Welcome to Icesus ================= This file will tell you how you can get information about Icesus that beginning players need. You can read this file at any time by typing 'help newbie'. Just typing 'help' will show you the most basic commands and show how you can get lists of all documents and commands in the game. You can also try visiting our website, if you haven't already. The URL is http://www.icesus.org/Icesus/ Here are some helpfiles you should read: 'help creation' This tells you about the character creation system in Icesus. 'help starting' This gives you general info you should know when starting your adventuring career. 'help living' Advice and information beginning adventurers need in their daily life. READ THIS! 'help newbie areas' Gives you some directions to areas suitable for beginning adventurers and some advice on what to do there. 'help newbie hints' Some general hints about what beginning adventurers can and cannot do, should and shouldn't do. 'help settings' Explains various properties you can set to make your game more enjoyable, eg terminal width, command delimeter, aliases and nicknames. 'help helper' This is a command for requesting help from one of the dedicated newbie helpers. 'help faq' This is a collection of the most frequently asked questions and the answers to those. 'help rules' These are the rules every player must follow. 'help reporting' How to inform the wizards about errors, give them ideas or just praise them. Also look at 'help commands' or 'help commands long', and type 'topics' for a list of all miscellaneous help documents you also can read. If you have a question which you cannot find the answer to in any help-document, try asking another player. The best way to do this is using a channel. For example, 'ice Can you help me?'. You can see what channels are available to you by typing 'channel list'. If you want to turn on some channel that you currently have turned off, type 'channel join <name>', You can also try talking directly to a player with the 'tell'-command, eg 'tell neurotico Can you help me?'. Always try asking other players first, before you ask a wizard. Also, please do read the documentation first so you don't unnecessarily ask questions already answered there. We are always seeking to improve our newbie documentation. Please inform us if you find any errors in it or have ideas of what else should be mentioned here. Thank you.
