Dot Commands are are used for many various things, giving the user access to options and other helpful tidbits that are not found in the default interface for Ultima Online. While most other games might use either a /command or a [command on Pangaea it is .command so for those new to Pangaea but used to either Ultima on other platforms or other online games in general, this might be a little tricky to get used to but it isn't a huge hurdle to overcome.

Counselor Commands

A Counselor is a normal player who has decided to help out the staff by answering some of the lesser questions mostly to do with game play leaving the more serious questions for the Game Masters and Admins to answer. This being said, they have a set of dot commands that allow them to more easily help out those who are in need of assistance.
