Text Online Games – Common Newbie Mistakes

Text Online Games – Common Newbie Mistakes

You have to face it. Everyone was a newbie once when the foray into text online games began and no doubt there will be hundreds more to come, but I have written these fine words in the hope that you, dear newbie, can get a quick grasp of how not to seem so band spanking new in a MUD (Multi-User Dungeon).

Leet and TXT speak.
This is put at the top as I think almost everyone can agree that any kind of leet or txt speak (coming from the term ‘texting’ on a mobile phone) is a horrible habit and should not show its ugly, word breaking face in any text adventure game. Words like ‘lol’, ‘U’, ‘ur’, ‘Y?’, ‘rofl’, ‘h8’, ‘l8er’ and any kind of combination of taking letters out and replacing them with any other letter (or number!) to make a phonetically spelt word, or in fact adding the letter ‘z’ to the end, should never be used when you are in a MUD.

Think of an online text game like a book. Albeit a สล็อต very good book, written by hundreds of authors as they weave their characters into the story. You do not have to be perfect with the English language to be able to play MUDs, but a basic understand of correct grammar and punctuation helps an awful lot. Think about what you are typing. If you are unsure on how a word is spelt then try to have a word checker open, as it only takes a few moments to check if a word is spelt correctly, and you will be seen in a much better light if it is!

You are not a God.
I am sorry; someone has to break the bad news to you. You, my dear newbie, are not a God. Your character is not a God nor do they have amazing divine powers that will enable you to crush a human body just by giving them a stern look! It is sad, I know. But mourn not! You COULD be given divine powers, if you work for them.

Learn to role-play responsibly. Learn the limits of your characters and their skills, as they can become a good basic beginning of how your character can flourish. Let them grow slowly into the powers they will one day wield, as there is no reason to hurry. You don’t hurry and skip through a good book now do you? This is your characters life, guide them into living it and becoming the true hero (or villain) they should be known for.
