In Akarra, when people talked, the 'prefix' that would be put infront of their speech in the chatbox would always be - Novan says, "This is a great idea.". This is all and good for simple roleplaying purposes, but I think it would be good to have commands like /whisper - Novan whispers, "This is a great idea?" - or /scream - Novan screams, "This is a great idea!". These would be really excellent for roleplaying.

However, it won't be just for roleplaying. the /whisper command would only be heard by people within a small range. The /screams command could have a greater range, but larger gaps between /screams, to reduce spam and lag.

Comments?

Paramir whispers, "Novan, that is a great idea".

Small, simple, yet useful. Sounds good to me. Paramir gets a poke for his clever way of putting it. :P

why not just make it so that when you end a sentence with !, it says 'person' shouts

and when you end with .. say,,. ";" or some other good symbol, it says you whisper it.

Sure thewreck, whatever floats your boat, you or Kinten will be the ones coding it in. I was just suggesting.. :]

But, having /whisper is alot easier and logical to remember than ";".
