BatMUD Player's manual
First of all, you need to be at least level 20 to be able
to reincarnate normally (a spell cast by a druid, the first
option in this helpfile). If you are below level 20 but
want a reinc, see the second option, Mortis.
Reincarnation is a way of starting over but keeping (most of)
your achieved experience points. After reincarnation you
get to choose a new background, race, alignment and all
the things you chose when you created your character - your
name will, however, remain the same. You also get to keep
your task points, quests, explore, age and settings. After
reinc your character will be very young again.
There are several ways to reincarnate in BatMUD.
The first option is the most common; find a member of
the druids guild ('who guild druids') and pay her some money
for the spell, 'help spell reincarnation'. After you have
found a druid that is willing to cast the spell you need to
die, because the spell must be cast on a dead person. While
dead you 'accept reinc from ', she casts the
spell, you are moved into reincarnation room and from there
on you just follow the instructions in re-creating yourself.
If you wish to choose an undead race, such as a zombie or
skeleton, get your reincarnation cast by an evil priest
instead. Take a look at 'help spell reanimation'.
When the creation is done, you find yourself in the Church
with your experience points on you as safe experience. You
cannot lose them by dying, so take your time and spend them
The 'reinc tax' will eat away some of your experience. If
enough time has passed since your last reincarnation, the tax
will be lower.
The second option is to approach Mortis (find him in Arelium's
Church of all Gods) and type 'reinc me'. The reinc tax on
your experience will be somewhat higher than in the first
The third option is an unhappy one. Your character will grow
old, especially if you die a lot. You can see your character's
age when you type 'score', for example:
You feel thirsty, very young and brave
After very young you will become 'young', then 'middle-aged'...
and when you reach 'ancient' the next step will be a forced
reinc with a HIGH reinc tax.
The fourth option called 'recreate' is only available to
newbies. See 'help recreate' for more details. This process is
free both money and expwise.
- All objects you carry will be transferred to your inventory
upon completing the reinc. Cash is deposited to bank.
- If you make a bad mistake in your reinc, you might want to
reinc again quickly; if less than four hours have passed, your
reinc tax will be very low.
