I forgot about my special based blessed bit. This is really another
combat factor. So we can have five values determine combat rating!

(I know you're all groaning, but I actually think this is pretty cool. :-)

Rich's killer dragon:

(attack=500, defense=500, missile=0, speed=3x, 50% hits successful)

There was no resolution. My memory is determined by the mailbox
subjects that fit on my screen. :-)

Actually, I like the idea of a personal newbie shieldinstead of a location.
I'd probably do this in g2 instead, and have a number (say, five) of starting
cities. The cities wouldn't be safe havens, but newbies couldn't attack
or be attacked for a little while.
