The Basics ...

  • You control your actions in Dragon's Gate through the use of COMMANDS. When you see a prompt (>) appear on your screen, you may enter your commands.

  • Commands are simple sentences that say, "I want to ." Since the "I want to" is assumed, you only need to give the command.

  • The most basic command is a simple verb.

  • Example: >SMILE would display:
    Cheshire smiles.

  • Some commands consist of a verb and object. These are used to manipulate things you may find in the world.

  • Example: >GET SWORD. You get the sword.

  • More complex commands may require a verb, preposition, adjectives and multiple objects. It is a good idea to learn all you can about the commands you will use frequently. Circumstances can change very quickly, and your familiarity with commands may mean the difference between life and death in Dragon's Gate.

  • Feel free to play around with commands! You cannot harm Dragon's Gate, and you may discover that some commands will function in unusual ways, depending upon the situation in which you use them. Experimentation is a necessary and fun part of exploring a new world.

  • Format ...

  • Your commands will only be understood if the proper format, or syntax, is used. In describing the syntax of each command, the following symbols will be used:

  • < > Angle brackets enclose a required identifier. These indicate that Dragon's Gate expects to see something specific, such as a person's name or an item.

    Format: HUG [target] Example: >hug Merlin. Square brackets [ ] enclose optional information. Specific information may be typed, but is not necessary.

    Format: SPEAK [language] Example: >speak >speak Anthian

    | The pipe indicates a choice of items. Only one of the choices may be used in the command.

    Format: CONTACT [all | target]

    Example: >contact all Hello
    >contact Merlin Hello (Merlin would hear a private message saying, [your name] thinks to you, "hello")

    Braces { } enclose a choice of items. One or more of the items must be present.

  • The symbols themselves (such as the angle brackets < >) should not be typed. They are only used here to indicate variables in the commands.

  • In giving a command, any combination of upper and lower case letters may be used. Many optional words, such as articles (e.g. A, THE) and prepositions (e.g. IN, ON) are allowed. They may occur anywhere in the command statement except as the first word, which must be a command word.

  • Example:
    >get the sword = >get sword

  • A few commands require articles or prepositions. These are noted in the syntax of the specific command. If multiple copies of an item are present, you can specify a particular one by using a number before the item name.

  • Example: >get 2 sword
    Or >attack 3 ork.

  • In the first example, you would pick up the second sword displayed. In the second example, you would attack the third ork.


  • Format: HELP [category|subject]

    Examples: >help
    >help all - lists all the commands available under help.
    >help combat
    >help attack

  • The first example will list the categories, while the second example will list the commands available under combat. Finally, the third example will give you specific information about the attack command.

  • Specific Commands ...

  • An alphabetical list of commands, with references to the proper category, may be found at the end of this section. The commands are broken into eight categories: Combat, Communication, Information, Magick and Healing, Manipulation, Movement, Special, and Atmosphere/Self-Explanatory.

  • Each command is described in the appropriate category with format, examples and synonyms (alternate ways to input a command). Synonyms follow the same format as the command.

  • Most commands may be abbreviated to three letters, with the exception of commands that share the same three letters with another command, such as SPEak and SPElls. You'll see some of these abbreviations in the examples. NOTE: Be careful with abbreviations. If you are adventuring with Robard, and to attack a robber type ATT ROB, you may unintentionally harm your companion.

  • Only certain classes of adventurers use some commands, and some are learned as an adventurer gains experience in Dragon's Gate.

  • Communication Commands ...

    To speak, type an apostrophe (') or quotation mark (") followed by your message.

  • Format: '[text]
    Example: >'Hello there.
    Cheshire says, "Hello there."
    >"How are you?
    Cheshire asks, "How are you?"

  • You may direct your conversation to a specific person in the room by beginning your spoken text with the name of the target and a comma, followed by what you want to say. This is a way to answer publicly in a way everyone can tell who you are speaking to.

  • Example: >’Cheshire, I am well.
    Merlin says to Cheshire, “I am well."
    Synonym: " or SAY.

