First things first.. you need a mud client - a program which will let you connect to a mud (text-based online multi-player world type thingie).

I recommend Zmud - http://www.zuggsoft.com/zmud/zmudinfo.htm

Once it is up and running, connect to cthulhumud.com on port 8889.

After that, it will walk you through the process of setting up your character, etc. There is a lot of helpful info on http://www.cthulhumud.com as well.

It has been crazy around here with the holidays, but I will try to catch you on here sometime if these instructions do not work very well Smile

OK, I've followed you so far.

I've got the programme and started a character.

But I can't seem to train it or practice my skills ( all those points are just sitting there!).

Can you offer me any pointers ?

I'm using a prgm called fireclient. I can't seem to connect 4 some reason.

It's wanting host, id, and port. I know the port but what do I put for the other junk?

It says something about a winsock error or something.


EDIT: NEVERMIND - FOUND IT ON THE LIST

Laurence, there should be a trainer somewhere near your starting point.

Type 'help train' and 'help prac' for some info.

In fact, typing just 'help' gives you a lot of info too Smile

Howdy Smile
I'm a complete noob. Found this site, downloaded zMUD, and I've connected. I've gotten to the point where it's asking me to pick some skills. I want to pick martial arts, but it won't let me >.<
How do I go about picking it?
