Messages during Combat

This is the 2nd time I've run into a specific combat oriented problem....
I first tried to code a prompt that returned the condition of the mob
a PC was fighting during each round of combat. The second thing I did was
change the immorting system so that a player could not immort simply by
gaining enough exp, but was sent a message saying he was already at the
limit for experience, every time he hit anything, which obviously would be
during combat.

In both cases, the relevant message would appear some dozen times per each
round of combat, when I obviously only want it to appear once. The first
time I asked about this, someone mentioned wait states. Could any of you
who have any ideas tell me specifically what I should do to keep this from
Many thanks,
Nino Ruffini
