DUMII's help system is also available on the homepage:
As a new player, we recommend that you read:
* 'introduction', 'syntax', 'names' and 'registration'.
New players are automatically put into a Newbie Mode, and whilst in this
mode, you will get hints as you walk around the world. If you do not wish
to see these messages, you can toggle it off, by typing "toggle newbie".
You can at any stage toggle it back on again, though the messages are
meant mostly for low-levelled players only. Some of the messages will be
To make the game more enjoyable for everyone, we've decided on a few

To toggle Newbie Mode on or off, use can either type "newbiemode" or you
can use the TOGGLE command, and type "toggle newbie".
New players will automatically have the Newbie Mode toggled on.
When in Newbie Mode, you will receive hints and occasionally warnings at
various intervals, depending on where you are or what you are doing.
These messages act as a guide around the world, helping you to learn what
commands can be used, and also to show you a little about how the world
works and where some things can be found. Any given message will only be
sent to you once per session, i.e. from when you log in until you log out,
but can be sent to you again during later sessions.
These messages are geared primarily towards players of the first five
levels. By then, you should have a working knowledge of the skills
required by an adventurer in DUMII.
Of course, as a newbie you are not restricted only to the hints you get
when in Newbie Mode. You can at any stage ask others for help, especially
Wizards. To get a Wizard's attention, you can use the WISH or PAGE commands.
There is also a lot of information available in the help pages.
