D'oh. Good point.

I'll fix that too.

I've spent enough time on MU*s to know that people don't make the
distinction between "things" and "objects", or at least use the words

In the MUX documentation, it says that there are four types of objects:
Player, Room, Exit, and Thing.

People on MUXes say that there are four types of things:
Player, Room, Exit, and Object.

The distinction leads to confusingly-written tutorials and buggy code,
so I'd rather avoid having to make it here.

Yes, but it is still not clear whether the Administrator would be
required to put every individual dice roll into the page. This rule may
be useful for other situations as well.
