Help Getting Started
Getting Started on QuarantineMUD
Okay, so you are ready to play QuarantineMUD, first you need to get a Mud Client. These applications allow you to log onto a MUD and play. If you are running Windows, you should have access to Telnet, or you can download ZMUD from www.zuggsoft.com, Pueblo/UE, and Atlantis is available for Mac Users
You need to figure out, at this point, the
interface of the MUD client you are using, experiment a little. Ultimately, you will
need to input the address and port to get connected. Connecting to QuarantineMUD,
you would input the address connect.qmud.org
- port 5000
Now you need to choose a name. It should be something unique or fantasy like, and usually one word, unless having two words makes sense. Then choose a password. Your password should be something that cannot be easily guessed by the name of your character, or by how you plan on acting on the MUD. Now you have the
basis of your character.
Choosing the Guild, Class and Deity of your Character
You can always start again if you dislike any
one aspect about your character, but that gets more difficult if you level a character up,
then decide you don't like that character. The very, very basics of each guild are listed in help files and at
the character creation screens. If you really want to know the experience each entails,
you need to talk to the Immortals and Mortals, or just playtest as you go along.
Choose your Deity, based on your
alignment and guild, and then your race, mostly based
on preference of role-playing or stats, and now you're done
creating your new character.
You have now entered the realm of Landsverge, the virtual world you will travel. Start by wearing all your equipment (eq) currently in your inventory by typing 'wear all' and wielding the appropriate weapon. To view your inventory, simply type the word 'inventory' at the prompt. You will see a list of what you are carrying, one item of which will be a weapon, a mace. Wield this weapon by typing 'wield mace'.
