How to Play TriadCity
The TriadCity Players' Guide
Etiquette: don't loot the Donation Room
Donated items are specifically for the use of newbies: young characters who arrive in the World naked and vulnerable. It's extremely uncool for experienced characters to take those items. The most uncoolest act of all is to take them in order to sell them somewhere.
You should carefully note that not all of "The Gods" are equally patient. There are certain high-level Immortals who are very focused on assisting newbies. Offend them, and strange and subtle things may happen. Doors that once were open may become locked; Skills may atrophy; strength may wane; courage may fail; fountains may dry up. Offending actions may be noted in public. Bad idea.
