Hello everyone, long time MUDer first time Armageddon player. I actually came to the game after learning that these new slightly more... open boards went up and thought I'd give it a go.
As a MUD vet I'm not really interested in playing catchup discovering all the little secrets players have over the last decade or so. I'm looking to immerse myself in a neat sounding world, have some good old fashion RPI times, you know, fun.
With that in mind I ask that you hit me with your newbie info-bombs. What are the best early available gears? Weapons? Tricks for pumping up skills in my down time (Totally here to RP, but we all know it's a little more fun when you're useful beyond a good chit-chat )? Places to go, activities to enjoy even glaring noobie mistakes to avoid. It's all welcome.
Generalities are perfect, if you want to get a little more specific to me, Tuluk Hunter advice

For a new tuluki hunter player, I recommend ranger/subguild. If you want to min-max something a bit more effective for your learning and enjoyment experience try ranger/crafter (weaponsmaker, armormaker, whatever you want). These make great money and can be enjoyable to learn in game or you can check out some posts about craftable stuff here. If crafting isn't your think, try ranger/thief sneaking around is fun and helpful early on sneak up on those easier creatures that flee.
If you are starting out in tuluk, buy an inix, a sancloth greatcloak(any is color is fine) and two weapons. Generally cheaper weapons for now will do, though in tuluk feathered hatchets will serve you well for a really long time before you are ready to march up to salarr and ask the agent to sell you their best weapons. You can also skin with them. In terms of armor, you'll want to buy gurth shell helmet and collar for your head and neck at least if you have enough coins, otherwise try to save at least 200 coins in your bank account. Remember stabling fees cost 20 coins and it can add up if you aren't careful.
In order to save money on water early on you need to go to the east plains and forage around places you see plants growing. Type 'forage food' or forage root. You get food this way which you can try to cook and sell and its possible to get bulbous sacs which have water in them. You can roughly get two sacs per plant location so move on to another location after finding two. You'll want to begin hunting, your first choice will be gurth. You'll need to chase them down until they are exhausted, or if you have sneak, you can sneak up on them and kill them before skinning them. Othewise you can buy a sling, forage for stones and try that. Good way to twink up your archery skill to max which is your bread and butter later in the game. Other that Ritikki in the east plans and tregil in the scrub are good starting creatures for newbie rangers before moving on to tandu. Just be careful of gortoks, tembo, carru and bahamets just to mention a few things.
If you are completely new, my advice is to join a independent group or clan house. Its a lot easier to be shown how to survive rather than told. You'll learn a lot, especially if you are a crafter. You can see read the posts here but that won't help you as a newbie, it is more geared to allow players that already understand the game to kinda become more badass with knowledge.

Sandcloth greatcloak gives you extra mv+ which can be useful when doing anything exerting to your stamina. The cheap cotton one is fine but out in the sands it'll just scream out I'm a newbie. Which isn't the worst thing since you are, and people on the mud will generally be more willing to help you out more if they see that its true.
Feathered hatchet can be found in the tuluki tribal market, though they are sometimes sold out. You need to keep checking every once in a while or ask to see if anyone has seen them anywhere else (people sometimes have a spare or two they find on player corpses which they can then keep or sell to any weapon shop). If you can't get the hatchets just get any two cheap one handed axes until you find them. Don't worry, you'll spot them eventually. Again they are an excellent starting weapon in tuluk but a salarr agent will probably be able to sell you a better weapon if you have the coins (though they tend to be a lot heavier too, 4-5 stones for the obsidian razor tomahawks vs the one stone the hatchet weigh).

pinkerdlu: Naw, no such policy exists. But go on with your insane rants. Not sure why you always try to go incognito on various platforms when people recognize your batshit bipolar antics almost instantly.
