Monument ShadowMUD

HelpPlayer General • Families

Families on ShadowMUD are strictly a role-playing aspect of the game. You 
will not receive any special powers, rooms, or objects for being a 
member of a family but for a family line. However, your title will display the  
surname of your family. The surname will appear whereever your title is normally seen. 
 
Each family is headed by a single player (usually the founder), who has the 
ability to <add> and <boot> other players from the family. Only a High 
Mortal may start a family. To join a family you must be at least 6th level. 
A player may <leave [family name]> at any time. If the leader leaves the 
family, it will be disbanded. The cost for creating a family is 2500 copper. 
It costs 500 copper for a new family member to join. 
 
When creating a new family name, keep in mind that it must be unique from 
all other family names. Use <list> to see the listing of current family 
names in use. Family names may only be one word and with the exception of ' 
and -, must only contain letters. Be very careful when entering your family 
name, because it will be displayed in your title -exactly- as it is 
entered. Use <record [name]> to start a new family. 
 
The family leader can use <change [player]> to give leadership to another 
member of the family. Should the family leader leave the family, the family 
will be dissolved at the court's earliest convenience. Any eligible member 
of the family may use this command to claim leadership prior to final 
dissolution. 
 
Families are created at the Kieron court house east of the town square. 
 
When you join a family you will gain access to the family chat line, to use 
simply use <family [message]> as with any standard line but only your family 
members will see the message. <list family> will list all family members 
even those not online. You can disable the line like any standard chat line. 
 
NOTE: The leader of a family must be at least 20th level. 
 
NOTE: Family names are not automatically capitalized! This allows names 
such as d'Abo, al'Rasha, etc to be created. Do NOT use this feature to 
create silly (or offensive) names. Not only will you lose the name, but 
further action may be taken by LAW.
