VC Command System:

With the addition of the 1.69 patch to NWN, Aenea has introduced it's Variable Chat command system (or VC for short). This is a system that takes note of what is typed into the chat bar in the Talk, Party, Whisper, Shout, or DM channel and runs certain commands or sets certain options for your character.

The following list shows most of the available commands (in cyan text) and describes what their functions are. Some commands become available only for certain classes or those with particular items. VC commands are preceded by a two-character prefix (generally two semi-colons ";;") which tells the system that what follows is intended as a VC command. The prefix can be entered as either ";;" or ";; ". Quotation marks are never used for VC commands.

The VC command system also controls emotes and Out of Character (OOC) talk. Emotes are preceeded by two periods (".."), and OOC talk can be denoted by starting with two forward slashes ("//"). Emote text will appear in the same indigo color as a character's name in the chat window (no need to surround the text with asterisks to set it apart). OOC talk will include the slashes and appear in light blue-gray to set it apart from in character talk. These are optional, but can be helpful for those that want to keep their OOC & IC talk separate.

;;help or vc help - in-game and can't remember how to input one of the VC commands? Just use one of these simple commands.
