Doesn't work. Only works on merc and merc variants, I think.

This is a VERY old DikuMUD / Circle 2.0 bug that to my knowledge doesn't
work any more, for the reason you said.

Yes. Check do_bash if in doubt. :)

Yeah it works. Nothing much you can do with this one, its just mean.

the cityguards shouldn't sneak and hide.

This is a bug from another code base.

Again, another code base.

This one works like this:
Go to a crash save room, and die (somehow).
Have another character loot your corpse, then immediately crash the mud.
Log both chars back in, go to the crash save room, loot corpse, now you
have a dup of all your eq.  This is fixed by updating the crash save room
when things are taken from it (or from containers in it)

Another mud base.

This doesn't work unless you have ascii pfiles, in which case it might.
Check it out.

Hehe this probably won't work anyway. Having an immortal room is not a
function of being immortal.

> #13 - Hmm...

This is the same idea as the corpse bug before, in the crash save room.

> #14 - Not sure our locate object works that way.

#14 isn't locate object, which doesn't work that way. #14 is the wand one,
which I have no idea about.

All the crash bugs don't work. The money bugs are just stupid exploits
(ie: buy an auction item from a player with emote gives you 10000 coins.)

Exactly. No need to panic, imho.
