o, we've been running in the cloud now for a while, and after some initial problems, things seem to be calming down....By Karn.
I have set up an event for October that anyone can be a part of. It has a full plot and requires teamwork, and it will be moderated by myself. I plan on keeping things fair as far as the event goes, and will even be utilizing the /roll 10 command to ensure things remain balanced.
If you're interested in participating in the event, please sign up here:

I look forward to hanging out when the event rolls around!

o I am currently evaluating moving Karchan into "the Cloud"....By Karn.
Welcome to Karchan!
There are a few things you should know as you proceed.
First and foremost, to make a new character, hit 'New Character' on the top menu. This will take you to a page where you can choose what your character looks like.
There are three options for race: human, elf, and dwarf. You are not restricted to those races once you play though. If you contact a deputy, you can ask to have your race changed to a variety of options. Have a look at our wiki for inspiration!
Once you have chosen how your character looks, scroll down to where it says 'Submit'. This will log you into the game if you chose a name that hasn't been taken already. If the name has been taken already, you'll receive a message saying the name already exists.
Things you should do once you're logged in:
1. Hit submit often!
Hitting submit refreshes your screen without executing a command. People may be trying to reach out to you and you won't see their messages unless you hit submit to refresh your screen.
2. Type newbie guide for a general shakedown of commands.
Doing so explains how you can post, how you can talk to people, and how you can see who is logged on at any given time.
3. Type newbie geography to learn about the different areas in game.
That will help you maybe decide where you want to focus some of your rp in or where you want your character to be from.
4. Join our Discord (link on main page) for instant access to admins and players! The community wants to help you!
We're always ready to help as new players arrive. Drop in and introduce yourself. While you're at it, get some questions answered!
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask! The above commands can be used anywhere for easy reference.
This is an OOC note about my newest area, Esmeraulde.
Esmeraulde is a sky-realm, meaning it is suspended magically in the sky above Karchan somewhere. It has been "hidden" for quite some time. I've built a lot of lore around the space, from false gods, to an actual wrathful god, to a new race associated with it. I'd like for everyone to please take a moment to explore it. Find your way there, explore, learn the lore, and if you have a character that likes the place, consider moving there. There's plenty of space and I can always grow it as needed for ideas.
To find it, look for books in various libraries across Karchan and see if one piques your interest. There's a specific book that can get you up there if you read the instructions just right, so hunt a bit.
Remember that all commands are lowercase without punctuation!
If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a MUDmail or message me on Discord. I will happily answer whatever I can without spoiling things you can find up there.
