COLOURSHOW and COLOURSHOW2
This shows what the various combinations of colours for text and
background look like.
COLOURSHOW2 also shows all xterm's 256-colours, but that
is not supported by so many clients.

COLOURS [ <num> [<fg><bg><flags>] ]
Without argument, this command will toggle on or off the sending of ANSI
colours to your screen. Notice: This can create problems with some terminals.
Once you have colours turned on, you can change the default settings to suit
your own preferences.
The available colours are:
n = none (black) r = red g = green y = brown
b = blue m = magenta c = cyan w = light grey
N = grey R = bright red G = bright green Y = yellow
B = bright blue M = bright magenta C = bright cyan W = white
Only the first eight colours are usable as background colours, and on some
terminals the other eight colours will only make the text bold.
If your client supports xterm's 256-colour system, it is also possible
to use E<r><g><b> and S<nr> for RGB and greyscales, both in the foreground
and in the background. <r>,<g> and <b> should be between 0 (black)
and 5 (fully saturated), <nr> should be between 0 (black) and 23 (white).
<flags> can be one, or more, of:
i = invert the foreground and background colour.
_ = underline the text.
The colour codes you can change are these:
0 default colour 3 room titles
4 room descriptions 5 things in a room
6 exits/autoexits 8 enter/leave messages
9 mobiles in a room 10 veterans in a room
11 mortals in a room 12 wizards in a room
13 speaker of a message 14 shouted text
15 spoken text 16 told text
17 actions 19 attack message

For example: 'colours 0 yn' changes the default colour to brown on black.
To check what colour you have chosen for one particular setting, type
"colours <nr>", where <nr> is the relevant number.
To reset a colour to the default setting, type "colours <nr> default".
To reset all your colours to the game's default, type "colours default".
