When you are stuck:
When you are stuck and can't find your way out of something, maze, dungeon, forest, type #beam.
#beam teleports you back to Portal, the start map.

The game itself:
Create a character and go exploring and talk to NPC's by clicking on them and sending them personal messages.

You can kill creatures (and other players on PK(player kill) maps) by walking close to them and then clicking on them.

When a player get killed, newbie players respawn in Portal, the start map and keep all their items.
After they reached a given level, they will respawn in Underworld and must find the exit to Portal.
And they have a chance to drop some of the stuff in their inventory in a chest on the ground as a punishment.

You can pick up stuff from the ground, which is stored in small chests, by clicking on them and transferring the stuff into your inventory.

You can store your items in a storage and protect them this way. So you won't lose them, when you die.

There are some maps, cellars, meadows, forests, caves, where you can train fighting and get drops from the creatures you kill, like keys, armor, coins.
Killed creatures will respawn after a given time, so you can train forever.

There are a few dungeons in game you can enter.
Some are deep, others are not too deep, for example, the newbie dungeon has only 6 levels.
Creatures inside those dungeons don't respawn, when they were killed.
When all creatures inside one dungeon are killed, OR, the boss monster of that dungeon is killed, all players inside dungeons will get teleported back to the startmap (Portal) and the dungeon and the creatures inside will be re-generated again.
Right now there is no reward for finishing a dungeon except that you will get a new generated one.
Later there might be a top list of ppl who finished dungeons or killed boss monsters, or the boss monster might drop some nice stuff and such.
Inside the dungeons are doors.
You need keys to go through those doors.
Keys are a rare monster drop or you can buy them from the Key Shop in Portal.
To leave a dungeon, type #beam (because you can't leave it by going through a staircase).
