How would you go about doing a pwipe? Delete every pfile there is?

Yup. Personally I just remove the whole player/ directory tree (actually I rename it) and create a new one using a script. You need to ensure that all of the sub directories are re-created (a-z), if you do it that way though. After all of that, log on, create a new char for yourself, save and quit and modify your pfile to give you your imm privledges back.

There is also a snippet that will do all the work for you. www.Alsherok.net, click on the code link on the left and look for 'Pfile Pruning Code V2.0'. That should help you out.

I would suggest that you make a backup of your Immortal pfiles so you can just restore them and not have to recreate each one.

That code isn't meant for doing a blanket pwipe. It's only meant to drop outdated pfiles as they age. If you want to do a total pwipe you still need to do it the traditional way :)
