Voice of God
The Voice of God will add an action button that will allow you to enter a message to Speak. The same result can be achieved by talking normally with a .~ or :~ prefix.
When speaking, you'll talk with a HEAVY TONE, emitting an ominous sound.
Listeners, which means any mob not deaf or dead in view range, will react to certain codewords. For example, when including STOP in the message, they'll be stunned for a few seconds. Only one codeword is used per message. Including a codeword will increase the Voice of God's cooldown. More powerful commands, such as stuns, will have a longer cooldown, while joke commands have a lower cooldown. Even messages with no commands have a 15-second cooldown.
The Voice of God's effects have a multiplier, which is affected by a few circumstances:
- Chaplains gain a 2x on every command they give, being used to speaking for the gods.
- Command Staff gain a 1.4x on every command, due to being used to giving commands.
- Mimes have a 0.5x penalty, since they aren't used to speaking.
- Cultists gain a 2x on every command they give, since they're supported by their deities.
- Wizards gain a 2.5x on every command they give, since they are proficient with incantations.
Speaking the real name of someone at the beginning of the command will restrict the command to that person, but it will also multiply the effect by 2. If multiple people in the range have that name, they will all be affected, although with a reduced multiplier (the formula is 1 + (1 / targets). This also goes for job descriptions, such as Scientist, Head of Personnel, and so on. Changing jobs through the HoP won't change them for the purposes of this focus. The common abbreviations for jobs are also valid (e.g. HoS for Head of Security, Cap for Captain).
To avoid the effect of the Voice of God, one can:
- Be deaf - what you can't hear can't affect you!
- Wear earmuffs - after all, they render you deaf.
- Hold a Chaplain artifact, such as a null rod
- Silence the speaker: anything that prevents speech will also prevent the use of the Voice.
