A few of you have seen these, but in the next update this system will be available for players to buy the quill and parchments at the General Vendors. Parchments come in varying "Maximum Length"s and prices. So I thought I'd give everyone a little sneak peek and perhaps a chance for them to ask questions or study how to use the system. Yes we're quite aware of many of the possibilities this opens up, but feel free to discuss yours. :) GMs can also rename placeables and items (with a few restrictions). Pankoki has made some rather splendid screen shots to demonstrate some of the functionality. Titling Your Parchment Adding a Header New Line and Some Text Quick Command For Date and Location Horizontal Rule of The Letter "o" Another Header Undo and Delete Your Name and Date The commands I've listed below are also on the Quill's description in game. Notes:
[*]Use the quill upon the object you will be editting. Syntax for the commands follow.
[*]Placing editted items on your ox pack will wipe your changes.
[*]You only need to use the quill once, it works the same as the language ears, requiring a voice.
[*]You can use the ~ on any channel.
[*]You can not ever repeat the same command, the system will not "hear" a repeated command.
