" Everyone knows what's up with pickles by now. If they came out with some new badass pickle, what's old pickle gonna do ,taste better? Why should I still care about old pickle!? Because old pickle tastes good to someone else? Old pickles taste like shit."
Erepublik is a browser based game that is meant to emulate real life and/or war. What happens in this game is decided almost entirely by the player base and doesn't change on a week to week basis. The game it self is incredibly simple on a day to day basis, but incredibly complicated if you want to really start getting into it.
Essentially, all there is to do in the beginning is eat, work, and train with the military. Three things you'll be doing on a daily basis, and as you do you will unlock more and more features such as the ability to fight in battles for your country, write a news paper for people to enjoy, join political party's and what have you. (One particularly funny political party is "United Loli's of Japan" should you choose to make your home there as I know many of the otaku on Dtoid just might do.
Since I've written a guide on Kol (Kingdom of Loathing ) which can be found in my past blogs. I figured I would write up a quick start guide on this as well, as all of your options may seem overwhelming at first.
If you want to follow along with reading this, the game can be found HERE. I'm going to help walk your threw your first day, if you have any other questions in game about how to play beyond my walk threw, simply PM me in game and I'll be glad to help.
First Step: When selecting where you live (like in the normal sign up process) select where you want to live in the game NOT your actual location. I say this because, in USA particularly most states are now Indonesian terrotories. It's the first mistake I made in the game and the one I regret the most.
Second Step: Find a job
Click on the market place tab and then on "Job Market".
From there, click the small square on the left hand side of the site and click on your desired field. (Manufacturing if you just want to work, you may want to try your hand at the other two if you feel you want to create a business, corporation, or organization later on. ). Be sure to try all the fields and all of the quality levels to see where each industry stands in your country. A particular industry may not be very profitable to you later on in country your in.
From there you simply need to select your skill level (it'll be at 0 stars when you start off) and click "apply". Congratulations you now work for a company , no waiting for call backs and going to incredibly awkward interviews where you may as well be dressed in a dunce cap and awaiting death here.
This parts pretty simple. Click the button once, and you've worked. No grinding, no mining in tunnels for x amount of iron untill your fingers are sore and your wondering why the fuck your wasting so many hours of your life clicking the same goddamn yew tree again...and again.. and again.. ARGGGGGGGGGGGH, where was I going with this? OH YA..
Time to join the army. Whether you want to fight in battles or not, training is necessary to get experience which will help you unlock more features down the road depending on how you want to live your life here.
Same exact principles of your job. Click the button and your done. Alternatively if you want a more through military expirence I'm sure you can contact whoever runs the army in whatever country you've chosen and they will be glad to yell insults at you while insulting the fact your mother ever gave birth to such a sorry piece of...

It's time to buy food now. Preferably food made from a moose. A Møøse once bit my sister ...
Same was as when you were finding a job. Click the small square which lists the options for different items and select "food". This will bring you to the moose stake sandwich page and you will be able to find deliciously cheap moose chops as shown below.
