Monarchs and level 2 and above Officers can designate a member of their allegiance to act as its speaker. They can set and change the speaker at any time (regardless of whether they are online or not) by using the command.
/allegiance officer <add/set> <level 1> <name>
The monarch and level 2+ officers may also remove the current speaker without setting a new one with the command:
/allegiance officer <remove> <name>
These two commands are only usable by the those with the appropriate powers. However, all players in an allegiance may see who the speaker and officers for their allegiance currently are with the command:
/allegiance officer list
The monarch and his or her speakers (level 1 officer) can broadcast allegiance-wide messages to everyone in the allegiance. Each of these persons is limited to ten broadcasts per day. The monarch cannot get around this limit by appointing a new speaker -- the new speaker “inherits” the number of broadcasts that the old speaker made. A monarch or speaker can make an allegiance-wide broadcast using the command:
The allegiance chat channel can be used by all members of the allegiance to speak with each other.
Message of the Day
Monarchs are able to create a message of the day (MOTD) that their allegiance members can view at any time. The monarch sets the MOTD using the command:
/motd set <message>
The MOTD has the same limit on length that any message typed into the chat box does. The monarch can clear the MOTD using the command:
Only the monarch can set and clear the MOTD. However, any player in an allegiance may view the MOTD using the command:
In addition, the MOTD (if there is one) displays at logon.
A patron can chat with all of his or her vassals at once using the command /v <message>. Co-vassal chat now gives a similar ability to the vassals. Players may chat with their patrons and all of their patrons' other vassals (their co-vassals) using the command:
/c <message> Note that the patron in this triangle should respond with /v <message>, because if he uses /c he will then be talking to his patron and co-vassals.</font>
