Calls are vocally expressed pre-agreed set directives which can be used for mechanical, narrative or safety purposes. Most games have an agreed set of directive calls which are suitable for use by players, including safety calls, and a separate set of directive calls for use by referees. Many game techniques rely on a specific set of directive calls used by referees. Directive calls available to players are generally influenced by 'abilities' from tabletop and computer games, and form the basis of various rule or game system. In many systems, players may access particular calls through being in possession of specific character abilities, weapons or props.
