This is a cool walkie-talkie. It'll be awesome if you ever want to go on a cool spy adventure, or join a convoy.
(In-game plural: walkie-talkies)
- unused walkie-talkie
| 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]||
- On frequency change:
- You set the frequency dial on the walkie-talkie to <freq>.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
