Console commands are text commands that can be given to the game client. These commands can be entered after opening the console (which appears as a yellow ">" in the top left corner of the screen) by hitting the backtick (`) key on English keyboards. (This is often referred to as the tilde (~) key, presumably because the name "tilde" is more widely recognized and because shift-backtick produces a tilde.) On other keyboards, the key that opens the console varies; likely candidates are the backtick, the tilde, and whatever key is to the left of the one (1). For simplicity, the key that opens the console will be referred to as the console key. Once the console is open, the command can be typed (and will be displayed in yellow text in the top left corner of the screen).

While entering a console command, the "tab" key can be used to display a list of recognized commands that match what has been typed so far. In addition, the console key can be used to exit the console without losing what has been typed so far.

An alternate method for entering console commands is to enter the command in the chat bar, preceded by two hash marks (##). For example, entering ## d10 in the chat bar will run the "d10" command. The tab key functionality cannot be used with this method.

Player commands Edit

The following console commands can be used at any point during game play by any player. Angle brackets (< and >) are used to indicate information that must be supplied by the player. The angle brackets themselves are not used when entering the command.

Example: To simulate rolling five 10-sided dice, the console key is hit and d10 5 is typed. There must be a space between "d10" and "5".

Dungeon Master commands Edit

The following console commands can normally only be used by Dungeon Masters due to their effects on game play. However, in single-player, ordinary players can access most of these commands by entering debug mode. (The exceptions are the commands that require a faction name — dm_getfactionreputation, dm_setfaction, and dm_setfactionreputation.)
