MUD Commands

Post by lrk89 » Wed Oct 25, 2017 3:38 pm

Being a text based game it helps if you know what commands are available in the game and how to use them. A game guide will be added to the website once Archaicquest gets out of Beta stage. For now I'll add/update the commands here:

All commands can be abbreviated, the game searches for commands you enter in the MUD based on starts with. so n, no, nor, not will match for north as an example.
