   This has been suggested before and if yuo can get it up and running, more power to
you.  But the problem I see with a DragonRaid Mud is that so many muds are based on
combat and we know that is not what we are trying to teach with DR.  Now don't get me
wrong... I am an avid MUDer myself, but because so much of DR is based around
*teaching* and that teaching comes though discussion and RP I think it will be an
extra challenge to create a MUD that still has these elements.  Remember, the number
one question should always be, what is this *teaching*, otherwise we're just another
RP System.  If you can do it and keep the teaching - AWESOME!
