Pls note that I'm not sure if this will work, I'm just going off the top
of my head here.

Put a new item flag, like ITEM_STAY in the appropriate areas(constants,
structs, etc.) and then put a check the extract char function to see if
an item is flagged ITEM_STAY and then figure out a way for it to ignore
those items(Don't have a clue how to do that)

In the quit function, make it set their loadroom equal to ch->in_room

You'll need to look for all the places where a player can enter the game,
check whether or not they are in a clan, and then define clan loadrooms
that it will send the player to.

>How to make the prompt customizable by the player

It should already be implemented with stock code

>How to use color on the title screen


Hopefully I'm not completely insane with these answers, they sound like
they'll work to me :)
