Looking for new adventures I chose the oldest Diku mud in existance. Unfortunately, the newbie training area is flawed in design. It allows a character to find themselves facing a trainer who will kill you and in my case inside a dark room without the equipment to leave.
No helpful hints in the room text to suggest an escape route or command. The only equipment provided was a purple potion whereas in my opinion a lamp would have allowed the user to see their way around.
Allowing a new player to end up in a room with no plausible escape leads to nothing but frustration and does nothing for player retention.
