Rome is a stock zone and, I'm guessing, can be found on several hundred
Circle-based MUDs.  Talking about the low quality of stock areas is probably
pointless: we already know that it is quite minimal. :)

I do, however, recall my first time in that very spot.  I believe my
thought was more along the lines of, "Lions!  Why, the lions in <some
other zone on that mud> were worth tons of experience, this'll be great!"

Splat.
