This article is about the chat command. For the building, see House.

The /house command allows all pirates within the same house to communicate with one another. This chat is only available when a pirate is in a house, and is the default chat mode. Messages are displayed in the chat window.


The House command has the following syntax:

/house <message> (/ho)

The House command can be combined with the three modifier commands - /think, /shout, and /emote:

/house /think <message>
/house /shout <message>
/house /emote <message>
