When he contacted us I thought he would make a longer more in-depth article. A little surprised this is what came out of it, but hey, exposure is exposure. And plenty of comments on the article already.

Perfect example of someone that doesn't read the signs. :D

The article has caused quite the spike in new players. Try not to scare them away!:)

It is nice to get fresh perspective... does highlight we need to have a look at some of the commands and how they work. I think a lot of us are just used to the experience, but in making some of the basic commands 'smarter' we could retain more new players.

I was new not too long ago. I remember playing for the first time and being amazed with how intuitive all the commands were.

"I want to get this foot from the corpse. I wonder if the santax is 'get foot from corpse.'"
All I am is your Van Gogh; I paint our dreams on the golden coast
I stay up high, flying solo; Don't come too close
I just ghost
I told you I am the new Poe; I sold my soul to the radio
I steal your heart in the shadows; Don't come too close
I just ghost

I'm wondering, can multiple words be make to mean the same thing and be parsed equally fast without issues? For example make get, retrieve, pick (pick up too? that one is weirder I know), et cetera. Depending on how it's implemented it could work well but idk.

Also, maybe there are prompts that can be added here and there like "You try to wear the longsword but realize you are being absurd. You've heard of people that wield them though!"

Yeah that's more like it, and it's causing a massive new layer spike this time!
