Defender of Dragons is a emake of my mud called Reality Bytes. You start out in a room where you are equipped and given gold to purchase a dragon with which you can use to fight alongside you. Step 1, purchase your dragon. Step 2, group with your dragon. Step 3, type gr or group to see that you and your dragon are grouped. You can also see how much experience each of you needs to level. Yes, your dragon levels also! Step 4 decide which direction, from the main room, to go. West to setup your character and learn about the game, or East to skip the tutorials and enter the game.
