There are two kinds of prompts, your regular, all-the-time prompt and the fighting-only battle prompt. Some info is only available in one of the two prompts.

A prompt is a very personal thing, and you'll want to balance information and visibility. Too much of either is a distraction. Read help prompt to find the commands to set your prompts and what each of the variables do. Also, you can type <auto> to see your current prompt.

Examples of regular prompts:
