Welcome to ShinyMUD, a text-based Multi-User-Dungeon from the silly folks at
Incendiary Software.

-- Software Requirements --

To run ShinyMUD you'll need:
* Python, version 2.6 or higher
* A Unix-based operating system (Linux, MacOSX)

If you're developing ShinyMUD, you'll also want Nose for running unit tests.
See http://shiny.incendiarysoftware.com/wiki/UnitTesting for more details.

-- Starting ShinyMUD --

* Open a terminal and cd to the shinymud directory (the directory this README file is in).

* If you've never run the MUD before, you can run the set-up wizard by
entering the following command: 
    python src/shinymud/main.py setup
(The setup wizard just runs you through creating an administrative (or God)
character, adding built-in areas, and then starting the game server.)

* If you're just looking to start the game server, just run the following command:
    python src/shinymud/main.py start

ShinyMUD will start running on the default port of 4111. You can change the
port number (as well as lots of other things) in: src/data/config.py
