He holds the position of a Regulatory Affairs Coordinator in the Institute. <--- I had no clue what the institute was and I have been around off n on for a long time a new player most certainly would not get it.
Hi! Not too sure where else to post this. I just started playing Lusternia yesterday, starting off in New Celest. I'm definitely not new to IRE, but this is pretty much my first foray into Lusternia. I've met pretty awesome people in New Celest (thanks!), and I quite like the city's flavor, but I've noticed that the Celestines guild is rather ... sparse to say the least, and I've seen maybe like 1 or 2 people around on GWHO. I've heard that this is kinda the norm lately due to the impending guild Reformation for the cities. I'm a bit conflicted as whether just to switch guilds, or if I should just wait around a bit, play around with some of the times I play and see if I get lucky? The whole concept of the Celestines seems very interesting.
Is there a reason we don't give newbies free journals by anymore? Journals were always good things for me when I was new since I'd fill them up with info bits that I could read over at a glance and bookmark around the page that was most relevant. And when you're an old, old character, it's always fun to check your newbie writing again.
Hiya folks. I don't know if I am a true newbie or not... I played Achaea roundabout 8-10 years ago, and just this past month I thought I would give IRE MUDs another go as I've remembered them so fondly for so long. I tried playing Achaea again, but it didn't stick. Back then I had played Lusternia once or twice, but it never really stuck for me. This time around, I'm completely hooked.That being said, there are a couple of things which confused me to all heck and back after I got spit out of the tutorial:1) You start out of the portal with a bunch of teardop sigils, pipetanks, and other items that you have no idea what are for or what to do with. I still don't know what half of these things do2) The lamp that you start with apparently has a larger number of answers than I had experienced. I believe there were about 5 questions that I could ask the lamp and then I didn't realize it had more questions if you continue to rub the lamp after you ask all five of those questions3) I had a huge number of herbs in my rift that I knew nothing about and when I tried to find out what they were for in the HELP CURINGLIST or the HELP HEALINGLIST file (can't remember which), they didn't even show up in there. I spent around thirty minutes today trying to sort out what kind of herbs/vials I would need since I'd like to do combat at some point, and I'm more than certain I've still got it wrong.That being said, I want to say thank you to everyone I've met thus far. Where the introduction to Lusternia falls short, everyone I've met flushes it out more than I could imagine. I'm having a ton of fun learning this game, and I hope I get to play with all of you at some point.Cheers!Edit: Shamelessly necroing a half year old thread.
