So you've tried to fight THE MAN and lost, eh? Never fear, you are now a ghost! You've probably already noticed you can go through walls and jump to people and shit, pretty cool huh? Well, guess what, you can't do anything else. Yeah, to be honest, the only "good" thing about being a ghost is that you can randomly become an Alien when some silly gentleman has a bad encounter with a facehugger.
Travelling to the Astral Plane
The "ghost" command allows you to become a ghost, whether you are dead or alive. CAUTION! Ghosts can re-enter their body (assuming their body isn't gibs or ashes) if they ghosted after death, allowing that body to be cloned if anyone ever finds it. However, if you ghost before you die, your body will appear as "catatonic" and can't be re-entered or cloned.
Once you're a ghost, odds are you're going to stay a ghost until the end of the round. But never fear! Besides being chosen to be an alien, ghosts may also become pAIs or adamantine golems if the right mortal beings seek you out (and your game settings allow it)! If the gods are especially playful, you might even get the chance to become something else!
This revision completely changed the game forever. Before this revision, ghosts could interact with the living realm. They had the ability to rotate chairs, use the "Boo!" verb which flickered lights on and off, and speech would leak into the world, although in a muffled in-cohesive manner. However, this was considered too fun for the station and was removed with the "justification" of fixing bugs.
Hey, Chaplain, Hey Chaplain, why can't you hear me?!
Quite some time ago, ghosts were easily able to be heard by the living. Unfortunately, this increased staff turnover as often the ghosts made the living go homicidal. And so, Nanotrasen added a "no listening to crazy ghost" clause to their contract of employment. Sorry ghosts, you can't be heard by the living any more, try
twiddling chairs. not dying.
It is rumored that ghosts can commune with certain practitioners of the dark arts should they use specific magics, but of course such things would never happen on a tightly controlled Nanotrasen station.
Oh the chatter, MAKE IT STOP!!
Use the 'ghost ears' verb to only hear what the living people in your view say so you're not flooded with everyone on the station screaming over each other. Use 'ghost eyes' to do the same with character emotes.
