Hey, used to be a player, but I've moved on from this MUD for now. I'm currently programming my own MUD system in Lua, and I'm working on the emote command. I remember a neat feature of sindome's emote system, where verbs and pronouns could be translated from first to third person. e.g. ".walk towards Bob" becomes "You walk towards Bob", "Alice walks towards Bob" and "Alice walks towards you".
Would any of the admins/coders be able to tell me where you got a verb list from?
