You could check out http://www.scrymud.net/ if you want.  I used to
develop on this base, but some other folks are taking it forward
now.  It does have a java applet GUI that can drive the text-based
online builder (ie, you can have it both ways).

If you are a coder, you might could adapt it to work with other
systems, or at least use some of the ideas.  All the code is GPL
