4.12 YOUR PERSONAL DESCRIPTION

Your personal description is something that you have a great amount of control over. Using the DESCRIBE SELF command, you can set your description. However, your description will tell people what sex you are and what race you are, as well as what you are wearing.

Additionally, the racial text can be expanded upon if the first characters of your description are 'and', 'of', a comma (','), or set inside of parens ('( )'). Using an Ianir, the Anomaly, as an example, His race is "immortal" and He is male. So His description is automatically prepended with "He is a radiant immortal".

Like emotes, you can also prepend some text before the "He is a radiant immortal", using "( )". If you wish the pronoun to be capitalised, you will need to be sure to end the text with a period ('.').

Standard Example
-------------------------------------------------
DESCRIBE SELF His hair is awesome and this description is horrible.

Your description will look like:
He is a radiant immortal. His hair is awesome and this description is
horrible.


Example using 'and'
-------------------------------------------------
DESCRIBE SELF and is a large, burly, and exceptionally hairy person.

Your description will look like:
He is a radiant immortal and is a large, burly, and exceptionally hairy person.

Example using 'of'
-------------------------------------------------
DESCRIBE SELF of unusually large size.

Your description will look like:
He is a radiant immortal of unusually large size.


Example using comma (',')
-------------------------------------------------
DESCRIBE SELF , glowing with divine radiance.

Your description will look like:
He is a radiant immortal, glowing with divine radiance.


Example using ( )
-------------------------------------------------
DESCRIBE SELF (A large, burly, and exceptionally hairy person stands before you.) His hair is awesome and this description is horrible.

Your description will look like:
A large, burly, and exceptionally hairy person stands before you. He is a radiant immortal. His hair is awesome and this description is horrible.


Please use good taste when writing your description. Further, please remember
that adding clothes to your description will look silly, as they may
contradict with what you are, in reality, wearing.
