Here's a general idea as to how it is some of our 'basic' progs work to make the game function as it should. Let's take a look at the prog which will be introduced in the next edit for Panther Region, "Platinum Arena One":

mpedit panther add speech p Platinum Arena One
mptake 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
mptake 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
mptake 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
mptake 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
mptake 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
if ovnuminv(596) >= 5
sayto $n So you have the Platinum tokens...
else
sayto $n Sorry, $n. You seem to be missing some Platinum token(s).
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
break
endif
mptake 'Blood Arena Token' $n
if ovnuminv(597) >= 1
sayto $n And you have the Blood Arena Token(s)!
mpoload 579
sayto $n Here is your prize. Congratulations.
give 'Warlord Leather Breastplate' $n
mpjunk 'Platinum Arena Token'
mpjunk 'Platinum Arena Token'
mpjunk 'Platinum Arena Token'
mpjunk 'Platinum Arena Token'
mpjunk 'Platinum Arena Token'
mpjunk 'Blood Arena Token'
else
sayto $n I am sorry, $n, but you seem to be missing the token(s) I need.
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
give 'Platinum Arena Token' $n
break
endif

This is what is necessary for the prog to work the way similar progs like this one do. Maybe some of you understand this. Maybe some of you don't. But I am pretty sure most of you don't get it, which is fine, actually. Some of us play these MUDs without having a clue of what it is that "makes it work." Sometimes that's what adds excitement and fun to the game. But for the sake of education, I wanted to share this with some of you. :) This is one of the quote on quote "lesser" progs I tend to do. There are far more complex ones out there, rest assured.

Oh, and for those wondering. That prog alone is just to make this happen:

You say 'Platinum Arena One'
A panther quartermaster says to you 'So you have the Platinum tokens...'
A panther quartermaster exclaims to you, 'And you have the Blood Arena Token(s)!'
A panther quartermaster says to you 'Here is your prize. Congratulations.'
A panther quartermaster gives you a warlord's leather breastplate.

Here's also another little something I tend to make a lot with a lot of my areas. These are descriptions of some sort. It is what you see when you type "Look Bronze" to view the bronze rewards in the Panther Arena, the raw look of it is like this:

&OBronze Quality Rewards&D
&z----------------------&D
&z1.) &Ba miracle leaf &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena One&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z2.) &Ban invigorating leaf &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Two&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z3.) &Ba dark leaf &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Three&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z4.) &Ba light leaf &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Four&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z5.) &Ban antidote &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Five&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z6.) &Ban arena gourd&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Six&D
&z- &O5 bronze arena token&D
&z7.) &Ban arena bandage &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Seven&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z8.) &Oa slab of ribs &z(&wx5&z)&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Eight&D
&z- &O1 bronze arena token&D
&z9.) &Ba gigantic pack&D
&z- &CBronze Arena Nine&D
&z- &O10 bronze arena token&D
&z----------------------&D

Believe it or not, trying to be creative is what make this job a lot harder and lengthier than it should be. But the end results are amazing and well-worth the effort.
