Think of their whole life as a play made up of lots and lots of short,
more or less interconnected scenes.  Like chapters in a book or scenes
in a road movie.  There is a story there - the story of A Player and
it interacts with the stories of all of the other players.  Can a mud
survive without giving each player a chance to create their own fairly
rewarding story?
