Subj: Newbies - No Race or Guild

Starting immediately, newbies will no longer enter Lusternia with a race
or guild; however, they will be asked to select a city or nature commune
to start. During their tour, they will be prompted to join a guild
(listed from those available in their city and commune). After they join
a guild, they'll be prompted to select a new race (they begin as human).
Guild Administrators who have not set the recommended and restricted
races yet should do so ASAP.

Guides and those who help newbies need to be aware of this change. It
should be noted that newbies can use the GUILD command to select a guild
at any time (they don't need to wait until the tour tells them to), but
if you are going to suggest that to a newbie, you must have the time and
be prepared to be their guide and explain about the guild system, how to
learn skills and answer any questions they may have. In other words, if
you see a newbie, don't suggest to them to type GUILDS and then leave
them on their own!
