War - Frequently Asked Questions 
(Q) If I die, does it carry over to the mud?      
(A) Changes made to your character during         
    the war will not be saved. So if you die,     
    lose your money, or anything, when the war    
    is over your old character will be back.      
(Q) What does happen when I die?                 
(A) Once you die in the war, you will be destructed
    and will not be allowed to enter until the war
    is over.  Any experience gained from war     
    victories will be awarded when you log into the    
    mud again.                                    
(Q) How do I heal during a war?                    
(A) All pubs/healing shops will be closed for the  
    entire duration of the war.  You can heal,     
    though, by eating the corpses of slain players 
    and by buying healing potions with your        
    'purchase points' (displayed by typing list    
    after the war has begun).                        
(Q) What do I fight with during the War?            
(A) Everyone will be provided with free weapons and 
    armor. However, if you prefer, you may go out   
    and hunt down your own weapon/armor.             
(Q) What happens if I survive?                       
(A) You are awarded bonus experience points the      
    next time you log into the mud.                  
(Q) Are there any restrictions or rules of engagement?
(A) Macros (keys set to enter multiple commands
    upon a keystroke) and Trigger programs (those
    designed to send commands when a particular 
    line of text is received) are ILLEGAL!
    Beyond that, there are no rules.
(Q) What happens if I lose my link during a war?
(A) If you quit during the war you will instantly forfeit.
    You will also forfeit if you are linkdead when the
    voting on the type of war ceases and the war begins.
    You may not necessarily forfeit if you lose your
    link afterward, but other players will be free to
    kill you.  If you should die or lose your link,
    there is a special viewing room where you can watch
    the progress of the war.

(Q) Can I save my equipment before the war begins?
(A) There are locker rooms placed strategically around
    Tsunami.  The 'shop' command will take you to the
    nearest general shop, and a locker room will be
    located nearby.  This command is active in the
    5 minutes that precede the mud shutting down in
    preparation for war.

(Q) What if I log into the war late?  Is there anything
    to do while I wait for the mud to come back up?
(A) There are rooms with simulated card games that
    you may use to pass the time should you so desire.
