Avatar emergency contact procedure
Avatar Emergency Procedure

A Simple guide to Avatar MUD issues & contacting the right people.

1. TROUBLESHOOTING
If you cannot connect to Avatar, try the following to determine the nature of the problem.
You can try one or more of the following
First of all, write down any error message you get

If you do connect but no login screen it might mean the mud's stuck in a loop, send an email.

If you get any message that tells you you cannot connect or that a connection failed, continue and try the following:
- find your command prompt and 'ping avatar.outland.org' to see if you get a response.
- find your command prompt and 'tracert avatar.outland.org' to see where the link starts failing (it might be you!)
- Go to the outland.org website and try using the java applet to connect.

If you cannot ping or complete the trace, there is likely a network issue.
If you can ping/tracert but there is no connection to the mud is is not up.
Any of these shouldn't take more than a minute of your time but is very helpful when we try to determine the
nature of the problem.

2. SEND EMAIL
Send an email with all the possible info you gathered to forum@outland.org
Using this mailer, you inform both the immortals and your fellow players of the issues.

As soon as possible, an Immortal will respond to let you know it's being looked into.
You may use other forms of communication (facebook, outland.org, pigeons, etc) as well.
But unless the email is down as well, the forum mailer is the best way to reach the largest audience.
Please do not contact individual Immortals as they might not be able to assist you at that given time.

Not a member of the Avatar forum mailer? See help mailman on the mud.

As a follow-up to my last comment, I was finally able to re-do the Dark Acolyte quest!

A recent update broke one of the quests in Arx Nivea but the fixes are now in. The Dark Acolyte Quest is now doable post-remort! Also, the main quest has been rebalanced. Enjoy!
