but some boards can share the same notes. Each set has a unique name.

Spoken word is the main form of communication on the mud. When you speak,
you speak in your default language, unless you change it with the speak
command. There is no gaurantee that you will not be overheard by people
hiding in the room you are in.
NOTE TO IMMORTALS: Immortals speak languages so that all can understand
them, and they understand all languages spoken as well.
> say how fare thee, drev?
You ask, in english:
"How fare thee, drev?"

When you shout, your voice is heard for a distance of two rooms, no
greater. Shouts are spoken in your default language.

Syntax: smote <text|#code|text>

to insert a verb, smote defaults to regular talking. You may use only
one verb per smote. Where ever you feel it is appropriate, simply
type a # sign followed by one of the verbs in the following list:
say state declare greet hail speak report
remark comment continue chuckle laugh sneer grin
smile exclaim shout yell scream grimace boom
thunder roar storm blare bellow demand warn
advise suggest observe whisper sob sigh coo
