Set up a group for each mud (or one for all three if thats all you need)
and put the appropriate users in those groups.  Then make sure that all
the files in the mud have group ownership set to the appropriate group(s)
at which point the members of the groups should be able to edit them.
For directories were files will be added (such as were the world files
are stored) you probably want to set 'chmod g+s' (the 's' bit for the
group) so that all files created in that directories have group ownership
that is the same as the directories (did that make sense?)

see also: man group, man chmod  ;)
