FAQ 2.10 - Custom Player Strings
There are seven types of strings that are settable on players:
Ground string - 1000 credits
Sleep string - 1000 credits
Rest string - 1000 credits
Recall strings - 1000 credits
Fire spell colors - 1000 credits
Crystal spell colors - 1000 credits
Lightning spell colors - 1000 credits

All strings MUST contain the full, proper, and capitalized name of the
player. Other players must be able to identify a player from the ground
