Well the builtin way for commands that only work in your specials....
Add the command to the interpreter list but as do_not_here

Everywhere but where your mob/obj/room is, player will get the not here
message, or you can edit do_not_here to return a Adfgdfg. message like
typing nonsens gets you.

Then in your special you check for:
  if (CMD_IS("magic_word")) {
    doit .....
    return 1;
  } else {
    return 0;

magic_word being whatever your special command happens to be. Not what
you want im sure, but does what you want and is already a standard part
of circle, like the practice command for example. Anywhere put in front
of a guild mob, do_not_here is called.
