Hi guys,

What would you think a group of GM's (in the P&P sense) going around to
different muds running scenarios?  I envisage something like Larry Niven's
Dream Park series, one GM with a bunch of helpers who carry out the
roleplaying and maybe stuff like writing code.

Technically, I don't think there are many obstacles unless the GM had some
really ambitious ideas that could only be carried out by modifying the
codebase/mudlib/core.  The main roadblock is political, this Company would
need to have access to stats, mud internals and so forth for the special
effects.  That would mean maybe a couple weeks of having to put up with
total strangers tearing up your mud and poking their noses everywhere.

Maybe after 6 months and a few good shows, this Company will gain a rep
for themselves and become an attraction in itself but the initial foot in
the door is going to be a hard one.  Anyway, this appeals to me coz it
allows a grand tour of the mudding universe as a businessman. :)  Shame I
no longer have time for this sort of thing.

As always, just a thought.
