Guide for Newbies

Postby Marvel » Fri Feb 19, 2010 10:32 pm

I've been working on a website for newbies to read up about Sloth and it has information on a variety of newbie issues. I've only finished the first part ("Beginner") level. I have logs and plans for "Advanced" and "Expert" levels (which will teach about the more 'advanced' skills/commands/features of Sloth).

I'm hoping this will be an useful resource for new players - please feel free to leave feedback either on this forum or via email. :twisted:

Thanks!

wow, thats a really nice page.

Maybe you could make a link to this site with the tag free online rpg game? It helps our search rankings.

I can think of no one else who shall be named KING OF NEWBIES! :)~

That's some pretty amazing work.

I also laughed out loud (lol for you younger folk) when I saw the rooster as we were watching that very movie: Disney's Robin Hood.

Thanks for the feedback & kind words - and thanks for the link suggestion, can't believe I forgot to link to slothmud itself completely! :lol:

More to come when I get the time - there's a lot more that I'm going to add in there, but for the most part, I'm going to limit these pages up to level 20 with some suggestions for beyond that (but I will still be describing the concepts for some skills / spells that are beyond level 20, such as teaching, since that directly benefits new players).

Please feel free to point out any errors or any additions that you may want to see made. Here's a preliminary list of the topics that will be covered later on (the adventures of Cid will follow its own path) - each will be sorted into their approriate levels. I also plan on adding some class-specific guides after all of the below have been completed:

Regeneration

Caps
Indoor/Outdoor
Day/Night
Bonus Days & Astrology
Attunement / Charms / Teaching / Peristratas / Shards
