Re: Ideas on Death

To make death a little more serious than on typical muds but not as bad as
permanent death, we had a "death ban."   When a character died, they were
unable to enter the game again until a certain length of time had passed.
For characters up to level 10, there was no ban... characters could enter
the game again immediately after dying.  For levels 11-20, characters could
not reenter the game for an hour.  Levels 21 and above could not come back
for 24 hours.  Players could always play another character while waiting
for another one to come back.

The only hard part about coding this is the mud really needs to be stable
enough to run a while before reboots or crashes, to give players a chance
to recover their equipment.
