Description:In those rare cases where you need to communicate an OOC message to an entire room you should place parentheses around your words so that people know they are not being expressed by your character. There is a specific OOC room that is set up for these interactions. Excessive use of Out Of Character comments in any other room where role playing is taking place is against the rules, and can result in administrative action. There are two basic ways that your character can interact with others in a chat room. There is dialogue, where you can have them say or communicate something to someone else, and then there are actions where you actually cause them to physically do something. In a roleplaying chat room, action is generally indicated by saying exactly what your character is doing, and then placing those words inside of opening and closing action marks. There are a variety of symbols that are used by people to indicate that a phrase is an action. The important thing is that the words get marked off, and separated from any other writing so that people know an action is taking place.
