Entering the game the first time you find yourself on the Island of Newcomers. It is equipped with all the necessary for basic skills drill. Moreover no one will disturb or attack you here. All the time while you are on the Island there are instructions in the game window, following which you will learn the main operations in the game. When you have fulfilled all the instructions you can boat off the wharf. You will find yourself in the settlement of Farmun.

From here you can start the development of your character. There is a farm in the north of this village, where you can store up chicken-meat, which will give you the first scores of experience and start-up capital. Kill the chickens with help of a club and fry in a microwave oven. Fried chicken-meat can be sold in the shop. Collect the chicken’s feathers – they are used for making arrows, and that’s why they are in great demand in the game.

Soon you will reach the tenth combat level (which corresponds to the level of a newcomer), so you will be able to fight with stronger monsters. Buy for yourself for the money gained in the weapons’ shop (located in the center of the settlement) bronze armors and the first weapon. We recommend you to use weapon – e.g., a sword – combined with a shield to increase the level of your defense. Now you can go down in the mysterious and dangerous caves. For that find a staircase going underground and left-click on it.

Virtually all the caves are combat zones – it means here combats between the players are permitted. That’s why here you can be first attacked. Avoid the players over heads of which there is a triangle. It means this player has already attacked someone and probably has the same intentions towards you. Until you do not have a big combat experience, fight with quite weak monsters – giant rats and scorpions. In this way you can develop the parameters necessary for a combat: strength, dexterity, stamina, level of weapons’ command.

If you have a low level of fatigue, it is high time to have rest and to restore strength. For that you need to sleep on a bed in one of the houses of the settlement Farmun.

It is quite possible that in the caves you will see for the first time ”the red screen of death”. Do not worry – having died, your character will come back to life. At that you will indeed lose all the items in your bag. To avoid big losses to store items you do not need now in a bank. The nearest bank is situated on the military base Ray Sulako.

To get to Ray Sulako go from Farmun along the road to the east. Approximately in the middle of the way you will pass a small back-water where you can fish (for that you need to buy a fishing net).

The entrance to the base is guarded by security robots, but they will do no harm to you. In its center you will find two weapons’ shops and a bank. To use the bank services to talk with the banker and choose a type of services you are interested in.

There are also deposits of different ores on the territory of the base. To start their extraction to buy a pick. Extraction of ores is a profitable business especially for a newcomer. You can sell the ore in the shop or to the other players – blacksmiths and metallurgists. Besides, you can melt the ore in a blast furnace into an ingot metal and to make from it with the help of a press any item (for more details read the section «Professional Skills»). Needless to say that metal costs more than ore and a metal blade is more expensive than an untreated ingot metal!

To that moment you could have already become acquainted with other players. But a real center of trade and social life in the game is the settlement of Baratron! There are we going.

The bank of Baratron settlement is the center of the commercial life of the planet. There are always a lot of players here – both newcomers and old-timers. If you want to sell or buy any item, declare your wish and wait until someone is interested in your offer.

The most different sorts of shops are situated in Baratron. You can buy and read books in the library. The caves, which entry is located in the west of the settlement, are rich in deposits of valuable minerals (though they are equally rich in strong monsters).

By the way, there is a pheasant’s field to the west of Baratron (on the way to Saintrox). If your combat skill is developed enough you can hunt for pheasants – their feathers and meat are valued among the players.
