Lincoln Chan (who at least USED to be a member of this list) coded a
hunter system for me.  We first created a seeker spec that would track
folks across the MUD.  Then, we created a system whereby certain hunter
mobs would be loaded in particular locations and begin hunting characters
when other mobs were killed.  For example, we had some little bunnies in
an Irish setting and every time you killed one, a fairly mean-tempered mob
loaded and tracked you down.  We also have systems were if you kill a
hunter, a tougher hunter gets loaded.  Lots of fun for all.
