Future scanario with approx. 100 players logged in...

gos Hey everyone try this alias out I just came up with which will take
you into the secret passage uder the staircase...
gos alias get candle;light candle;put candle in candleholder;turn
candleholder;enter passage

everywhere as the HDD on the server crunches trying to keep up with the
