Here are some basic hints to help you get started on your first missions. -The first task of any mission should be to locate the areas in which the mission will take place. The best way to do this is to utilise freyburg townhall. The explorer there has travelled the world and has knowledge of nearly every zone, if you ask him about the zone you need to find then he will give you a hint as to where it is. -To the east of the explorer is Tourist Information, here you can find several maps and a zone list that will help you locate the zone. Further you can also visit the lands section of the website. http://www.multimud.net/maps contains several detailed maps of the world. -If your mission requires that you search for information do not forget that rooms can have extra descriptions that can hold valuable information. Usually they are marked in the room descriptions, but sometimes there are some sneaky hidden ones too!
