What are the different talk channels in game/how do I change channel?
Thain enables you to speak on all NWN channels except Shout. The allowed ones are: Whisper, Talk, Party, and DM. If you click in the lower-left of your game screen on the word "Talk" then you can change to another channel. To only change the channel for the text you are about to type precede the text with the "/" and the channel abbreviation (given in parentheses below).
(/t) Talk text is the most common, and is used to talk to people in your vicinity.

Please note DMs all receive party messages as well, so please keep OOC chat to a minimum and don't be offended if a DM asks you to quiet down a little.

Use this channel to report bugs, player griefing, or ask any questions you have about Thain. You can also use it for IC actions, like praying to gods or even speaking the first line of a conversation to an NPC. But please don't spam this channel - if no DM responds then don't repeatedly ask.

The Shout channel cannot be used by players under any circumstances. DMs will use it to warn of server restarts or very occasionally for server wide events.
(/t or /tp) Tells aren't a channel as such since you have to specify the sole recipient of your message. As a person-to-person communiqu
