currently im still reading..and reading.. and checking out the tutorial videos. character is hopefully safe sleeping lol
so yah. hai!
Hope you like the game! Don't be afraid to ask for help, since there is a bit of a learning curve. Game-Help is your friend -- and so are the PCs! I found when I started, 95% of my questions were answered ICly!
It's a great game and I'm so happy to constantly see new players joining!
Your local sap,
(Yes I signed my reply, shut up)
Kudos to you for reviewing the videos and help content ahead of time.
"examine" is your friend. "examine me" will keep you busy for a few hours.
"examine (object)" out in the game world will be a huge help any time you want to try to do something.
Don't be afraid to "@xcon game" to join the Game-Help channel. Just make it your last resort for help, not your first. =)
Getting a bit anxious about finding work, as I know i can't stay in the coffin forever, but also I don't know how long I can stay there. Looking forward to figuring it all out ICly!
Welcome to your new addiction! Nah, but it's close to it. And, the struggle you're feeling? That's just a sign you're playing the game right! There are a lot of helpful people OOC and IC if you look for them. Things are always slowest when you're new, I equate it to being in a new city in Real Life and sort of learning where the important stuff is. Like the Starbucks, best bar and best BBQ! But, seriously, take advantage of the Help Files and the YouTube vids that Slither created. And, you'll soon get drawn into all the fun!
I'll echo what others have said; in the beginning, it can be a little slow until your character finds where they want to be. And to echo what ynk said, enjoy it, because if its anything like my experience, you'll have more RP thrown at you than what you have time for!
My other suggestion is, in the beginning, go to public places often. Bars are where my character met most of the people who I share plots with. If there's an event, like a concert or a party, go to it! They're fun and great way to meet others.
99% of all your questions can be asked ICly, so don't hesitate. There's characters in the game whose very job is to answer that kind of stuff. I hope you have a good time and as others have said, welcome to your new addiction!
