FOR MENTORS - Achaea Online Help

6.13.1 FOR MENTORS

The mentoring system in Achaea is a system that is designed to ensure a
friendly reception into Achaea by newbies. When you wish to mentor someone, you
would type MENTOR <adventurer>. You must be in the room with him at the time.
PROTEGES will list any proteges you currently have.

In return for taking on the responsibilities of a mentor, you will gain 5% of
the first four credit purchases your protege makes, up to 1000 total credits of
purchases by the protege. These credits will be received as bound.

Under NO circumstances are you to ask the newbie if he or she intends to buy
credits.

The responsibilities of you as a mentor are to answer all questions about
Achaea that a newbie has, to the best of your ability, and to, at the very
least, help him to help himself. You may choose to give him gold, or equipment,
but at the least, you must help him go ratting, help him find other things to
fight, and perhaps even help him do some quests or kill some things. If your
protege needs help, you are expected to help him or her. The privilege of
mentorship means that your proteges come first, and you come second. If you
cannot handle this, do not be a mentor.

Once the newbie has either purchased credits or played for at least 25 hours,
he will likely need less help, but you should still be willing to grant
reasonable assistance if need be. Remember that it is to your advantage to help
him out. The more interested in Achaea he becomes, the more likely he will be
to buy credits, and the more credits you will get.

We take the position of mentor seriously, and if you are not performing your
duties as a mentor, then you risk having your ability to be a mentor taken
away.

Tips for Mentors:
1) When dealing with newbies, always try to be in-role.
2) Even if it is not entirely in-role, be patient with them. Remember that
   Achaea is probably much different from their previous mudding
   experience (if any).
3) Don't try to push them to buy credits. It's the sort of thing you might
   want to casually work into a conversation if the newbie asks about
   other ways to get lessons, but any hard-selling is strictly out of the
   question.
4) To sum it all up: Be professional. You are representing Achaea to newbies,
   who are the lifeblood of the world.
