10.4.8 THE MINISTRY OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS

The Ministry of Cultural Affairs is responsible for holding events      
within the city, and generally keeping the morale of the citizens high. 
Those holding this office are encouraged to come up with innovative, fun
events for citizens. If they are successful, we may support them with   
custom code.                                                            

Aside from unsupported events, this Ministry is responsible for any     
Arenas that the city owns.                                              

The commands associated with the Ministry of Cultural Affairs are as    
follows.                                                                

Note: These commands will only work on an Arena owned by your city.

ARENA SHOW <arena>
 - Let's you see information about an Arena. For instance: ARENA SHOW    
   CAANAE would show Caanae's Arena, assuming it had one.
 - See the end of this help file for an example SHOW.

ARENA SET <arena> FULLNAME <name of Arena>
 - This lets you rename your Arena's full name. This does not affect the 
   name that is used for these commands, but the long name, e.g. The       
   Aryana Arena.                                                          

ARENA SET <arena> FEE <fee> [optional: PER LEVEL]
 - With this, you set the fee that your Arena will charge people. If you 
   do not include the words 'per level' at the end, the fee you set will be
   a flat fee that will apply equally to everybody. If you include 'per    
   level' then the fee you have will be multiplied by the player's level.  
   You will end up netting 1/3 of the total fees the players pay, as the   
   winner gets 2/3 of the fees paid, at least in the case of Duels.        

ARENA SETUP <arena> ALLOW <organization / player>
 - By default, your Arena will be able to be used by anyone in the case  
   of the various events. Doing this will limit the next event to whichever   
   organizations (cities, orders, clans, guilds) you specify. You may also 
   specify individuals. You can allow as many organizations and individuals
   as you like.
 - In order to select an Order, use the name of the God.

ARENA SETUP <arena> DISALLOW <organization / player>
 - If you've already set someone or some organization as allowed, this   
   will reverse it.

ARENA SETUP <arena> MAXLEVEL <maximum level>
 - Only those whose level is equal to or under the maximum level will be 
   able to participate in the next event.

ARENA SETUP <arena> MINLEVEL <minimum level>
 - Only those whose level is equal to or greater than the minimum level  
   will be able to participate in the next event.

ARENA SETUP <arena> TEAMS <count>
 - How many teams, from 2 to 4, are participating in a team event.

ARENA SETUP <arena> TEAMASSIGN <ON/OFF>
 - If enabled, the arena will automatically assign players into teams.
 - If disabled, players can pick a team when entering a team event.

ARENA SETUP <arena> HILLCOUNT <1-5>
 - How many hills there will be in play for the King-of-the-Hill game.

ARENA RESET <arena>
 - Resets an arena. Kicks everybody in it out and clears off any event.  

ARENA WITHDRAW <arena> <amount>
 - Withdraw gold from an Arena.

ARENA DEPOSIT <arena> <amount>
 - Deposit gold in the operating account of an Arena.

INIT <event> <arena>
 - Initializes an event in an Arena. You will want to do any SETUP       
   commands on the Arena first. Example: INIT FREEFORALL CAANAE. All 
   players who can participate in the event will see a message offering 
   them the chance to join.
 - Possible events are, providing your Arena is equipped with them:
     freeforall, freezetag, baitgame, foxandhound, bloodbath,
     deathball, manhunt, teamffa, and koth
 - The price to add a game to your arena is currently set at 2,000,0000 gold. (2Mill)
 - To purchase another event for your arena create an ORGREQUEST or speak with an Entity. <HELP ORGREQUEST/HELP ENTITIES>
 - The fee to host a game is currently 3,000 gold. (3k)

START <event> <arena>
 - Begins an event. Example START BAITGAME CAANAE.

END <event> <arena>
 - Prematurely end an event. This is marginally better to use than ARENA 
   RESET if an event is already started.

ARENALOG <arena> <line to start at>
 - See what has recently been done with an arena
