Syntax Guide

The following tables use a specific typographical convention. This typographical convention is not used in game. It is used here to clarify syntax.

A word preceded with a slash (i.e. "/example") is a command.

Any word after a command written in plain text (i.e. "example") is a set required parameter.

Any word after a command written in italics (i.e. "example") is a variable required parameter. You may use any word or phrase you like here.

Any word after a command written between two curly brackets (i.e. "{example}" or "{example}") is an optional parameter. If it is also italicised, the parameter is variable.

Any words separated with a 'pipe' (|) and surrounded by square brackets (ie. "[apple | pear | peach]") are choices. Only one of them may be chosen. For instance, "/example apple" is valid, whilst "/example apple peach" is not. Once again, if it is italicised the parameter is variable.
