Re: Newbie? Death System

Player Dies:
  -> AFF_GHOST is set on player.  Make flag allow for passing through doors,
     but no taking/interaction with objects, emoting, or speaking.
  -> make_corpse() on the character who died (so the ghost can't carry the
     objs.  May or may not want to make corpses unable to be stolen from.
     May want to extend/deactivate decomposition time.
  -> Make a temple spec_proc which removes the AFF_GHOST flag.  I personally
     would make it so that they now must find their equipment.  Otherwise,
     go through the object list until you find the character's corpse, and
     move the object's inventory into the player's.
  -> Deal with corpse object.
