- Colors in Messages -

Use the following tags to change the color of text in the chat box:


Replace the letters with hexidecimal values ranging between 00 and FF for all three color values. For example:


Black can be written as 000000. Experiment as needed with other values. Hexidecimal numbers are measured using the numbers 1-9 as in decimal format and then the letters A-F to represent numbers 10-16. The number 17 is then written as 10, and the number 255 is written as FF.

WARNING! Using this tag to alter the color of your text as a means to impersonate a CSR, GM, or LET character is against the Guidelines for Player Conduct. Use it sparingly and only when necessary.

- Text Formatting -

Text can be italicized by enclosing it in the following tags:


The tags will not appear in the chat box, even while typing them. The italicization will be applied once the final tag is entered.

To use bold formating, us the {b} and {/b} tags.
