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!"
