Great bonus for deity-based MUDs.  If you worship a war-like deity,
sacrifices are great.  Experience bonuses, or maybe a sacrifice_points
addition to the char structure, which gives special bonuses.

For example, skills given by deities, or maybe even spells.  For example,
an evil deity may give the worshipper the ability to summon up a small
demon after 1000 sacrifices.

Hrm, good idea.  This could be factored in as above.

Seriously though, a good way to implement this would be to use body parts.
A good start for a body-part system comes from Jon Barrett's (I always
credit the wrong author) race body parts patch.

"Fly" and "land" would be commands only available if they have the body

Special cases - entering a sealed room, a tunnel, etc, can not be entered
while flying.  You can't land in a flying room, etc.  A spell giving the
wings wears off, and you plummet to your unfortunate death.

Be creative.  :)
