Tynian: Creating new socials (revised)
Fri Sep 21 09:39:50 2001
To: all
I don't mind adding socials, so long as you supply the text, and I like it.

New social ideas should be listed on the idea list, in the format listed
below.

A social consists of several lines of text. Below is the text for the
'applaud' social. I have numbered the lines. Please use this format, as
I will want to cut-and paste the social. You may either include or leave
out the line numbers. Note that all lines are quoted, and all lines except
the last end with a comma.

1. "applaud",
2. "Clap, clap, clap.",
3. "$n gives a round of applause.",
4. "You applaud $S actions.",
5. "$n applauds $N's actions.",
6. "$n gives you a round of applause. You MUST'VE done something good!",
7. "You applaud yourself. Boy, are we conceited!",
8. "$n gives $mself a standing ovation. Boy, are we conceited!"

Line 1 indicates the social command.

Line 2 is what you see when you use the applaud social, but do not specify
a 'victim'.

Line 3 is what displays to everyone in the room, if no victim is displayed.
The character's name is substituted for $n.

Line 4 displays to you, when a victim is specified (e.g. applaud bob). 'his',
'her', or 'its' is substituted for $S, depending on gender.

Line 5 displays to the room, when a victim is specified. The victim's name
is substituted for $N.

Line 6 displays to the victim.

Line 7 displays when you do the social on yourself (e.g. applaud self).

Line 8 displays to the room. 'him', 'her', or 'it' is substituted for $m.

Tynian: Substitution codes for socials (revised)
Fri Sep 21 12:08:47 2001
To: all
The following string codes work for socials.

$n - The name of the character doing the social.

$N - The name of the victim, if applicable.

$e - Translates to 'he', 'she', or 'it', depending on the sex of the
character doing the social.

$E - Translates to 'he', 'she', or 'it', depending on the sex of the
victim.

$m - Translates to 'him', 'her', or 'it', depending on the sex of the
character doing the social.

$M - Translates to 'him', 'her', or 'it', depending on the sex of the
victim.

$s - Translates to 'his', 'her', or 'its', depending on the sex of the
character doing the social.

$S - Translates to 'his', 'her', or 'its', depending on the sex of the
victim.

In general, lowercase letters correspond with the character doing the
social, and uppercase point to the victim, if a victim was specified with
the social. Also, the male pronoun gives a hint as to which letter to use.
Look at the last letter. He = $e, Him = $m, His = $s.
