This will start a server on port 5555 that you can connect with using the
local.tin tintin++ config. Ecto reset will include a sample area, classes, skills, and a login. You can also load http://localhost:4000/ in your browser for the admin panel and web client.

A web client is hosted by the game. Once it is running locally, you can access it via http://localhost:4000/play.
There is an admin panel located at http://locahost:4000/admin that you can build out the game in. Create zones, rooms, npcs, items, etc. in the panel. They will become live instantly on creating or updating.
You can see more on exventure.org.
Prometheus metrics are set up and will be reported on
/metrics. You may want to have nginx deny requests to this endpoint or whitelist it for IPs, etc.
