    Eternal Realms uses a channel-based chat system to communicate effectively throughout the world.
    Each chat message is prefixed with an abbreviated representation of the channel the message was broadcast from.

    Chat formatting example

    All server channels are actively monitored by staff at all times.

    Channels

    Global Channel - G

    The Global Channel is the default channel accessible to everyone in the server, regardless of your world. It is generally used for conversations between members of different outposts, however anyone in any world can see it.
    Usage: /chat global

    Local Channel - L

    The Local Channel allows you to talk to players nearby. You can speak to players within 128 blocks of you as it is intended for outposts/events where players may be grouped up.
    Usage: /chat local

    Group Channel - GR

    The Group Channel allows players in a party to chat amonst each other. It is commonly done between three or more players for a private chat channel. Only members of the same group can hear you.
    Usage: /chat group

    Supporter Channel - S

    The Supporter Channel is available to all players who have an active subscription with Eternal Realms. This channel is universal, meaning it is accessible from all worlds on any server.
    Usage: /chat supporter

    Private Messages

    Private Messaging is server-wide, meaning you can communicate to people on other servers without having to join their server. Clicking on a player's name in chat will automatically start and move you to a private channel where all messages will be directed to that user.

    • /tell <player> - Start a private conversation with the specified player
    • /tell <player> <message> - Send a single message to the specified player
    • /reply <message> - Reply to your most recent incoming private message

    Emotes

    These chat emotes are automatically formatted when you use them in chat.
