Welcome Londonblack, hope you enjoy the game as much as we all do. Few things for ya, /y is global chat in game and /w [name] is whisper. Eating is done by fishing, which requires a pole, also you can forage for oats, flowers and such. You do not have to pick fishing or foraging in your character creation, it is a gathering skill and can be used by anyone. If you have any questions or issues, please ask in game or post here in the forums, the community is a great one and we are all here to help and have fun. Again, welcome to Xsyon!
thanks everyone and tredo for the miniguide.
A special Hiya! to my fellow canadian. Your name looks familiar; did i try and kill you the other day? I got my butt kicked and lost my axes and fishing pole. Things are a little rough atm. 8)
