# Talker

A talker is an item that gives you access to various channels. You can use them to talk to people (anyone who is listening to the channel).

## Channels

There are several channels, with different purposes. The command "talker channels" will show you which ones you have access to.

Creators have access to channels whether or not they fit the criteria for being on the channel (being in a specific guild, etc.).

### One

One is the channel for general chatter. Everyone has access to it, and it's generally fairly busy.

### Two

Two is for singing, and Sokkard's various stories, and sometimes random chatter as well. Everyone has access to it, but it's not nearly as busy as One.

### Inews

Everyone has access to this channel, which exists for the purpose of discussing the news. Once upon a time news feeds from different sources were shown here.

### Igame

 (Igame) Pit: People use the channel to talk about missions.
(Igame) Nuala: Stallone unless I've got this very wrong it's for people to chat about m...ahh what Pit said
(Igame) Pit: Some may also like to use it to ask for help for quests (spoiler-free plz!) and achievements.
(Igame) Stallone: ahhhh thankd
(Igame) Mauve: And other game stuff.
(Igame) Tomt: Pit any ideas on the etymology?
(Igame) Pit: Mind you, that wasn't what the channel was made for.
(Igame) Shand perks up and listens intently
(Igame) Pit: Originally, this was a channel like quiz, but shared with other MUDs. However, it ended up not really being used, and the connection with other MUDs was dropped, so some players decided to appropriate it.
(Igame) Pit: And turned it into the official missions channel.
(Igame) Pit: While creator stood by and said "hmmmm, let's see whether this clever player-initiative actually *works*"
(Igame) Stallone: then what is intermud
(Igame) Shand: terrible?
(Igame) Stallone is so confused.
(Igame) Pit: And then sometime later we said "you know, we should probably remove the remaining intermud-connections, we keep getting runtimes".
(Igame) Pit: Intermud is for talking to other MUDs.
(Igame) Pit: Igame was for playing games with them.
(Igame) Pit: While inews is for receiving news. That one isn't for talking to other MUDs, though, as they can't hear you.
(Igame) Pit: (Even though we can hear them.)
(Igame) Stallone: we can??? spooky
(Igame) Pit: Well, I don't think those other muds are really using it either.  ;)
(Igame) Stallone: so much unused code and unseen content in the mud sometimes it makes me feel very small
(Igame) Stallone snaps out of it
