What exactly did you put in the safes for the thieves?  I can forsee 
players whipping up some basic thief characters to pick the safes again 
and again until they succeed.

Actually I am turnign Quiffy's place into a very high leve zone.  Small 
but very dangerous.

Where in zone 61?  She just seems so out of place anywhere but in the 
drow city or some new drow populated area.

I've re-worked this so is a very high level zone, a la Redferne's palace 
at Fajita DIKU

I'd recommend nuking it.  Totally out of place in diku I think.

I'd agree, the mahntor are was really well written.  It would take a bit 
to balance it out for Circle (no multiple attacks and things like that), 
but its worth it.  I have the orignial list of what specs and affects 
should go with each mob/obj as well if you need it.  Just email me.
