|Many of the game actions are based upon interval timers, including combat,
most autonomous monster actions, hp/mana/move regeneration, spell duration,
weather, and area resetting.
Of these timers, the hp/mana/move regeneration timer is popularly called the
'tick'. Ticks on this mud are 30 seconds of real time.
Area resetting happens roughly every 3 minutes if no one is in the area; less
often (15 minutes) if some one is. Also note that objects lying on the ground
will not be regenerated if anyone is in the area when it resets.
