Could anyone provide information to where you can go to learn more about
how to navigate through a MUD/MOO? A lot of us are relative newcomers to
some of these things and could use more guidance. Is there online
documentation availble on the topic? How do we find and access it? My
daughter loves connecting to a MUD group, but she's too involved to take
time to answer questions! Perhaps on the basis of "Oh, Mom, you're too
old for this sort of thing!"
