The Most Important Tip to New Players
As the title suggest I am about to tell every newbie the most important tip they will ever get while playing Achaea, <Insert Drum Roll Here>........
Be friendly and talk to folks, not too many people were expecting that but it will make the game 10 times more enjoyable. But don't just be sociable to your city, be friendly to everyone you see. Too many times have i seen "your from <insert city name here> and my our cities are enemies." Then they run away, I myself am friendly as can be, being from Targossas I think more cities are my enemy than friend, but even when a Mhaldorian crosses my path we tend to have a 10 minute conversation trying to convert eachother (both fail but we still have some good ol' fashion conversating goin' on.) which makes the game more interesting. But if I had just said "Oh no a Mhaldorian, they smell funny, and eat rats!!!!" and then proceeded to run away, I would of never made a new friend that if I meet on the battlefield I get to try to impale and have a drink bout it later with them. And plus when people doubt that I am the Friendliest person that ever existed i can just say that I Hail from Targossas and when a Mhaldorian or Ashtani(that sounds odd but guessing it is right) walk by I strike up a friendly conversation with them.
So now armed with the knowledge that to be successful you need friends, and to get friends you got to conversate with folks. We might see some people staying around a bit longer because they are conversating with folks and making friends instead of hiding in a cave and beating up gnolls by themselves because socializing is scary.
