One problem I have with this is it limits a players ability who wishes to
role play by having a pre set description. One thing I plan on doing if I
can get it to work, is have an authorization code placed in so characters
wishing to play need to first be approved. This way the immortal can check
the characters descs and make sure everything is in order, and ,ake the
nessasary changes if need be.
