Nothing's wrong with that. However, most MUDs *pretend* to support
roleplaying, and *ostensibly* provide a "world" in which your "character"
can "adventure" -- when they're really just scavenger hunts. If you don't
support roleplaying, don't pretend to. If you claim to have a world and
characters and adventures, then people should be expected to play their
characters as part of this world while they participate in these
adventures. If this is not acceptable behavior, then don't *pretend* it is.
