This command will prompt you for your old password then, assuming you get it right, will let you enter your new password. It will then ask you to type it again to make sure you got it right the first time. It then forces you to save so your new password is immediately stored.

Please also read the rules regarding the use, sharing and replacement of passwords!

Tips for choosing passwords

Don't use something you'd find in a dictionary (in any language or
jargon). Don't use a name (including that of a spouse, parent, child,
pet, fantasy character, famous person, and location) or any variation
of your personal or mud name.

Don't use accessible information about you (such as your phone number,
license plate, or social security number) or your environment. Don't
use a birthday or a simple pattern (such as backwards, followed by a
digit, or preceded by a digit.

Instead, use a mixture of upper and lower case letters, as well as
digits or punctuation. When choosing a new password, make sure it's
unrelated to any previous password. Use long passwords (say 8
characters long). You might use a word pair with punctuation
inserted, a passphrase (an understandable sequence of words), or the
first letter of each word in a passphrase.

Only the first 8 characters of your password are significant, however it
can be longer if this helps you remember it.

If someone guesses your password they can take your character and destroy it by getting it killed, refrshing, spending your exp etc.

Forgotten Passwords

At the login prompt you can request a temporary password to be sent to your registered email address. This is a one-use password, immediately after using it you should set a new password. If you do not have a valid email address in your finger information your password cannot be reset.
