How to Play Midgaard
The Midgaard Players' Guide
Etiquette: use the 'afk' command
If you're going to be away from your keyboard for any length of time, use the afk command. This lets other characters know that you're not there to read their tell, ask, or page, so that they don't wait for you to respond.
In Midgaard, it's considered very rude to leave your keyboard without setting the afk flag. Please do.
