<p>MOO Canada is a kind of virtual reality, in which players move about from place to place manipulating their environment in what we hope are amusing, entertaining, or enlightening ways.</p>

<p>MOO Canada is more of a pastime than a game in the usual sense; there is no `score' kept, there are no specific goals to attain in general, and there's no competition involved.  MOO Canada participants explore the virtual world, talk to the other participants, try out the weird gadgets that others have built, and create new places and things for others to encounter and enjoy.</p>

<p>Most commands have the form of simple English sentences:</p>
<pre>
    &lt;verb&gt;
</pre>
<pre>
    &lt;verb&gt;  &lt;direct object&gt;
</pre>
<pre>
    &lt;verb&gt;  &lt;direct object&gt;  &lt;preposition&gt;  &lt;indirect object&gt;
</pre>
<p>Don't use English articles (e.g. 'a', 'an', or 'the') in your commands; the MOO won't understand them.  You can refer to yourself as 'me' and the room you're in as 'here'.</p>

<topics title="The first five kinds of commands you'll want to know are listed below.  Type 'help &lt;topic&gt;' for details on any of them:">
<topic name='look'>getting a description of the current room or any other object</topic>
<topic name='say'>speaking to the other players in the same room as you</topic>
<topic name='emote'>making actions instead of saying everything</topic>
<topic name='@who'>showing which players are currently connected to the MOO</topic>
<topic name='movement'>how to move around in the MOO, from room to room</topic>
<topic name='@quit'>disconnecting from the MOO</topic>
