The game is currently open to the public, and we always welcome new players. You can log in as a Guest, but we encourage you to get a character as soon as possible.
You can rename your character at any time, so you don't need to have settled on a name before getting a character; just get an identity and rename yourself whenever you settle on a final name.
If you are interested in a character object, log in as a Guest and use the following command:
+request name = email address
In order to obtain a character, you will be required to register with a valid email address. Use this command to request a character. The password will be sent to the email address you specify. This occurs automatically and immediately.
Generally, if you receive email quickly, you should get a response within five minutes; if you don't receive the password within a day, there has been a problem and you should contact a staff member to get it resolved.
If you don't get the message, make sure that you check your spam folder!
* NOTE *
Currently, your password will be displayed to you on the screen after you type +request name = email address
Please write this password down and do not check your email as there will be no email sent.

Please note that all of your alts MUST be registered under the same address. To register an alt, use:

This will show you where all exits from a location lead to, whenever you move into a room or do a look.
Also, check out our maps.
There's also an in-game map for the city, accessible via +map
If you know the person you want to go to, and you're in the same area as them (for instance, you're in Amber City and you want to join someone else in Amber City), you can use +zoom name-of-person to get to them.
If you know the name of the location you want to go to, and you're in that location's area, you can use +zoom name-of-room to go there. You don't have to type the full name of the room, and wildcards will also work. +zoom * shows you all the rooms in an area.
We have a strong respect for anonymity. We strongly discourage asking other people about their identities (if you ask, don't be surprised if the reply is "I'd rather not say"). Whether or not you want to tell someone else who you are is up to you.
