It would be pretty useful to have a help file for each zone, for example, HELP JOTUNHEIM would provide a bit of lore info and maybe even some practical advice for that zone. Sort of a teaser-hook that gives players an idea of what that place has in store for them. We could put in place a command, ‘help zone’, that would display the help file for that particular zone. This could also just be managed with the current help system, meaning that there would be a help entry for each zone.
What do you think builders? Would you like to have a way to give a brief overview (1-2 paragraphs) of your zone to whet the appetite of any potential visitors?

I was thinkign it would be a great idea for having two entries in zedit:
1) Loreless info
2) Lore info
You can make a knowledge check to access #2
And the builder could then type up the descriptions for these two entries and players could access it with a special command (as opposed to a help file).
What do you guys think of that idea?
I like that idea Zusuk. Each builder will be responsible for creating their own lore this way. This idea overall is great, but it is going to be a ton of work on all the old zones, especially boring stock ones.
