Quickstart

|| _ ___ _o | | Announcements || || | | |...| |.| | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || If you have played Nightfall or other MUDs before and/or just want to know the || | | |.o.| |.| | | Web Client || most concise information relevant to get in as quickly as possible, this page is || '-' '---' '-' | | Clients || for you. || \| | Quickstart || || | | Wait, What? || About MUDs || |o | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || || o| | Races || If you have never seen a MUD before, a very rough first approximation would be || | | Guilds || to think of a text-based MMORPG, such as World of Warcraft. Rather than fancy || | | Map || graphics, MUDs use plain text to describe what is happening, rather than you || | | Lore || clicking around with a mouse and pressing a few buttons to walk and fight, you || | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || enter commands such as "west" (or "w") to go west and "kill orc" to attack the || | | Who's Online? || orc (and rather than annoying teenagers, we have annoying everyones!). || | | Finger || || | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || Connection Information || | | The Guide || || o| | Player Help || Nightfall runs on port 4242 at nightfall.org. To connect, use a MUD client or || | | The Sky || the web client available here. To disconnect, use "petrify" or close your client || | | ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ || to preserve your location and inventory, unless the MUD reboots. In this case, || | | Imprint || you will receive a small monetary compensation. || | | || || | | || First Steps || | | || || | | || You can either create an account, log in with an old account of yours or log in || | | || as a guest. If you go south in the first room, you should recall that you can || | | || skip the history introduction at any point using "skip". You will then end up in || | | || the town hall of Nightfall City (NFC). You can explore this town hall a little || | | || bit and then have a look at Nightfall City. It might be wise to first look at || | | || the Newbie Park in the southwest to gain a little bit of experience, which will || |o | || allow you to advance your level and improve your stats. || | | || || | | || Communication || \| | || || | | || To talk on the public channels, use "= <text>". To talk privately with others, || o| | || use "tell <name> <text>", to talk with people in the same room, "say || | | || <text>". Feel free to ask for help at any time. || | | || || | | || Commands || | | || || | | || Statistics || | | || score shows your stats || | | || sc stats in a very short abbreviated format || | | || i shows your inventory || | | || i2 inventory with different format || | | || equipment what you wield and wear || |/ | || resistance shows your magic resistances || | | || skills [theory] shows your skills || | | || || | | || Equipment || | | || wear <obj> don a piece of armour || | | || unwear <obj> remove a piece of armour || \| | || wield <obj> wield a weapon || | | || unwield <obj> unwield a weapon || | | || equip <obj> equip yourself with that object || | | || unequip <obj> unequip the object || | | || Equipped objects can't be dropped or are not accounted by search || | | || You can use numbers.
