When I log out, does my character stay in-game?
Yes. Logging out in the street is generally a bad idea, as you can be killed in your sleep. It's always best to log out either in the Cube Hotel, or in your apartment (if you own one). Type to make it your default home, and to quit.
When I die, what happens to my stats, money, and inventory?
Your stats will be reset back to what they were the last time you updated your clone. This includes your experience and improvement points as well. You will be charged a fee for each new clone. Your inventory stays with your body. Your money stays safe with you. Your finance chip is automatically updated with your balance when you are cloned. If you have no money when you die, you'll just lose more experience points.
How do I spend XP? What are XP for?
Like in most RPGs, XP represent character improvement. You generally gain them through killing opponents or performing quests. Sometimes you may even get them from generous admins. XP are spent by learning skills from trainers or skilled players. See Quickstart Guide for more information about trainers and XP.
Where can I practice skills?
Rolf's Gym in Slagtown or Brucie's Gym in Corpclave. There are weight machines for Brawn, speed bags for Reflexes, rowing machines for Endurance, even a climbing wall (only at Rolf's). Try them out to see how your character improves or go here to learn more about gymming.
How can I reset my character and start over?
Go to Clone Arrangers and type Character Generation. However, be warned that you'll come back if you die in a unique and fun way that happens to be an achievement or journal- since those will update your clone for you!. Your clone will be deleted and the next time you die you will be back in
What are the easy beasties?
Use the appraise command (Freedom City killing dogs.) to check something out before attacking. This will give you a general idea of that creatures power level relative to your own. Also, try the Gein Foundation orphanage, the crack mansion, or just walking around
Can apartments be vacated?

Where can I get water?
Look around for a pool. There is one as you enter Crater Rim from southeast Slagtown.

There's a statue at one of the northern junctions of FC where you can drink water from too.

Try to look here or ask on chatnet. Don't expect just honest and helpful answers though.
Can I remove a mutation and free up one of my mutation slots for something cooler?
Mutations can be removed, although the process has significant disadvantages. It would be best to consider them permanent changes to your character. Mutations cannot be removed individually, demutating removes every mutation you have.
Does updating your clone let you keep your mutations?
Yes. The changes to your character's DNA are recorded by the clone bank's scanner.
How do I cure exhaustion?
Sit down for a spell.
It says I'm sick and all my stats suck!
If you still have the N tag, it probably will go away with time. Try to avoid getting attacked as most of your skills are going to be fairly useless until you shrug off the infection.
PROTIP: If you know a corpmate or a friend with good medic skill, ask them to diagnose you anyway, it only takes a second, and could discover if it's something worse like zombie rot.
