Like everything else in Eulora 1, the tips greeting newly connected players brought new life to an old form, generally turning common and stale anything on its head quite irreverently and with great effect. Since some of these tips still get quoted at times, I'm publishing my list of them here for vicarious enjoyment and, possibly, for easy reference as well:

  1. Welcome to Eulora! May your stay be preposterously prosperous.

  18. Learning is not compulsory. Neither is survival.
  19. There are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
