 Sounds like you've got the wrong kind of builders. The most important
 think to look for in a builder is writing ability and imagination -
 game balance is irrelevant if the game isn't enjoyable. Descriptions
 are the single most important thing in a MUD (kind of). Anyone can
 make a mob using OLC, or even a text editor or piece of paper if
 they've got the patience, but good writing is what makes a MUD great.
 After all, it's a text-based game, and if the text sucks, the game
 sucks. OLC is fine if you've got the right people using it.
