I believe you are already transported somewhere when you die, I could be
wrong, I'm just starting out with Circle. Look around in the code,
espicially when someone enters the game, as they are placed in a certain
place. Use something like that code when they die.

Look at the code for toggle. I would guess its in act.informative.c, but I
could be wrong. Make a function called do_autolist, and use the code from
toggle to display the auto* flags as on or off. Then add the command
autolist to the appropriate places in interpreter.c

Look at the gossip code, in act.comm.c I believe. Make something like that
, only change all the instances of gossip to pray. Shouldn't be too
difficult. Also, might want to add a toggle to let them turn it on and
off, that code should be in with the rest of the gossip stuff. If you want
only gods to see it, before the section where it broadcasts the message
(not sure what that looks like, you will have to find it yourself) put an
if to check their level..

We aren't going to write the code for you :P

Whatever you do, though, don't ask for documentation besides that included
with circle. They don't appreciate that here.. *shudder*
