When Used


Breaker Breaker!
You look at the little display screen on your walkie-talkie.

It is currently tuned to the frequency: <freq>

In the channel /talkie you can talk to other people who share that frequency.

New frequency: [textbox]
Set the Frequency, Kenneth
  • On frequency change:
You set the frequency dial on the walkie-talkie to <freq>.

<random line>

Notes

  • Players can also change the frequency with the chat command /kenneth <freq>.
    You understand the frequency to be <freq>.
  • The line when changing the frequency via walkie talkie is randomized between:
    It's your Benzedrine!
    Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy.
    You said that irony was the shackles of youth.
  • With the chat command /kenneth (without parameters) players can check their current frequency.
    The frequency is <freq>, Mr. Rather.
  • There is an non-player character called Coherent Static that speaks random-seeming numbers to apparently random frequencies.

History

  • For about one day after its release, it had cost a turn to change frequency, and it was not a free pull. It was then changed separately (but at close times) due to two separate threads on the forums.
  • At an unknown point on or before October 10, 2014, this item had its name changed from walkie talkie (and its plural walkie talkies) to the current forms.

References

  • The chat command is a reference to the REM song, or the incident the song was based on. "You said that irony was the shackles of youth" is a lyric from the song, as well.
  • "Withdrawal in disgust is not the same as apathy" is a line from the card set Oblique Strategies, but is probably better known for being quoted in the film Slacker (as well as being another line from "What's The Frequency, Kenneth").
  • "It's your Benzedrine" is a reference to yet another "What's the Frequency, Kenneth" line: "'What's the frequency, Kenneth?' is your Benzedrine, uh-huh."
  • "The frequency is <freq>, Mr. Rather." refers to Dan Rather, an American Journalist and News Anchor. Rather was the anchor injured in the incident "What's The Frequency, Kenneth?" is about.
