My login setup currently asks you to choose 1 or 2 for an account or
character login respectively, or enter a character name. The account
system would provide character management tools (and will replace normal
logins, with character-name-bypass operating, most likely only for admin).

I like the menu style you have, though, and can't really think of anything
I'd add or remove.. although I would probably not list #6, I'd bundle that
into the introductory docs. :)
