Note on this...

On the mud I coded and am (still) working on, we scummed an idea off of
Raymond E. Fiest's Riftwar trilogy.  In every mage guild, there's a
"pattern room," with various "patterns" inside.  Mages cast teleport on a
particular pattern (which is described by words like wavy, woven, etc. --
they have to figure out what goes to which) and are themselves teleported
to another pattern room in another guild. Since teleport is on the
upper-mid level range on our mud, it works out well for enabling
transportation to different parts of the world, without actually putting
them into a "zone for killing things and getting xp."
