        Uh. why do you have to make immortality dependant upon level?
Sounds foolhardy to me.  Just add an new var - immort_levels or something.
As for infinite levels, you are going to want to think hard about this.

        If you keep gaining stats, won't you eventually have to make mobs
and eq to fit those new stats?  You're going to have to generate new
areas at an incredible pace.

        Even then, no one will be able to group easily - if the levels are
infinite, the chances of two people being close to the same level is very

        Not to mention that you'll be adding skills/spells along the way -
no one wants to level for ever for just some hit points.

        Sounds like you might better achieve your goal by going level-less
and working on a class based system, but that's just IMHO.
