I think it needs an update, because of the added -stat, it doesn't make it
worth the rent anymore, because of the timed thing...its a nice item for
surgeons/druids alike, but i think the timed should be removed, or the
rent be decreased...

All the abbey items recently went thru a review to update them for the
current building specs. Many items had the NO_PRESERVE flag removed
and/or had their rent lowered, but this item I left alone. For a +10
stat item, even with the balancing -5, its rent is quite reasonable.
It does have a small, additional discount for being timed. I can't
recall anymore if I put the -stats on it or if someone else did that
for me (used to be, timed no-preserve was good enuf to not require
other minuses) but if I were to redo the item now, I think -mind
would be more appropriate (religion not being notable for encouraging
its adherents to think for themselves). Since anyone who uses this
item probably also has need of mind, I suspect you'd rather I just
leave it alone.
BTW, I don't read the discussion board regularly. An issue like this is
better sent through mudmail. =)
