It would seem to me that you don't need a system.  PC's relationships and
results in this case can be an entirely role-playing matter.  I assume your
mud is heavy on the role playing side.  In this case I think it would be
best if they just role-played having the child etc.  When time came that the
child would be able to "adventure" he/she could be entered as a new
character etc.  I don't see a pressing need for a code based system to
handle this when role-playing should suffice.  This way you avoid having the
child killed, people getting raped etc. etc.
