concepts/soul_abbreviations  Nanvaent Player Help

Souls in Nanvaent can help convey various emotions to other players such as
the fact you "agree" with them, or "grin" or shake your head to say "no".

Most souls take the following formats:
        > agree
        You agree.

    <soul> <person>
        > agree paul
        You agree with Paul.

    <soul> <person> <text>
        > agree paul since it works
        You agree with Paul since it works.

In place of <text> there are several built-in abbreviations that you can
use. For example:
        > agree hap
        You agree happily.

        > agree paul hap
        You agree with Paul happily.

Below is a list of some common abbreviations. This is not a complete list,
as it changes often.

Be warned! Sometimes you will accidentally use one of these abbreviations
without meaning to! My favourites:
        > hug paul lo
        You hug Paul longingly.
        (expected: You hug Paul lo.)

        > nod s
        You nod sexily.
        (expected: You nod sadly.)

Also use a "?" for a totally random abbreviation. Use with caution, as
Brother Bayard found to his peril!
        > grin usurper ?
