Questions about Keywords and other Intro System Issues

From: Mathew Earle Reuther (

My chargen currently produces characters who are described using two
features.  Both features are intended for use when the character is
encountered in a room, with only the first being used when they move
around, etc.

Some issues I have are:

I'm unsure how to use act() with these features.  For example in
    act("$n has arrived.", TRUE, ch, 0, 0, TO_ROOM);
Instead of "Trumble has arrived" I want it to say "A skinny dwarf man has
arrived"  (a skinny is the first feature of this character in the
example).  Of course, this is only true when the person is not introduced.
Do I need to adapt the introduction system prior to addressing these
issues, or should I address them before?

I need to figure out a way to allow race and gender to be automatic
keywords for action.  So people can 'exa elf' or 'kill man'.  How would
this best be accomplished?
