        How would it not exist? in config.c I believe, it has lines that
says Immort_start_room = 1204, mort_start_room = 3001. And when I negate
the load_room code with the load_room = NOWHERE at the top of 1 in
interpreter.c, everything works ok (though oviously everyone loads in
their respective ?_start_rooms.
        This is how I am deciphering the code:
if ((load_room = GET_LOADROOM(d->character)) != NOWHERE)
load_room = real_room(GET_LOADROOM(d->character));
        Ok, this is looking to see if the rnum of LOADROOM is actually in
the world, if it is, converts it to its vnum, otherwise, load_room is
assigned NOWHERE.
        Next it goes to assigning it either immort_start_room or
mort_start_room, if load_room is NOWHERE
        Now, the next part is what is confusing me. What exactly is the
line if (load_result = Crash_load(d->character)) doing? I am not that
eperienced and have not gone through all the functions to see what they
are doing, so this one remains a mystery.
        SO, my code goes:
        char_to_room(d->character, load_room);
        if (load_result = Crash_load(d->character))
        if <U R MORT, U R NOT FROZEN> {
           char_to_room(d->character, load_room)

        Exactly what is the above doing? why does it send you to a room,
pull you into Nowhere, and then put you back?
