— into the land of fruitbats
If you are new to MUDs and mudding, there are a few areas you probably want to read first. The getting started page will help, of course. The help essentials and the help concepts pages will give you a good basic overview of how to move around, communicate, use money, gain experience and levels, and generally interact with the MUD environment. You will also be expected to know and abide by the rules.
Before logging on, you might want to try the FAQ which has good information about connection issues and other topics that can help get you started.
If you're the sort of person that likes to jump into assembly without directions, there's a lot of good online documentation accessible from within the game itself. Try the command help <whatever> where <whatever> is whatever you want help with. This should get you started.
Well? What are you waiting for? Start playing now!
