1.3 Getting a Character
MUCK server has a provision for automatic character
generation, but usually this is disabled. Instead, you'll need to send
email requesting a character. The contents of the email you send will
MUCK: some simply ask for
the character name you want, others require your real name, your age,
and your state or country of residence. Help files on the
MUCK or people online should give you more specific
news registration or
for a helpfile or
staff for a list of people
responsible for answering such questions are good first steps for
finding this information.
Once your character is approved and created, you will be sent email
containing the character's name (usually the name you asked for) and
your password. Sometimes you request a password; sometimes it is
randomly assigned. Random passwords may be changed to something
memorable once you connect. Passwords are case-sensitive: `flipFlap' and
`flipflap' are two different passwords.
Character creation by this method usually takes a day or two.
MUCKs that allow automatic character creation, use
create command at the log on screen:
> create Cashmere flipFlap
