Complete list of Tips of the Day
The TAKE command can be used to take classes of objects, like CLOTHING.
Switch tips off by using NOTIP.
The Traveller's Rest storage system now allows you to go straight to the
locker room without asking for a key; one is assigned automatically.
AUTOEQ when in a locker room or a traveller's cloakroom automatically assigns
you the best armour and weapon that is in the room, and will warn you if
you have no light, weapon, or key.
The TAKE command can be used with EXCEPT, for example TAKE ALL EXCEPT FOOD.
Objects can be identified by a unique item number, which can be easier to
specify than referring to ring9, for example.  Use either ITEMNUMBERS or
INVMODE IN to toggle this feature on/off.
Items belonging to a specific class like warrior can be referred to by the
noun warrioreq, so TAKE WARRIOREQ EXCEPT BACKPLATE is a valid command.
You can set the MUD to display your local time by using TIMEOFFSET to set
the number of hours ahead or behind GMT you are.  Display your current
setting by using TIMEOFFSET with no parameters.
SEARCHA (word) will search through all the actions available that contain
the specified word, and list them.
QCOMPARE (player1) (player2) will show quest statistics for both players and
also the MUD record time.
Some mobiles can be hired and commanded.  Type LIST in the Warm Haven to see
a summary of potential hired help.
EF (short for EAT FOOD) will eat food which is carried in containers as well
as that which is carried normally.  DP (short for DRINK POTION) will do the
same for potions.

only damaging hits to yourself, and the message to show your opponent's death.
Nibbs the Accountant in the new market area can provide several financially
beneficial services once each day.  GREET him in his shop for details.
INFO COLOR shows a list of colors available under MXP.
WHOC is a useful command which shows wizard level, mortal level, class, score
and combined wealth.
! repeats the last command given to the MUD.
GCHAT can be abbreviated to [.  Check which channel you're on, and who's on
that channel by using the GCHAT command on its own.  You can change channel
by CHANNEL ME (number between 0 and 9999).
Kneeling at the Temple of Fate can confer a useful extra item.
DIGging holes in locations with soil can unearth gold, items, or (rarely)
disturb burrowing animals.
PUT x AWAY will try to find a container with enough space and put your
object(s) in, for example PUT FOOD AWAY.
LOOT (mobile) will search for money or items on dead mobiles.  You can also
LOOT ALL when you have a pile of corpses.
BUTCHER (mobile) can yield two food items when used on some wandering mobiles.

not hear or be able to use most communication channels.
The OPTIONS command lists many settings for your character that can be
modified as you wish.
It costs 1 gold per item per day to store your things in the Traveller's

city of Freedom.  There are 32 shops there, all of which have goods and
services to offer.

very early in a run!
Several commands have been enhanced to take advantage of MXP (Mud eXtension
Protocol.  Clients that can handle this include MushClient, zMUD, and cMUD.
For metawizards+, the FIND command searches for objects, mobiles, and location
names, and can be used instead of the WHERE command.
When you're mortal and want to see which players are nearby, the WHOZONE
command can be useful.
Want to increase your achievement count? Use a variety of types of weapons
and try different classes.  You can see the results via PROGRESS.
Two achievements add bonus multipliers to the amount offered as a kill
bounty; the number of quests that you do as an assassin, and the number of
bounties you've collected both affect this.
BUTCHER as many animals as possible.  A three tiered achievement increases
the effect of food that you consume.
It is a bad idea to idle in ThePit or ThePitII quests.  As the difficulty
ramps up you will lose health and die unless you're paying attention.

in QINFO; otherwise you may get your arse handed to you on a plate.

achievement which helps keep you safer from deathrooms.

in completing some of the Class quests.

eightball for a random (or is it?) outcome.

In the Icon quest, you are looking for 24 unique aurastones, which are all
hidden in locations reachable from the main continent.  You can collect these
over several sessions until you have a full set.  The tally item will prove
very useful.
'Secret' classes require a key which is hidden somewhere on the MUD,
generally in an appropriate area.
The items for the class quests are generally confined to the two or three
rooms set aside for their quest.  Exceptions to this are Lich, Viking, and
With the exception of commando, paladin, pirate, thief, and assassin, the
quests related to classes are confined to the area shown on MAP CLASS.

and more.  See HELP PROMPT.

There are a selection of maps of 7DOF available to help you navigate.  Use

them, visit the Assayer's Office off Silver Street in the city of Freedom

in the city of Freedom; they will be distributed according to item type, in

for sale for 15 minutes.

having to use tells.  To execute a normal command while in CONVERSE
mode, preceed it with a !, and to exit type **.

UNDER, and LOOK THROUGH.  They are prevalent in the class quests, but may be
used elsewhere too.
Some locations are only to be accessed by using ENTER and LEAVE.
Struggling with a quest? Perhaps the bard at Warm Haven can help with a
song.  And at a very reasonable price!

use the SYMBOLS command to make exits, objects, and creatures more
