I have come back and made a couple of important changes: There is now a minimum percentage for armour to avoid them having no protective value. New players entering Avalon will no longer cause a crash. Durgash and his like have been weakened according to reasonable skills. All Gods have the ability to move players when offline, hence countering any recurrence of the Kobyashi/Elviron saga. Food, like armour, now has a minimum edible value which will ensure its potency. I have been through the bug file and the errors file and have corrected all that I could find. Regarding stability of Avalon - as we do not monitor 24 hours a day and cannot spend anything near that on maintenance we can only continue to promise to do our best. The alternative life takes time to perfect.
