That's it! But just in case you run into trouble:
When you open the game, you will have to type in a username and password. The account will be created. Once you select the shard to play on (doubleclick Excelsior), you can pick what profession you would like for your character. You can choose "Advanced" and set your skills and stats however you'd like. By default, you can have up to 5 characters. It's possible to later upgrade and recieve an extra character, having a total of 6.
- If you get a "Your account credentials are invalid" message, that means that the username is already taken (or you typed in the wrong password).
- If you get a "There is some problem communicating with Origin" message, that means that there already exist a username that has previously connected with your IP. In this case, if a member of your household already has an account on this shard, have them login into their account and then type [account in game. There you will see an option to request an additional account for a member of the household. We strongly advise that you carefully read the disclaimer that will be shown to you. We only allow one account per person, and an account may only be used by it's owner.
- Still can't get in? Contact us by email. The email address can be found on our frontpage.

We support a few extra graphics, it is recommended that you download the prepatched client. But if you would rather use one you already have installed, first check if your version is between 5.0.0 and 188.8.131.52. Then edit your Login.cfg file (with any text editor, such as Notepad), and change the existing address and port to point to our server. Your login.cfg file has to contain the following line:
You can download the "Mondain's Legacy" version for free from CNET.com on this page (when you download and install it, edit the login.cfg file as described above).
Manual patching (644 MB): The server supports many extra custom graphics - mounts, equipment and colors. To see them, you need to have the correct modifications.
Then, download and run the Expatcher (download link at the top of the pag).
Can be used only if you already have client 5.0.9 installed. Once you download the file, unzip the contents in your client folder. More instructions are available on this forum post.
