Newbie Guide, Basics - World
ZombieMUD, and MUDs in general, are built up from 'rooms'. Each room
consists of a description of where you are and possible exits to
adjacent 'rooms'. Many rooms also feature things to do in, secrets to
search for, and other types of interaction, as well as items, other
players, NPCs (non-player characters) and monsters.
The world of ZombieMUD, aka the 'outworld' is a massive realm consisting
of well over million rooms. In the outworld you can find places like
cities, dungeons, forests, guilds, mines, etc. These are called 'areas'.
There are well over a hundred areas to explore, consisting of over
15,000 unique, hand crafted rooms.
Areas vary both in size and difficulty. Some areas are meant for
newbies, some only for higbie parties, some have only a few rooms, some
have hundreds. Exploring carelessly can and will get you killed, so you
have been warned.
