Check the archives in case someone dropped some actual

As far as suggestions, I know I'd handle it with IDNUMs.
First, I'd make it so that players can edit their long

make an "introduce" command that uses it. Finally, a
simple check in list_one_char would check to see it

the victim's name and title, otherwise print the long

I played an RP mud once that had this feature, and although
PK wasn't allowed, the immortals were constantly having to
rescue some poor guy with a long description like:
"A dark, shapeless figure stands here." The other players
thought he was a MOB and carnage ensued...

Hope this helps, or at least makes it look like I tried to
help. I did... Really.
