Out of curiosity, I was wondering if an option to skip the tutorial had been considered recently. I think other IRE games have had this option in the past, but I imagine it works better for the M.U.D.S with smaller populations.
I think there are some obvious pros and cons that would come along with this feature, but thought it might warrant an interesting discussion.
Off the top of my head, pros: Easier for current or returning players to jump back in and explore new aspects of the game (Cities, classes, RP). Saves us the time and redundancy of killing pygmies. Potentially redistributes players across the game which is always fun.
Cons: Fluxes of alts during RP events, trolls, and newbies who think they are ready to skip the tutorial but then find themselves lost and confused 5 minutes later. Maybe an option to return to the tutorial under level 21?
