Chapter 2: Communication
All public channels have something in common: You are not allowed
to curse or use dirty words. Avoid blaming, offending anyone or
babbling useless things that nobody will listen to. General
language on all channels is english.
Type WHO to see a list of players to whom you could talk to. (Note: This list will only show visible players, there may be invisible or disguised players on the mud at any time)
NEWBIEThis channel is especially for new players. Be sure, most people will do their best to help you if you ask a question via the newbie channel. Feel free to ask, do not be ashamed! Type: Newbie <text> (ie. 'Newbie Hello, could someone help me?')
People in either the AVATAR clan or the GUARDIAN clan are there to help you. Sometimes this channel is not used in the "correct way", but arrogance or just talking trash on this channel will not be tolerated, and perpetrators will be muted by the Gods or Avatars...
GOSSIPThis channel is used for general communication to all players currently on the mud. People say hello and goodbye, ask for the news or just have smalltalk and fun. Enjoy it!
