Getting started[]

Read sign returns an error message, as does look at sign; look reads it. One can look in a container. Examine returns both description and contents if it is a container. Newbie equipment is bought, gratis, in a store after list. There is a newbie channel. "Get sandals shelf" works; "get sandals from shelf" returns an error message. The command "hint" will toggle the annoying Hint messages. Rent is deprecated, you need only save and quit.


On death you are given the affect godly protection which allows you to get to and retrieve equipment from your corpse. Affects is a command on Dawn of Ages which gives information about spells and skills which affect you.
