An introduction to the MUD and the backstory and such can be found at The Introduction
Our entire help file system from the MUD is provided here. It includes basic MUD commands and TSOS specific commands. Very helpful for new players or anyone who needs clarification on commands. Help.
Rule of Thumb for teaching skills:
Easy: 10-15 posts
Moderate: 20-25 posts
Hard: 30-40 posts
Note that there are plenty of skills that can be learned through observation, however the rules state that you must be at least RPC4 and the skill should be mentioned ICly [doesn't have to be by name, but can be described]
