In Xiphos' absence I was planning to create a short guide for new players just going over the basics of installation and building a house. I became somewhat carried away and ended up creating this many paged monster.
It covers everything from making your house to your first cart, coffin, and some new tools. It then contains some advanced guides such as flatraising and surface mining, then tells you about the benefits of going premium, and the differences between the servers.
Due to its large size there are probably going to be quite a few mistakes, such as missing pictures, even though I have proof read it several times, so if you find any mistakes please send me a PM or ask in IRC. Post suggestions for additions for the guide below along with other comments, so when someone comes to use the guide they don't need to be worried about whether mistakes below have been fixed, as I will try and fix them as soon as I hear about them.
