USE:

  1. Use Ask when you want to send a question to a particular character.
  2. Use 'ask -h' to replay the most recent 10 ask channel messages.

Although use of the Ask command is identical to that of the Tell command, Ask is considered more polite when asking questions, because it allows players who don't want to be interrupted by questions to turn off their Ask Channel.

The Ask command is akin to telepathy. Ask is completely independent of the laws of RL physics: it doesn't matter where the character is you send your Ask to: if they're listening, they'll hear you anywhere. We're not sure we're going to leave it this way, so enjoy it for now!

Note that Ask crosses World boundaries. You can Ask anyone, whether they're presently in TriadCity, Midgaard, Dungeon, or any future World within the SmartMonsters Universe.

Note that certain TriadCity NPCs require the Ask command, if you wish to converse with them. Tiresias is one example.

Lastly, you can use 'ask -h' to replay the most recent 10 ask channel messages.
