Zirella: Oh, welcome back, dear player! Are you here for a little chat? Just use the dark blue keywords again to choose a topic.
Zirella: Right, this was a keyword. But actually there are more interesting topics to talk about.
Zirella: An old woman like me has all the time in the world.
Zirella: We are currently south of the village of Rookgaard, just follow the path to the east. Once you are there, you will meet many other citizens.
Zirella: The main continent is so much bigger than Rookgaard. You can travel there once you are level 8 and have chosen a vocation.
Zirella: The Tibian vocations are knight, paladin, sorcerer and druid, each of them has its own specialities.
Zirella: Knights are strong melee fighters. They usually use weapons such as swords, clubs or axes.
Zirella: Druids are nature magic users, specialised in earth, ice and healing.
Zirella: Paladins are distance fighters and holy magic users. They outrun their enemies and shoot them with arrows or bolts.
Zirella: Sorcerers are elemental magic users, specialised in fire, energy and death magic.
Zirella: Tibia is a huge world with many cities - most of them threatened by monsters. If you help us fighting them, you will earn experience and grow into a strong warrior.
Zirella: There are many cities on the main continent, much bigger than our little village here. You should visit all of them!
Zirella: Here on Rookgaard, we are lucky that the monsters threatening our village are rather weak. I wouldn't want to have the dragons and demons of the main continent here!
Zirella: You'll never forget your first dragon. That is true even after all those years. Fierce beasts they are!
Zirella: There are numerous different demons all over Tibia. They mostly hide deep in dungeons, but sometimes they dare entering the human realm.
Zirella: Most of the citizens are merchants. We have also two guards and a healer, and a teacher in our academy.
Zirella: Everyone in Tibia has a job, and I'm a fisherman! Well - I used to be a famous pirate, to be honest, but all those adventures were too much for me.
Zirella: Hmm hmm, I could tell you some stories about Thais and the old days..
Zirella: We have a weapon smith called Obi, Dixi is selling armors and Al Dee is offering general tools. Also, you can buy potions from Lily. I think those are the most important people to trade with.
Zirella: The bridge guards Dallheim and Zerbrus can tell you which monsters are suitable for your level and where to find them.
Zirella: Our healer is called Cipfried. He guards the temple.
Zirella: The teacher of the academy is called Seymour. The academy is just north of the temple.
Zirella: Thais was the first city in Tibia, back then it was even called 'Tibia City'. There were dragons just outside the gates! ...
Zirella: In the past years, brave adventurers have pushed them back into the dungeons, though. Also, there was this great battle with Ferumbras! Those were the days.
Zirella: He is a mighty and evil wizard. Back then, all Tibians stuck together and managed to defeat him. I heard he fled and found a refuge to recover. ...
Zirella: There is a citadel on one of the Tibian islands which he uses to regain his power. Now and then, brave Tibians invade and weaken him again.
Zirella: Oh sorry, I don't trade. But if you meet other citizens, it can't hurt to ask them for a trade! If they have offers or buy your stuff, they'll tell you.
Zirella: There is a huge cave system under Tibia. Even Rookgaard has many underground dungeons. The bridge guards know all about them.
Zirella: Obi is a skilled smith. If you need weapons, you can buy them at his shop.
Zirella: She's Obi's granddaughter and deals with armors and shields, just upstairs from Obi's shop.
Player: al dee
Zirella: Al Dee sells tools such as torches, ropes and shovels. You will learn about them soon!
Zirella: Lily's shop is just behind the bridge that leads to the village. She sells potions which will refill your health or cure poison.
Player: dallheim or zerbrus
Zirella: He's a great warrior. He can also tell you much about monsters and dungeons on this island.
Zirella: Visiting Cipfried is a good idea if you are badly injured or poisoned. Just ask him for a heal.
Zirella: Seymour is a teacher running the academy. He has many important information about Tibia.
Zirella: Earning experience and gaining levels will make you stronger. It's all about power in Tibia!
Zirella: Well, everybody is a 'warrior' in general. You can choose between four vocations once you are level 8.
Zirella: Oh, you're a bit young to hear about the oracle. Be patient, you'll learn everything in time.
Zirella: Good bye player, may Uman bless you!

Zirella: Always have a look on your health bar. If you see that you do not regenerate health points anymore, eat something.
Zirella: Always eat as much food as possible. This way, you'll regenerate health points for a longer period of time.
Zirella: After you have killed a monster, you have 10 seconds in which the corpse is not moveable and no one else but you can loot it.
Zirella: Be careful when you approach three or more monsters because you only can block the attacks of two. In such a situation even a few rats can do severe damage or even kill you.
Zirella: There are many ways to gather food. Many creatures drop food but you can also pick blueberries or bake your own bread. If you have a fishing rod and worms in your inventory, you can also try to catch a fish.
Zirella: Baking bread is rather complex. First of all you need a scythe to harvest wheat. Then you use the wheat with a millstone to get flour. ...
Zirella: This can be be used on water to get dough, which can be used on an oven to bake bread. Use milk instead of water to get cake dough.
Zirella: Dying hurts! Better run away than risk your life. You are going to lose experience and skill points when you die.
Zirella: When you switch to 'Offensive Fighting', you deal out more damage but you also get hurt more easily.
Zirella: When you are on low health and need to run away from a monster, switch to 'Defensive Fighting' and the monster will hit you less severely.
Zirella: Many creatures try to run away from you. Select 'Chase Opponent' to follow them.
Zirella: The deeper you enter a dungeon, the more dangerous it will be. Approach every dungeon with utmost care or an unexpected creature might kill you. This will result in losing experience and skill points.
