Sounds like you want DG Events.  Or at least I would.

On my own personal MUD (long since dead), I made PULSE_VIOLENCE get called
four times as often.  Each set of 4 was considered one "round." Simple,
easy, but I also didn't take into account initiative or weapon speeds.

It does mean one thing: any popular game _won't_ use their system, which
means no benefit at all for them (and probably a drawback, more systems in
the world).  Those BattleTech MUXs are quite interesting and also really
want a rulebook reference.
