No, we're not considering that race he was referring to currently. As for Cyric, he's semi-retired and busy with real life. He may come back someday, he may not.

Re: Shevarash, how about a no racewar WEEK

I like the idea of a test. This would require some code alterations though - it's not as easy as just suspending the rules like it is for multiplay. I'll give it some thought.

(Moving this to gameplay discussion because I think you put it in the wrong forum.)

However, we can schedule another multiplay weekend for the long labor day weekend from 9/4 - 9/7. I'll post again after this weekend for it, but you cna mark it on your calendars now.

I'm not very impressed with cMud thus far. I like a lot of things about it, but the fact that I can't figure out how to turn off the irritating script parsing (can't put things in parans, can't use equal signs, etc) is souring me pretty quick on it.
