[MUD-Dev] Balance... RPG or Role-Playing Game?

RPGs today have come to mean something completely different than the
exact meaning of their acronyms. Usually you Play the Role of a Hero. NOT
an ordinary person. I feel that a MUD such as DartMud lacks that aspect.
People play games today for the combat. If you take that away, what does
the game ammount to... at toddlers RPG. I feel that Role Playing is good to
a point. If you play a role as deeply as some people feel you should, you
don't just get to fool around and have fun, it becomes a serious, full time
endeavor. Personally I prefer the kind of game that has you play the role
of a hero. It provides a greater relief from everyday life, and let's you
play occasionally for entertainment, instead of playing constantly to build
an online fake 'life'.
