So, you’ve finally taken my not-so-subtle hints and tried an Iron Realms Entertainment free MMORPG and now you’re a newbie. Fun! You’re having trouble breaking the ice. Unfun! Let’s see what kinds of options are available for you, shall we?

The first, best thing any newbie can do is announce that they’re new to their affiliated organisations. “Hello, I’m new to the realms. Could someone show me around?” Often, this is a good opportunity to bond with a person and learn new things along the way.

If you get the option, as a newbie, to join a house or guild, these are excellent places to make friends and form lasting relationships. There’s really little benefit to being a rogue if the choice is available to join a house or guild from the beginning, especially if you’re a true newbie to MUDs.

If there is a newbie channel, don’t be afraid to ask questions there. In most games that have them, these are monitored by older players who will answer your questions regardless of their factions.

In fact, don’t be afraid to ask questions, period. If you’re new, most intelligent players will understand and try to help. Make yourself known to people by asking questions and that will show them that you’re serious about fitting into the game.

Newbies make mistakes, don’t ever forget that. If an older player corrects you, don’t take it personally. Learn from it, they’re trying to help you succeed!

In Iron Realms Entertainment’s best MUDs, there is an extensive system for assisting new players already set in place. Between the newbie channels and vast libraries of help scrolls, it’s hard to go wrong. Try a free MMORPG from Iron Realms today and get your newbie on with no download required!