  • ACT
    Allows you to publicly perform any action you describe. This command is purely theatrical and has no direct effect upon the environment or anyone nearby. Note that whatever you type after act will be reproduced exactly as you type it, preceded with your name and enclosed by parentheses.

  • Format: ACT [text]
    Example: >act nods politely
    (Cheshire nods politely.)
    >act yawns... (Merlin yawns..)
    Synonym: EMOTE.

    In the event you become trapped in a room with no exits due to a bug or database damage, this command will move you to the nearest 'safe' room. If the use of this command does nothing, then there is an exit from the room you just haven't found yet. Some rooms are intentionally designed with no exit and appeal will not work. These rooms are for the more unsavory personages who are being jailed for some infraction. If you are there, you will know why.

  • Format: APPEAL
    Example: >appeal
    Synonym: None.

    Will contact any online Elder or Guide. This command should be used when you are faced with a minor emergency (e.g. the room you are in vanishes, your character doesn't respond to your commands, etc.). Generally, any strange event that appears linked to system bugs or failure is a good reason to use ASSIST. You need only assist once. Your assist request remains current until you're helped or you exit the game. When you use this command, you might receive notice that there are no Elders available to help. Please give the Elders a few minutes to respond. There are several circumstances that will cause the game to say that none are available when they actually are. In the event you no longer require aid, use the cancel option to remove your assist request.

  • Format: ASSIST [CANCEL]
    Example: >assist
    >assist cancel
    Synonym: None.

  • BUG
    Allows players to report suspected bugs during role-play. This command should be used any time the player encounters a bug. If the problem affects you, you may still want to use ASSIST to contact an Elder or Guide. But BUG adds the information to a special log file for handling by the Elders.

  • Format: BUG [text]
    Example: >bug When I entered the bank, my talon sword disappeared.
    Synonym: None.

    Allows long distance communication via mental messages. Only the message sender must have telepathic powers functioning. All members of the Psycian race have access to this command at all times. Access by other races is only gained through use of a special rune-spell.

    Example 1: >contact Merlin Good evening, Merlin!
    (The CONTACT ROOM command shows your thoughts echoing through the entire room you are in.
    Example 2: Example 3: >CONTACT ALL Good evening!
    Synonym: None.

  • LINK
    Used by Dragons, Psycians, and Secians to send esp messages to everyone of that race. Notice that LINK will not always reach persons in distant areas.

  • Format: LINK [message]
    Example: >link I could use some help in the Arena!
    Synonym: None.

  • NOD
    Although usable by anyone, nod is of particular use to races that don't speak Common very well.

  • Format: NOD, NOD [yes | no]
    Example: >nod
    >nod yes
    >nod no.
    Synonym: None.

    Note: DO NOT USE THIS COMMAND UNLESS ASKED TO DO SO. Sends a message to all Elders currently in the game. This is best used for questions, comments, etc. that require Elder attention but not necessarily Elder interference or attendance. When using this command, you might get a message back saying no Elders are currently available. Even if you do, don't log off immediately; sometimes there are circumstances that will cause the game to tell you none are available when someone really is. This has been expanded to allow you to now report to a particular Elder. Guides cannot see general reports, only those specifically directed to them.

  • Format: REPORT [to ]
    Example: >report Can I ask you a quick question?
    >report to Ferragus I think I've found a bug.

After using SPEAK, everything you say will be translated into the specified language. Only those who can also speak that language will understand you. If no language is specified, you will speak Common. Type INFO LANGUAGES to see what languages you can currently speak and/or understand.

    Magick and Healing Commands. ...

  • Some races and classes will be able to work with the magick of Dragon's Gate. Be warned; magick is tricky! Magickal commands will function only when you have fulfilled certain conditions (See the section on Magick above.) Some commands also require special items to be readied or available. Much of the fun of magickal manipulation lies in discovering the key(s) to making a spell work and deducing what the spell does. We leave these discoveries to each individual. See the section on Life and Death in Dragon's Gate for more information on magick. Some healing commands are based on divine magick, and others are empathic. Care should be taken so as not to bring fatal harm to the healer.
