(such as "spell" or "MUD Basics")

   There are many types of weapon available on the MUD.  Some are slashing 
weapons, some are bludgeoning weapons and others are stabbing weapons.  

   Weapon quality is given as a dice roll with possible modifications to the
likelyhood to hit or the amount of damage.  For instance, a long sword might
be a 1d8 weapon.  This means that it does a random amount of damage between 1
and 8 every time you HIT.  A rapier is a 2d4, +5% attack weapon, meaning that
its damage is from 2 to 8 with a 5% bonus to the user's attack skill.  The
rapier is therefore the better weapon because its damage is higher and it hits
a bit more often.
