who gives a fuck what you're sick of..if it bothers you that much filter
out anything with those words in the subject..this list IS for discussing
things relevant to running a circle mud including code, policy, and all
other aspects of administering and running a mud..

why police when you can code out the possibility of infringements..

the mental endurance thing is pretty trivial..just copy hit, mana, and
movement points..they have all of the functions for regenerating, and
affects from spells, etc..shrug..that's all there is to it, and the reason
you didn't get a response was probably because most people thought that it
was pretty obvious..maybe i missed it, but what would running out of these
spirit points do? make you flee from combat? pass out?

as for the other, i think you're referring to the idea that certain
positive or negative occurances have an effect on the game through npc
demeaner or might want to just modify the alignment stat so that
it is adjusted by more than just the alignment of who the character
