Topic: Boards

A lot of information conveyed between wizards and players alike is done on
boards.  You may find many examples of these boards in town, as well as
scattered throughout the realms.  The following is a list of the functions
available with boards.

The available commands to this board are:

You may use standard mud ansi when composing your notes.  To use ansi, you
must surround text with the appropriate ansi code.  All other words will be
in normal non-ansi color (eg: non-bold white letters on black background).

Mud ansi codes are written as follows:

\@yellow:This text will be yellow\@

\@hicyan:This text will be in highlighted cyan\@

In other words, between a pair of \@ signs, you must specify the color,
add a colon, and the text you wish to be that color.  In order to actually
print a \@ to the screen in the middle of an ansi code, you must use a \\@.
If your text isn't inside an ansi code, you can just write \@ as normal.
To print \\@, you have to write \\\@, and so on.

Please read 'help ansi' and use the command 'ansi colors' to give you a list
of viable color names.
