The interaction between the server and a character, the heartbeat is the timing mechanism used by the MUD to determine regeneration, weather, when monsters move, etc. When the MUD indicates "you have no heartbeat!" try using the defibrillate command. Without a heartbeat, any task involving time (combat, spellcasting, skill use, etc.) can not happen.
