Age Of War
This is a step-by-step guide that will help you create your first Age Of War character.

First of all, you need a mud client, we recommend that you download zMUD (for the average player) or WinTin (for the more experienced mudder). You can use just plain telnet but it can be harder to use for mudding than a mud client.

After you have installed the client, boot it up, set the host to ageofwarmud.org and the port to 4000. Soon you will be on the road to adventure.

By what name do you wish to be known?
The first prompt is where you place the name that you wish to be called by others on the mud. After you are done typing in your name, simply press enter.

Did I get that right, Metallifan (Y/N)?
This prompt appears to make sure that you have spelled everything correctly. If you have not, simply type n, and enter, and then go to the next step. If you did spell it right, simply hit Y and skip the next step.
New character.
Give me a password for Metallifan:
Here is where you place your password. Please use a password that is not easily "hacked", because even if you are not using your account, you are liable for your account. The mud will not show you what your password is as a safety feature of peeping eyes.
Please retype password:
When prompted with this, you will retype your password to make sure you typed it correctly the first time. Like the first time, your password will not show when typed.
What is your sex (M/F)? 
Here is where you type in your sex. M for male, F for female, quite simple :)
