General

All | A B C F L O P R
There are 3 names in this directory beginning with the letter O.
off
Refers to "I'm not fighting anymore" typically, the enemy fled off. Tells the others that the fight is no longer where you narrated "on" and the enemy is most likely running somewhere.

on
The most basic piece of information in PK, telling others that the fight is on. The majority of PK is typically chasing, blocking, standing around, baiting and so forth. Mostly, for every hour pking, you'd be lucky to spend 10 minutes actually fighting. "on" tells people where it's at. How much information you put in the "on" message depends on how much information the others need to know. The most frequent mistake is if they don't know where you are, simply narrating "on" doesn't help, you need a location.

out
An instruction to get out of the fight and get safe, most likely because your side is losing. "OUT" means "get out now". "OUT OUT OUT" means "run like hell".

Northern

All | # A B C D F G M O P R S T W X
There are 2 names in this directory beginning with the letter O.
orch ent
Orchard entrance - 2s, 2w of all n gap is this 4-exit room, with the west exit leading to orchard. It has 4 blighted trees, and is a bad spot to be if you really want to get west and are blocked.

otg
Directly north of bush, maybe about 6 rooms, is a n/e/w/s room called "Outside the Gap". It used to be a good block spot against anyone, as east and west exits lead nowhere. However, the east exit now leads to a new zone north of LS, which then heads to blight.. so it's not used anymore. It's still often used as a reference point, however.
