Subj: Emote overhaul

One of the features that we get asked about most is an expansion to the emote system, allowing a greater range of flexibility when expressing one's self. We agree, and we're pleased to announce the release of our overhauled emoting system!

Some of the features of the new system are:
* Emotes can now be combined with many basic actions, such as GIVE, DROP, and WEAR.
* Items and players can now be seamlessly referenced in emotes.
* Everything is wrapped up in one easy-to-use command: EMOTE - no more TMOTE!
* This is now compatible with artefact pets; those of you who have purchased the sentience add-on for your pets can now direct them to emote using the full system.

Excited yet? We sure are! For all of the details on the new system, check out HELP EMOTING!

We have also added a new CONFIG option: SII or SEEITEMINTERACTION. When someone uses a custom emote in combination a basic action like DROP, those who have this enabled will see a summary of the action following the emote. This is off by default, so CONFIG SII ON if you would like to use it.

(*) Note: The new system offers many changes to expand your options when interacting with players, but one thing that has not changed is our stance on using emotes to scam other adventurers or for advantages in player-vs-player combat. The rules are simple: don't do it.
