  First steps

What do you do now?

You're probably asking yourself at this point what to do now that you've read these files. Well, the first and best thing to do would be to find a guild.

HELP GUILDS will show you what guilds are available, and HELP <guildname> will show you some information on the guild. Once you've decided what guild to join, seek out Certimene in Delos. (HELP CERTIMENE) He will be able to induct you into a guild as a Novice (HELP NOVICES).

Once you have joined a guild, the best thing to do would be to learn your guild skills with the lessons you have available to you (type STAT to see how many lessons you currently have).

After this, you may  want to head to the land of Minia (HELP MINIA), the Valley of Lodi (HELP LODI), the Valley of Kalebb (HELP KALEBB), or perhaps go ratting (HELP RATTING) or collect butterflies for gold.

An important thing to do as quickly as possible is to gain some money for a backpack, or learn where the bank in the cities are (HELP BANKING). The reason for this is that when you quit or die, any gold you are holding in your inventory will fall to the ground.

Once you've done this, the sky is the limit. The choices are up to you, but exploration is probably always a good thing. As you wander the land, you'll encounter a variety of creatures and people. Some will be hostile and some not, and many of the sentient creatures will have things to say to you.

Greeting them with a friendly emote like HI or GREET will often elicit a response, and you may get clues this way as to quests.

Lastly, remember that a MUD is not a single-player game. It is designed to be enjoyed with other players, and finding a big player that will mentor and teach you is probably the best way to learn. Don't be afraid to ask for help from other players or Gods, and _please_ read the HELP files. Just type HELP on its own, and you will get an index of help files.


If you need help with a MUD client, try MushClient, here are some useful tutorials for it:
