You mud may have more or less commands than ours, but this book will give
you a good overall basis of commands available to immortals.  Ours is in
need of much updating with all the new commands that have went in but this
includes most of them.  I hope you see some redeeming value in this

*This handbook contains explanations and guidelines to for immortal
commands that are available to the immortals of Eclipse.
*You can be fired from your position for the abuse of ANY of these
commands at the discretion of one of the implementors.
*Some commands in this book are available to all gods, but some
are based on level and may not be available to you.

ADVANCE advance <victim> <level>

Advance moves a player to a new level.  If used to promote a player to an
immortal level, and if you have the autowiz program installed, the wizlist
and immlist will automatically be recreated.

advance Destiny 34

AT at <location|person|object|mob> <command>

At can be used to perform an action in a location other than where you are
standing.  The first argument can be a virtual room number or the name of a
character or object.  The remainder of the line is passed to the command

at 3001 look
at fido kill fido
at 3.corpse get all corpse

BAN UNBAN ban [<'ALL' | 'NEW' | 'SELECT'> <site>]

Ban prevents the specified login type (new, all, selected) from loging
into the mud from the specified site.  Unban removes the ban.

ban new


This command provides current machine time ie. the time in the real world
at the game server.

DC dc <descriptor number>

Dc (DisConnect) is used to disconnect a socket.  If used on a playing socket,
the player will lose his/her link, but, unlike PURGE, will not extract the
player or dump the player's inventory on the ground.


echo <message> sends system message to all in the room.
qecho <message> sends system message to all with quest toggled on.
gecho <message> sends system message to all in the game.
send <victim> <message> sends system message to <victim> only.

FORCE force <player|mob> <victim> <command>

Force forces a character, either monster or player, to perform a certain
action.  FORCE ALL forces everyone in the game; FORCE ROOM forces everyone in
your room.

force fido drop meat
force all save
force room look fido

FREEZE THAW freeze <victim> -- thaw <victim>

Freeze prevents a character from issuing ANY command, including quit.
This means don't freeze someone and expect them to talk to you.  Thaw
unfreezes them.


goto <location> will transport you to the place you specify.
trans <victim> will transfer <victim> to the place you are.
teleport <victim> <location> will transport <victim> to <location>.

go 3001
go Destiny
trans Destiny
teleport Destiny 3001


This is the command to read this book.  It is the first command you
should use when you become immortal.


A toggle which allows you to see:

   Invisible people and objects
   Hidden people
   Dark rooms

NOHASSLE nohassle

Nohassle will prevent agro mobs from attacking you.  All imms should
have this on at all times.

NOTITLE notitle <player name>

Notitle will prevent a player from using the title command.  It is used
when a player has a title which is offensive or impropper.
When you notitle someone, the title they have will remain and be
unchangable.  Force them to title (so the default title is there)
before you notitle them.

NOWIZ nowiz

Allows you to hear or ignore messages coming over the wizline.

PAGE page <name|all> <message>

This will toggle the nameserver_is_slow setting, you will never use
this either.
