Herein ye find, when turn'st the Page, myriad Customs passing strange...

   This section should serve for you as a basic manual on how to play LegendMUD. The LegendMUD Newbie Guide can be mailed to you by the game when you first connect or from the form below. It covers basic instructions on how to get started in the game, quick start tips for experienced mudders, what the character attributes mean, how advancement is measured in the game, and a glossary of terms. The text below essentially duplicates the text in the manual that is emailed to you, but is perhaps easier to reference or browse, and may be more nicely formatted when printed out.

   The Code of Conduct is a lengthy document, but one you should read if you intend to play LegendMUD. When creating a new character, you will have to read it in order to enter the game, and anyone connecting is assumed to have agreed to the terms described. It is provided here for your reference.
