1.5 New Players

Welcome to Aetolia, The Midnight Age!

As a new player, you will undoubtedly be confused. Below are a list of files that you should probably read. Reading them in order is best, but if you feel you already know what you need to about a certain topic, you may skip some of these files. To read these files, simply type HELP <filename>. For instance, HELP MUDINTRO. Capital letters are not necessary. There is a lot of information, but after reading this sequence of files, you will be prepared to begin your life in Aetolia!  

Remember too that there is a newbie channel (just type NEWBIE <your question> in order to speak to people listening to that channel.        

Note that these files are arranged in a standard outline form. The headings of the sections are not help files in and of themselves, though they may share the same name as one of the files in that heading. Many of these files refer to other help files which contain further information on that subject. Though some of the basic help files are listed here, they are by no means the only help files. Typing HELP on its own will give you an index to all the help files.                   

If you've finished the novice introduction, and met Ghantia, Svisle, and the rest, then you can probably ignore the Communication, Your Character, and Guilds and Skills sections.
