Bind commands allow a "command string" to be bound to a short cut keyword. There are default binds, provided by Silver Creek Entertainment, and players can make their own binds, even to the point of overriding the keywords the default binds use.
Binds are considered an "alias" of a command, meaning they become a command in their own right. Once a bind is made, other binds can then activate those bound "aliases" in the same way as any other command.
Note: The "text" rule during a command string still applies.
