The tasks system is something else that helps newbies acclimate to Achaea. The tasks are a form of tutorial that allows newbies to work at their own pace. Many of the introductory tasks must be completed before more advanced tasks, such as city tasks are available.
Another advantage of being a newbie is the use of the portals command. Newbies are allowed instant teleportation to the Ring of Portals, from where a number of key locations can be accessed.
A newbie guide has been set up on the Achaean Lore, and it can be found categorised below. It is filled with answers to commonly asked questions and bits of advice for Achaea's newest members.
