In your zone file where you set the loading of objects and items, there is a
field for the "maximum number" that can exist on the MUD at any given time.
You should set it to 1.  That will mean you will have to create a unique
bell vnum for use in this room, and won't be able to use the archetype
elsewhere in the world, lest your room not load properly.
