I joined OS about a month and a half ago. In the beginning, I was uninterested and just wanted to wander around. The friendly staff answered every question I had, and they still do. Unless the question is incredibly obvious, it is answered as soon as someone knows the answer. Furthermore, I was unable to simply 'wander around'. In the first two days, I got a job with a Military and have gotten huge RP from it ever since. RP is completely mandatory and I love it. It adds so much to the game that hack-and-slashes don't have. Have you ever said to yourself while reading a sci-fi book, 'I wish I could do that...'? If you have, then Otherspace is the place for you. Everything's interactive, it's most of the fun.
