All of these commands send messages to other players. GTELL sends a
message to all of the characters in your group, wherever they are, even
if they are sleeping or stunned or dying. ';' is a synonym for GTELL.
You can GTELL no matter what your own condition is (i.e., sleeping,
fighting, mortally wounded).
SAY sends a message to all awake players in your room. The single
quote (') is a synonym for SAY.
TELL sends a message to one awake player anywhere in the world.
REPLY sends a message to the last player who sent you a TELL. REPLY will
work even if you can't see the player, and without revealing their
identity. This is handy for talking to invisible or switched immortal
You must be awake to SAY or TELL, but you can still REPLY while sleeping.
