Setting Up Your Kit

You start off the game with very little, the stuff you may have purchased in Pumpkin Town and a couple bob. The money you have will not go too far on the Discworld.

Fortunately we have the newbie box, just for you. If you head west from the entrance (the room with the statue of Mazda) you will eventually pass by some guards who let you pass because you know the password. Go west until you reach the kitchen, then head up the stairs and go sw. The box will be on the floor. Take what you need. Warm clothing a weapon or two and a yellow stone ring are all good ideas.

Please remember this box when you are a little older. donations are always welcome

Now then let's talk a little bit about some of the gear for starting out.
