What is a Tharsis Gate?
Creating a new character
You are in Tharsis Gate for the first time
What do I do next?
The entire game can be played through Telnet or Java or through one of many different specialised programs called Mud Clients.
Once you have entered a name for a new character you will be asked for your desired password, whether you are male or female, your email address, etc. The most complex part is chosing a race for your character.
The simplest and probably safest race to choose is Human which you choose simply by typing select human. You can get information about the other races using the "help" command, for example help dwarf
Once you have chosen a race you will be in the game. Your character will be saved if you stay more than 10 minutes and every other time you log in you will only have to enter your password.
There are a few Basic Commands that you should try out. These will help you learn to move around the mud and converse with other players. Our Getting Started web page will make use of thse commands while, amongst other things, leading you to a place where you get a free weapon and some armour.
At first it is advisable that you keep a browser window with the Map of Tolnedra in it available at all times.
Of course you should always ask for help on the mud if you ever need it. Just type who and then ask someone on the list for help. Or you can just broadcast a question to everyone online using the gossip command, eg: gossip HELP ME!.
