* This is a PK Mud.  Characters here may interact fully with each other,
  but beware the consequences, we are civilized.
 
* CHARACTERS DO *NOT* save until second level.  Also, playing multiple
  characters at once will result in deletion of characters in question.

* HELP CHANGES will give a list of changes made to the MUD.
 
* Yes, we've kept the Mud School, the reason being it can be *very* helpful,
  particularly for the newbie who has never played a MUD.

* Racial languages have been introduced.  It is recommended that you learn
  (practice) COMMON first, so that you'll be able to more easily
  communicate with the other races.  HELP LANGUAGE for more details.

* TELLs and other channels are not totally secure (although such security was 
  not even implied). Thieves of sufficiently high level can eavesdrop on them...
 
* Multi-playing is not allowed.  Only one character online at one time per
  person is allowed.  This includes link-dead characters.

* Please don't share your character with other people.

* City guards are racist, so be careful!

* New users please type HELP NEWBIE for some introduction and help getting
  started.

* All players should type HELP POLICY and familiarize themselves with all
  the MUD rules.

* Remember "finger mudadm@primenet.com" is the quickest way to find out if
  the MUD is down due to network glitches or other reasons.

* I encourage everyone to subscribe to tfc-announce.  Type
