A basic web client is available to connect and play immediately. You can launch this by clicking the large
Play Now buttons on the home page. It is also suggested to first sign in outside of the game so the web client immediately connects as that character.
The web client has a few features. It uses GMCP through web sockets in order to have stat bars at the bottom. The sidebar contains basic information about the current room you are in: Name, exits, PCs, and NPCs. At the bottom of the sidebar is a mini map of the zone. This is a 5x5 map centered on your character.
