You can talk out loud to others in the current room by using "say", for example:
say Hello everyone! You say, "Hello everyone!"
Everyone else sees:
Freddie says, "Hello everyone!"
Since "say" is used so often, you will probably want to use the abbreviated form, namely:
Putting a double-quote at the start of the line is shorthand for "say". You do not need to use a closing quote.
You can also "emote" by using "pose", like this:
pose looks around and sighs quietly. Freddie looks around and sighs quietly.
The "pose" command, which is also used a lot, can be abbreviated as a colon:
:smiles. Freddie smiles.
If you want no space after your name, use a semicolon, like this:
;'s watch beeps Freddie's watch beeps
Everyone in the same room with you will hear what you say, and see what you pose.
