Him: as entertaining as this game is, it is extremely confusing
Him: okay, finished the tutorial
Me: You will probably want to change your name.
Him: The name was available when I made him. Why would I need to change?
Me: There are naming conventions. You want to fit the theme.
Tanris, Vayne, Lianca - those are good names. My name is Azi.
Him: Ah ya I get it. I wanted to use Sinex but the tutorial wasn't working with him.
Him: and speaking of lol
Him: pretty much the first things I ever did was cry laugh rofl and take a nap in the dirt. it was freaking hilarious
Him: Oh and I punched myself in the face. And tried seppuku and eat dirt but none of those worked.
Me: You can emote some things, meaning they don't have a real effect other than showing people what your character is doing.
Me: but some commands are actual abilities like PUNCH, that really attacks someone or something, and you really have health.
Me: So they will probably attack you back and kill you. There are rules too, more like in-game laws, so don't go around just punching everything.
HONOURS DOOMBREAK --> He is a Plebian in Ashtan.
Me: hey, you joined the right city though!
Me: Ashtan is the tits!
Him: Yup. I beat the crap out of a flame guardian but not before it freaking hugged me. Lol "the tits"
Him: it was that or the evil one. I literally flipped a coin to decide.
Me: Nice! Mhaldor seems cool, it's new to me, but it would probably be harder to learn there.
Me: I hear they kill their novices for being incompetent.
Me: Ashtan is a little more laid back. You aren't required to join a House so I can teach you the basics there.
Me: I just made a character too so we can level together and stuff while we learn. After you get the hang of things and learn about the world, if you still want to join Mhaldor we can make the switch. I think newbies are allowed to do that.
Him: Ya I figured as much about the two cities they both seem cool. Alright that'll be awesome!
Him: We'll have to start tomorrow. How do I change my name though?
Me: NAMECHANGE <new name>
Me: It's easy but wait until we're on together tomorrow.
Him: Damn that simple.
Me: You can only do it one time though.
Me: So we'll learn a little about classes and races and the cities and then when you choose which one you want to play
Me: You can pick a name that fits your character.
Him: Idk. I really like the feel of an Infernal Troll. It just sounds right to me
Me: Hmm. Troll is probably a good race for a knight but with the way stats work now it doesn't -really- matter
Me: Like I said though, Mhaldor would be a tricky place for you to start. You're prone to goofing off and they expect you to address people by title
Me: So not understanding titles and goofing off.. you'll probably die a lot there
Me: plus knights are stupid expensive for a newbie just starting out, at least they were
Me: it's probably easier to make gold now because it looks like they have pretty much taken all of the fun challenges out of the game
Me: theft is lame now, death is lame now, everyone has maps and combat systems now, and everyone and their mother is a dragon now
Me: if they make it hard to get gold now, the devs are worse than Riot
Me: We'll learn the basics in Ashtan then switch later if you still want to.
Me: Ashtan is cool though. I guess there are a lot of Occultists there now.
Me: They are like Mhaldor's Apostates but cooler.
Him: That will be good. I just hope my typing can keep up
Me: It's alright if you're slow. You don't need to be quick but for combat and
Me: we'll get to combat.........later
Me: that's Ashtan's Divine Patron, Lord Babel, God of Oblivion
Him: Hmm. May wanna stick around in Ashtan
Me: :P I thought you would like that, he seems very much your style
Him: Okay. I'm gonna get in an episode of Naruto and then catch some sleep.
Me: Is that the anime you were talking about?
Him: Yeah it's awesome
Me: lol you playing Achaea doesn't equal me watching anime
Me: just saying.. anyway good night man cya tomorrow
