Suggestion: Close vending shops upon death
Close vending and buying shops upon merchant's death.
Avoid changing ToS and/or map functionality and minimize necessity for GM support when a shop is blatantly in the way as it almost regularly happens in beach_dun02 or mag_dun02. On less dangerous maps a Homunculus or an equipped sensible build will be sufficient in keeping the merchant safe and the newbies supplied.
Nothing else really. Thanks for your consideration.
