Guide for New Players
Space Station 13 is a multiplayer roleplaying game developed using the BYOND engine. In Space Station 13 (from here on to be referred to as SS13 or BS12, short for "Baystation 12," our specific variant), players take the role of workers on a space station. There are many different jobs available, and each player chooses and plays a role in the space station. On our server, Baystation 12, we are a dedicated roleplaying community where you can play a variety of roles aboard the SEV Torch, ranging from members of the esteemed Expeditionary Corps of Sol Gov, a Boot straight out of training from the Fleet or the Marines, a researcher from the NanoTrasen Corporation, a contractor working for your own gains, or a civilian who hopped along for the ride. The frontier is a dangerous place, however, and all sorts of horrible things can happen to you. Spies, saboteurs, hostile aliens, dangerous computer programs, and people with seemingly supernatural abilities. Accidents happen, and it's a very thin barrier that holds the uncaring, airless space at bay.
This tutorial was designed to give you a jumpstart into BS12 and begin learning the game and it's mechanics.
