Well.. I've never had a peek at ROM code nor have I played on any ROM MUDs
(i'm loyal to Circle since my first MUD experience in 1997).. but I can
suggest something.

Get OasisOLC. That's Oasis OnLine Creation -- if you haven't modified
anything much in your copy of CircleMUD.. simply get the patch for the
latest version of OasisOLC (v1.6b?) at (may be changed to by now).

You could ask George <greerga@CircleMUD.ORG> for more help, he's the guy
who maintains OasisOLC's source code to this day. If you have questions
that relate more to CircleMUD, read the FAQ and the docs first then give us
a call.
