <reason> 
will blame the other player for improper behaviour. The reports will be judged by the GMs. Don´t try to abuse this function, beacause you will get punished in this case.
Will make your character sleep, recognizable at the brown player label. If you use this command in the meditation tower, you will immediately log off. If you use this command somewhere else in the world it only shows the player is not "really there", there is still the time of several minutes before you log out and only if you don´t do anything in this time. Another effect of this command is, that sleeping players can´t be pushed. Entering \sleep a second time will result in waking up. You also wake up from any other action despite pondering and thinking.Shortform is 'sl'.
The last hope of a fallen. If there is no chance that you can be healed you can depart from the spot where you were fallen and enter the magical arindal, which will merge your body and spirit again. It should be obvious that this can´t be done without any harm, as the result of your depart, you will lose some experience and forget some of your training (you have a malus) which comes back slowly by killing some monsters. You can only depart, if your spirit left your body. If you want to quicken this process loud yelling and switching shares (does not work, if you got someone in share-lock!) will help.
\HELP [command] 
Displays the help for a command. \help alone will list all commands. Shortform is '??'.
