There was one example. I cannot remember the precise syntax, but I'm sure someone here could. At the time I last took an interest in such things, there was a (then undocumented) command that would allow you to pull a blade from certain sheaths (e.g. a wrist sheath) quietly into an equipped states. Last time I looked, this was not explained in the documentation.
It seemed like kind of a niche command, for the reason that it's principle application seemed to be if you were shadowing someone, and decided to go for a backstab, but hadn't yet thought to equip a blade. Properly executed, you wouldn't risk breaking the "hide" effect and I don't even think it produced a visible echo.
Sorry that I don't remember the syntax, but I'm sure someone here does. I'm posting this one for the simple reason that I found it baffling at the time that we as players had been meant to discover this simply by goofing around with the command parser.
Way back in the day gather used to be an open command meaning anyone could do it. I once used it in Luirs and got in trouble by Ness after they killed me as a sorc. I asked him why it wasn't a locked command or whatever and he said it's purposefully designed this way. Eventually they locked it.

Flip weapon. Some weapons, at least one staff that I've seen, you can type flip <weapon> while holding it, and it becomes a club, or an axe/slashing weapon. Something like that. It's not immediately obvious how to do it by reading the desc and I don't recall ever seeing flip used for anything but coins. Someone told me OOCly to try "flip staff". It was kind of neat.

lechuck: most players who can string a sentence together have left for games where such a skill is actually recognized as an asset

mehtastic: The amount of Armageddon refugees I've run into on MUSHes is staggering. You can tell because it takes them 5 minutes to write "pose nods" around players who are belting out a paragraph every 2 minutes, then you ask them OOC and yep, they fled Arm.

mehtastic: On the flipside, I've seen a few former Armers in places like Arx and After Earth (which is an RPI) who are definitely there because Armageddon's quality dipped in the past 5 or so years. They usually reference Tuluk's closue as the reason why they left

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
