as far as i know, character's long_desc aint used in stock circle. we use it
for somethin like this, camo/disguise... works fine. we use short_desc for a
'name' that players can string so they can have extended names. ie:
Brother Dert the Elven Monk
well my name is dert, but my short is Brother Dert.
for your purpose i think you wanna use long_desc :)
