WHAT TO DO NOW - Lusternia Online Help
2.3 WHAT TO DO NOW
You're probably asking yourself at this point what to do now that you've read these files. Well, the first and best thing to do would be to contact your guild members and ask for guidance. If you aren't a member of a guild, it is best to contact a member of that guild you wish to join on how best to gain entrance into the guild. HELP GUILDS will show you what guilds are available, and HELP <guildname> will show you some information on the guild. Once you have joined a guild, the best thing to do would be greet your guild using CGT followed with your message, and then you should begin learning about your guild skills with the lessons you have available to you (type STAT to see how many lessons you currently have). You will first need to choose your skills from what your guild offers, see HELP SKILLCHOICE. After this, you may want to head to Newton Caverns (HELP NEWTON) or perhaps go vermin collecting (HELP RATS or HELP WEEVILS). You can use magical portals to help you get around the land, though you only have a limited amount of uses of these portals (HELP PORTALS). Once you have made some gold you may want to look at purchasing some clothes or perhaps a health vial. You may also want to find one of the banks in any of the major cities (HELP BANKS) to store your extra gold in. There are thieves out there. Once you've done this, the sky is the limit. The choices are up to you, but exploration is probably always a good thing. As you wander the land, you'll encounter a variety of creatures and people. Some will be hostile and some not, and many of the sentient creatures will have things to say to you. Greeting them with a friendly emote like HI or GREET will often elicit a response, and you may get clues this way as to quests. Lusternia is not for a single adventurer. It is designed to be enjoyed with other adventurers. Finding an experienced adventurer that will mentor and teach you is probably the best way to learn. Don't be afraid to ask for help from other adventurers or Gods, and _please_ read the HELP files. Just type HELP: to get an index of help files. This one thing is both the blessing, and the curse of multi-player games: all those other adventurers! They may get in your way, or you may get in theirs. You may help one and be backstabbed by another. Working together, or in opposition, our adventurers are the main ingredient that dictate what Lusternia will become. Get involved! Help us all to create the greatest realms on earth - Lusternia!
