Well, your CON is suppose to represent how "hearty" you are. I guess you 
could get "uglier" too, but considering it doesn't have any other bearing 
on the game, losing a point of CHA isn't gonna bother players.

Its called rules and supervision. No matter how much coding you do, a mud 
can NEVER run on its own. Players find ways around things, and you must 
have some diplomatic rules. I allow PKing within 3 or so levels for any 
reason. However if you PK someone really far out of your level range, its 
logged and usually an IMM or WIZ will ask you why. We usually allow PKing 
for EQ. We like the idea that: if you cant defend it, you dont deserve to 
have it. Its rude and primal, but if they're higher level and you have a 
bitchin ass weapon, you should be able to defend yourself. We also 
occasionally allow PKing for grudges. (i.e. he called me a ..., or he was 
making fun of my sister or things like that)

well, i've got a working wall of fog spell, but i doubt if it is any
efficient ;)  basically, when a player moves into a room or does look,
it checks all the objects in the room for a "fog" object.  if it finds
one, it obscures their vision:

	for (j = world[ch->in_room].contents; j; j = next_thing) {
	  next_thing = j->next;
	  if (GET_OBJ_VNUM(j) == 32) {
		send_to_char("A cloud of fog obscures your vision", ch);

but, to have to go through all the objects in a room, every time any
player moves into any room, seems like a grossly inefficient way to do
this.  anybody have any suggestions on a better way to go about this?
