Emotes are an integral part of role play. Without them RP would be pretty dull and flat. They are used to convey moods, actions, and many other bits of information about our characters.

    * To describe an emotion we use: laughs, giggles, chuckles, snickers, crying, weeping, etc.
    * To describe an action we use: pointing, jumping, falling, crawling, lurking, spying, etc.
    * To describe a reaction we use: arching an eyebrow, narrowing the eyes at someone, rolling your eyes, scratching your head, etc.
