I was surprised to notice that there isn't a command in the stock afkmud code for making a campfire without camping. Why do you need fire without camping? If I want to use the slice command and then cook the food, I need access to a campfire in order to cook it. Same if I want to brew potions. I think a command to make the campfire, other than the camp command which also logs you out, would be a good idea.
Can a command be added to commands.dat that calls make_campfire or was is make_campfire not suitable for calling from a command? Maybe the light command could be expanded so you can light pipes and firewood.
Also, the decay rate of a sliced hunk of meat seems pretty fast in the stock code.
