***********************************************************************
ADMIN CHANGE
***********************************************************************
If you've been watching the helpfiles like a hawk, you'll have noticed 
that some language was changed or removed regarding cross play. With 
the mud now stable, it's impossible to know if an item in a box was 
one an alt put in there or if someone else put one in there. So we've 
removed much of the non-destructive cross-play language from the game.
If you want to go get another one of your characters something, 
you can.

***********************************************************************
NEW ACCOUNT FEATURES
***********************************************************************
ACCOUNT BANK
  * Accounts now have a shared bank.
  * It is limited to 2,000,000,000 gold.
  * Account bank can't drop below 0.
  * You can use the BANKTRANSFER command to transfer gold to and from 
    the account free of charge (normal withdrawl charges still apply).
  * Use BANKTRANSFER -<amount> to transfer from account bank to your 
    character's bank. Use BANKTRANSFER <amount> to transfer from 
    your character's bank to the account bank.  
  * Account bank will NOT pay your housing charges or be used in any 
    way automatically.

    items, etc.

SHIELD SLOT
* You can only have one <worn as shield> slot. It still  takes up a 
  HOLD slot but you can only have one (like you can only WIELD one 
  item)
* BOOK OF LAWS changed to HOLD & SHIELD. Use as either. 
* Also note that items can have more than just a slot + hold now. 
  Don't know off hand how far this is spread but items can be worn with 
  WEAR <item> ON <slot> if the item is coded to support it

MISCELLANY
* You can use the PETITION command to request a description if you 
  do not already have one. PETITION DESCRIPTION to start the process.
* Healing balm works again. 
* Shortly after you level (about 2 seconds or so), the game will now 
  alert you to the new skills you qualify for based on gaining that 
  level. 

SCRAP CHANGES

  * Items reduced to 0 item hit points will now have a (scrapped) 
    condition. 
  * They can be repaired (mended/trueformed) in this condition
  * If an item is scrapped, it gets placed in your inventory
  * You cannot wear a scrapped item until is repaired
