I am a little unsure about all this with valid_name and other things and I
have some questions.

Does this immortal check happen before or after the person has entered the
correct password?  I.e. does it happen right when they enter their name, or
after they have also entered the correct password?

I experienced some problems with this when I tried to let linkless
immortals login after they had frozen in OLC or in the main menu, so I am
curious to how you solved it?

Kind regards,
