CHECK IN (verb)
The CHECK IN verb is a special verb used to enter the Character Manager System. When Simutronics moved to a largely web interface, this verb became less important. It does have three special use cases remaining.
- During the first 30 days of a free account, players may adjust the character's stats five times (option 10).
- Those players who wish to re-roll their character completely.
- Those players who wish to include the character's current FAME status in the appropriate fame lists.
Also, a character can check to see if they have (or more accurately, do not have) redux. Upon exiting the Character Manager System, a character that does not have redux receives the messaging:
[Current skills bonus is insufficient to gain DF reduction.]
Conversely, a character with redux does not receive this messaging.
- Note: There is no in-game help messaging associated with this verb. Also, the CHECK IN verb is actually an extended use of the verb CHECK (verb)
