Hi Syl,

That's right, Helper chat is on the main page. You'll want to click on the "Get Live Help!" bar right below the Mantis; it should be on the righthand side of your window.

If there's no helper online you'll be prompted to leave a message.

Indeed, there should be a link on the main page for the helper chat. Can help with a lot of things that can be confusing for a newcomer, and avoids over use of the ooc chat in the game.

EDIT: Doh, Badskeelz beat me to it.
I'm asking for evidence, not telling you all to fuck off.

No, I'm telling you to fuck off, now, because you're being a little bitch.

That seems a valuable goods then, eh?

So far as drawing, yes and no. Artistry, sculptures, statues, all that stuff has happened, and does happen. There's no specific "artistry" skill by any means, but you CAN learn to draw things, to a point.

The answer is a bit more in-depth, but simply put... yes you can draw in the game.

For starters, look up "help scribble". It may require something being held that can make a mark on surfaces, but it lasts a few in game days. Good for graffiti and the like, until you get more familiar with things.

Actual drawing, painting, etc is done through pure roleplay, item long descriptions being changed with arrange, and/or being a skill-set with a lot of crafting masteries and submitting a "Mastercraft" idea.

Also.
You aren't going to make much money off of:
Crafting
Selling things
Or a lot of things.
As a non merchant/non crafter.


Excluding a few guilds and a few crafting abilities they get you can't make a lot as non-merchant.

You should edit your post.

Talking about direct character things on the forums is a general no no as it hints at who you are and people can find and murder you easier don't need to know that.


It would be best to use helper chat for something like that and being vague.
Or asking staff in a request.
Or asking someone in the Byn, like a sergeant, IC or even in OOC if it's something that doesn't have a good ic question.
"and I can't find the words to discuss about my enlistment"
Also I have no idea what this means.

To join you would ask a sergeant of the Byn and they would tell you the rules and what not.
It also costs 3 small (300 coins) to join.

Welcome!

You can use the rumor boards in the taverns but you need to roleplay that you heard the rumor not read as reading and writing is legal in Allanak.

Ok, and thinkin... Isn't it a bit sad, in such an enforced RP mud, to have so rigid 'class' or guild? My char grow up with the inheritance and the life of a ranger, but he would have liked it a lot to craft also by the campfire, and why not, to leaf through some magickal volume, eh?

Yeah, the guilds and also the subguilds are rigid and I don't know if the staff would allow you to special app a ranger with firemaking as a new player.  Or you can join a merchant house and learn from hunters or even the Byn.

Find out IC. :P

Actually, both magick and reading are punishable by death. Quite a risky hobby.
