This text is mainly for players who have already played other muds, and want to skip some of the basic help text. However, since many MUME characteristics are unique to it, you are advised to read the newbie help information anyway. This page is also useful as a quick memory reference for new players.

An example of a command that is very different in Mume than some other muds is how QUIT works, this difference can be quite a shock if you didn't read FAQ2.
