We may not have all commands listed here but feel free to ask in-game.

There are several in game commands a player can use either by typing it into the "tab" bar (usually with a /) or by pming the npcserver. These commands can do a variety of things from warping the player out of a wall, to sending messages to party members, to providing the player information about the game.

Basic Commands

These commands may be used via the "tab" bar to change various in game situations. "unstick me" or "unstuck me" (if the player is still for 30 seconds this can be used to warp them back to osl.) "/charselect" (when in a no pk area this can be used to switch to another character.) "/clear" (clears the shout/party/ctrade/tell text off of the screen.)

"/clearlogs" (clears the text in the player's F2 logs, if the player turns off the automatic clearing of logs and doesn't clear them manually periodically the game may lag or crash.)

"/creset" (when used in osl/Online Start Local this can be used to reset a character's levels. This is usually used by players who make a mistake when leveling or change their minds about a build. After it is used once it will cost a varying number of gold depending on the number of levels the player wishes to reset.If your account status is gold then it doesn't cost any gold at all (You can only creset to a prestige class if level 60 has been obtained on that specific class.)

"/help" (gives a list of help topics.)

"/help *topic*" (gives a list of player commands for that topic.)

"/help macro" (gives a short explaination to the player on how to use macros.)

":icons" (brings up the icons menu, allowing the player to see available icons and pick one to wear.)

"/keymapping" (allows the player to open a menu, allowing them to reassign normal keys. Not to be confused with assigning macros)

"/lookup *item*" (allows the player to see a description and the stats of the item/armor/weapon)

"/macro" (opens macro menu)

"/openpm" (opens any pms viewable by the player, including waiting: private, mass, and staff messages.)

"/oncd" (allows a player to set other macros after a spell's cooldown has started. For example a Timeweaver could set Haste 2 to also cast Nova Cannon while Haste 2 is cooling down.)

"/reset" (a free reset that brings the player back down to level 1 and lets them pick a new class without using an essence or losing their current race. All levels will be permenantly lost when used but it can be used to reset to a prestige class.)


"/roll" (When in a party, rolls a dice on the party channel from 1-100)

"/reconnect" (disconnects the player from the server and then reconnects them. Possibly helping with lag, glitches, or new graphics.)

"setnick *name*" (sets your nickname/display name to something else, as long as it isn't too long. Note that placing a * in front of the name will only work if it is the player's username)

"set respawn" (When said in osl or a fort, allows the player to change where they respawn from)

"/signreset" (While in Osl, reset the player's zodiac sign and all stats linked to that sign for 50,000 gold)

Shouts, Trade Chats, and TellsEdit Shouts, Trade Chats, and Tells are all used to allow players to communicate over long distances for various reasons. The Shouts are supposed to be for pretty much anything, tells are to speak to one person individually, and the Trade Chat is supposed to be for the exchange of items or gold. (Though this is not enforced by the staff.) Spamming on any of these chats may be result in being blocked by other players or banned by staff members. Commands are:

It is called "Zodiac Dev" and is commonly used by staff members to test out skills or items before adding them to the actual game. The following is a list of commands that will only work on that server.

"/createitem *item*" (allows the player to instantly recieve whatever item was specified. Can be used to obtain Weapons with Prefixes and Suffixes, but does not seem to work on most Event exclusive items.)
