        I'd use percent of hitpoints, drunkness/thirst/hunger, recent use
of certain emotes. Then, I'd try to figure out if someone was male between
the ages of 12 and 18, and give them a high point value on the
sexual-frustration-o-meter.  I'd also do something like time between
gaining levels (general frustration vs. happiness).  Maybe something like
death would be uh.. intensely mood affecting (I know I'd be pissed off).

        Possibly grouping would change your mood too - the group would
trend towards the average of everyone elses mood.  Anything marriage/etc
related would of course also affect it, but you may want to just skip that
