You have to face it. Everyone was a newbie once when the foray into online text gaming began and there will no doubt be hundreds more to come, but I have written these beautiful words in the hope that you, dear newbie, can quickly understand how not to seem so raid is new to a MUD (multi-user dungeon).

Leet and TXT talk.
This sits at the top as I think almost everyone can agree that any kind of lelet or txt talk (coming from the term ‘texting’ on a mobile phone) is a horrible habit and you shouldn’t show your ugly face and word breaker in no time. text adventure game. Words like ‘lol’, ‘U’, ‘ur’, ‘Y?’, ‘rofl’, ‘h8’, ‘l8er’ and any kind of combination of taking out letters and replacing them with any other letter (or number!) to form a spelled word phonetically, or indeed by adding the letter ‘z’ to the end, should never be used when in a MUD.

Think of an online text game like a book. It is a very good book though, written by hundreds of authors as they weave their characters into the story. You don’t have to be perfect with the English language to be able to play MUD, but a basic understanding of correct grammar and punctuation 메이저사이트 goes a long way. Think about what you are writing. If you’re not sure how to spell a word, try having a word checker open, as it only takes a few minutes to check if a word is spelled correctly, and it will look much better if it is!

You are not a God.
Sorry; someone has to give you the bad news. You, my dear rookie, are not a God. Your character is not a God nor does he have amazing divine powers that will allow you to crush a human body just by giving him a stern look! It’s sad, I know. But don’t be sorry! They COULD receive divine powers, if you work for them.

Learn to role-play responsibly. Learn the limits of your characters and their abilities, as these can become a good basic start to how your character can flourish. Let them slowly grow into the powers they will one day wield, as there is no reason to rush. Don’t rush and skip a good book now, right? This is the life of your characters, guide them to live it and become the true hero (or villain) they should be known for.

Read the rules!
One of the most common mistakes is breaking the rules thinking you know it all. You may be able to, but every MUD has different rules and it’s worth taking some time to read them to make sure you don’t accidentally slip up.

Does the online text game allow you to be more than one character? Are you allowed to swear? Is violence in the game frowned upon? Can you trade items between characters? What happens if you get into trouble and how do you appeal the decision? All of this is important, as most MUD games will have rules stating that if they are broken, your character will be banned.

Be polite
You can’t ask for anything more than to be courteous. If you don’t understand something, whether it’s an in-game command or a story, just ask. No doubt there will be people in the online text game who will be more than willing to help you learn the ropes. Be courteous and send them a message with ‘Hi, sorry. I am new to all this. Can you help me?’. MUD players enjoy the worlds they are creating and having another person join their world and expand with a new personality is a good thing.

Rudeness, as in the ‘real world’ (That place outside your front door) is seen in a bad light.…
