Choosing a Race
By now some messages may have appeared on your screen explaining
some things about how to use commands (or verbs) in the game to
do things like move, look, touch, etc. other things in the game.
At your leisure, read them as they appear. If you want to see the
room description again, you can do so at any time by typing LOOK
You should be in a room that asks you to pick a race. If you just
want to get into the game, type TOUCH HUMAN, then type
NORTH. Otherwise, you can pick any of the other races you
Type LOOK ON DAIS and you will see a list of the figurines.
You can look ON/UNDER/BEHIND/IN things that exist in the game, and
if something is there, you will see it.
For information on each race, you can check the Races
Page on the website, or you can LOOK at each race.
For example, LOOK AT DWARF FIGURINE or LOOK DWARF
When you have decided what you want to be, select your race by
touching a figurine. For example, TOUCH THE GOR'TOG FIGURINE
or TOUCH GOR .
|Note: You can TOUCH
the figurine of your choice as many times as you like to change
your starting stats. However, these aren't as vital as they
are in other RPGs you might be familiar with, so don't sweat
You will be turned into the race of your choice and given some
stats (numbers that represent how good you are in Strength, Agility,
etc.). These values go up later as you play the game.
After picking your race, go NORTH to the next step.
