Hmm... From the ~150 flags that are currently coded I have about 10 or so
that I would label as being "rare". All the rest would be fairly command and
usable on a "daily basis".

My goal with the MUD is to concentrate on the mobs enough so that they are
more interactive and intelligent. I don't plan on coding any AIs into the
MUD, but I want them to be more than just targets for the nearest XP-hungry

All the obj flags are there to make items more interesting and unusual...
and, in some cases, deadly.  *grin*  (I love being an evil bastard sometimes.)
