I'm lost! How can I learn to get around?

Never fear! Just click here to see a guide written just for the new player!

GemStone IV features a built-in help system that should guide you through your early beginnings as a burgeoning adventurer. Don't be afraid to explore and try out new things! And certainly don't be afraid to use the HELP and ADVICE commands inside the game.

How do I do what this other guy did?

Why not ask the other guy? Most commands in GemStone IV are very intuitive...if you think you can do it, you probably can. Sometimes the syntax can be difficult to figure out, although usually it's just what you think it might be. Just ask the other player how they did that (you might WHISPER to them), or ask around on the forums to see if anyone else knows.

How do I put something in my backpack and take it back out again?

To put something in your backpack, type PUT <item> IN MY BACKPACK. To get it out again, type GET <item> FROM MY BACKPACK.

It's very important that you always use MY when putting things away. If you don't, there's a chance that you'll put your item into a container on the ground instead of the one on you, thereby losing the item. We cannot replace items lost in this way, so make certain to pay attention to where you put things.

How do I get deeds?

Deeds are a very important part of GemStone IV. When your character dies, if they aren't resurrected, they need to have a deed to keep from dying permanently (two deeds if they die a spirit point death).

However, we can't tell you how to get a deed. This is a puzzle that you'll need to learn about on your own. Your best bet is to ask help from other characters in the game, since they'll likely be able to point you in the right direction.
