or maybe a more general system for allowing the transportation of 
obj/mobs/players?  i dunno..

ugh, a REALLY bad idea.  even if it uses 100 mana points, people will 
still use it all the time to get around mobs they dont want to have to 
deal with or to do mass transportation of PC that could not normally get 
to a location on foot.  I just normally see this spell as a big "cheat" 
on most muds.  Though I guess if it gets imped I'll just hack it back out.

Yea, this is generally a "good thing".  Any chance of including it in 
Circle 3.0?  It would also be great to be able to give special procs to 
rooms so that you could have a volcano that occationally cast a fireball 
in the room, or similar things.
