Desdaemona Commands

Along with keeping the Inn's accounts and slaves in line, Desdaemona also functions as the supervisor for many functions in the Inn. Upon a character's arrival in the Inn, it is a good idea to register with her (use the command ' /msg Desdaemona !login <password> <nickname> '). This 'logging in' allows Des to keep track of a character for advancement purposes, and ties an IRC nickname to a specific entry in our character registry. Desdaemona responds to the following commands:

Please note that where we specify <...> in commands what we mean is that you subsitute the <...> with the type of information suggested (they are just a 'placeholder' for the parameter), for example <password> means change the <password> thisismypassword, iamtoosexyformyshirt, or whatever your password is. You do not use the < and > signs themselves. Likewise, any parameters specified in as [...] are optional and, again, if you want to specify them you do not use the [ and ] characters in the command.
