Communicating

There are many commands available to communicate with other players including: say, tell, yell, shout, speak, whisper, emote, emoteto, [Lines] and mudMail.  For languages, you only know your own races language to start and need to study before you will understand other languages. You can study at the sage who is 2n,e,s from the Keiron [].

For the examples below:
Bob - Your character's name.
Marvin - Secondary player's name (needed for some commands)
Output - What the other player(s) will see.
Farsi - One of the languages in ShadowMUD
