Here are some very basic commands to get you started. To say something to others in a room, type a double quote, then what you want to say. For example to say "Hi there! I'm new and confused." you would type:
"Hi there! I'm new and confused.
To make your character do some action, for example, smile. You type:
If your name was Joe, everyone in the room would see "Joe smiles."
To send a private message to another person (who does not have to be at the same location in the MUX that you are at) you can "page" them. For example, if you wanted to send the message "What are you doing for dinner tonight?" privately to a member named JimBob, you would type:
page JimBob=What are you doing for dinner tonight?
To move, you type the name of an exit. Most exits have a short form listed between less than and greater than signs. You can type that short form (without the less than and greater than signs) to save yourself a lot of typing.
