Help: Rooms

Reboot, or 'boot' as it is commonly called is when the mud shut downs for a moment, restarts and during this most of the areas are reset; objects on the ground disappear and so on. Also some items you are carrying, like keys and some other items that normally cannot be stored in a chest disappear at reboot. If you are in a no-save room (typing 'save' shows if this is the case) your carried items will not be saved. You can do 'tell damogran boot' for info on next reboot. BatMUD reboots every day at noon EET (Eastern European). To save your stuff without carrying it you can put it into a chest or a rentroom. Rentrooms can be found in Arelium in Laenor and Shadowkeep in Rothikgen, they cost 3000/2400 gold per day respectively. Remember that they store up to ten items for 24 hours only. If you do not pick up your stuff before then or prolong the rent, your items are lost. Gone. NEW PLAYERS: The Last Keg Inn in Dortlewall (the village where you start from) has reserved an inn room for you in the accommodation area upstairs. Also, if you can still access Pleasantville (another newbie area near Arelium), you can rest safely at an inn located directly to the north from the Central Square. You need a safe place to store your chest in so nobody can steal your stuff. While rentrooms provide you with total protection from thieves, they are quite expensive. If you store your belongings in a chest, you need to provide the protection yourself. Chests can be stored either in playercity rooms, or they can be dug into the ground somewhere in the outworld. The latter is not commonly used since it is quite unsafe. Chests can be bought from merchants, and their cost varies according to how many items they can store. Look at the carts around Arelium to see if there are any chests for sale, or ask for one on the 'wanted' channel. You can rent or buy a room in a playercity and store your chest there. Playercity costs can vary a lot as they are defined by players. Usually you can find a room for a little above 10k gold per RL month. If you want to buy it, it can cost over ten times as much. If you want to buy a room, make sure to check if the room comes with a guard. You will probably want a guard that can block possible intruders from invading. Guards come in various shapes and forms, and they can be bought from the recruitment office of the playercity. by Shardik Carthaigh (with Malar's help).
