- noun The MUD equivalent of what mainstream computer people
would call a "wizard", except that in MUD this term is already
taken (and is gender-specific, to boot!). Many players claim to
be - indeed actually are - addicts, but they don't have the
kind of deep knowledge of the game that true addicts possess.
Being a true addict is something you have to work at, although
not all true addicts bother to make wiz since some consider
that the life of pampered luxury which such individuals enjoy
will prove corrupting in the long term. It is always
understood, however, that a non-wiz true addict
could make wiz
at any time he or she desired. True addicts can quickly
determine other true addicts from addicts, by means known only
to themselves... True addicts are never ever plodders - the two terms
are mutually exclusive. See real addict.
