  One merc is using it to create quests in a pretty imaginative way. For
example, when you first enter the bar, and are low level and have not
done quest yet, the bartender asks if you'd deliver something to
so-and-so somewhere in town. If you say 'yes' then he gives you the
object. You go deliver it and get exp for finishing quest.

  Later I did another where on a corpse i found a letter and a mysterious
magic item to deliver to a mage said to live in moria. Doing this, you could
get exp, gold, another item, information, etc.

I think it's pretty cool. BUT, isn't there a memory leak and bugs in
this system still?
