So in my sparetime I have been writing this open-source game, a mmorpg called a MUD (no graphics in the typical sense, all ncurses based).

Anyway, I never would have thought the most complicated part of writing the game engine would have possibly been the handling of pronouns! The number of variations you have to consider is astounding when you really try to catalog all the different types.

I think I finally got them all covered though.


@freemo you are taking me back about 25 years to when a few college buddies and I created SPAM MUD, they did the vast majority of coding. I really appreciated the general attention to language and writing that it required.

@ZingerLearns I find doing GUI/graphical apps quite tedious and boring.. the text based nature of a MUD on the otherhand is quite enjoyable.
