General Information

Have you ever wanted to start a band but think maybe it’s a little pointless because all the other musicians are playing the same thing as you?

Well, that’s not a problem here on Angel Island! Using the [play command, you can play singular notes and pauses to compose your own music.

Usage: [play note|pause [note|pause] …

There are 25 possible note values:

  • cl (low C)
  • csl (low C#)
  • d (D)
  • ds (D#)
  • e (E)
  • f (F)
  • fs (F#)
  • g (G)
  • gs (G#)
  • a (A)
  • as (A#)
  • b (B)
  • c (middle C)
  • cs (C#)
  • dh (high D)
  • dsh (high D#)
  • eh (high E)
  • fh (high F)
  • fsh (high F#)
  • gh (high G)
  • gsh (high G#)
  • ah (high A)
  • ash (high A#)
  • bh (high B)
  • ch (high C)

Incorrect Notes

You need at least 80.0 Musicianship to use [play

However, anything under GM and you will suffer a penalty where you have a chance to play notes incorrectly.

Sheet Music

Rolled up Sheet Music has been implemented to allow entrepreneurial troubadours to sell their music to other musicians.
