Tell is used to tell someone something who is not in the room with you. It will tell the player the message in the following manner. If you are Drakkos and you type 'tell draconius bing', draconius will receive the message. If you need to see your previous tells, you can use the 'htell' command.

Drakkos tells you: bing

This is the main way of communicating privately with people - no-one else but the target will see your message.

The reply option to tell allows you to reply to the last person (or persons) to tell you something. The people that told you is remembered for 15 minutes. Please remember that this is a very dangerous way to chat and it is way open to mischats from someone dropping in a random tell to you on the way. This can be got around with 'tell replylock', which will lock a person (or persons) into the people you send a tell reply to.

The @ can be used to use a specific adverb to the tell. For example using tell ceres @happily Hello will cause the recipient to be told that you tell them 'happily'. If you do not wish to receive the emotions in tells sent to you, you can set your 'tell' information to be brief and it will cut this out.

Note that '#<language>' cannot be used with this command, since tells are out-of-character communication, and hence language-independent.
