You might want to clean it up a bit and try to shop it around.  I can
tell you from experience, having a robust, mature, *stable* MUD
codebase without the copyright issues of most GPL'd codebases can be
one hell of a head start for a MMOG project (DAoC's servers are built
on a codebase that's been in development since Mark Jacob's Aradath
MUD, and server stability has been a non-issue for the most part
because of the maturity of the system).
