Re: Auction mail

Good idea, but I would opt more for a mmail sent when you are overbid. You can check to see if you won something, and it'll keep for a number of game months, but the clock is ticking on an overbid.

If concerned about spam, could make it so a mmail is only sent if a person is offline.

My own question revolves around the fact that this has been described as an 'opportunity' to reroll stats.

If the stats are currently better than is possible under the point buy, do we have the 'opportunity' to use the current stats?
