Chatting with Friends
You can chat to characters you have on your Friends List, no matter where they are in the Spiral!
Select your online friend from the list and if they have Text Chat, you can click the Text Chat button to chat to them directly. You will see purple text appear in your Chat Window like this:
If your friend only has Menu Chat you can still talk to them by selecting your online friend and clicking the Menu Chat button. This will open the regular Menu Chat options, and you can talk to your friend using those selections.
