Details of Allegiance Communication


With the opening of our June event, "Chains of Command," allegiance members will be able to take advantage of several new communication features: allegiance speakers, allegiance-wide broadcasts, messages of the day, and co-vassal chat. These features will provide members an even greater ability to keep in touch with one another and stay up-to-date on allegiance events -- allowing for even further conquests to be made in Dereth!

Allegiance Speakers
Monarchs can now designate a member of their allegiance to act as its speaker. There may only be one speaker at a time, and the monarch can set and change the speaker at any time using the command:

@speaker set <player>

This command removes the old speaker and promotes the new speaker to the office. The monarch may also remove the current speaker without setting a new one with the command:

@speaker clear

These two commands are only usable by the monarch. However, all players in an allegiance may see who the speaker for their allegiance currently is with the command:


Allegiance-Wide Broadcasts
The monarch and his or her speaker can broadcast allegiance-wide messages to everyone in the allegiance. Each of these persons is limited to three 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:

@a <message>

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:

@motd clear

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.

Co-Vassal Chat
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>
