I have a quick question about one of the topics. In "General Responses," there is a J and L. Do those mean anything or were they accidental? And if they will go into the responses, what would they mean?

I think they were deliberate seen as J=Wag but I'm not sure what L does... I know K is bow so maybe K was the one that was meant? But I think J was deliberate.

Hm....

What about adding:

"Wait!"

"Stop!"

"Cattle Ranch" [if that is implemented in the SC multiplayer]

I noticed that since there are a "where" and a "where are you going" in the questions section, perhaps there could be a "to the left/right" or "to your left/right" in the responses section.

I got ideas for no chatting and just for wolf be havers :)

Greetings:

j > wag tail
k > Bow
b > lick a wolfs muzzle while wags tail and jumps on the wolf who you are greeting
c > role over playfully

Territorial Greetings:

n > angry Growl
i > Attack a wolf, and when you attack your health goes down, like you attack a elk or a bear.
x > submit to a wolf.

and that's all i got for now :)

Thanks for all the suggestions. But please keep in mind the Phrase Chat interface. The more words we have, the more intricate it is to use, and so the less useful it actually is. If any of you can whittle down your lists to "what I *really* would like to have added," that would be very helpful.

Sorry! I was going for a more conversation route and didn't think about the interface. I have gotten rid of all the unnecessary sentences and placed a list of the ones I think would be the most useful at the bottom. I don't mind if you don't use them, though!
