1.5 Setting Up Your Character

A new character is essentially a blank slate, having only a name, a dbref, a password, a flag or two, and some pennies. In order to become a fully functioning part of the MUCK world, you will need to do a few things to get your character set up. The following section describes a very basic set up. Most of the things you'll do in this section involve setting `properties'. A property is a named location on a MUCK object where information is stored. Properties are discussed fully in Section 2; you don't need to understand exactly how MUCK handles properties in order to set up your character. Any commands you issue at this stage are reversible, so don't worry about making mistakes. Simply re-enter the command correctly.
