[Circle] Looking for help...

I am looking for a way to make the MUD itself send a player a MUD mail
.  I don't like the idea of the system sending out a send_to_char when 
the assassin fails or succeeds as the player may be long gone, and I hate 
sanity checks.  Also, I have other uses for it.  

In addition, I am wondering if there is a way to have a board message that
is also written by the system when an action is taken.  For example,
whenever someone hires an assassin it is posted on a board that certain
people can read.  Also, I am considering a 'bounty' idea where you can
place a price on someone's head, and if that person is killed, then
whoever kills them gets the gold.  (only players, not mobs)

And finally, I am looking for a way to have a character deleted when they 
are pkilled.  That way, assassinations will be more notable, as they MEAN 
something.  I will probably have it so that assassinations by the 
assassin mobs also delete the character, but I am still considering it.  
Since you can only be pkilled in 2 cases (a> you are in poolitics of the 
MUD woorld, or b> you are in a crime-ok room) there won't be too many 
problems, and since mobs can't delete/kill, you can advance through 
non-pkill means without feear.
