Smacky's Guides are here presented in the recommended order of reading for new players. But of course, they're intended for reference by all players, so feel free to jump to whichever looks like it will answer your specific question.
To make things even easier for new players, logging in to a server and creating a character are handled in a somewhat tutorial-like way. So you may find it helpful to work though these sections as you run the client for the first time. Click here to do that.
All players should familiarise themselves with these guides
This guide explains character creation, and how Daimonin measures and records your character's identity, abilities, and development.
This guide contains important information on interacting with Daimoninand customoising the client, and reference appendices of commands and default keyboard shortcuts.
Once you understand yourself and how you fit into the world it's time to think about the world into which you fit.
A good way to start is by considering inanimate objects and your inventory and how to view, manipulate, and manage them.
You're never alone in Daimonin. There are, of course, dozens of other players as well as a host of non-player characters with whom you will frequently want to communicate...
... There is also a whole host of mobs with whom you will frequently want to, or at least have to, fight.
Daimonin is a world of magic.
Everybody sells, everybody buys.
If you're happy with your grasp of the topics covered above, you could move on to this expert advice.
This is an advanced guide on the intricacies of fighting mobs and some tactics you might employ.
Read this if you're a combat wombat.
As well as perusing Smacky's Guides it would be a really good idea for new players to read the stickies and maybe browse the other threads in the Newbie Questions forum which contain FAQs not addressed here, more detailed coverage of some technical issues, and lots of other bits of useful information to prevent a new player from looking like a noob.
