Class Guilds have master teachers who are willing to teach you skills and spells for a price. Like all major urban centers, Midgaard has many interesting and important shops, as well as an impressive Temple, dedicated to the pagan God Odin. Short and long term lodging is available in Midgaard at a competitive rate. Midgaard is the most populous of the hometowns on JediMUD and is strongly recommended for newbies.
