1. Exactly. I don't want to overwork my builders, having to write 48
descriptions for each room. SO I was thinking about a scripting system. An

@desc = if(height(%ch) < 4)
           print("The trees loom high above you, casting a deep shadow over
the region.");
        else {
           print("You see a few shrubs around.");
        case (<4) { print("You feel lonely here, as you are so new."); }
        case (5)  { print("This isn't all that bad."); }
        case (>5) { print("You're the greatest player around..."); }

There are 6 possible outcomes with this simple script, but it's not all
_that_ long. Oh, and if I asked the builders to create 8 room descriptions
for every room they probably would. Especially seeing as I'm paying them by
the hour to write room descriptions.
