"setting" of the zones that was about it. At first we decided to go with 5
zones, seeing that should be enough (Anyone here build more than 500 rooms
with decent content in one week, I'd like to hear from them.. :). Of
course this requires a change in the plrfile, or a plrwipe though the
latter is silly! :)

We're currently Developing the next version of the mud, and in that one
great deals of plr-related stuff is placed in various SQL-Tables. To make
it very simple, I stripped the zone information from the player, replacing
the "zoneallowance" with a call to the SQL, if this call returns true, the
player has allowance, otherwise not. The effect is that there's no upper
limit for the amount of zones, Once a zone is assigned, it keeps being
