[IDEA] Seasonal descriptions

Just an idea here, but if your builders have nothing to do....

Get them to write up 4 room descriptions for each room, then
modify db.c to read in all the descriptions, and then, according
to the current season, load the correct one. ie,

This looks like a nice town square. The sun shines brightly overhead,
and the water in the town fountain sparkles with the sunlight.
Leaves cover most of the town square when you have a look around. The
elms, oaks and beeches around the area are bearing their leaves, and
subsequently the leaves have clutted around your feet.
The winter snow is evident here. There is snow under your feet, snow
on top of the fountain....the water is even frozen! No point drinking
out of there then.
The suns shines at its zenith on this wonderful spring day. Birds
squeel, as do the village children.

These are extremely bad descriptions, so don't use them in your MUD :)
You can also use this for night and day descriptions, which is what
we will be using in our MUD. Hope this gives ya a bit of an idea...
