E : This allows you to examine an item, if you prefer, the command is "examine"
W: This will place the whisper command on the command line of dream seeker, once done, you can type your message and hit enter to displace it to the player you are facing.

Space: This will place the say command on the command line of Dream seeker, once done, you can type your message and hit enter to display it to the world.
HM: TR's saving system requires you to be at least 5 game days old (about 40 minutes) before it will save. From that point forward it will save on log out every time.
