I accomplished this by creating a player flag to indicate if they wanted 
the condition of the mob they were fighting, along the lines of the ones 
for hp, etc in the current configurable prompt.  Then when they prompt is 
done, I just plugged in acheck for the condition.  Seemed fairly easy.

I just removed the ability to immort entirely and didnt give a message.  
I figure that by the time a player has reached level 30, they damn well 
better already know my rules on immorting and such.  I just poped a 
message about the rule in the motd, and immort candidates manually as I 
feel they deserve it.

I think I posted all the code for that a long while back... maybe Jer can 
make the archive of the Circle mud mailing list available on his WWW 
page?  :)  ( I think I recall he said he was archiving most all of em...)
