Would it be possible to have a new mob capable of distributing these
FAQ sheets, since the old ones no longer do. NPH trans mobs being -mourn-
defunct, and the only other one who gave them out on request not doing it
It takes a far longer time to explain everything written in the FAQ
than to just tell a newbie to "read FAQ", and if they lost it because
they couldn't find their corpses after dying, which happens to many
true newbies, it would at least be possible to give them another copy.
Or perhaps have FAQ sheets sold in hometowns much like the current
hometown maps are?

I think it's doable, easy, and probably belongs in the OOC. But
then again, you can always ask an imm to load one, we can do it
spiffily and for free and we even deliver!

Except that lots of us don't have load.
I like hometown mobs doing it, to be honest. ooc is good
too, but how many newbies know about ooc to begin with?
Selling em is a good idea, except that if a newbie lost
his faq in his corpse, he/she probably also lost his/her
money along with it....

Also there are quite often times when there are no visible
imms. OK there might be some around, but they usually don't
respond. They could be worth 0gp as well. I think I
remember some items being worth 0 in shops, but I could be
wrong. Or an Innkeeper would load one and give it to you if
you ask. -shrug- Good idea overall anyway.

Eumaios (innkeeper in Ithaca) will give you a faq sheet if
you ask him almost any newbieish question.

Perhaps the faq could be duplicated in the help files somehow, so that
'help faq' would give you a listing of topics from the faq?
