- It is possible to competitively PK without scripts, but it takes practice and zone knowledge if you are new
- there is no recall option, have to "call gate" to get inside after dark, or wait for the gates to open before finding an inn and renting
- rent is the proper command at an inn...you probably weren't at an inn, but maybe a tavern, which is different
- plenty of easily loadable scrips for Zmud/Cmud, which is what i'm most familiar with. Wotmud Archives Forms (google it) has plenty of scripts you just copy and paste into the chat bar.
Maps are key for me...they expanded my world of mudding, literally and figuratively. try http://lyren.me/
for zmud/cmud maps.
Make sure you "listen all" and chat again, usually people are receptive to newbies and will readily answer questions.
***i'll be on most of the night, sobriety permitting, and would be happy to give you a walk through and answer any questions
