It's a relatively simple matter to change the description of an object
for one play session, however, the descriptions are not stored in the
rent files (they are re-copied from the object prototypes), so when the
player unrents after quitting, the original description will be seen
instead of the new one (note:  This is the main reason why you can't
rent MUD Mail).  Unless you are prepared to mess with the way that
objects are stored in the rent files I would suggest a different
approach, perhaps creating different prototypes with the various
different descriptions and then exchanging one for the other instead of
trying to re-string the same object.
