Re: [CODE] A stable special proc

What you do is make an object (let's call it a "note") which is
redeemable at stables for the specified type of mount.

Then, when they stable their horse, they get the note and rent
(or quit) with the note.  When they return to the game, if they
want their mount back, they go back to the stables and redeem the
note, which is removed from their inventory and their mount is
placed in the room.

If you are really clever, you can make notes specific to a given
stable, so that the note might be for a clydesdale horse at the
stables of Midgaard, or for a camel at the stables of New Sparta.
If you try to redeem at the wrong stables, the stableboy rejects
the note: "You can't redeem that note here!  Try the stables in Rome!"
or whatever.

This is how mounts are handled in Arctic.
